Project Updates

Go Faster

  • Support for loading system add-ons shipped with the application should land this week
  • Updating system add-ons mid-cycle to follow


  • Working on a visual refresh of the entire UI – desktop & standalone.
  • Next up: if you click your own link, we’ll open it up in a conversation window as if you’d clicked it from the Hello menu.


  • Deploying a heartbeat survey within the next week on 41+ to measure data on private browsing if the user opts-in to via the info bar. The survey will get a baseline in 41 and compare that with 42+ which has tracking protection.
  • A diary study will also soon be taking place to get a different type of feedback on tracking protection
  • Intern presentation: “Firefox Helps You Log In” Presented by Bernardo Rittmeyer
    • This is the last week of Bernardo’s internship.
  • Working on final fixes to let search suggestions ride the trains, accessibility is being a particular issue

Windows 10

  • Continuing work on data migrators from Edge. Check QA/Firefox_migrators if you’re ever interested in knowing what we can migrate and to find related bugs.
