  • bug 1351358 - Can't submit form to http(s) URL using POST method from a file:// page
    • I have this pretty much working like chrome, couple of edge cases to work out and tests to write.


  • bug 1334550 - Proxy moz-extension protocol requests to the parent process
    • Changed code to use new SimpleChannel
    • 1 Memory leak to deal with
  • bug 1332190 - [Mac] Remove file system read access from content sandbox when separate file process in use


  • bug 1294641 - Running nightly from your home directory now works!
  • bug 1357758 - Replacing blacklist with whitelisting for the mac sandbox policy - mostly trying to assess how many blockers there are
  • bug 1357846 - Fixing a test when run under sandbox level 3
  • Starting to explore how to establish how much work it'd be to enable win32k lockdown


  • Looking into networking/sockets stuff
  • Our friends in media have remoted getifaddrs bug 1345511 and fixed the thing I had to work around on B2G bug 969715
    • Blocking bind/listen/accept could land approximately now, judging by Try
    • The patch for 1345511 is… not simple; I'm glad I didn't try to do that myself.
  • xpcshell tests haven't been sandboxed for a while
    • And one of them (dom/base/test/unit_ipc/test_bug553888_wrap.js) is the infamous httpd.js test
    • The prefs are in firefox.js, so xpcshell doesn't load them, so the “sandbox level” prefs are 0, but these are otherwise normal content processes
    • I'll file a bug
  • DBus
    • Exits the process if you shutdown read on its socket, but only on some systems.
    • Used directly in a few places (PowerManager, a11y, WiFi Scanner)
      • Might all be parent-only or easily e10s-able; not sure yet
    • I'll file some bugs

    • uplifting to beta

    • file bug on removing this -> jimm
