  • AddonRepository bug 853389: feedback from Blair implemented and going through tests now, met with Irving to discuss file writing stuff and with Irving and Mossop to discuss downgrade concerns
  • Fixed intermittent bug343515.js orange (bug 765192)
  • Reviewed all 31 GSoC applications once and two-pass reviews on the project I'm gonna mentor





  • Landed a couple of "panel" features and patches to make Social use them.
  • Landed the async form history patch after fixing an orange which caused it to be backed out.
  • Getting my head around the e10s work and made a start on moving the form observer and autocomplete to an out-of-process message-based model.



  • Jamun branch is dead - Australis work is happening solely on UX branch now.
  • As per UX request, I've moved the star button back into the URL bar for now while I work on the new bookmark widget for Australis. Merged this change into UX.
  • Fixed strange appearance of popups on OSX
  • Been tackling randomly failing tests under browser/base/content/test. Very frustrating.
  • Laid out a rough roadmap for the rest of the Australis work - viewable from line 330 onwards here.
  • Started conversations with ZER0 from the Jetpack team about Australis impacts to the SDK
  • Lots of reviews



Last week:

    • bug 855683 (JP tests) and bug 869939 (migrate stuff from addon bar to navbar) - blocked on decisions regarding addon-bar removal, talked with jetpack folks and mconley, posted to fx-dev, waiting on finalizing discussion there + ux feedback
    • landed bug 853083 (tabs left margin on windows without the app button)
    • lots of stuff about bug 853415 (weird overflow bug), seems we're now going to able to fix it by never hiding the navbar
    • Started work on never hiding the navbar in bug 870545 and bug 752434.
    • behind the scenes stuff about bug 658467 (tab label fadeout rather than ellipsis), looking hard to make work in a performant manner
  • Other
    • landed bug 865316 (polish for OS X menubuttons)
    • still waiting for reviews on Fx reset tab restoring, and UX response from Limi on whether we care enough about tab groups

This week:

  • More Australis customization stuff (navbar, tab scrollbar fixes after that's done)
  • Want to tackle UX orange/red and get it just as green as the trees outside my window.



Last week:

This past week:

This week:
