This Week:

  • Places
  • Telemetry by default
    • Help Theo completing the project
  • Downloads panel
    • More triaging and reviewing


  • Will likely be away 10-11 Dec, thus skipping the next meeting


Bugs 566746 and 697377, convert form and search history to be asynchronous. Almost complete, but some tests make extensive use of setTimeout which now causes more intermittent test failures, so I need to change the tests, and possibly add some additional notifications that get sent to handle this.

Found and fixed bug 817731 which caused the message manager to send some messages twice.


Last week

  • Reviewed Yoric's patch for sessionstore on a background thread bug 532150
  • Looked into some users' profiles from reports of jankiness while using Social
  • Wrote a patch to bug 811247 - create only one instance of each social panel
  • Filed a couple of bugs: bug 815961, bug 817375, bug 817782, bug 817790, bug 815973
  • Started looking into what we need to do for per-window private browsing on social
  • One interview, PTO on Friday

This week

  • Finish patch and tests for bug 811247
  • Review next patch from Yoric
  • Get back to some bugs I intended to look last week but were depriotized for 811247



  • was at the Gaia work week in Madrid at Telefonica's office
  • fixed some big keyboard performance regressions
  • will continue to fix app-specific kb regressions




Last week:

  • Downloads Panel
    • Landed more Downloads Panel fixes: bug 815273, bug 815131, bug 815678, bug 811263, bug 815941, bug 817584
    • Bugged shorlander a lot about some final decisions - we've got movement on bug 814961 now, and a tentative plan for bug 812894.
    • Worked a little bit on helping Ehsan with private browsing integration for downloads panel
    • I think I've narrowed down weird panel issue that dolske was experiencing to a Retina + GPU panel bug (bug 816986). jfkthame has been helping me on this one.
  • Australis Tabs

This week:

  • Downloads Panel
    • Finish off bug 814961 now that I have a direction on it.
    • Solidify plans for bug 812894 and implement.
    • See if I can get movement on bug 816986 - or at least, enough debugging information to know *why* things are going wrong. A Retina Macbook for testing should be arriving in Toronto soon.
    • When Mano's patch lands for Downloads in the Panel view (bug 675902), I'll be diving in there to help polish.
  • Australis Tabs
    • Get bug 813808 out of WIP state - might need some feedback from MattN or dao about my approach there.

Blockers: I'm not being blocked at the moment.
