Wil Clouser: Meet the New Test Pilot

Mozilla planet - wo, 27/01/2016 - 09:00

Effective immediately, we've renamed the Idea Town program to Test Pilot.

The original Test Pilot was an opt-in "labs" project around measuring what people actually did with the browser in small experiments, but hasn't been used in over a year and has no future plans. We'll be using the name and some of the assets to accelerate our original Idea Town plans.

At first glance the two projects appear similar but have key differences. I originally wrote a list to clarify what the new Test Pilot program was but decided it would be most useful if everyone could see it. Below is a rough description of the new Test Pilot.

  • Test Pilot is an evolving set of stepping stones for getting an idea from a concept stage to landing in Firefox itself in an expedient way, being measured and verified along that path.
  • Test Pilot is not a prototyping team.
  • Test Pilot team members are amplifiers of people participating in the program. When a person or group submits an idea to Test Pilot they are starting a process in which they should expect to be involved until a conclusion is reached.
  • Test Pilot team members help participants progress through the Test Pilot process in whichever ways are needed - from boiling an idea down to get at a measurable core concept, documenting an idea thoroughly, iterating on designs and prototypes, assisting with coding, communicating with appropriate teams around Mozilla, and helping uplift a successful idea to its next stage in life. An analogy could be made between Test Pilot team members and consultants.
  • Test Pilot's intention is to facilitate providing decision-makers with quality, focused data in a short period of time.
  • Test Pilot works very closely with the Mozilla community (including paid staff).

I'm working on our migration plan but the Test Pilot wiki page is up and contains links to getting involved and staying up to date on further changes.

Long live Test Pilot. Again.

Aaron Klotz: Announcing Mozdbgext

Mozilla planet - ti, 26/01/2016 - 20:45

A well-known problem at Mozilla is that, while most of our desktop users run Windows, most of Mozilla’s developers do not. There are a lot of problems that result from that, but one of the most frustrating to me is that sometimes those of us that actually use Windows for development find ourselves at a disadvantage when it comes to tooling or other productivity enhancers.

In many ways this problem is also a Catch-22: People don’t want to use Windows for many reasons, but tooling is big part of the problem. OTOH, nobody is motivated to improve the tooling situation if nobody is actually going to use them.

A couple of weeks ago my frustrations with the situation boiled over when I learned that our Cpp unit test suite could not log symbolicated call stacks, resulting in my filing of bug 1238305 and bug 1240605. Not only could we not log those stacks, in many situations we could not view them in a debugger either.

Due to the fact that PDB files consume a large amount of disk space, we don’t keep those when building from integration or try repositories. Unfortunately they are be quite useful to have when there is a build failure. Most of our integration builds, however, do include breakpad symbols. Developers may also explicitly request symbols for their try builds.

A couple of years ago I had begun working on a WinDbg debugger extension that was tailored to Mozilla development. It had mostly bitrotted over time, but I decided to resurrect it for a new purpose: to help WinDbg* grok breakpad.

Enter mozdbgext

mozdbgext is the result. This extension adds a few commands that makes Win32 debugging with breakpad a little bit easier.

The original plan was that I wanted mozdbgext to load breakpad symbols and then insert them into the debugger’s symbol table via the IDebugSymbols3::AddSyntheticSymbol API. Unfortunately the design of this API is not well equipped for bulk loading of synthetic symbols: each individual symbol insertion causes the debugger to re-sort its entire symbol table. Since xul.dll’s quantity of symbols is in the six-figure range, using this API to load that quantity of symbols is prohibitively expensive. I tweeted a Microsoft PM who works on Debugging Tools for Windows, asking if there would be any improvements there, but it sounds like this is not going to be happening any time soon.

My original plan would have been ideal from a UX perspective: the breakpad symbols would look just like any other symbols in the debugger and could be accessed and manipulated using the same set of commands. Since synthetic symbols would not work for me in this case, I went for “Plan B:” Extension commands that are separate from, but analagous to, regular WinDbg commands.

I plan to continuously improve the commands that are available. Until I have a proper README checked in, I’ll introduce the commands here.

Loading the Extension
  1. Use the .load command: .load <path_to_mozdbgext_dll>
Loading the Breakpad Symbols
  1. Extract the breakpad symbols into a directory.
  2. In the debugger, enter !bploadsyms <path_to_breakpad_symbol_directory>
  3. Note that this command will take some time to load all the relevant symbols.
Working with Breakpad Symbols

Note: You must have successfully run the !bploadsyms command first!

As a general guide, I am attempting to name each breakpad command similarly to the native WinDbg command, except that the command name is prefixed by !bp.

  • Stack trace: !bpk
  • Find nearest symbol to address: !bpln <address> where address is specified as a hexadecimal value.
Downloading windbgext

I have pre-built a 32-bit binary (which obviously requires 32-bit WinDbg). I have not built a 64-bit binary yet, but the code should be source compatible.

Note that there are several other commands that are “roughed-in” at this point and do not work correctly yet. Please stick to the documented commands at this time.

* When I write “WinDbg”, I am really referring to any debugger in the Debugging Tools for Windows package, including cdb.

Yunier José Sosa Vázquez: Soporte para WebM/VP9, más seguridad y nuevas herramientas para desarrolladores en el nuevo Firefox

Mozilla planet - ti, 26/01/2016 - 19:56

¡Como pasa el tiempo amigos! Casi sin darnos cuenta han transcurrido 6 semanas y hasta hemos comenzado un año nuevo, un año en el que Mozilla prepara nuevas funcionalidades que harán de Firefox un mejor como por ejemplo: la separación de procesos, el uso de vías alternas para ejecutar plugins y la nueva API para desarrollar complementos “multi navegador”.

Desde el anuncio en 2010 del formato de video WebM, Mozilla ha mostrado un especial interés al ser una alternativa potente frente a los formatos propietarios del mercado que existían en aquel momento y de esta forma mejorar la experiencia de los usuarios al reproducir videos en la web. Con esta liberación se ha habilitado el soporte para WebM/VP9 en aquellos sistemas que no soportan MP4/H.264.

Desde algunas versiones atrás, Firefox incluye el plugin OpenH264 proveído por Cisco para cumplir las especificaciones de WebRTC y habilitar las llamadas con dispositivos que lo requieran. Ahora, si el decodificador de H.264 está disponible en el sistema, entonces se habilita este codec de video.

Novedades para desarrolladores

En esta oportunidad, los desarrolladores podrán contar con herramientas de animación y filtros CSS, informes sobre consumo de memoria, depuración de WebSocket y más. Todo esto puedes leerlo en el blog de Labs de Mozilla Hispano.

Novedades en Android
  • Los usuarios pueden elegir la página de inicio a mostrar, en vez de los sitios más visitados.
  • El servicio de impresión de Android permite activar la impresión en la nube.
  • Al intentar abrir una URIs, se le pregunta al usuario si desea abrirla en una pestaña privada.
  • Adicionado el soporte para ejecutar URIs con el protocolo mms.
  • Fácil acceso a la configuración de la búsqueda mientras buscamos en Internet.
  • Ahora se muestran las sugerencias del historial de búsqueda.
  • La página Cuentas Firefox ahora está basada en la web.
Otras novedades
  • El soporte para el algoritmo criptográfico RC4 ha sido removido.
  • Soporte para el formato de compresión brotli cuando se usa HTTPS.
  • Uso de un certificado de firmado SHA256 para las versiones de Windows en aras de adaptarse a los nuevos requerimientos.
  • Para soportar el descriptor unicode-range de las fuentes web, el algoritmo de concordancia en Linux usa el mismo código como en las demás plataformas.
  • Firefox no confiará más en la autoridad de certificación Equifax Secure Certificate Authority 1024-bit root o UTN – DATACorp SGC para validar certificados web seguros.
  • El soporte para el teclado en pantalla ha sido temporalmente desactivado en Windows 8 y 8.1.

Si deseas conocer más, puedes leer las notas de lanzamiento (en inglés) para conocer más novedades.

Aclaración para la versión móvil.

En las descargas se pueden encontrar 3 versiones para Android. El archivo que contiene i386 es para los dispositivos que tengan la arquitectura de Intel. Mientras que en los nombrados arm, el que dice api11 funciona con Honeycomb (3.0) o superior y el de api9 es para Gingerbread (2.3).

Puedes obtener esta versión desde nuestra zona de Descargas en español e inglés para Linux, Mac, Windows y Android. Recuerda que para navegar a través de servidores proxy debes modificar la preferencia network.auth.force-generic-ntlm a true desde about:config.

Tanvi Vyas: Updated Firefox Security Indicators

Mozilla planet - ti, 26/01/2016 - 06:58

Cross posting this. It was written a couple months ago and posted to Mozilla’s Security Blog
This article was coauthored by Aislinn Grigas, Senior Interaction Designer, Firefox Desktop

November 3, 2015

Over the past few months, Mozilla has been improving the user experience of our privacy and security features in Firefox. One specific initiative has focused on the feedback shown in our address bar around a site’s security. The major changes are highlighted below along with the rationale behind each change.

Change to DV Certificate treatment in the address bar

Color and iconography is commonly used today to communicate to users when a site is secure. The most widely used patterns are coloring a lock icon and parts of the address bar green. This treatment has a straightforward rationale given green = good in most cultures. Firefox has historically used two different color treatments for the lock icon – a gray lock for Domain-validated (DV) certificates and a green lock for Extended Validation (EV) certificates. The average user is likely not going to understand this color distinction between EV and DV certificates. The overarching message we want users to take from both certificate states is that their connection to the site is secure. We’re therefore updating the color of the lock when a DV certificate is used to match that of an EV certificate.

Although the same green icon will be used, the UI for a site using EV certificates will continue to differ from a site using a DV certificate. Specifically, EV certificates are used when Certificate Authorities (CA) verify the owner of a domain. Hence, we will continue to include the organization name verified by the CA in the address bar.

Changes to Mixed Content Blocker UI on HTTPS sites

A second change we’re introducing addresses what happens when a page served over a secure connection contains Mixed Content. Firefox’s Mixed Content Blocker proactively blocks Mixed Active Content by default. Users historically saw a shield icon when Mixed Active Content was blocked and were given the option to disable the protection.

Since the Mixed Content state is closely tied to site security, the information should be communicated in one place instead of having two separate icons. Moreover, we have seen that the number of times users override mixed content protection is slim, and hence the need for dedicated mixed content iconography is diminishing. Firefox is also using the shield icon for another feature in Private Browsing Mode and we want to avoid making the iconography ambiguous.

The updated design that ships with Firefox 42 combines the lock icon with a warning sign which represents Mixed Content. When Firefox blocks Mixed Active Content, we retain the green lock since the HTTP content is blocked and hence the site remains secure.

For users who want to learn more about a site’s security state, we have added an informational panel to further explain differences in page security. This panel appears anytime a user clicks on the lock icon in the address bar.

Previously users could click on the shield icon in the rare case they needed to override mixed content protection. With this new UI, users can still do this by clicking the arrow icon to expose more information about the site security, along with a disable protection button.

mixed active content click and subpanel

Users can click the lock with warning icon and proceed to disable Mixed Content Protection.

Loading Mixed Passive Content on HTTPS sites

There is a second category of Mixed Content called Mixed Passive Content. Firefox does not block Mixed Passive Content by default. However, when it is loaded on an HTTPS page, we let the user know with iconography and text. In previous versions of Firefox, we used a gray warning sign to reflect this case.

We have updated this iconography in Firefox 42 to a gray lock with a yellow warning sign. We degrade the lock from green to gray to emphasize that the site is no longer completely secure. In addition, we use a vibrant color for the warning icon to amplify that there is something wrong with the security state of the page.

We also use this iconography when the certificate or TLS connection used by the website relies on deprecated cryptographic algorithms.

The above changes will be rolled out in Firefox 42. Overall, the design improvements make it simpler for our users to understand whether or not their interactions with a site are secure.

Firefox Mobile

We have made similar changes to the site security indicators in Firefox for Android, which you can learn more about here.

The Mozilla Blog: Firefox Can Now Get Push Notifications From Your Favorite Sites

Mozilla planet - ti, 26/01/2016 - 02:56

UPDATED TO CLARIFY HOW TO MANAGE PUSH NOTIFICATIONS

Firefox for Windows, Mac and Linux now lets you choose to receive push notifications from websites if you give them permission. This is similar to Web notifications, except now you can receive notifications for websites even when they’re not loaded in a tab. This is super useful for websites like email, weather, social networks and shopping, which you might check frequently for updates.

You can manage your notifications in the Control Center by clicking the green lock icon on the left side of the address bar. You can learn more about how to manage push notifications here.

Push Notifications for Web Developers
To make this functionality possible, Mozilla helped establish the Web Push W3C standard that’s gaining momentum across the Web. We also continue to explore the new design pattern known as Progressive Web Apps. If you’re a developer who wants to implement push notifications on your site, you can learn more in this Hacks blog post.
