High Priority Work

Landing APIs in Firefox

Alex and Irakli worked together on this last week. Have implemented all modificationss that need to be uplifted to Aurora. cfx changes are still needed. We should document how to run SDK tests for platform people - let's raise a bug for this.

Private Browsing

Erik: added isPrivate method. He's currently working on updating panel. What's the minimum we need to uplift into Aurora in order to ship in Firefox 21? panel, selection, page-mod. Erik will think today to see if there's any more. Alex and Matteo can help.

Cross-domain content scripts

Gabor filed 12 patches, has lots of nits to fix. Might be a leak still. Could finish this week otherwise.

Panel positioning

Matteo is waiting for comments on the API.


  • Firefox version bump in 1.14 today. Anything else? Matteo: include selection fix if it isn't already.
  • Wes'd really like to wrap up 1.14 in a timely fashion, what's the status of all of the private browsing changes? Anything else?
  • Blockers? Grievances?


bug 842486 seems important. Can we get it fixed and cherry-picked to 1.14 in a timely fashion? It's just waiting for review.


Gregg wants to prototype using Jetpack, but actually land as XUL overlays. Should there be a 'load this xul from file' bit? Jeff: this sounds like a very specific use case, and we don't necessarily want to add more XUL support. Is it OK to generate XUL programmatically, which seems to be the more common approach? This is also what devtools does, so maybe that's ok for test pilot as well.

Debug Protocol content scripts

The debugging protocol wants to be able to pass scripts to the browser, for the browser to execute. Would like to use content scripts to do this, to reduce the security exposure. Is this a sensible idea, at all? Alex: Atul implemented something that might be relevant here. There is a common case here where we want to run a script in a sandbox. Also Social API is a possible customer.


The next few weeks:

  • Eddy on setting multiple breakpoints per line
  • Erik on content policy
  • Jeff during the work week
  • Will on something or other
  • Matteo on something or other
