  • Switched to eslint 2 so you may need to run: mach eslint –setup

    • Uses a list of “allowed” prefs to avoid content process sandbox escapes, to which you’ll likely need to add your pref.

Project Updates


  • says “Yes, I think we are”. So that’s good.


  • Thank you so so so so so so much for working on tests. The whole e10s team is indebted to you all.
  • Making good progress on performance issues. tpaint regression is mostly under threshold now. Still room and ideas for improvement there. tps is where effort is being shifted to now.
  • A team of folks under jimm and kanru are working on improving stability. We’re waiting on beta experiment data to determine if it’s having the desired effect.

Go Faster


  • e10s: Now enabled on nightly & aurora. One main issue left that Hello team is fixing (bug 1257243), one Firefox issue (bug 1257790)
  • e10s: Would like some help with bug 1262560 Investigate turning on em:multiprocessCompatible for Hello
    • When we turn this on, various mochitest test runs start leaking. Removing all of the add-on core code doesn’t resolve the issue.
  • We’re thinking about error catching/reporting in tests and at runtime
  • Another substantial round of product changes in progress


  • desktop Firefox no longer uses an about:certerror page. about:neterror will now be displayed in those cases where about:certerror would have been used in the past (the style differences have been carried over)
