Life Cycle of a Firefox Crash - Video and Graph

You may have seen my blog post about The Life Cycle of a Crash some time ago.

On June 14, I talked about this at a Mozilla Brown Bag, and there is a video of this presentation up on Air Mozilla.



The slides for that talk are available as well.

And here's the graph on the Firefox Crash Life Cycle I used at the end of that talk:

crash reports with comments
Kairo: You said that only 20% of FF crash reports get processed as a means of throttling the data. If a user bothers to comment, does that report always get processed? (Since I'm running SeaMonkey, I know my reports will get processed ;) Of course, I haven't see a crash in a long while :) :)

re: crash reports with comments
Rich - http://crash-stats.mozilla.org (aka Socorro) processes 10% of incoming crashes from the Firefox release channel, and also any crash containing a comment.

You can see the rules here:
