Description Benoit Girard (:BenWa) 2013-04-18 14:53:03 PDT
This bug tracks the work required to be able to install a fennec nightly APK in a locked phone and dump profiles that include full native C++ stack via native unwinding that reach back to XRE_Main the majority of the time.
Comment 1 Jim Chen [:jchen] [:darchons] 2013-04-18 19:31:42 PDT
We can also use this to include C++ stacks in ANR reports.
Comment 2 Benoit Girard (:BenWa) 2013-04-18 20:04:35 PDT
I'd rather not make this increase the scope further then it already is. I hope to expose our unwinding features via bug 809317 which would provide the useful unwind possible. Can you file another bug to discuss that?

Yeah of course. Comment 1 was just a general comment about the usefulness of having unwinding in Fennec.
