#5487 closed defect (fixed)

XUL modal dialogs are not supported

Reported by: kevinprt Owned by: erikos
Priority: blocker Milestone:
Component: browse-activity Version: Build 650
Keywords: Gmail Hotmail popups alerts review? Cc: tomeu, erikos, marco

Verified: no


Gmail has an alert if send button is pushed and subject line is empty. XO doesn't show the alert (popup), therefore it fails to send. The reason is not apparent to the user.

Similiar problem in hotmail when managing folders. Deleting a folder normally shows an alert, however it doesn't appear when using XO. Not apparent to user, so it doesn't delete folder.

If the missing popups are really alerts (javascript alert() or confirm()), then we need to first add support for modal alerts in sugar and then implement the required xpcom interface based on that.

A simpler workaround could be considered if needed, though.

Ouch, we need support for XUL dialogs. I guess it went lost in the popups handling refactoring.

Jim, I think it's important to get this for Update.1, there are a lot of cases where xulrunner is popping up dialogs. It should not be hard to fix.

  • Summary changed from Alerts (popups) don't show in Gmail and Hotmail, therefore prevents certain actions to XUL modal dialogs are not supported

  • Keywords review? added; Update.1? removed

Simple implementation, it's not perfect but it should work well enough for Update.1.

  • Blocking 5534 added

(In #5534) I'm reopening, because this should be verified independently of 5487. This is what the 'blocked by' field is for.
