Created attachment 8858655 [details] [diff] [review]
feedconverter.diff

Testing the switch to ESR52 gives us now differences in the files in the jsloader directories which is breaking our deterministic builds. Attached is, as an example, a diff of two FeedConverter.js files generated on two different machines.

This worked fine in previous ESR releases.

Mike: do you have an idea what could have caused this regression? The toolchain did not change on our side.

Presumably something changed that makes the atoms order unstable. I don't think this is likely to be fixed, especially now that startup cache is not generated anymore (bug 1351071).

Okay, fair enough. We backported the patch for bug 1351071 which fixed the problem. That's fine for us and I guess this is a WONTFIX then.
