(2 files)

The following Firefox probes will expire in the next major Firefox nightly release: version 86 [1].


What to do about this:

  1. If one, some, or all of the metrics are no longer needed, please remove them from their definitions files (Histograms.json, Scalars.yaml, Events.yaml).
  2. If one, some, or all of the metrics are still required, please submit a Data Collection Review [2] and patch to extend their expiry. There is a shorter form for data collection renewal [3].

If you have any problems, please ask for help on the #fx-metrics Slack channel or the #telemetry Matrix room at We'll give you a hand.

Pretty sure we just wanna extend these.

Bug 1678202 - extend pictureinpicture telemetry probes to 92, r?mconley

Request for Data Collection Renewal

** This form is for the renewal of an existing, reviewed data collection.**

** All questions are mandatory.
You must receive Data Review from a
Data Steward
on a filled-out Request before shipping your renewed data collection.**

  1. Provide a link to the initial Data Collection Review Request for this collection.

  1. When will this collection now expire?

Firefox 92, June 2021.

  1. Why was the initial period of collection insufficient?

We've made a number of improvements to PiP and are continuing to do so for at least the rest of this quarter, so we'll want data to verify that those improve engagement and/or check how they impact specific bits of usage (e.g. how does multi-pip or corner snapping change whether/how people move their PiP windows).
