Development Work Remaining

Fix regressions

  • bug 364315 - Landed on October 1st. Since the landing, Talos boxes have been randomly turning orange due to crashes. As far as anyone can tell, no users have been hitting these crashes, which means no stacks, which is making the regression extremely hard to track down.
  • bug 458047 (declared non-regression Oct 2nd)
  • bug 458068 - SVG fill="none" behaves as black (breaks gmaps) (fixed Oct 6th)
  • bug 458065 - Windows Txul/Tdhtml regression, afternoon of 2008-09-29 (deferred until post-beta)
  • bug 454324 - Crash when selection-less items are dragged [@ nsINode::GetCurrentDoc()] (fixed Oct 6th)
  • bug 458135 - crash when no geolocation services are available
