10:39petrohei, when I try to build mozilla-central I get an error regarding llvm_config, even though I installed the package and set the environment variable/ $PATH properly..I have uploaded the output here : https://pastebin.mozilla.org/9029460
11:14tigerHi! I would like to contribute to open source. But I am a newbie. I know C, C++ and python. Can anyone suggest few beginner projects that I can work on.

18:19amphibulusHi, I am pvk.
18:19jdmhello
18:19amphibulusI would like to contribute to firefox code base. To get started I downloaded the source, build it.
18:19amphibulusI thought bugs are good place to get started and found this "good-first-bug" https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1360457.
18:20firebotBug 1360457 NEW, nobody@mozilla.org Network monitor columns are shifted
18:20amphibulusThe entire mozilla source is bit overwhelming, I am not sure where to look in the code. Any help would be appreciated.
18:20jdmamphibulus: good start!
18:20amphibulusAlso should I inform someone before I get started. Any input whould be great.
18:20jdmamphibulus: you may want to check with the folks in #devtools about that one
18:21amphibulusThanks jdm.!
18:21jdmamphibulus: however, the code likely exists under devtools/client
18:22jdmamphibulus: in general, it's good to leave a comment in the bug saying that you're starting to work on it
18:22amphibulusAh I see, Thanks
18:22jdmamphibulus: devtools/client/netmonitor exists, and even contains a README.md that looks useful
18:23jdmwow, that's way more useful than most of the documentation that exists for mozilla-central ;)
18:25amphibulusIt is indeed :)
20:00mib_if3kb2is there a way to programmatically detect if a page was redirected to about:certerror? I see that nsIWebProgressListener can detect internal error pages, but i just want about:certerror
21:24tatlacasHi everyone, is there a simple "hello world" example exercise i can do to start customizing firefox. something simple as opening a tab
