Description

a year ago
We plan to run a Funnelcake experiment (bug 1309847 and bug 1309847) in Firefox 54, comparing win64 and wow64 user metrics. If everything looks good, we will then roll out the 64-bit installer default for Win64 OS users in Firefox 55.

So, I have a question.  Is this an issue with Win-64 or an issue that WIn-64 builds have windowless plugins disabled?  If it is the latter it would be better in trying to triage issues if it were set to block the correct bug.

I'm not sure I understand your question, but this meta bug tracks issues that prevent us from making Win64 Firefox the default for users on Win64 OS. Flash bug 1348629 is either a bug in our 64-bit NPAPI sandbox or when we force Flash async drawing. Regardless, we need 64-bit Flash to work as well as 32-bit Flash before we can make Win64 Firefox the default.

MY question was is this a it does not work at all under wing64 or is it a thing that does not work under win64 with the default win64 does not permit windowless flash (which win32 does) if so it should be more sensible in trying to triage bugs to make this dependent on the mkae windowless flash work under win64 than having it be dependent here.  Just trying to help here.

Just trying to figure out if wee can get the dependent bugs here to follow a tree rather than just having them all be on this one.

We don't know if bug 1348629 is win64-specific yet.

I find a deep bug tree more difficult to use because the Bugzilla does not support recursive queries and if an intermediate bug is closed, then all its children are orphaned and don't show up Bugzilla bug tree view.

A deeper bug tree would not allow me to show the tidy list of Win64 blocking bugs on the Win64 project wiki: 

https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Win64#Bugs
That is find I just thought treeing the issues would make it easier to figure out what needed to be worked on.  If it does not, I am fine with that.
My feeling was sort of if there are 5 issues that are all dependent on one thing then maybe fixing that would fix all five.  If you feel that kind of info is not useull then go forth and try to fix.

Looks like it is down to 12 bugs left blocking this. I wish Firefox people could pool resources, and tackle different bug groups all in one swoop, to work on problem areas like this; instead of everybody off doing their own thing. If that is happening, is it documented anywhere? Thanks.

We're actively working on these 64-bit bugs. The following wiki has our schedule for rolling out 64-bit to more users this year:
