Reviewer: Sponsor:


In the marionette tests that we run from the testsuite, we are running the browser with strace in order to check the system calls and detect possible files created outside the browser directory, and direct network connections.

When running the testsuite on an esr60 based Tor Browser, the browser window does not open and an strace process takes a lot of cpu, until we get the following timeout error:

Disabling the use of strace is fixing the issue.
