Last Week:

  • Fixed render cruft in presentation composite pass.
  • Created patch for tab mirror encoder so that tabs streamed from mobile device are full size (see bug 1144975).
  • Landed bug fix to gamepad on MacOS that would cause a crash if certain buttons were pressed, patch also enabled dpad on MacOS attached controllers (see bug 1107801).
  • Un-bitrotted standalone webrtc code. Still broken on Roku due to compiler issues.

Next Week:

  • Scale presentation composite so that entire page is mirrored and wrap up project.
  • Get latest code running on Roku again.
  • Investigate encoding shared tab from composite in place of redrawing page.

Head down mopping up the blood for Reading List on Android: bug 1147164.

Martyn Haigh




Some highlights:

  • Reader View content is now served via built-in web server
  • (Internal) Reader View URLs are hidden
  • Share To Extension works again (for both Bookmarks and Reading List) !
  • Reader View content is cached for offline usage (but no images yet)
  • Pushed out a new Aurora Build


  • Integrating better Reading List storage (so that mark as read / delete will start working)
  • Share Extension UX update
  • Random boog fixes (trying to fix at least one or two small bugs in the morning to shrink the queue)

Struggling with Optionals, Properites, Protocols and Closures in pursuit of the least disgusting way I could think off do saving of open tabs. (restoring is later).
