Browser / Front End

(Progress reports every weekend on Planet Firefox)

GFX Update

  • Decode-on-draw landed over the weekend, but we have modified it so it’s turned off because of perf regressions.
    • Various other small regressions as well
    • Search for bugs with [decodeondraw] in the whiteboard to follow the progress.
  • WebGL update:

Content Update

Platform-specific Support Update

  • [jimm] Initial Win7 SDK build/test runs complete. (bug 505504) Working with build on getting upgrade scheduled.


Startup Performance



  • Known tasks have been organized into a bug hierarchy
  • Windowless plugins are a big schedule risk: karlt may not be able to start on them for another week or more. Are there other people who can help, especially with event forwarding?
  • the JPW is going to be important for writing tests, since we don’t have an async script execution mechanism yet. mrbkap do you have an ETA on that?
  • We’re going to try to get mobile stuff going without graphics, specifically the event-forwarding pieces, see bug 516727

Tree Management

  • new Talos suite Dirty profile MAX landed last week
  • Windows CE builds on Try server
