  • bug 1319423 - Don't create files on disk from content from print IPC
    • Landed
    • Just this morning someone filed a regression in printing to PDF... so that's going to require some debugging
  • Write up a plan for the macOS GPU lockdown work
  • bug 1409747 - Fixed compilation on macOS with --disable-sandbox
  • bug 1407693 - Don't create files from content process on process crash
    • Had a working patch, except the approach is non-workable for windows, so back to the drawing board


  • bug 1400637 - Crash in mozilla::layers::ImageBridgeChild::InitForContent
    • Attempt to reduce occurences by ... bug 1410073 - Load user32.dll immediately after the DLL Blocklist is in place.
  • bug 1401095 - Can not open any web page if Firefox is launched from a new desktop
    • This appears to be broken from Fx50 (level 1), the alternate desktop actually fixes it, I want to work out why.
  • bug 1372823 - Extend BaseThreadInitThunk gatekeeping to support Windows 64-bit
    • Finally tracked down all gtest threading/timing issues and landed, hopefully fixes bug 1397301.
  • bug 1407766 - Nightly 58 displays blank pages in the browser after Symantec Endpoint is installed
    • This was because we were blocking a DLL that they inject as a static import and so we crash.

    • bug 1409895 — getcwd; probably just tests
    • bug 1409900 — statfs and quotactl; unsure because this goes back to the original strace-scraping
  • Got audio remoting + bug 1385258 + future sandboxing semi-working on Try
    • Just did namespace/chroot, not corresponding seccomp-bpf tightening (yet)
    • chroot breaks a few tests because the cwd is different
