Current Releases

Beta (127)

  • Awesome job getting Beta 1 out the door with as much of the DB locking patches in as possible:
  • DB locking related patches (retry, log, and squash): bug 843029, bug 843361, bug 732902, bug 836924
  • We could use as many hands with Jelly Bean Devices in them to try to repro upon updating from Fx19 Beta: bug 791958 - android.database.sqlite.SQLiteDatabaseLockedException: database is locked (code 5): , while compiling: PRAGMA journal_mode at android.database.sqlite.SQLiteConnection.nativePrepareStatement(Native Method) on JB
  • We are getting quite a bit of feedback regarding the removal of the the 'Quit' menu item, a rel note is being posted, the QuitNow add-on is quite useful for those who are attached to having it within the app:
  • Patches to further empower our distribution story have been uplifted to beta

Aurora (54)

  • Getting as much feedback about our new fonts for this version is key so we're keeping our eyes peeled and ears to the ground bug 831354 - Ship fonts for content in Firefox for Android

  • Adios, tab tray menu, the "new tab" icon to the far right is all we need bug 843619
  • Nice responsiveness improvement hit central yesterday with the landing of bug 843888 - LayerView has 1 overdraw
  • We are very stoked \o/ on the landing of bug 716859 and the patch for bug 829747. The build we are showing at MWC contains both these patches...
  • Lot's of good work on the video side of WebRTC and the branch may be merged to m-c next week?
