::dao I see you are the owner of bug 1367630. Can you look over this regression?
Flags: needinfo?(dao+bmo)
There's no way bug 1367630 can cause this regression.  This test is testing low-level string behavior in gtest.  Bug 1367630 changes the Firefox UI.  The Firefore UI is not even running during this test.

So if there's a regression here, its being blamed on the wrong push.
Flags: needinfo?(dao+bmo) → needinfo?(ionut.goldan)
Looking at the numbers there, it almost looks like something mixed up the nightly and devedition numbers to me...
Component: Untriaged → Tabbed Browser
Again, there is no way a "tabbed browser" change could affect this test.

:bz Thanks for your insights. Will close this as INVALID, due to unreliability of the test on Linux platforms.
