Review of Firefox desktop automation work – Q1 2016

Firefox Automation report – Q2 2015

It’s been a while since I wrote my last Firefox automation report, so lets do another one to wrap up everything happened in Q2 this year.

Highlights In our Mozmill-CI environment we had a couple of frozen Windows machines, which were running with 100% CPU load and 0MB of memory used.

Henrik checked the affected machines after a reboot, and none of them had any suspicious entries in the event viewer either. But he noticed that most of our VMsContinue readingFirefox Automation report – week 45/46 2014
