This page will track declaring the latest mozilla-beta build as the final in this cycle and starting the build off of the mozilla-release repository.

Please note that issues found in the final moments of the beta period may still require us to rebuild before release

Focus Areas

Tracking Details

Startup Crashes:

  • bug 715401 – Firefox Crash @ nsCanvasRenderingContext2DAzure::ClearRect with Yahoo Toolbar
    • This is our highest priority issue ahead of release
    • Bas has an idea for how to forward fix this, but we'd really only consider it if we had a repro case. We're still trying to find a backout to perform before Friday.
    • Can we push anything through an add-on hotfix prior to release targeting Yahoo Toolbar users?
  • bug 711656 – Firefox 11.0a1 Crash in TextStageManager::AddStagesForSubrect with Intel GMA X4500HD, 4500MHD, and HD Graphics up to 8.15.10.2141
    • Latest patch landed on mozilla-central doesn't appear to have fixed the issue, so this will likely go unfixed on FF11
  • bug 716391 – Firefox Startup crash @ je_free | xul.dll@0xbb...f | nsAppShell::`. deleting destructor(unsigned int) with various proxies
    • Not a FF11 regression, but it's a shame we didn't find the root cause


Blocklist Opportunities:

  • bug 715744 – DLL block request: BExternal.dll
    • BExternal.dll is strongly represented in bug 715757 and bug 721645
    • Pinged Ehsan to land on m-c and m-a today
    • Jorge let us know that this DLL is from older versions of Babylon, we're trying to find out which ones currently
  • bug 722538 – block AMD Radeon HD 6290/6300/6310/6320 for DIRECT2D
    • Can still be performed post-release
    • Difficult to push because we can't test with just our beta users, and we don't have a repro case


Other:

  • bug 730285 – No update channel is found after restoring the OS to a previous point.
    • This is of note because next week is Patch Tuesday
