  • Mozmill (Henrik)
    • Slow shutdowns
      • jsbridge disconnect issues dropped a lot since we increased the delay for the addon installation dialog. This might be related to other known bugs for slow shutdowns as we are aware of for fx29 and later. We will work with devs to get this investigated
      • We would like to get shutdown times measured with Mozmill - see bug 1008848
    • Patch for more descriptive disconnect issues will land soon
    • We have to refactor MozMillElement and throw away the smart broken detection of element types - see bug 1007596
  • WebRTC (Nils)
    • Trying to properly close down all connections at the end of each WebRTC test is quite a bit more complex then anticiapted - bug 965656
    • WebRTC Tiger team is working on adding TURN servers and call metrics to the tests
