Requesting SUMO docs from Bugzilla

2020-02-27 Thread Emma Humphries
At the request of the Firefox Desktop team, we've revised how you request
user-facing docs (in SUMO) from Bugzilla.

There's a new flag, `user-doc-firefox`, available to Firefox related

Its use is documented in

The summary is, set the flag to `docs-needed` if you think your work
requires user-facing documentation. The SUMO team will get notifications.

You can file documentation issues in, or ask in #bug-handling: on

Intent to prototype and ship: ARIA annotations

2020-02-27 Thread James Teh
In Firefox 75, we intend to enable ARIA annotations by default.

Summary: This adds two new ARIA roles, a new aria-description attribute and
expands aria-details. These changes are needed to support screen reader
accessibility of comments, suggestions and other annotations in published
documents and online word processing scenarios such as Google Docs, iCloud
Pages, and MS Office Online. This is not currently possible without
resorting to live region hacks, which are not as reliable as semantics and
do not work well with Braille displays. As a result, screen reader users
have non-optimal support for collaboration features of online word
Standard: Incorporated into ARIA 1.3 editor's draft. Explainer with links
to pull requests:
Platform coverage: desktop
Preference: None. Because this simply exposes new values to accessibility
clients using existing accessibility APIs, we do not anticipate any
DevTools bug: None. Both the DOM inspector and accessibility inspector will
reflect this new information without any additional work.
Other browsers: Chrome shipping enabled by default in version 82:
web-platform-tests: None. ARIA WPT is still somewhat of a work in progress
and hasn't been updated for ARIA 1.2 yet, let alone 1.3. We will have Gecko
tests, though.
Secure contexts: Not restricted to secure contexts, consistent with the
rest of ARIA.
Is this feature enabled by default in sandboxed iframes?: Yes; has no
impact on sandboxed iframes.
Link to standards-positions discussion:
How stable is the spec: The spec is straightforward and has been reviewed
and approved by stakeholders across the accessibility industry. We do not
anticipate any fundamental changes.

Re: Intent to implement: Cookie SameSite=lax by default and SameSite=none only if secure

2020-02-27 Thread amarchesini
Hi everyone,

here is something more about cookies sameSite=lax by default.

In order to test this feature properly and to see the level of breakage 
introduced, we've decided to enable it in nightly.


This feature is partially covered by web-platform-tests:

As you know, Chrome is already rolling out this feature: it's active for 1% of 
their population.

I filed a meta bug to collect breakages -
