Project Updates



  • [mconley] Telemetry experiment is underway!
    • e10s is enabled for a subset of the beta population (with and without add-ons)
    • I believe the primary goal of this first experiment is to get a sense of which add-ons hurt us e10s the most
  • A second experiment will be shipped that measures performance and stability for a subset of the beta population that has no add-ons whatsoever
    • I believe this will be used to help inform / bolster a go-nogo for 46 for users without add-ons.
  • [mconley] Please be vigilant about filing (or bumping) any potential e10s blocker bugs, because (modulo perf or stability regressions from the experiment) we seem to be approaching the end of the runway for v1. \o/
  • [felipe] e10s tests:
    • areas that need focus
      • browser-chrome
        • browser/base/content/test/general
        • social, customizableui, downloads
      • mochitest-plain
        • toolkit/components => contentprefs, passwdmgr, prompts, satchel, urlclassifier


  • No-one at meeting today
  • Working towards FF 45 release
    • getting latest versions of the add-on landed and uplifted,
    • preparing to test out updates Hello add-on via the Go Faster system


view-source is no longer linkable from web content. This isn’t really a “web feature” so shouldn’t be impacting sites.

  • Main focus in 47 is malware download prevention.
