General Topics / Roundtable

(tips/tricks, productivity improvements, industry news)

  • New BrowserTestUtils directory for shared testing utilities
    • BrowserTestUtils has a bunch of useful utilities for testing and avoids having duplication between head.js files.
    • ContentTask.spawn is useful for running code in the content process in an e10s-safe way.
  • How to get a profile from a hung process (Mac and Linux)
  • Easily add live pref-controlled logging to your module which outputs to stdout and the Browser Console (with inspectable objects):
XPCOMUtils.defineLazyGetter(this, "log", () => {
  let ConsoleAPI = Cu.import("resource://gre/modules/devtools/Console.jsm", {}).ConsoleAPI;
  let consoleOptions = {
    maxLogLevelPref: PREF_LOG_LEVEL,
    prefix: "My Log Prefix",
  return new ConsoleAPI(consoleOptions);

  • Frequency of this meeting
    • May change to once every 2 weeks. No decision made yet.
  • What is the status of feature reviews?
    • Need to ask bsmedberg. mfinkle gave examples of more things being considered for the list.
  • What is the status of product line reviews?
    • One happened yesterday. An update should occur shortly.
  • Have we centrally documented our new sub-team structure?
    • Helps to find whom to ask if you have a question about something
    • Existing module system doesn't have answers for User Experience and Product
    • Mossop will document out what the sub-teams are and possibly list members.
