QA Services (Marcia)
- Crash/Feedback Analysis
- Awaiting feedback from the 3.6.4 release. https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases/Firefox_3.6.4/RRRT will track possible issues. If YOU see any pattern for a issue, let me (-> Tomcat) as RRRT TeamLead now.
- Continue efforts to have bugs on file for top 20 trunk crashes. Continuously monitoring new crashes as patches are checked in.
- Since the Tuesday nightly build, Firefox 4 with accessibility and NVDA or Orca as the screen readers loads pages like BlindCoolTech faster by 30% compared to Monday's nightly, even 3 times faster than Firefox 3.6.x (2 seconds instead of 3 and 6 respectively).
- Other perf and memory improvements landed last week that make Firefox 4 with accessibility use less memory and hopefully stopped a memory leak that could hit under certain not even rare conditions when closing tabs.
- Also have landed 1 accessibility crash fix for 3.6.6 bug 529192, primarily important for Thunderbird 3.1.1 since they already took this patch on their relbranch. Also have another patch in the pipeline that just landed on m-c which we want to get into 1.9.2 which will fix a long-standing issue with Thunderbird when tabbing from the message body to the subject field and vice versa (bug 503428).
- Mozilla Summit
- https://wiki.mozilla.org/Summit2010/Schedule is up. Newsletter indicating we will know more about which proposals were submitted on June 28
