Weekly Status Report, W32/2012
- CSI:Mozilla / CrashKill:
Flash continues to be a huge stability topic, followed new updates of 11.3 as well as the 11.4 beta versions, where Adobe fixed a high-ranking crash we saw in an earlier beta.
In all that Flash talk, I found a slight detection issue in Socorro and created a patch to fix it.
An even larger topic in that week was a crash that happened to people with Google as a homepage, related to their sports game doodles to celebrate some large sporting event on the UK's capital. I'm planning a separate post on this issue, but the relevant bug was found to have security implications, so I'll wait until we have a release out with the fix and the bug becomes public.
I also stayed in contact with the Socorro team while they were working with IT to get their staging environment fixed and to push support for rapid betas to it.
Together with Naoki, I investigated a rising mobile crash with quite old Android versions (Froyo).
Weighed into design discussions of the B2G first run experience to make sure we include an info and opt-out for crash reporting.
Coming out of those discussions, and talking to Ted about bandwidth concerns, I filed a bug on compressing reports based on his suggestions.
Did some small updates to my pretty rough overview page for my custom reports.
Also added a column with other affected versions to the Flash version topcrash report and made display of hang pair details a bit nicer.
Had some conversations with aphadke on crash summary data.
As usual, watched new/rising crashes, caring that bugs are filed where needed, and made sure my custom reports keep working well.
While the 2.11 versions of EarlyBlue and LCARStrek were made public on AMO, worked on the first parts for the 2.12 versions matching the Mozilla 15 train.
- Various Discussions/Topics:
B2G and FTP, Google suggest on Android and privacy, packaged apps and developer experience, bug fix verifications, build system changes and comm-central, etc.
This update is late again, as I was limited in work time at the start of the week due to a family birthday party.
That said, with the ongoing focus on Flash stability and the Google doodle issue, the last week was quite busy and intense in Firefox stability matters. It looks like we are making progress on all fronts, though, so I'm definitely positive that things will get better in the long run.
And in other news, I now know that I'll attend MozCamp Europe in Warsaw. Hope to meet many Mozillians there!
