Stability Report


  • We had some data problems due to metrics datacenter move last week, everything is fixed now.


  • Flash hangs and crashes are higher in 11+ than they were in 9. Possibly not much we can do on our side, might be Adobe problems or website changes since those times.


  • bug 640904 – Spike is signature for b6. Might be 3rd party related since there is an increase across all version but more pronounced in b6 (crash rank #2). Won’t block release on this.
  • bug 747847 seems to be a regression between 12.0b5 and 12.0b6 (crash rank #26).
  • bug 720991 (or bug 714187?) has become worse over the weekend (crash rank #16 in 12.0b6, but exists on 12.0b5 as well).


  • bug 736695 is still *the* topcrash on 14. Not much activity recently though bz, sicking and smaug have been on it earlier.
