A little more on e10s form/autocomplete.

Started looking into background thumbnail service stuff. Learnt lots, solved nothing :)

Put together a relatively complex patch so console and standard handles work as expected in child processes.








  • bug 874051 - Fixing a11y test failures on UX
  • bug 874601 - Social API test failures (test finnickiness also fixed on m-c!)
  • bug 874448 - OS X dropmarkers
  • bug 875163 - new icons hugeness on OS X hidpi
  • bug 873518 - removing throbber (activity indicator) and individual cut/copy/paste buttons, plus a sneaky off-by-one error in customize mode


  • bug 823237 - new tab button paths fixing tab close overflow cases
  • bug 857886 - tab image updates for OS X hidpi


  • bug 874819 seems to have gone away after a merge; this means we now have green UX trees apart from the jetpack tests. Thanks to mconley and everyone else who helped fix this. If anyone breaks tests and introduces more orange, I will personally come and find you. :-)

(the jetpack tests depend on some SDK work as well as decisions regarding the addon bar, probably followed by more SDK work. I may help out with that if I have cycles within M6 still)


  • bug 872455 - Fixed some Social button weirdness, backported to Aurora
  • bug 865806 - Backed out, relanded with my crashfix to avert Aurora nightly crashiness


  • bug 870849 - (windows-only gap between titlebar and tabstrip; need to address Dao's review comments)
  • bug 873501 - make the customization code spacer/spring-proof
  • bug 870014 - address the issues mconley identified

I also need to organize one of my mentored bugs now that Matt has cleared one up so they can work on that one.







  • various intermittent test failure work
  • investigation on improvements for webrtc apps/talkilla

UX Updates


  • UX discussion on next steps for Boriss' New Tab page design
    • New Tab tracking page:
    • our intern, Jack is going to be building an addon prototype of the basic framework for us to play with internally (and for whoever wants to try it)
    • at the same time, we're also in the process of coming up with concepts to show to users
