    • Bug 689106 – Video controls have disappeared on standalone HTML5 videos. I hope that this gets fixed since bug 472942 (VideoDocuemnts should center video in tab) landed last week and it makes the viewing experience of HTML5 videos look pretty.
    • Did some reading on wrappedJSObject, XPConnect, and CustomEvents for bug 669260.
    • Updated the Media Controls Refresh wiki page with the current status.
    • Learnt how to use hg bisect to determine the changeset that caused the bug 689106 regression.
  • In progress
    • Bug 669260 – Updated patch based on review
    • Bug 666306 – Updated patch based on review

Up next:

  • Next week I hope to get review feedback on my patches as well as figure out our solution to bug 689106 (which will need to be upstreamed to Aurora).
  • Begin work on porting some of the new video control features to our touch-UI (the control changes that make sense to port).
