Hey All! Over the last two months, we've made some excellent progress towards improving the stability and feature support of Fission-enabled Firefox!
Are We Fission Yet? The team has been hard at work, pushing down the number of failing Fission Mochitests dramatically over the past few months! We've managed to get the current count down to 324 total skipped and failing tests. Fission Mochitests are now running on tier1 and need your help to get them all to a passing state. Huge thanks to the M-fis team, and everyone who has worked with us to help make this happen! Thanks to the amazing work of :bgrins, :ahal, :gbrown and :kmag, we now have a site for visualizing our current progress on Fission mochitests (and hopefully more in the future)! In classic Mozillian fashion, you can find it at https://arewefissionyet.com/! :kmag also maintains a canonical list <https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kjp32JTuB4axM3wKx0iIYL2Ado-HcyeBhoY-siGxYAs/edit#gid=1560718888>† of failing tests, who's working on them, and their current status, if you're looking to pick up some work and get involved! †: mozilla-internal document, public read-only mirror <https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vRRmnRUOy-KDDScK8o8Z6aKRaEtXKXb39Yn2OOPXoMgZwcMC3Oce3jgSjI5-jRK0jLS73gQYLkfSTJ_/pubhtml?gid=1560718888&single=true> also available. We have had tremendous progress during the ongoing M4 milestone with over 145 fixed bugs <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?list_id=14929323&o1=equals&v1=M4&f1=cf_fission_milestone&resolution=FIXED&classification=Client%20Software&classification=Developer%20Infrastructure&classification=Components&classification=Server%20Software&classification=Other&query_format=advanced>. We would like to thank everyone who’s helped us get this far. The Omniscient Browser Toolbox The Devtools team has made excellent strides updating the toolbox to add out-of-process frame support! As part of this effort, a super-experimental updated Omniscient Toolbox has been created which allows for the Inspector, Console and Debugger tabs to be used to debug not just the parent process, but content processes too! Support for debugging out-of-process Fission content frames is also being added, meaning that this could soon become an amazing and important piece of the browser developer's toolbox! To try this, one can enable “omniscient browser toolbox” in browser toolbox settings panel and restart the toolbox. Huge thanks to the whole team.
