This Week in Perf


  • Landed bug 514407 – should help with startups where we rebuild the search plugin cache (first start, after updates) and with UI responsiveness after managing or installing new plugins.
  • Bug 475289 has been updated, hopefully getting review this week.
  • Wrote tests for bug 507073 – looking to get it up for review over the weekend.

In other news, I’ll be landing a patch soon that adds a new ioService property to NetUtil. Once in, it will no longer be necessary to create your own reference to nsIIOService if you’re already using NetUtil for asyncCopy or newURI.

I’ll be taking some time off starting Tuesday until the 22nd, so the next update won’t be until the 25th. See you then!
