Firefox Development

  • [ON TRACK] Feature complete Firefox 4
    • [DONE] Switch to Tab
    • [DONE] App Tabs - Scope for 4.0 reduced (non-global), near feature complete.
    • [DONE] Extension Manager - Bug list is converging, still a lot of work to do.
    • [DONE] Web Console
    • [ON TRACK] Notification UI - Geo and EM notifications done, http auth next.
    • [ON TRACK] New Theme - Windows and Mac good, Linux catching up now
    • [DONE] TabCandy Panorama
    • [AT RISK] Silent updates on Windows
    • [DROPPED] Inspector
    • [DROPPED] Account Manager - WIP patches posted, but we can't contain the review load and code risk.
  • [AT RISK] Dirty profile startup within 20% of clean profile startup (modulo extensions, plugins; on windows)
    • Current status: Lots of data has been collected and analyzed, but no solid conclusions have shaken out.
    • Details page
    • Shawn has an updated blog post. Read it for more info.
    • Bugs on file that help:

(Note: work is underway on the JavaScript server, but it has been dropped as a goal because the developer tools group has been entirely refocused on Firefox developer tools this quarter.)

  • [DONE] No feature-level blocking bugs left for integrated Firefox 4 Console
