Development on Firefox for Android gets a boost as crash reporting goes live.
If you’re trying to work out bugs in a new application, automatic crash reports can be extremely helpful. It’s the kind of thing that could really come in handy if you were trying to polish off a mobile version of a web browser, for example. Not suprisingly, the team at Mozilla feels the same way.
In the latest nightly builds of Firefox for Android, crash reporting has been turned on. The mobile version uses the same Breakpad libraries Firefox has been using on the desktop since version 3.0.Mozilla developer Mark Finkle writes “If you decide to send a crash report to Mozilla, and we really hope you do, you can see your crash, and other crashes, at the Mozilla Crash Reports web site.”
