- 10.7 related crashes
- Bug 670842 - is our top Lion specific crash and has been rising steadily since 10.7 was released.
- Increased feedback reports - "app is crashier for 6.0 than 5.0"
- We looked into this and found a measurable increase in Flash related hangs - Bug 618683
- No clear site correlations but many of the comments mention youtube.
- Some analysis pinpoint the regression to a period back in May but we are still trying to solidify this.
- When we moved to beta, this hang really spiked ie: 1400 a day with 1 million users (5.0 has about 400 a day with 60 million users).
- top crash we were tracking Bug 671960 was just fixed.
