Remove or update probes expiring in Firefox 95: pictureinpicture.*

(Whiteboard: [probe-expiry-alert])


(2 files)

The following Firefox probes will expire in the next major Firefox nightly release: version 95 [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 #data-help Slack channel or the #telemetry Matrix room at We'll give you a hand.

Mike, flagging you for needinfo since you most recently touched this probe in Events.yaml.

Flags: needinfo?(mconley)

Hey rtestard, these probes are (I believe) the primary probes we use to measure PiP usage. Do we want to renew them?

Flags: needinfo?(mconley) → needinfo?(rtestard)

Yes, PiP is a core feature that we should track use of. Could we make these permanent probes?

Flags: needinfo?(rtestard)

Yep, will do.

Data collection renewal

  1. Is the provided Data Collection Review complete, correct, and data-review+ by a Data Steward?

  2. Is the data collection covered by the existing Firefox Privacy Notice?

data-review +

Changing severity to N/A because this has no direct impact to users, since it's just telemetry stuff.
