Stability Report [Weekly]

  • Thanks to roc for his investigation and wallpaper in bug 839270 – unfortunately the real causes still eludes us. roc might need the support of a developer with access to a crashing machine, esp. if he can’t do good remote debugging.

Critsmash [3rd Tuesday of Month]

  • Engineers are incessantly smashing critical bugs. Our mid quarter checkup looks good but we have to keep momentum.
  • Please consider a fresh triage of all your team’s security bugs (Front-end and DOM teams have done this).

    • A big thank you to collaboration from release team including: John, Chris, Ben, Sec team including: Christian, Dan, Al, engineering team including: steve fink, A-Team’ s Ed Morely, and so on.


  • WebRTC (PeerConnections) are now enabled by default on Desktop(!) (In today’s nightly)
    • We’re likely to (re)enable a bunch of assertions, especially thread-safety ones, in opt builds for at least the next few months.
    • If some funky hardware doesn’t work with it, report it!
    • Lots of interest from major players. Time for web developers to start trying it
    • Lots of work/improvements still to do (including beyond initial release to production)
