Revision Content

By default, a release build of Firefox will not generate debug symbols suitable for debugging or post-processing into the breakpad symbol format. Use the following mozconfig settings to do a build with symbols:

On Windows

export MOZ_DEBUG_SYMBOLS=1
ac_add_options --enable-debugger-info-modules=all

Note that a typical release build will have additional options such as --enable-static. See {{template.Source("tools/tinderbox-configs/firefox/win32/mozconfig")}} for the configuration used for nightly builds.

On Mac

ac_add_options --enable-optimize='-O2 -g'

On Linux

ac_add_options ac_add_options --enable-optimize='-Os -freorder-blocks -fno-reorder-functions -gstabs+'

After the build

After the build is complete, run the following command to generate an archive of breakpad symbol files:

make -C objdir buildsymbols

The tinderbox uses an additional uploadsymbols target to upload symbols to a socorro server. See {{template.Source("toolkit/airbag/tools/upload_symbols.sh")}} for more information about the environment variables used by this target.
