Startup Performance



Plugin work continuing. Fairly quick turnaround on issues discovered since last week: except for bug 521377 the major issues have landed in e10s repo and should land in m-c today.

Major issues to resolve before turning OOPP on by default:

  • crash reporting in the plugin process, bug 516759
  • NPRuntime races, bug 521377
  • Windows hangs, bug 535036
  • Also need to deal with updater issues (mozilla-runtime not executable on Linux when delivered via partial update), bug 535090

Filed bug 536188 to create a project branch for Firefox “Lorentz” based off of 1.9.2. The intention is to do betas starting in mid-January and doing weekly betas until release in March or April.

In mobile-land, work starting to port e10s to the Qt event dispatch/widget system.

    • current hardware obsolete, starting to buy, rack new hardware
    • rebasing waiting until after FF3.6
  • FF3.0.17, 3.5.7 wrapping up
