  • Both beta and release have higher crash rates that liked/expected.
    • On both, bug 1018236 (McAfee) is probably a main cause.
    • On Beta, bug 883134 (Brazil banks) is another large contributor.
      • This seems to have been introduced by poison-on-free patches in Fx30.
  • Nightly has a number of high-ranking crashes, probably a number related to OMTC.
  • OOM is probably the main issue across channels, a patch on nightly is near that could help there somewhat, but we need more analysis long-term - bsmedberg and his people are working on that.


  • Baloo data import for Bugzilla (Desktop triage) is in progress. We should have that report soon
    • github imports won't happen for q2. Moztrap imports might.
    • Firefox OS, Services, and Automation are almost ready for handoff to the Baloo team.
