Bug fixes:

Fixed a crash when editing files on Office 365 websites (bug 1579858)

Fixed detection of the Windows 10 Parental Controls feature being enabled (bug 1584613)

Fixed a Linux-only crash when changing the playback speed while watching YouTube videos (bug 1582222)

Reading the first of those (long!) I get the impression it only affects windows 10.

For the linux-only crash https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1582222 the description says:

Steps to reproduce:

    open fresh Firefox profile
    load https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKsQsxubuAA
    wait when page fully loads
    click on player and then immediately tap three times on Shift+>

If nothing unexpected happens for 5 seconds, tap left arrow key to rewind to beginning.

If still nothing, try from beginning few more times.

Actual results:
I cannot reproduce this 100% of the time, but:

    there may be small freeze when cube rotates and then:
    tab crash after up to 5 seconds (when cube rotates); OR
    tab crash just after rewinding to the start
    no crash dump in about:crashes
    no info in browser console
    no info in shell console (besides of info about connection with sub process lost unexpectedly)

Expected results:

Nothing should crash, video plays with increased speed.

This happens on random videos.

I think the key is actually the cursor right key, with shift, not '>'. Will retest in a moment. No, reading further down:

  1. visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RiwQWqZQf8
  2. click on video to play
  3. shift+> three times to get 1.75x
  4. alt+d to focus address bar
  5. press Enter to reload
  6. crashed (or click play on the video to start playing which then will insta crash)

NB for me, Alt+d doesn't move focus to the address bar.

And I cannot get it to crash (this is on 69.0 on a system which has been out of use).

Since I cannot replicate the linux-specific crash (the bug report suggests it can be hard to trigger, possibly with the binary releases one of the linked libraries might be older than what we are using and affect this), I'm inclined to leave this as WONTFIX - particularly now that I plan to move to firefox-esr for 68.2.0 rather than to 70.0.

If someone is affected by the office365 issue, or can replicate the crash, feel free to take the ticket.

Just a note that the 69 patch for system graphite2 and harfbuzz applies, and it builds with rustc-1.37.0 : I assume that currnet rustc-1.35.0 will also build it.

Replying to renodr:

I successfully built 69.0.3 with rustc 1.37.0, I can update the page if desired.

If you wish - the changes in 69.0.3 are for windows and yahoo mail users.

Please note that I still intend to move to 68-esr on the next release.

In that case I better leave it, also as the book is not on rustc 1.37.0 yet, and I only built with that. 69.0.3 might actually not build with rustc 1.35.0, and I'm not gonna try...

Resolution: overcomebyevents
Status: newclosed

Closing, 68.2.0esr (and 70.0) are expected next week. I'll attempt to keep track of the changes in the latest versions, but with a much lower priority than in the past. So, if anyone intends to keep using the latest versions rather than esr, and has problems, please ask on the lists.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
