Mozilla Addons Blog: Add-ons Update – Week of 2016/05/11

Mozilla planet - wo, 11/05/2016 - 20:25

I post these updates every 3 weeks to inform add-on developers about the status of the review queues, add-on compatibility, and other happenings in the add-ons world.

The Review Queues

In the past 3 weeks, 1387 listed add-ons were reviewed:

  • 1314 (95%) were reviewed in fewer than 5 days.
  • 40 (3%) were reviewed between 5 and 10 days.
  • 33 (2%) were reviewed after more than 10 days.

There are 67 listed add-ons awaiting review.

You can read about the recent improvements in the review queues here.

If you’re an add-on developer and are looking for contribution opportunities, please consider joining us. Add-on reviewers get invited to Mozilla events and earn cool gear with their work. Visit our wiki page for more information.

Compatibility Communications

Most of you should have received an email from us about the future compatibility of your add-ons. You can use the compatibility tool to enter your add-on ID and get some info on what we think is the best path forward for your add-on. This tool only works for listed add-ons.

To ensure long-term compatibility, we suggest you start looking into WebExtensions, or use the Add-ons SDK and try to stick to the high-level APIs. There are many XUL add-ons that require APIs that aren’t available in either of these options, which is why we ran a survey so we know which APIs we should look into adding to WebExtensions. You can read about the survey results here.

We’re holding regular office hours for Multiprocess Firefox compatibility, to help you work on your add-ons, so please drop in on Tuesdays and chat with us!

Firefox 47 Compatibility

The compatibility blog post for 47 is up and the bulk validation has been run.

Firefox 48 Compatibility

The compatibility blog post for Firefox 48 is coming up soon.

As always, we recommend that you test your add-ons on Beta and Firefox Developer Edition to make sure that they continue to work correctly. End users can install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter to identify and report any add-ons that aren’t working anymore.

Extension Signing

The wiki page on Extension Signing has information about the timeline, as well as responses to some frequently asked questions. The current plan is to remove the signing override preference in Firefox 47.

The preference was actually removed recently in the beta channel (future Firefox 47), though this was done before the unbranded builds were available for testing. We’re trying to get those builds out as soon as possible to avoid more disruption. For now I suggest you use Developer Edition for testing or, if your add-on is restartless, you can also use the temporary load option.

The Mozilla Blog: Mozilla Open Source Support (MOSS): Now Open To All Projects

Mozilla planet - wo, 11/05/2016 - 17:27

Last year, we launched the Mozilla Open Source Support Program (MOSS) – an award program specifically focused on supporting open source and free software. The first track within MOSS (“Foundational Technology”) provides support for open source and free software projects that Mozilla uses or relies on. We are now adding a second track. “Mission Partners” is open to any open source project in the world which is undertaking an activity that meaningfully furthers Mozilla’s mission.

Our mission, as embodied in our Manifesto, is to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. An Internet that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent. We know that many other software projects around the world share these goals with us, and we want to use our resources to help and encourage others to work towards them.

So if you think your project qualifies, we encourage you to apply. Applications for the Mission Partners track are open as of today. (Applications for Foundational Technology also remain open.) You can read more about our selection criteria and committee on the wiki. The budget for this track for 2016 is approximately US$1.25 million.

We are keen to enable applications from groups not currently connected with Mozilla and from communities outside the English-speaking free software world. Therefore, applications for Mission Partners do not require a Mozillian to support them. Instead, they must be endorsed by a well-known and respected figure from the wider software community of which the project is a part.

The deadline for applications for the initial batch of Mission Partners awards is Tuesday, May 31 at 11:59pm Pacific Time. The first awardees will be announced at the Mozilla All Hands in London in the middle of June. After that time, applications will continue to be accepted and will be considered on an ongoing basis.

If you want to be kept informed of updates to the MOSS program, please join our discussion forum and read our updates on the Mozilla blog.

We look forward to considering the applications.

The Mozilla Blog: Firefox for iOS Makes it Faster and Easier to Use the Mobile Web the Way You Want

Mozilla planet - wo, 11/05/2016 - 15:02

We’re always focused on making the best Firefox experience we can offer. We want to give you complete control over your web experience, while also making sure to protect your privacy and security the best we can. Today, we’re pleased to share an update to Firefox for iOS that gives you a more streamlined experience and that allows for more control over your mobile browsing experience.

What’s New in Firefox for iOS?

iOS Today Widget: We know that getting to what you need on the Web fast is important, especially on your mobile, so you can access Firefox through the iOS Today widget to quickly open a new tab, a new private tab or a recently copied URL.

Awesomebar: Firefox for iOS allows you to search your bookmarks and history within the smart URL bar, making it easier to quickly access your favorite websites.

Search bookmarks

Manage Security: By default, Firefox helps to ensure your security by warning you when a website’s connection is not secure. When you attempt to access an unsafe website, you’ll see an error message stating that the connection is untrusted, and you are prevented from accessing that site. With iOS, you can now temporarily ignore these error messages for websites you have deemed as “safe”, but that might register as potentially unsafe by Firefox.

SSL Certificate

Robert O'Callahan: Data On x86-64 Register Usage

Mozilla planet - wo, 11/05/2016 - 13:47

I looked into the frequency of register usage in x86-64. I disassembled optimized and debug builds of Firefox's libxul.so and counted, for each general-purpose register, the number of instructions referencing that register. The graph below shows those results, normalized to a fraction of the total number of instructions in each binary.

These results severely undercount the actual usage of rsp, since it's implicitly used in every push, pop, call and ret instruction, but otherwise should be accurate. 8, 16 and 32-bit registers were counted as the 64-bit register they belong to.

Observations:

  • Debug builds use rax and rbp a lot more than optimized builds. This is because gcc debug builds keep local variables in memory and reference them via rbp. Optimized builds use register allocation to spread locals across registers and do a lot fewer memory references.
  • Optimized builds make far more use of r12-r15 than r8-r11. I think that's because r12-r15 are four of the six callee-saves registers in the System V x86-64 ABI (the others are rbx and rbp), so the third callee-saves register you allocate will be r12. On the other hand rdi, rsi, rax, rdx and rcx are all caller-saves so you don't get into r8 etc until you need a sixth caller-saves register.
  • In optimized builds r11 is referenced by less than 0.4% of instructions, so it looks like there's no need for more caller-saves general-purpose registers, and given the least-used callee-saves register r15 is still used by 3% of instructions, maybe it would have been a good idea for the x86-64 ABI to make more registers callee-saves instead of caller-saves.
It would be interesting to repeat this analysis weighting the instructions by execution count over some workload.
