Firefox Development

  • Matthew Noorenberghe landed the first revision of a Firefox profile migrator. This is a first step towards implementing a "profile cleaning" feature (bug 273874)

Firefox Developer Tools

  • New Command Line was turned on in the web console.
  • We've gathered feedback and will be turning it back off for now.
  • paul, robcee and shorlander did some UI planning last week. Slides



  • Quartz backend for the new 2D API (Azure) landed, on by default, for canvas.
    • Tracked in bug 692879.
    • OS X only, canvas only (for now).
    • Please test canvas demos, etc!
      • When testing, you can disable this implementation by toggling the pref to ensure it's actually a regression.






  • WebSMS nearly ready, might even land today (Fennec and linux).


  • We need a test server for SPDY, we've decided to go with node-spdy. We're planning to require a local installation of node 0.7 or higher in order to test SPDY. We'll be requesting that node be deployed to our testing infrastructure for this.
  • Once SPDY testing is possible we'll be requesting that SPDY be turned on by default on mozilla-central, at least for a week. This should happen soon after the start of Firefox 13 development.




  • Work progressing on mobile and OSX a11y.
    • Team will follow up with a post to dev-platform or dev-planning regarding when and how to ship FF on OSX with a11y built in.

Tree Management

  • 10.5 leak builds happening for try on 10.6 machines
  • can we disable Mobile Desktop builds for m-c, project branches and aurora?

Stability Report


  • Release on Friday - switch all timezones to UTC. Some dip in stats Friday but all looks normal now.



  • bug 716289 Was the top crash but now should be fixed.
  • bug 717171 Crash @ js::ContextStack::currentScript. Currently #3 overall crash on trunk
  • bug 718284 Cycle collector crash when using the default Wikipedia(en) search plugin with HTTPS-Everywhere


  • bug 718575Startup crash in pref_savePref @ mozalloc_abort(char const* const) | mozalloc_handle_oom() | ToNewCString(nsACString_internal const&)

Beta 4

  • bug 718389 Startup crash @ PR_EnumerateAddrInfo | nsDNSRecord::GetNextAddr.
  • bug 718724 Firefox Crash [@ nsHTMLReflowState::Init(nsPresContext*, int, int, nsMargin const*, nsMargin const*) ]



  • (bsmedberg) - bug 712032 is a rather new orange which appears to be related to cache incorrectness; it doesn't have an owner but I don't think we should ship a release with it.
