Firefox Development

(from our goals):

  • [ON TRACK] Feature complete Firefox 4
    • [DONE] Switch to Tab

    • [DONE] Extension Manager - Bug list is converging, still a lot of work to do.
    • [DONE] Web Console
    • [ON TRACK] Notification UI - Geo and EM notifications done, http auth next.
    • [ON TRACK] New Theme - Windows and Mac good, Linux catching up now
    • [DONE] TabCandy Panorama
    • [AT RISK] Silent updates on Windows
    • [DROPPED] Inspector
    • [DROPPED] Account Manager - WIP patches posted, but we can't contain the review load and code risk.
  • [AT RISK] Dirty profile startup within 20% of clean profile startup (modulo extensions, plugins; on windows)
    • Current status: Lots of data has been collected and analyzed, but no solid conclusions have shaken out.
    • Details page

(there is a team-by-team goals breakdown, as well)

  • [DONE] Javascript performance near or even with Chrome 5 on their benchmarks (within 20% on SS, 30% on V8), with substantial wins on our benchmarks. (Windows, in-browser.)
  • [DONE] Hardware acceleration of video and other HTML and SVG content, as well as user interface, on by default for compatible hardware on all Tier-1 desktop and mobile platforms.
  • [DONE] Fully support the WebGL 1.0 spec, with support turned on by default in a Firefox 4 beta on platforms that support OpenGL or OpenGL ES.
  • [MISSED] security: zero reproducible high/crit > 30 days
  • [DONE] Support multi-process Fennec.
  • [DONE] Support Jetpacks running in separate processes and never blocking the Fennec UI. NOTE: jetpack team hasn't actually integrated this code yet, but it works in small test environments.


  • OpenGL accelerated layers on Mac *very close* - one bug remaining. Should land today.
  • OpenGL accelerated layers on Linux much futher out. Will definitely miss beta 7.


  • All goals completed already --- Fixing regressions/blockers
  • SVG images landed
  • Removed -moz prefix from box-shadow and border-radius properties
  • Async plugin painting making progress, should land soon for Linux, needs Windows/Mac love


  • cjones update on remote layers and puppet-widgets: close to landing


  • Landed 'buffered' support for WebM (Q3 goal)
