Description (last modified by boklm)

Since commit 74e8c6a9803cc778b73dfa08c23ab7c75bb40718, var/num_procs is not used anymore to select the number of parallel processes used to build firefox.

It seems we need to set the MOZ_PARALLEL_BUILD environment variable to select the number of processes ./mach build will use.

To fix that I think we could:

  • set MOZ_PARALLEL_BUILD to var/num_procs
  • change the default value of var/num_procs to be the number of available cores (which is the default behavior of ./mach build)
