UX design


  • bug 436083 Viewport meta tag
  • bug 451676 & bug 451677 fixed some problems found with UI
  • More clean up needed bug 451576, bug 451373 & bug 449517
    • We could add some elements as data members to remove some doc.getElementByID too
  • Need to determine how 3 zone panning (content, urlbar, side UIs) will all interact (see UX mockups for add-ons & downloads)
  • bug 406837 Soft keyboard support
    • patch attached to implement using IME
    • Focus issue with auto-complete pop-up

The work on the preferences window has been tedious but fairly steady. Have the UX guys started a mockup for it? I wonder how closely it matches the work done so far :) I intend to post a patch later today for you guys to look at (should have done so sooner.) — db48x 13:35, 25 August 2008 (UTC)
