- Brian Birtles has a strange issue that he can reproduce only on
JapaneseWindows with Firefox. We tried on 3 different windows, and it reproduces. But it doesn't reproduce on Windows for Sergiu.
- Another issue related to user agent sniffing, which has a bad consequence for the code.
- Strange behavior of an anchor, followup the issue and discussion on bugzilla.
- Known issue about
- Google Docs graph in
canvasdoes not have the right resolution. The weird thing is that Firefox seems to return an incoherent value for the device to pixel ratio.
- Flexbox issue.
flex-basis: 100%doesn't resolve the same way in Firefox and Chrome. Usually you are on the safer side, if you use
flex-basis: autoinstead. Another site, same issue with the addition of using the first webkit version of Flexbox. Basically this site would be falling apart if it was not for the implementation of
-webkit-prefixes for flexbox. Sad panda.
- I haven't cracked down this one yet. The site deviantart is displaying the wrong contextual menu on double click.
- On minecraft website, there is an infinite resize of the canvas. and it's growing, growing, growing.
We decided to try to tackle the pile of issues which needed contacts. Before we had dedicated persons: Adam and myself. But we now kind of switched roles. So without daily love, the piles of needscontact (we need to find a contact) and contactready (we need to actually contact) tends to grow. So this week, I made a special effort specifically on the contactready list. One of my axioms for Webcompat:
If you wait long enough, a bug goes away.
Indeed. The site disappears, has been redesigned, the libraries have been changed. With Adam, we had determined that if we were doing the full process quickly, we had more chances to catch bugs and solve issues for users. Reality and the volume of incoming bugs make this difficult.
Fixing the Web requires a dedicated will from the whole industry to change its practices. Web compatibility issues share some of the aspects of the climate change (except no mass extinction if the Web disappears).
This outreach week was a mixed bag of not valid anymore bugs and still ongoing issues. Once contacted, it doesn't mean the issue will be fixed. Note that this process is open to everyone. If you want to help, you are more than welcome.
- A bit of code review. I'm getting rusty.
- One week to wrap up the 2019Q4 projects. And to add to my misery of 2 weeks ago, I completely missed the meeting last Tuesday. Not in my calendar, but still a complete slip of mind. I'm glad holidays are coming soon. I probably need a good time resting.
- Berlin Mozilla All Hands is approaching.
- Sonia Singla is joining the team during a couple of months to work on UX stuff. She's joining in the context of outreachy.
- It's very cool to see Kate and Guillaume practically handling the webcompat dashboards by themselves on a week to week basis. They do an awesome job. I have a lot of respect for them and their dedicated attention to details. Plus each time, I had to meet them face to face, it was a lovely time. I know that Kate might be looking for a (remote) job. She is in Italy. Give her a chance. She was previously an outreachy.
