General Topics

  • People:TRIBE
  • Removal of "Enable JavaScript" and "Load images automatically" in Firefox 23
    • For me, this has rendered this version of Firefox unusable, and my only alternative was to uninstall it and reinstall 22. I hope that these option checkboxes will be restored in Firefox 24.

Friends of the Firefox team

Give a shoutout/thanks to people for helping fix and test bugs.

  • brinks7 who (although ~2.5 years ago) provided a great STR that helped _a lot_ with finally fixing bug 637020. [ttaubert]
  • for providing lots of helpful comments on recent SessionStore improvements and regressions. [ttaubert]

Project Updates


  • Still fighting performance regressions. Not much to say beyond that. Pushing as hard as we can.
  • Trying to get more help from the Graphics and Layout teams.

Downloads API

  • It is a matter of days before switching the preference
  • Will wait before posting the bi-weekly update to firefox-dev


  • Lots of open bugs, many due to IPC. Exposed lots of problems in the browser's e10s implementation, such as it is so far.
  • See dependency tree.
  • Apparently background thumbnails break AdBlockPlus and possibly other add-ons, for some definition of "break." See bug 904341.


  • Lots of smaller code cleanups that help us understand more details and maintain SessionStore.
  • Work on reducing SessionStore impact when creating tabs to restore a session (bug 900803 and bug 901137) in progress.
  • We are working on introducing an API to store data per session bug 899213, just like Scratchpad does.
  • Fixed a very long-standing data loss issue bug 637020 that could make us lose whole windows when crashing at or shortly after startup.
  • Getting closer to move first parts of the data collection to content scripts, bug 894595, bug 903388, and bug 904003.

Places API asyncification

Social API

  • met with potential new providers
  • w3c social standards workshop wrapped up
  • refocus on getting to review stage for better multi provider support


UX Updates


  • Encouraging more design contributors
    • what would be useful for engineers?
  • Browser hanging up
    • Working on it
    • I am not saying I usually have 23 tabs open (right now there are only 21), but this time the hang up was because the popup box saying do you want to shut down the plug in was hidden (shouldn't that be top level, and what happens if two windows want to be top level?). I have to say that I yearn for the old days when I could just use the lean and mean Opera that never hung up ever. This was probably over 5 years ago now. And I know it is almost useless for me to even be complaining about hang ups when I am using Windows (7?), instead of just switching to Linux...

Stand ups

Suggested format:

  • What did you do last week?
  • What are working on this week?
  • Anything blocking you?
