Mozilla Project – the fun has just started

Hi CS3108 buddies,

I have always wanted to participate in a open-source project for a long time. I think open-source softwares are what the world need in order to promote freedom in computing age.

Therefore I enrolled in CS3108 – Mozilla Project offered by SoC. To most people, this is a tough module (just look at the size of our class now, only 3 left). But to me, the fun has just started 🙂

The first thing I want to mention about this module is that we have Gary as our instructor. He is actually very nice, and he always offer help to others if he can. I remembered last week he spent an hour after class answering my curious questions. Somehow, we’re gonna be on our own soon *scary*

I’ve spent quite some time researching I/O interface of Firefox. Besides Bug 538015 which is still not confirmed as a bug, I plan on working on Bug 489091. At first I think will be an easy bug. But I have to research I/O interface, how to get the zoom value of a tab, how sessionstore.js are stored … The last one I still not figure out, couldn’t find any documentation on that. Anyway I do believe this will be the first bug I fix.

Next class starts in 30min … See CS3108 folks over there 🙂
