Q3 Goals

  • [francesca] trying and editing all one and done tasks

Channel Status

Release (Fx31) (Desktop - Anthony/Liz Mobile - Aaron/Kevin)

Beta (Fx 32) (Desktop - Juan/Kamil Mobile - Aaron/Kevin )

  • 32.0b5 is/was very unstable for people with certain adware installed, a backout hopefully improves that for b6 (see stability)

Aurora (Fx 33) (Desktop - Tracy/Kevin Mobile - Aaron/Kevin)

Nightly (Fx 34)(Desktop - Liz Mobile - Aaron/Kevin)

  • larch (project branch) will be used for tablet UI refresh work (Fx35)
  • the patch that caused the crash mentioned above (NSAttribute) is not yet backed out for Nightly but IIDs will be updated instead

ESR (Fx 24.7 + Fx 31)


  • Assessment of Shumway, working on test plan outline

Automation (whimboo)

  • General
  • Mozmill
    • We stopped running endurance and addon tests for Firefox versions other than Nightly
    • 20 new locales have been added for testing against Firefox Beta and Release - next 10 locales are about to get enabled
  • Puppet
    • All proxy related features and bug fixes are checked in now
    • Remaining blocker for moving our mozmill machines to puppetagain controlled hosts is the screen resolution
  • TPS
    • All tests are green for half a month now on Linux - working on getting add-on installation failure sorted out on OS X (bug 1052312)
    • was down due to a domain transfer lately so causing lots of failures (bug 1050313)
    • Draft for moving TPS framework code out of mozilla-central to its own repository on github (bug 1037084)
    • We will shutdown the old Coversheet CI system soon


  • The supposed crash fix in bug 1038243 made things even worse for people with that adware. This is being backed out across channels, and Nightly will have a "proper" fix by revving IIDs, done in bug 1051858.
  • Aurora still has OMTC IPC crash bug 1021053 as #1, devs seem to be looking into it.
  • Thanks to Alexandra Lucinet for great testing of openh264 crash reporting! [lizzard]
