<< Life Cycle of a Firefox Crash - Video and Graph | The roads I take... | Weekly Status Report, W27/2012 >>
Weekly Status Report, W23-24/2012
- CSI:Mozilla / CrashKill:
Updated forced Firefox versions for correlation reports once again.
Together with Sheila, did some triage of old crash bugs.
Commented on the first pieces of Socorro UI work for rapid betas.
Had some discussions with relevant teams on crash reporting for desktop Webapp Runtime and for B2G.
I was also involved in a lot of discussions about the new Flash 11.3 version crashing and hanging a lot more than older versions, mostly with their "Protected Mode" feature. We're continuing to track that.
Had a ton of discussions on all kinds of different angles on Firefox stability Worked on some stats around Socorro bugs and crash signatures that I wanted to have around for Stability Work Week. One result of that is a list of bugs I filed due to our discussions.
I also held a brown bag presentation on the life cycle of Firefox crashes.
- German Localization:
Reviewed patches for Thunderbird 14 and Firefox 14 L10n.
I also synched core and SeaMonkey to changes in the Mozilla 15 cycle, and merged trunk to aurora with that state.
Both doing some work out of the Mountain View offices and the Stability Work Week were extremely welcome to me due to the amount of productive discussions as well as casual chats I could have with people there. The latter is completely absent from work as a remotee, but can have a lot of positive effects on work as well as personal feelings. The stability discussions gave us a good view of where problems lie and how we can improve things in the future. Some of this needs followup discussions, some only concrete work to be done - in all cases we improved mutual understanding of how things work or where we run into certain problems. All in all, a heavily successful two weeks in MV.
The following two weeks (June 18 - July 1), I took some time off to go on vacation in Northern California (and a bit of Southern Oregon, actually).
