Major Topics for This Week

Fx15 Uplifts

We uplifted several patches for Tablet UI support. Several features were also uplifted to Fx15 before it merged to beta. We will need to track the Tablet UI and these features for additional issues and uplift fixes as needed. Use status-firefox15:affected so we can track bugs that need to be fixed and uplifted to Fx15. Features include:
  • Find in Page
  • Text Selection
  • Clear Private Data
  • Request Desktop Site
  • Search Suggestions (defaulted off)
  • History and Bookmark Import
Fx16 Uplifts

Fx16 is now in Aurora and carried a few features with it that still need followup work. Make sure we track and request approval as needed. Use status-firefox16:affected so we can track bugs that need to be fixed and uplifted to Fx16:
  • Reading Mode and List
  • WebApp RT
  • Helper Apps
