Firefox Focus New to Android, blocks annoying ads and protects your privacy

Mozilla Blog - ti, 20/06/2017 - 15:06

Last year, we introduced Firefox Focus, a new browser for the iPhone and iPad, designed to be fast, simple and always private. A lot has happened since November; and more than ever before, we’re seeing consumers play an active role in trying to protect their personal data and save valuable megabytes on their data plans.

While we knew that Focus provided a useful service for those times when you want to keep your web browsing to yourself, we were floored by your response  – it’s the highest rated browser from a trusted brand for the iPhone and iPad, earning a 4.6 average rating on the App Store.

Today, I’m thrilled to announce that we’re launching our Firefox Focus mobile app for Android.

Like the iPhone and iPad version, the Android app is free of tabs and other visual clutter, and erasing your sessions is as easy as a simple tap.  Firefox Focus allows you to browse the web without being followed by tracking ads which are notoriously known for slowing down your mobile experience.  Why do we block these ad trackers? Because they not only track your behavior without your knowledge, they also slow down the web on your mobile device.

Check out this video to learn more:

 

New Features for Android

For the Android release of Firefox Focus, we added the following features:

  • Ad tracker counter – For the curious, there’s a counter to list the number of ads that are blocked per site while using the app.
  • Disable tracker blocker – For sites that are not loading correctly, you can disable the tracker blocker to quickly take care of it and get back to where you’ve left off.
  • Notification reminder – When Focus is running in the background, we’ll remind you through a notification and you can easily tap to erase your browsing history.

For Android users we also made Focus a great default browser experience. Since we support both custom tabs and the ability to disable the ad blocking as needed, it works great with apps like Facebook when you just want to read an article without being tracked. We built Focus to empower you on the mobile web, and we will continue to introduce new features that make our products even better. Thanks for using Firefox Focus for a faster and more private mobile browsing experience.

Firefox Nightly: Resolved: Fixed – A short story about a community-reported bug

Mozilla planet - ti, 20/06/2017 - 11:14

Firefox Nightly users, thanks to the telemetry an crash reports they send to Mozilla, are an amazing help to Firefox developers. The aggregated data sent by our community is extremely useful and allows spotting performance or stability regressions at the earliest stages of development. It probably can’t be emphasized enough how just using Nightly is a great way to get involved in Mozilla.

That said, we have in our Nightly community people that also actively hunt an report bugs and regressions and provide us detailed feedback, usually via the opening of a bug report in Bugzilla. These people are our core community, our first line of defense against regressions, they allow us to ship faster and better software and many of them have been involved in Mozilla and Firefox for a long time.

Mozilla Suite nightly start screen

Have you filed a bug?” is something you often hear open source developers say to people that report them some anomaly or regression, and for the majority of our users, this sounds like a complicated process. Just explaining the bug they experience in terms that make the bug report actionable by the developer that will fix it is a skill in itself. And this is where our core community of power-users on Nightly shines, they have this skill.

But what if the reporter has these skills but is not comfortable communicating in English because it is not her native language? Yes, language can also be a barrier to giving feedback…

A few days ago, a mozillian from our Spanish community (web developer in an IT company in Spain), sent me an email about a regression he was experiencing at work with nightly in the last days. This is the story I want to tell because it illustrates how powerful community work in open source can be and how lucky Mozilla is to have a dedicated global community.

Fernando, or StripTM as we know him in the Mozilla Hispano community, sent me an email about a major performance regression with forms on a page they have on their intranet, clicking in a form field would freeze the browser for seconds, and he wanted to know if I had heard about it. I didn’t so I asked him if there was a way I could see this page.

Intranets are tricky, the content there is by definition not public. But StripTM being a Web developer, he emailed me a reduced anonymized version of the page so as that I could test locally if I could see the bug and yes, I was experiencing it as well.

Since StripTM is not always comfortable writing bug reports in English, I did it for him and filed bug 1372843 a week ago and attached his test case. I fired up mozregression and found out that the bug was caused by the recent activation of Form Autofill in Nightly (see our article Preview Form Autofill in Firefox Nightly). In a nutshell, the performance problem was caused by the fact that this intranet page had 170(!) forms and our heuristics were cycling through all of the input fields in the page instead of only  the ones for the form we had clicked in.

All in all, it took a total of 3 days to discover the performance problem, file a bug and get a patch for it in mozilla-central. This is what happens when you can put passionate and skilled volunteers in contact with our equally passionate and skilled staff!

So thank you Fernando for using Nightly all these years and yes, the publishing date of this post is also a way for us to thank you for your involvement in Mozilla and wish you a happy birthday!

Daniel Stenberg: c-ares 1.13.0

Mozilla planet - ti, 20/06/2017 - 08:15

The c-ares project may not be very fancy or make a lot of noise, but it steadily moves forward and boasts an amazing 95% code coverage in the automated tests.

Today we release c-ares 1.13.0.

This time there’s basically three notable things to take home from this, apart from the 20-something bug-fixes.

CVE-2017-1000381

Due to an oversight there was an API function that we didn’t fuzz and yes, it was found out to have a security flaw. If you ask a server for a NAPTR DNS field and that response comes back crafted carefully, it could cause c-ares to access memory out of bounds.

All details for CVE-2017-1000381 on the c-ares site.

(Side-note: this is the first CVE I’ve received with a 7(!)-digit number to the right of the year.)

cmake

Now c-ares can optionally be built using cmake, in addition to the existing autotools setup.

Virtual socket IO

If you have a special setup or custom needs, c-ares now allows you to fully replace all the socket IO functions with your own custom set with ares_set_socket_functions.

New RFCs Style RFCs

Style RFCs are part of the process for deciding on style guidelines for the Rust community and defaults for Rustfmt. The process is similar to the RFC process, but we try to reach rough consensus on issues (including a final comment period) before progressing to PRs. Just like the RFC process, all users are welcome to comment and submit RFCs. If you want to help decide what Rust code should look like, come get involved!

We're making good progress and the style is coming together. If you want to see the style in practice, check out our example or use the Integer32 Playground and select 'Proposed RFC' from the 'Format' menu. Be aware that implementation is work in progress.

Mozilla Marketing Engineering & Ops Blog: MozMEAO SRE Status Report - June 20, 2017

Mozilla planet - ti, 20/06/2017 - 02:00

Here’s what happened on the MozMEAO SRE team from June 13th - June 20th.

Current work Static site hosting
  • The irlpodcast site now has a staging environment also hosted in S3 with CloudFront. Additionally, Jenkins has been updated to deploy to staging and production via git push.

  • We’re going to move viewsourceconf.org from Kubernetes to S3 and CloudFront hosting. Production and staging environments have been provisioned, but we’ll need to update Jenkins to push changes to these new environments.

Basket move to Kubernetes Kubernetes (general)

Our DataDog, New Relic and MIG DaemonSets have been configured to use Kubernetes tolerations to schedule pods on master nodes. This allows us to capture metrics from K8s master nodes in additional to worker nodes.

Frankfurt Kubernetes cluster provisioning

Work continues to enable our apps in the new Frankfurt Kubernetes cluster. In addition, we’re working on automating our app installs as must as possible.

MDN
  • ElasticSearch will be upgraded to 2.4 in SCL3 production, June 21 11 AM PST

  • We may reconsider self-hosting ElasticSearch.
