Rebasing mobile/ commits onto FF68 branch
Some BridgeDB reviews
Updated only-private-tabs on Android (#24920)
Filed "Begin bootstrapping immediately after success" (#30756)
Stumbled over "search.disconnect.me don't work for a long time
now" during rebase (#27437)
Some alpha release prep
Understand why the new alpha release is rejected by Google Play
and resolve it. (GeKo: We'll block the mobile part of the release but
proceed with the other platforms)
More rebasing and begin testing FF68 branch
- helped with publishing 8.5.1
- helped with building 9.0a2
- made patch for #30779 (OpenSSL 1.1.1c is not built reproducibly)
- worked on #28672 (Android reproducible build of Snowflake):
finally managed to build some snowflakeclient.aar file. I still need to
clean-up patches, and find where the snowflakeclient.aar file should be put.
- help with publishing 9.0a2
- try to finish #28672 (Android reproducible build of Snowflake)
- look at remaining failing testsuite tests
- update patch for #30549 (Add script to remove expired sub-keys
from a keyring file) after review
- Rebased onion security expectation patch to ESR68 (#30429).
- Found out some things preventing tbb-tests/mochitests from
being run in ESR68 branch.
- Some torbutton refactor work.
- Pushed patch to
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=467035, but changes will be
- Built rebased ESR68 with GeKo's linux_esr68_v6
- More #30429 work (patches remaining, find out why themes
extensions are not installed...)
- Fix patch for 467035.
- torbutton cleanup/refactor/integration work (#28745, #10760)
- fixed macos icons for #30631 (blurry tor browser icons in
- finished rebasing widl changes into a digestable patch chain,
submitted to wine-devel dev list for review
- squashed widl changes into a patch for mingw and put up a
patch for tor-browser-build
- changes cause crash on 64-bit windows (both 64-bit tor browser
and 32-bit tor browser runing WoW which is surprising)
- got my functional ia2 test working on 64 bit windows
- initial investigation here indicates likely another
typeformat string issue (the generated code that's used to determine
data marshalling logic at runtime)
- replicate my debug environment in 64-bit and fix this 64 bit issue
- update tor-browser-build patch
tjr (very little)
- Planning for Whistler
- Confirmed we still have an x86 crash in mingw-clang (Bug 1547519)
after glandium's work.
