High Priority Work

Cross-domain content scripts

Done? There doesn't seem to be a clear consensus that the patch Alex landed constitutes this being "done" or not.

UX Work

  • Toolbars: no progress.
  • Sidebar: nearly done.
  • Action button, toggle button: nearly done.
  • Problems with developing on Australis, as it's a moving target.
  • Customizable UI doesn't work well with private-browsing: buttons will be added to windows even if they are private. This is a problem in Firefox, but should we work around it until Firefox has properly worked out the private-browsing story? Yes, but Jeff will also try to get the issue addressed by the relevant product manager(s).

Places API -> Proposed History Querying API

Unit tests being written. Will land in Firefox 24.

DOM Window for add-ons

Websockets patch is under review.

The great last repack

Blocked on IT. Need to escalate.


Nothing this week.





  • We really need to figure out what's going on with the intermittent test failures, or our test results will be hidden soon. See bug 882867. A test fails: we disable the failing test and then a different test fails. Probably some test isn't cleaning the environment. Could restart Firefox each time to be sure of having a clean environment, but would this make our tests unacceptably long? We need to look deeper into these problems.
  • Can we use arrow functions in the SDK? Yes, since we're only testing against Nightly at the moment.
