Mozilla Hosting the U.S. Commerce Department Digital Economy Board of Advisors

Mitchell Baker - vr, 30/09/2016 - 16:10

Today Mozilla is hosting the second meeting of the Digital Economy Board of Advisors of the United States Department of Commerce, of which I am co-chair.

Support for the global open Internet is the heart of Mozilla’s identity and strategy. We build for the digital world. We see and understand the opportunities it offers, as well as the threats to its future. We live in a world where a free and open Internet is not available to all of the world’s citizens; where trust and security online cannot be taken for granted; and where independence and innovation are thwarted by powerful interests as often as they are protected by good public policy. As I noted in my original post on being named to the Board, these challenges are central to the “Digital Economy Agenda,” and a key reason why I agreed to participate.

Department of Commerce Secretary Pritzker noted earlier this year: “we are no longer moving toward the digital economy. We have arrived.” The purpose of the Board is to advise the Commerce Department in responding to today’s new status quo. Today technology provides platforms and opportunities that enable entrepreneurs with new opportunities. Yet not everyone shares the benefits. The changing nature of work must also be better understood. And we struggle to measure these gains, making it harder to design policies that maximize them, and harder still to defend the future of our digital economy against myopic and reactionary interests.

The Digital Economy Board of Advisors was convened to explore these challenges, and provide expert advice from a range of sectors of the digital economy to the Commerce Department as it develops future policies. At today’s meeting, working groups within the Board will present their initial findings. We don’t expect to agree on everything, of course. Our goal is to draw out the shared conclusions and direction to provide a balanced, sustainable, durable basis for future Commerce Department policy processes. I will follow up with another post on this topic shortly.

Today’s meeting is a public meeting. There will be two live streams: one for the 8:30 am-12:30 pm PT pre-lunch session and one for the afternoon post-lunch 1:30-3:00pm PT. We welcome you to join us.

Although the Board has many more months left in its tenure, I can see a trend towards healthy alignment between our mission and the outcomes of the Board’s activities. I’m proud to serve as co-chair of this esteemed group of individuals.

Mozilla Addons Blog: WebExtensions in Firefox 51

Mozilla planet - do, 29/09/2016 - 16:43

Firefox 51 landed in Developer Edition this week, so we have another update on WebExtensions for you. In this update, we’re making it easier for you to port your existing add-ons to WebExtensions. In addition to being fully compatible with multiprocess Firefox, WebExtensions are becoming the standard for add-on development.

Embedded WebExtensions

In Firefox Developer Edition, you can now embed a WebExtensions add-on inside an existing SDK or bootstrapped add-on.

This is especially useful to developers of SDK or bootstrapped add-ons who want to start migrating to WebExtensions and take advantage of new APIs like Native Messaging, but can’t fully migrate yet. It’s also useful for developers who want to complete data migration towards WebExtensions, and who want to take parts of their add-on that are not compatible with multiprocess Firefox and make them compatible.

For more documentation on this, please head over to MDN or check out some examples.

If you need help porting to WebExtensions, please start with the compatibility checker, and check out these resources.

Manifest Change

Because of confusion around the use of strict_min_version in WebExtensions manifests, we’ve prevented the use of * in strict_min_version, for example 48.* is no longer valid. If you upload an add-on to addons.mozilla.org we’ll warn you of that fact.

API Changes

The clipboardWrite permission is now enabled which removes the need to be in a user gesture. This is usable from extension tabs, popups and content scripts.

When a WebExtensions add-on is uninstalled, any local storage is now cleared. If you’d like to persist data across an uninstall then you can use the upcoming sync storage.

The management API now supports the uninstallSelf and getSelf methods. The idle.queryState API has been updated to accurately reflect the state, previously it always returned the value “idle”.

In the webRequest API, onBeforeRequest is now supported in Firefox Nightly and Developer Edition. There are some platform changes that are required to get that to land in a Release version of Firefox.

Developers have been testing out Native messaging and a couple of bugs were filed and fixed on that. New, more detailed, documentation has been written. One of the useful pieces of feedback involved the performance of the round-trip time, and that has now improved.

There has been a few improvements to the appearance of popup windows including the popup arrow, the corners of the popup and reducing flicker on the animation. Here’s a before and after:

popup-before

popup-after

Out of process extensions

Now that the majority of the work multi process Firefox has been completed, we are looking ahead to the many improvements it can bring. One of them is allowing WebExtensions to be run in a separate process. This process-sandboxing of add-ons will bring clear performance and security benefits.

But before we can do that, there is quite a bit of work that needs to be done. The main tracking bug lists some of these tasks. There is also a video of Rob Wu presenting the work he has done on this. There currently isn’t a timeline for when this will be landed, but the work is progressing.

Recognition

We’d also like to give a thank you to four new contributors to WebExtensions, who’ve helped with this release. Thanks to sj, Jorg K, fiveNinePlusR and Tomislav.

Firefox Nightly: Firefox Nightly got its “What’s New” page back last week!

Mozilla planet - do, 29/09/2016 - 16:08

Years ago, every time we were releasing a new version of Firefox and bumped the version number for all Firefox channels, nightly builds were also getting a “What’s New” page displayed at restart after that major version number change (this old page is still available on the WayBack Machine and you can even see a video with ex-QA team lead Juan Becerra).

Then, at some point (Bug 748503), the call to that What’s New page was redirected to the First Run page. It made sense at the time as nobody was actively maintaining that content and it had not been updated in years, but it was also shutting down one of the few direct communication channels with our Nightly users.

Kohei Yoshino and myself worked on resurrecting that page and turn it into a simple yet effective communication channel with our Nightly users where they can get news about what’s new in the Nightly world.

What's New page for Nightly

Unlike the old page we had, this new updated version is integrated correctly into mozilla.org framework (bedrock) which means that we inherit from the nice templates they create and have a workflow which allows localization of that page (see the French and Japanese version of the page) and we might even be able to provide conditional content based on geolocation in the future.

We have created this page with the objective of increasing participation and communication with our core technical users and we intend to update it periodically and make it useful not only to Mozilla with calls to feedback and testing of recently landed features but also to Nightly users (how about having a monthly power-user tip there for example?).

If you have ideas on what information could be part of this What’s New page, don’t hesitate to leave a comment on the blog or to reach out to me directly (pascal At mozilla Dot com)!

CREDITS

Many thanks to Kohei for his great work on the design and the quality of his code. Thanks to the rest of the Release Management team and in particular to Liz Henry and Marcia Knous for helping fix my English! Many thanks to the mozilla.org webdev team for helping with reviews and suggesting nice visual tricks such as the responsive multi-column layout and improved typography tips for readability. Finally, thanks to the localizers that took the time to translate that page in a couple of days before we shipped it even though the expected audience is very small!

BONUS

We were asked via our @FirefoxNightly Twitter account if we could provide the nice background on the What’s New page as a wallpaper for desktop. Instead of providing the file, I am showing you in the following video tutorial how you can do it by yourself with Firefox Nightly Developer Tools, enjoy hacking with your browser and the Web, that’s what Nightly is for!

Michael Kaply: Keyword Search is No Longer Feeling Lucky

Mozilla planet - do, 29/09/2016 - 15:38

I’m getting a lot of reports that the Google “I’m Feeling Lucky” option is no longer working with Keyword Search. Unfortunately Google seems to have broken this in their latest search update even though they’ve left the button on the homepage. There’s nothing I can really do to work around it at this time.

If you want a similar feature, you can switch to DuckDuckGo and use their “I’m Feeling Ducky” option.

Daniel Stenberg: 25,000 curl questions on stackoverflow

Mozilla planet - do, 29/09/2016 - 14:43

stackoverflow-logoOver time, I’ve reluctantly come to terms with the fact that a lot of questions and answers about curl is not done on the mailing lists we have setup in the project itself.

A primary such external site with curl related questions is of course stackoverflow – hardly news to programmers of today. The questions tagged with curl is of course only a very tiny fraction of the vast amount of questions and answers that accumulate on that busy site.

The pile of questions tagged with curl on stackoverflow has just surpassed the staggering number of 25,000. Of course, these questions involve persons who ask about particular curl behaviors (and a large portion is about PHP/CURL) but there’s also a significant amount of tags for questions where curl is only used to do something and that other something is actually what the question is about. And ‘libcurl’ is used as a separate tag and is often used independently of the ‘curl’ one. libcurl is tagged on almost 2,000 questions.

curl-symbolBut still. 25,000 questions. Wow.

I visit that site every so often and answer to some questions but I often end up feeling a great “distance” between me and questions there, and I have a hard time to bridge that gap. Also, stackoverflow the site and the format isn’t really suitable for debugging or solving problems within curl so I often end up trying to get the user move over to file an issue on curl’s github page or discuss the curl problem on a mailing list instead. Forums more suitable for plenty of back-and-forth before the solution or fix is figured out.

Now, any bets for how long it takes until we reach 100K questions?
