Friends of the Firefox team

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

  • Friend of the Desktop Team badge created!
    • First award went to Luís Miguel (:Quicksaver), who was nominated last week!
    • Does anybody know who pamela.karam1 is? She nominated herself for a badge, but I can’t find an entry on Mozillians, nor activity on Bugzilla… unless anybody can vouch for her, I’m going to reject this one.
    • mconley will send out badge nominations for any folks in this list each week. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like I can share admin rights on this badge with anyone else.
    • I have the ability to update the badge name, image, etc. Please send mconley your feedback.
  • mconley nominates Peiyong Lin (:lpy) for converting the CustomizableUI tests from using our homebrew test runner to using the built-in add_task function (bug 946754).

Project Updates


  • UITelemetry
    • [mconley] The must-have probes have landed on mozilla-beta, mozilla-aurora and Holly.
    • [mconley] Have begun porting probes over to mozilla-central
    • [mconley] I’m double-checking with :afowler that the fact that we’re jamming all of this UITelemetry into a single object that won’t be split apart is not a privacy concern. Waiting to hear back.
  • Other
    • [mconley] I’ve been writing some blog posts about the Australis performance work that we did. Here’s part 1, 2 and 3.
