As suggested in 860818 Pinterest is a top-ranked website in launch countries (e.g. Brazil) and so is and other sites that cause OOM and have been reported as bugs which we were asked to remove from our index.

The action of blacklisting an app for FxOS is technically straight forward, but the content portfolio effects it has on the launch is far beyond technical, it's quite unfitting to not have all of these top sites. 
In addition to that, these sites will crash the Firefox browser on the device as well, so it's enough that a user simply types in the address (which makes sense given the top brands that are affected).

I think the discussion should be about how this can be remedied on a lower level, or we'll end up blacklisting a big chunk of highly ranked and rich web applications.

Ran any news about this ?

Talked with CJ who is a platform team manager, in short term, we don't have solution to remedy it on a low level. We strongly suggest to remove this from for now.
Daniel, can you provide your thoughts on this?

While everyone would like to have Pinterest in by default, it seems not reasonable to do so if it OOM crashed 85% of the time (

Once the underlying platform problem is fixed, we can re-enable the site.

Note, there's activity that will improve this in bug 862970 (tef+).

Given it's likely we'll land bug 862970, should we tef- this bug?

Lets tef-, we can reconsider if the other bug fails to deliver.

Actually, let me put qawanted instead as well. If bug 860818 ends up looking okay with the locked images patch, then we can close this as invalid.

Bug 860818 was not fixed with bug 862970. 
Pinterest still crashes if scrolled too quickly using the app, as well as in browser. 
Checked on the master build 

Build ID: 20130429031045

I said the following on bug 860818:

> FWIW, on my unagi running a v1.0.1 build from earlier today (gecko
> fd004d7126, gaia cf2d4136f), I can't reproduce the crash with scrolling in
> either the browser or pinterest.  And I can load and
> the browser (or app) doesn't get killed or crash.
I was able to reproduce the original bug on b2g18 on today's build. Let me run a comparison against what Andrew said on 1.01 on partner builds.
Analysis for triage is described over in:

Based on what I'm seeing here, bug 862970 doesn't help make the problem better or worse.
Based on bug 867264 I'd suggest we do not block on this one.

Not blocking based on comment 14 and comment 11 as well
blocking-b2g: tef? → -

If we aren't blocking on this, then there's no longer value to implement this.
