As you likely know we have a new feature launching in Firefox  38.1 for the Spring Campaign called Reading List. It allows you to save  and sync articles you'd like come back to, either on your desktop or  android device (and soon iOS), making it easy to keep all your news in  one place and digest at your leisure. It also includes Reader View,  which strips away all the chrome and cruft from websites so you can  focus in on the story.

Reading List is in beta now, and we're expanding our testing to include some One and Done tasks. If you have 5 minutes and want to help out, please pick up a task at:

Channel Status

Release (Fx 37)(Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Aaron/Ioana)

Beta (Fx38) (Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Ioana/Kevin)

  • [Ioana] [read only] Mobile 37 Beta 2 out without new issues:
  • [Ioana] [read only] Beta 4 will bring several uplifts: Request Desktop Site, Reading List
  • Crash rate at 2.0, needs significant improvement
  • Plugin crashes are/were up to pre-MSE level as YouTube switched us back to Flash by default. 38 and higher should be back to HTML5/MSE today
  • Pool of people prone to gfx startup crashes has been depleted heavily on beta due to past issues, we need to be more attentive to those issues when they come up on beta.

Aurora (Fx 39) (Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Ioana/Kevin)

  • [Ioana] [read only] Aurora
  • Crash rate at 7.4, which is *really* high, a lot of plugin-related issues due to async plugin init work that aklotz did in that cycle but which is disabled when e10s is enabled, so not much testing of it on nightly

Nightly (Fx 40) (Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Ioana/Kevin)

ESR (Fx 31.6.0)


Automation (whimboo)

  • General

  • Mozmill
