This Page No Longer In Use

Rather than focusing on 1.9.x planning, there's a new General Platform Planning page.

Historical Info

Below are four google docs which were generated during a week of informal discussions to give people a chance to express what they would like to work on for the next 3-6 months. We did this to communicate to each other what we would like to do for 1.9.1/Fx3.1. Since there's no way to allow the entire world to edit these google docs, I'm slowly transferring information into this wiki page. However, people should take a look at the published versions just to get an idea of what people are working on. Contributors who want to add to this list should edit the wikitext of this page to add their items.

Note: This page is not a wish list or a mechanism to request a feature in Gecko. It's a place to indicate which items you are actively working on for a particular release. To request a feature, use bugzilla as usual.

Feature/Tasks Lists by Functional Group:

If you are actively working on an issue that you feel should be on this list as it's a feature to land in 1.9.1, please add your name below. Also, if for some reason you need to edit the spreadsheets above as there's an item listed for you and it's incorrect, I can add you as a collaborator. Just send me email: dsicore at
