UX design

  • working on A2-related items (esp. weave-integration, find-in-page, context menus)
  • starting in on seeing how the design works with a smaller, squarer screen
  • if you open a bug that needs some UI/UX attention, use the "uiwanted" keyword -- I'm watching for those


  • Use larger canvas for panning (bug 450816) [gavin]
    • had a patch a while ago, has since been bitrotted by other panning changes
    • pretty complicated since it changes a lot of invariants that the panning code depends on

    • haven't made progress since last week, want to close outstanding bugs this week

    • need to address mfinkle's l10n review comments, otherwise done

    • looked into it a bit this weekend, going to work on a patch that supports scrolling subframes (also affects e.g. iframes)
  • spatialnav panning (bug 452274) [gavin]
    • have patch, need to sort out issue with underlying <browser>/canvas not being the right size by default
  • kinetic scrolling fixup (bug 455453) [blassey]
    • going to finish reviewing that patch today [gavin]
  • Soft keyboard support
  • some UI work in progress [mfinkle]:
    • Add ability to close tabs (bug 454667)
    • Difficult to "close" strips (bug 454978)

      • Effects us having a checkerboard pattern for missing areas
    • bug 450916 Moving a canvas around in a stack is slow
      • We need this fixed so we can remove the sync repaints

  • OOM
  • Talos (done) needs to be handed off to build.
  • Mochitest (bug 454613)



  • Working on Reducing the Mochitest Failures
    • Some issues failing Mochitests are:
    • Looked at the differences between Windows and Ubuntu desktop mochitest runs

This week we will focus on getting these bugs above confirmed, and continuing triage into the issues that are blocking a full mochitest run.

Also this week, we'll attempt a mochitest run on the n800 itself as well to see how things stand there.
