Previous Actions

  • John to file bugs for next week's EOL MU prompts.
    • bugs now filed, joduinn 10apr2012
  • Marcia to come up with affected 10.5 Java versions

Schedule Update

  • Our expectation is that the OS X 10.5 java block will go out today/tomorrow
  • Beta 5 will be released tomorrow (4/13)
  • Code freeze for FF12 is also tomorrow
    • Overall, things are looking pretty good (only 5 non-security bugs tracked for FF12's release)
  • First 3.6 (EOL) MU prompts will occur next week
  • De-support add-on hotfix expected to test and roll out to the beta population next week
    • Meeting to answer open questions and finalize testing held tomorrow (4/13 @ TBA)
  • Testing of 3.6->12 WN page is also upcoming
  • Beta 6 go-to-build expected Monday (4/16)
  • Final FF12 and ESR builds next Friday (4/21)
  • FF12's release (4/24)
    • The full block in bug 741592 will be implemented at that time





  • bug 738661 – crash in nmsvc from CovenantEyes
    • No longer a top crasher (and is believed to be an external issue), so we've deprioritized its investigation
  • bug 741179 – crash in nsDiskCacheBlockFile::Write
    • We have no leads at this point other than a hypothesis that NSPR may be implicated
    • Startup crasher, but the crash signature actually rose in Beta 4 instead of dropping, so there's little reason to believe this is an 100% of the time startup crasher
  • bug 673543 – crash nsDiskCacheMap::DeleteRecord
    • Not a FF12 regression, can discuss uplifting a fix if/when nominated (unlikely)
  • bug 738640 – [10.7] crash in -[BaseWindow dealloc], caused by bug in RoboForm extension
    • Patch available, need to weigh the risk of taking the patch in beta 6 versus blocklisting the affected version of RoboForm on OS X







  • Fx 12 release day
    • Jaclyn F is on point for 4/24 for PMM, Grace J will be on point the rest of the week with Laura M.
    • Mark L on point on 4/24 for PR.
    • Erica J and Laura M can be reached as needed over release week.
  • Is it possible to build an uninstall page in to Fx flow?
  • Has anyone ever heard of Firefox Portable App?


  • Future: mozilla-beta nightlies
    • Background updates will be landing in FF14 or 15
    • Benefits of nightlies: shorter verification turn-around time, freed up RelEng/QA resources, late-breaking beta issues can be much more easily resolved
    • We should start scoping work and identifying problems for nightlies when Firefox 15 is on mozilla-beta (14 weeks away)
    • Crash-stats & Support implications of having many beta build IDs
    • QA implications since sign-offs would no longer be feasible - automate update testing
    • Approval implications - always need to land on Aurora first, then on Beta
