Last week

This week

  • Moving to Michigan to begin working remotely (Tuesday)
  • Going to work on fixing the Social API toolbar buttons to work properly in Icons & Text mode as well as Text mode. Also hope to spend some time looking into switching these buttons to use the more proper xul:toolbarbutton and remove many of the hacks that have been put in place.
  • Meet with the MSU students working on the Reader Mode project and fix the HG issue that they have been running in to (changes not included in their patch).


  • Mac Mini is being shipped through the post, so I may be a little slow testing on Mac in the interim.
