Brownbag Presenter Time Description
Mozilla Crash Analysis and Investigation Marcia Knous 12:00pm PST - 10 Forward Stability is an important part of the Mozilla mission. Mozilla uses the Socorro tool to catch, process, and present crash data for Desktop and Mobile Firefox, Thunderbird, Camino, and Seamonkey. The CrashKill team then takes that data, analyzes it, detects trends, and drives the crash bugs to resolution. This presentation will give a general overview of the crash analysis and investigation process as well as some fascinating insight into how the team uses the Socorro tool to help keep the browser stable.
