General Topics

Friends of the Firefox team

Give a shoutout/thanks to people for helping fix and test bugs.

  • Luís Miguel [:Quicksaver] for filing detailed, constructive and helpful bugreports about Australis’ CustomizableUI API even though docs are still lacking. It’s been very helpful in polishing the rough edges that we’ve not run into within Firefox’s own use of the API.

  • [mconley] Filed bug 948019 for a contributor badge – mart3ll has generated a WIP set that he’s shared with me privately, which hopefully we can start putting up soon.

Project Updates

Australis

  • Australis bug filing has ticked up a little in the past week

    • No new major worries, but some new edge cases are coming in that weren’t known about before
  • Holly merged to Mozilla-Aurora, in one of the cleanest and simplest merges that I’ve (jaws) ever dealt with
    • We will keep Holly going through the Fx29 Nightly cycle and as far forward as necessary until Australis merges to Aurora

    • Potentially we could introduce a Holly^2 for the Aurora branch in case we decide not to push it to Beta, but this starts to get more complicated pretty fast
  • Bugs fixed within the past week: http://mzl.la/1cmOKRe

    • Great progress has been made on the UI Tour bugs

    • Now have full context-menu support for moving items around the UI without entering customization mode
      • Exceptions being if you right-click on the back/forward button or text inputs of the location bar or search bar
    • UITelemetry bugs being slowed down by pre-existing Telemetry bugs that need fixing (bug 863872, bug 947294)

Thumbnailing

Foreground thumbnailing

  • patch awaiting Tim’s feedback: bug 809056 – reduce thumbnailing impact when there are no thumbnail service consumers

Background thumbnailing

  • landed: bug 914920 – about:newtab displays thumbnail from unrelated websites for some links

SessionStore

  • bug 940954 – Let Marionette support shutdown/restart tests

  • bug 887780 – Don’t save state right after startup when restoring the initial session
  • bug 934935 – Facebook.com spams sessionstore.js

  • bug 936271 – Don’t save history for dynamically generated iframes
  • bug 947212 – Broadcast form data and move it out of tabData.entries[]
  • bug 921942 – Scroll position isn’t restored in background tabs after session restore
  • bug 912717 – SessionCookies blocks while recursively extracting host data information from history entries
  • bug 945809 – Measure Longest Data Collection Operations in Content Script

  • bug 942340 – Additional Telemetry on sessionstore.js
  • bug 941882 – Programmatically get the memory usage of a worker
