So…

Working on some projects here at Mozilla:
I’m working on Fennec, Firefox for mobile.
With the project, I’ve started to concentrate on memory issues and crashing issues.
(IMO) Since memory is a resource that’s very important on a mobile device, whether it be a tablet or a phone, it would be good to get the usage down as much as possible.
I welcome any help that anyone could provide in regards to doing this. Here’s some avenues you can pursue in getting this done

1: Join the memshrink channel on irc.mozilla.org
2: attend the https://wiki.mozilla.org/Performance/MemShrink
in the last meeting : http://blog.mozilla.com/nnethercote/2011/08/17/memshrink-progress-week-9/

One of the things is also tackling the problems we currently have within Firefox:
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Performance/MemShrink/Ideas

Getting the right data is one of the hardest things to do it seems, and it would be helpful if anyone has any ideas about this.

As far as crashing goes, I’ve been attending :
https://wiki.mozilla.org/CrashKill
and the #crashkill channel on irc.mozilla.org

With the information that I get from this meeting and the socorro team (http://crash-stats.mozilla.com)
I have a weekly crash report that I’ve started running :
