Beta (6)

  • Going to ask for a (non-urgent) build today
    • This build will have js PGO turned off again (it's currently on) as we don't intend to ship with it (accidentally had it enabled through a comedy of errors, whoops)

Firefox Sync

Add-on Builder Beta!

Add-on SDK 1.0

Input 4.3

  • No ETA; working on IT blockers for getting metrics cluster up first
  • Will be in semi-maintenance mode for the quarter shoring up the app (WebDev resources divided with Mozillians.org), while working more on getting insights from the current system as it is now with Metrics.

Other notes:

  • Getting close to a working extension for feedback on specific add-ons
  • Working with the BMO team on defining a set of requirements to allow folks to file bugs into Bugzilla via an option on Input

Feedback Summary

  • Youtube broke (all on-site videos were solid black) on 7/8, works over https. It was fixed the next day but users needed to clear cache. (Some users also had to disable zynga toolbar).
  • Beta (6) feedback: Extensions, extensions, extensions. And Firefox updates too often.
