    David Major was curious about what's most on my mind nowadays and if there's anything coming up that our team should watch out for.

    This status post is far from comprehensive in any way, it's just a list of things I worked on last week, but I think it does show my current areas of focus. Let me know if you'd like to know about anything else.

    In no particular order:

    • Other regular meetings: Flash program review, e10s standups, performance testing meeting

    • Filed bug 1129236 - e10s -- Plugin hang locks up browser

    Bug 863514 - Electrolysis: Make gesture support work (In Progress)
    Bug 1068360 - [e10s] Mixed content blocker doorhanger doesn't work (In Review)

    Done:

    • bug 1068360 - mixed content notification - patch posted, fixing the basic here was very simple. I need to investigate a bit more when mixedContentChannel would get cleared or changed, to make sure it is the same behavior of the isMixedChannelAllowed flag. I imagine I'll need to dispatch an event from docshell and sync this information up in the parent. But this is not important for fixing this specific bug because the network code for mixed content still needs some extra fixing for e10s: bug 1084504
    • bug 1072287 - blinking tab titles - on last Thursday's e10s meeting myself and a few other people tried to reproduce it and couldn't any longer (everybody could easily see the prob before when we triaged the bug), so it was agreed that this bug is worksforme
    • bug 863514 - Gesture support - made more progress on this.. I'm basically converting browser_gestureSupport to work as a frame script. It's a bit more convoluted than expected because the code there is really generic (handling actions as named in prefs, etc.), and it also handles the OSX swiping animations (which are disabled by default but exist)
    • I did some coordination related to getting a SUMO article with screenshots about the automatic translation feature, because the promotional doorhanger that was rolled out with the first beta 34 includes a link to it. Took screenshots from FF on 5 different locales and submitted them to SUMO and talked with the sumo folks to get those approved. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatic-translation

The idea is to ask for a release branch and check if all the relevant landings on the branch are ported appropriately to all the current & active named-branches. Unfortunately, the logic of deciphering what are current active named branches on a given release is not trivial.
