Firefox Desktop & Platform (Javaun/Chad/Martin)

Current Releases

42 Campaign work (TP)
Desktop Control Center and TP work is on track. We are highly aware of string freeze deadline and have imposed early deadlines for creative and legal reviews so that we can hit our 8/10 uplift. There are some known unknowns. Doing are best to make L10N’s life easier.

40
We will put win64 builds out on /all. We don’t have sandboxing until 41, nor some other added UX features. We won’t promote heavily until we have those safety/user features in there, since these are better for a broader audience.

General Topics / Roundtable

(tips/tricks, productivity improvements, industry news)

  • New BrowserTestUtils directory for shared testing utilities
    • BrowserTestUtils has a bunch of useful utilities for testing and avoids having duplication between head.js files.
    • ContentTask.spawn is useful for running code in the content process in an e10s-safe way.
  • How to get a profile from a hung process (Mac and Linux)
  • Easily add live pref-controlled logging to your module which outputs to stdout and the Browser Console (with inspectable objects):

XPCOMUtils.defineLazyGetter(this, "log", () => {
  let ConsoleAPI = Cu.import("resource://gre/modules/devtools/Console.jsm", {}).ConsoleAPI;
  let consoleOptions = {
    maxLogLevelPref: PREF_LOG_LEVEL,
    prefix: "My Log Prefix",
  };
  return new ConsoleAPI(consoleOptions);
});

  • Frequency of this meeting
    • May change to once every 2 weeks. No decision made yet.
  • What is the status of feature reviews?
    • Need to ask bsmedberg. mfinkle gave examples of more things being considered for the list.
  • What is the status of product line reviews?
    • One happened yesterday. An update should occur shortly.
  • Have we centrally documented our new sub-team structure?
    • Helps to find whom to ask if you have a question about something
    • Existing module system doesn’t have answers for User Experience and Product
    • Mossop will document out what the sub-teams are and possibly list members.

  • Need to check if the carousel within Add-On Manager can be used for SeaMonkey specific content. Ted might know.

OPEN

  • bug 1121281 tracks the RelEng automation migration off CVS. Currently two option patches awaiting for Callek’s decision. Once settled, ewong will follow up with RelEng patches based on that decision.

CLOSED

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • Notes:
    • Windows nightly trunk builds are unavailable due to various bugs such as bug 1092468 and bug 1108970. Migrating our Windows builders to Win2008 and our compiler toolchain to VS2013 would likely solve this and other bustages.
    • Ratty has put up some win32 contributed builds on http://seamonkey.callek.net/contrib/.
    • There are also some upcoming changes to L10n build system in Q1 2015 (bug 1107635).
    • Buildmaster is up and running, and produces en-US builds, see 9/16 meeting’s Friends of the Fish Tank. Builds and langpacks in 18 languages including en-US are available unofficially thanks to A.Kalla.
    • bug 1083689 Langpacks aren’t updated when auto-updating SeaMonkey because they aren’t uploaded to AMO. The solution requires changes in SeaMonkey RelEng (and possibly AMO).
    • For various reasons we don’t have a working SeaMonkey Treeherder.
    • wrt bug 1155011, we already have a Soccoro token. The patches on bug 1155013 require approval and then pushed and the work-around patches backed out.
  • [21th July 2015]
    • All trees:
      • Windows platform still busted due to needing Win2008R2 installed.
      • We have a loaner which ewong is working on (see blog for more information).
    • comm-central:
      • All platforms: Busted due to bug 1185583. Patch is awaiting review.
  • See RelEng page for the RelEng status history.

Release Train

SeaMonkey 2.35 Release

  • We plan to release SeaMonkey 2.35 asap in July.
    • For windows builds, we have a loaner win machine from Mozilla for us (i.e. ewong) to do manual window builds.
    • Ratty has landed various patches on the comm-release’s SEAMONKEY_2_35_RELEASE_BRANCH (bug 1177041) and merged recent post-38.1.0 checkins into it on mozilla-esr38.
ewong
  • I have (albeit inconsistently) generated Nightly Win32 trunk builds (2.39a1) and have uploaded them to http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/latest-comm-central-trunk.
  • bug 1177634 prevented me from building on the loaner. The patch attached to that bug is hot-patched to the source prior to the build. (Since this is a ‘building’ issue and not an application code issue, it shouldn’t affect running SeaMonkey.)
  • Complete/partial snippets are not available as I’m trying to figure ’em out.
  • After having done it for a day, the windows builds were broken by bug 1180065 and bug 1180356.
    • The patch attached to bug 1180065 was manually applied to the buildbotmaster, so it’s working now (but needs to be reviewed and pushed to the buildbotcustom repo),
    • bug 1180356 is fixed.
  • Trying to refactor the process to also include the l10n repack steps (which I’m still trying to figure out as I go along).
Ratty

DONE:

  • bug 1177041 (SM2.35-Uplift) Bugs / Patches to be uplifted to comm-release for SeaMonkey 2.35 (and dependencies).
  • bug 1185824 (SM2.35-mozilla-esr38-Uplift) Bugs / Patches to be uplifted to mozilla-esr38 relbranch for SeaMonkey 2.35.
  • Created SEAMONKEY_2_35_RELEASE_BRANCH on mozilla-esr38 (bug 1179808) and comm-release (bug 1180911.
    • SEAMONKEY_2_35_RELEASE_BRANCH on mozilla-esr38 is branched off THUNDERBIRD_38_VERBRANCH. This should contain all the stability and security fixes for mozilla-esr38 which saves us a lot of work. (seems to be the way to go)
    • Also I’ve been doing regular merges from default to SEAMONKEY_2_35_RELEASE_BRANCH which means we are at par with Gecko 38.1.0.

IN PROGRESS:
TO DO:

Extensions and Plugins Compatibility Tracking

  • See Basics page. Please only list current changes here.
  • Addon Compatibility Listings
  • We are looking for a new place to host the Addon Compatibility Listings for the Add-on Converter in order to make it easy to maintain and to serve as the main database for the AMO browsing extension in the future. The details are in this post.
  • Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/
    This tool goes a little further beyond simply modifying install.rdf – it also identifies a few more other things in the code that are Firefox or Thunderbird specific and attempts to change them. Of course, not all extensions can be ported so easily to SeaMonkey since there’s only so much an automated tool like that can do.
    • Lemon Juice continues to improve his already impressive Addon Converter. The source is now available on GitHub [1].
    • looking for a better(?) home for extension-converter pages, along with a way to track successful and conversion-failed add-ons, and respective integration into SeaMonkey by add-on or manager overlay [2], bug 1145026.
    • Rainer Bielefeld together with other community members have been updating the list of Firefox addons that have been successfully converted by the Addon Converter.
    • Ratty filed bug 1130390 to add a link on seamonkey-projects.org to the Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey.
  • The Thunderbird team is now shipping Lightning with Thunderbird. IanN will work on shipping lightning too. Related bugs:
    • bug 516026 Integrate Lightning Into SeaMonkey by Default and Ship SeaMonkey with Lightning Enabled
    • bug 1130854 Package Lightning with Thunderbird for c-c and c-a builds.
    • bug 1113183 Integrate Lightning Into Thunderbird by Default.
    • bug 1130852 Add opt-in dialog to promote Calendar integration [Thunderbird].
  • Proposed replacement for Venkman for shipping with SeaMonkey: Tiny JavaScript Debugger. TinyJSD is a JavaScript debugger for privileged code running Mozilla products like Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey. It serves to debug the application as well as extensions written in JavaScript.
    • IanN filed bug 1133723 Investigate options for replacing Venkman with the TinyJSDebugger.

  • SeaMonkey 2.35 Release Notes (yet to come)
  • Mozilla-central bugs that affect us:
    • Current 38.0-branch releases are subject to Logjam weak-encryption downgrade attack [3] due to security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_128_sha and security.ssl3.dhe_rsa_aes_256_sha being enabled by default
      • bug 1138554 fixed in NSS 3.19.1, uplifted to branches for 39.0+ with bug 1166031, and verified fixed for SM 2.36
      • 2.35 release branch has been established per bug 1179808 to proceed with mozilla-esr38 (THUNDERBIRD_38_VERBRANCH) so it will ship with NSS 3.19.2

2.Next

  • Stalled. Needs a kick.
    • bug 815954 Click-to-Play: Port bug 812562 (click-to-play blocklisted plugins: reshow urlbar notification as with normal click-to-play).
    • bug 476108 GetShortPathNameW fails under some NTFS junctions [patchlove].
  • Current breakages:
  • Mozilla-central bugs that affect us:
    • Firefox is currently changing styles of several Toolkit pages
      • already affected: config.xul for about:config, bug 1125636
      • Toolkit meta bug for about:* pages: bug 1097111 – SeaMonkey tracking in bug 1133743
      • Modern may need updating as IDs are changing, Default needs forking if we want to roll back to previous styles
      • Fallout thus far: bug 1133380 about:privatebrowsing (Default), bug 1133582 about:config (Modern)
      • further work to separate function from style in CSS for about:privatebrowsing in bug 1178008 (3rd-party themes)
    • Our front end Sync UI needs to be updated as the old backend is going away in Gecko/Firefox 31. See: New Firefox Sync has landed in Firefox Nightly. Tracked in:
      • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager.
      • bug 1003434 Add support for about:sync-progress.
      • SeaMonkey won’t be allowed to use the Firefox Sync 1.5 servers. Ewong has set up a FxA 1.5 server and is looking into hosting our own FxAccounts server on a community machine or VPS.
    • A lot of these bugs are due to mozilla-central switching from synchronous APIs to Asynchronous APIs.
    • bug 566746 (asyncFormHistory) Form history should use asynchronous storage API. Tracked in:
      • bug 912031 Use Asynchronous FormHistory.jsm in place of nsIFormHistory2 in Suite.
    • bug 769764 move proxy resolution to separate thread and remove sync api. Tracked in:
      • MailNews bug 791645 Rewrite calls to synchronous nsIProtocolProxyService::DeprecatedBlockingResolve with Async code before DeprecatedBlockingResolve disappears as well.
    • The C++ downloads manager backend nsIDownloadManager is being decommissioned. Firefox and Thunderbird have migrated to jsdownloads.
    • bug 825588 Asynchronous JavaScript API for downloads and bug 851471 Decommission nsIDownloadManager. Tracked in:
      • bug 888915 Move SeaMonkey to the new JavaScript API for downloads when nsIDownloadManager is decommissioned. Neil has a WIP patch on hand.
    • Removal of SSL 3.0 support after POODLE Attack with 2.36, see bug 1106470.
      • bug 1137991 has removed SSL 3.0 checkbox from SSL preferences
      • bug 1149581 covers removal of the related strings
      • Firefox has proceeded with the removal in 39.0 given that Chrome goes the same way [4]
    • We’ve picked up he default for security.tls.version.min from Mozilla Core, but security.tls.version.fallback-limit is new. So we need to consider adding the latter to our preferences UI (bug 1123673).
      • Currently unclear whether or not this should be done after bug 1084025 disable insecure TLS version fallback entirely by default [5]
      • alternative proposal is to make whitelist for acceptable fallback sites available in the UI, which seems to make more sense.

Feature List, Planning

With Firefox announcing that XUL/XBL will be removed in the next couple of years probably, what is SM’s long-term plan to be able to maintain its UI? Discuss.

  • was discussed last time and deferred due to the lack of any specific roadmap and insufficient information what exactly is planned.

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 30 new, 13 fixed, 19 triaged.

  • Medium triaging effort, average number of new bugs filed.
  • IanN thinks it would be useful to remind people on the newsgroups / forums that they can contribute by triaging. Tonymec will post a reminder to newsgroups / forums. See bug 1092632 (Sm_tri_HowTo) Document how to triage SeaMonkey bugs.
    • The draft is currently at https://wiki.mozilla.org/User:Tonymec/Triage_HowTo
    • Progress is stalled due to hardware/firmware problems with Tonymec’s current computer. Current ETA for newer computer is after Easter but this is a rough estimate. Anyone with a wikimoz account can edit the page (and is welcome to). — Tonymec (talk) 17:35, 21 January 2015 (PST)
