  • Update on landing responsiveness measurement code?


  • Update on accelerated layers for Mobile - still needed in the new model?

  • (jkew, bug 631479) - Graphite fonts implemented (needs code review)
  • (dholbert, bug 666041) - Flexbox patches WIP (been updating per recent-ish changes to spec); requesting review on first-pass patches within a week or two.

Stability Report

New Reports



Desktop 7.0.1

  • bug 694966 - New Roboform regression
  • bug 694968 - crash in libvoikko-1.dll. Seems to affect Finnish users but spiked very hard
  • bug 694974 - crash in mscorwks.dll with 100% correlation to IdVault.dll (White Sky IdVault / Comcast Constant Guard) - this is different than the other crash that we had
  • bug 694624 - AVG Safe Search
  • bug 694683 - fsecure browser protection addon - not a crash, but really bad user experience since the user keeps hanging. marcia in touch with support in their company and getting a copy of the 2012 version to test again to see if the same thing is happening
  • bug 695151 - Silverlight issue
  • bug 680927 - Startup crash in mozcomp.dll with Oracle Enterprise, F5 Networks, Passlogix V-GO, IBM Tivoli Access Manager SSO - Should we try to do anything more with this bug?


  • top issue on trunk: crash [@ gfxSharedImageSurface::Open]
  • bug 694987 - [birch] change the buildid to be different from the nightly to distinguish it from the nightly crashes in Socorro
    • Birch branch crash is listed in the nightly top 10 crash ( mozalloc_abort moz_xmalloc )
  • bug 691842 - Fennec 8.0b1 is showing no reports.
  • bug 689778 - Some content crashes are not getting reported at all
  • bug 689781 - Some content crashes will show in about:crashes but does not get sent to soccoro
  • bug 692185 - Java crashes are not showing up in App Notes for Fennec Java Crashes
  • Top Bugs in 7:
    • bug 661158 Crash on mobile SMP devices while sending PRNetAddr over IPDL [@ Pickle::ReadBytes]
    • bug 663494 - crashing occurs when trying to restart after energysaving power down; crash [@ base::CloseSuperfluousFds]



  • Update on user responsiveness for talos:
    • Ted landed his fix for the mac 10.5 issue
    • Rolling into tools staging now
    • Best case estimate (if the changes do not wobble tp5 numbers) we could start deployment in 2 weeks


  • Update on accelerated layers for Mobile - still needed in the new model?
    • Yes


  • DOM Bindings Update?
    • Nodelist bindings landed, landing was a bit bumpy, but it did stick
    • Working through some of the fallout, mostly relating to running with the new bindings *disabled*
    • Next step is to start working on bindings for the remaining DOM classes, of which there are many. peterv is starting to do that once he clears out some items in his backlog from getting the nodelist bindings done. Others will help as well.


  • Status update on NPN, which is required for the SPDY landing?


  • App Cache stuff from Blizzard
    • Lots of good feedback out there based on real-world experience.
    • There are quite a few things we need to do in Firefox in the short term to fix bugs.
    • There are also quite a few things that we can do in Firefox to improve the longer-term experience.
    • Need to focus on two different use cases - caching and installable apps. They need to be handled differently with different experiences.
    • Upcoming conference on The future of offline applications where we are going to discuss it with implementers, browser vendors and standards folks.
