Firefox Developer Tools





  • font size inflation (bug 627842, readability) fighting with Android crashtest-1 failure (failing with no useful information in the log). Can land once that's fixed. Once it lands it'll probably need tuning related to feedback on how it behaves on different individual Web pages.



  • Lots of good cycle collector related work going on to better understand how to deal with huge graphs that end up causing long cc pauses (mccr8, smaug)
  • View-source changes landed, we're now no longer using the old parser for view source (hsivonen, smaug)
  • Landed HTML support for XHR (hsivonen)


  • Camera
    • Have most UI drafts.
    • Getting help with windows build stuff to get webrtc code integrated.
  • IndexedDB
    • Landed huge perf improvements!
    • Arrays-as-keys the big remaining feature
    • Found and fixed dataloss bug.
  • Part of SMS getting close to landing




  • Preparing to move birch (native UI) to mozilla-central
  • Switching nightlies from mozilla-central (XUL) to birch (native)
    • All nightly users will be moved


Tree Management

  • Rev3 OSX snow leopard machines are now offline.
    • Final Notice! These will be recycled into linux/windows testers unless there's a very good reason to keep them around for the next little while. Speak now, or forever hold your peace!
