Status Report 5
August 1st, 2014.
Things I did the past couple of weeks:
1) Trying to fix leaks:
After finding out that the browser has a dns leak, I went ahead and
tried to look for the causes of this leak and came across
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=942652 , which stated
that not all parts of the browser use the proxy settings. This may or
may not be causing the leaks but it is something that has to be fixed
for sure, hence I'm trying to get advice on how to go about it.
2) Stripping out the unnecessary parts of fennec:
This is something that I have started working on but things seem to be
a little harder than I expected, but I'll keep at it.
3) Contributing to Mozilla:
As we are using the fennec browser, I felt like helping the Mozillians
a bit and hence I worked on a few bugs there and landed about three of
More to come:
- - Trying to fix the dns leak.
- - Helping out Mozilla more.
- - Working on Orbot a little.
