We had a Web compat meeting this week and we welcomed a new team member: Dennis Schubert.
(a selection of some of the bugs worked on this week).
- WebKit css for hiding/showing the menu bar on a responsive layout, it will be solved on Firefox 49
- Almost every week, we are adding issues to the HLS/M3U8 bug. That's the top report we currently get on webcompat.
- Yet another example that any hacks will break in the future. On this bug, the links are not working in Firefox. A strange rule
x:-moz-any-link, x:defaultwas applied to the CSS. This was ignored by other browsers. It seems it is a Firefox 3.0 hack which is widely distributed through sites like CSS Tricks. They also do strange things when using
- WebP support in mod_pagespeed is full of user agent sniffing. I followed the trail of different updates. And because this specific Web site probably relies on an older version of
mod_pagespeedit breaks in Firefox Android. The irony is that it will probably break in the future if finally WebP is supported by Gecko.
- Some outreach contact leads are very hard to find. If you know someone working for SMASH or FujiRock festival, please tell me.
- We have a recurring issue with a newsletter/sweepstake web site. I haven't nailed down what was happening.
- A good first bug for people who want to start contributing to webcompat. Our images in markdown lists are broken :)
- A full review of our issue page so we can improve a bit its readability.
- Firefox 48 release notes and more specifically the developer release notes
- Opera 39/Chrome 52 release notes
- AMP again and market domination
- calc hacks are lovely
