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.
