in March I did the following things:

a) Mozilla related bugs

1) I worked on getting our deterministic build patches upstreamed (and
was successful!).[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

2) I put some effort to get my test for bug 751465 into the tree. But
while I am close I am now waiting for getting access to Mozilla
infrastructure to fix the remaining issues.[8]

3) I reviewed a patch that impacts Tor Browser based on ESR 31.[9]

b) TBB related bugs


-debugged Tor Browser hangs.[10]
-closed another instance of bug 9901.[11]
-helped with a bug regarding our upcoming DMG image.[12]
-spent some time looking at a potential DNS leak.[13]
-reviewed a patch for our remaining screen resizing issues.[14]
-investigated an issue with our Private Browsing Mode.[15]
-triaged a bunch of bugs.[16][17][18]
-filed a bug to investigate requestAnimationFrame().[19] It has a
potential for exciting timing attacks we must be aware of.
-built and tested Erinn's hardened Windows bundle.[20]
-found a new Tor Browser crash and some assertions we need to look
-started to investigate the SoftBound rabbit hole to protect against
buffer overflows.[23]
-explored a login issue with our Tor Browser which turned out to be a
problem with the resizing code: that login button is just not visible
with a maxWidth of 1000px :( .[24]

c) Misc.

I reviewed two papers.
