Yes. I had posted earlier to say that I was seeing this and was just about to file a bug myself!
Isn't that an older issue ?


It may well be actually, perhaps it should be a dupe of the older issue but I think it's fallout from the tab browsing checkins that took place earlier.

My bad, this is a new regression.The bug is rather vague about the regressiontime so i'll try to check it when i'm home

I'm currently using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050607 Firefox/1.0+ ID:2005060722 and this behaviour seems to consistently occur.

I know its bleeding edge, and its fun, but it came as a surprize, at least to me, that a well known extension being added to the core code would break so many things, when Mini-T has co-habited with other Tab Enhancement extensions for some time now.

Well, miniT uses a chrome JavaScript solution, Mike's patch goes for an XBL binding approach (probably the better way of doing it) which makes this available to anyone implementing a tabbed interface, should they want it. That's probably why it's clashing.
XBL is often the better way, but if I would've implemented this in XBL it wouldn't have been able to work with other (XBL based) extensions and possibly some themes.

The problems arising now are mostly due the fact that the same code behaves differently depending from where it is called. Bug 297005, for example, shouldn't happen in miniT as in this case my check would fail (or never be reached) and the application would fall back to the <tabbrowser>s onDrop.

Also the patch didn't include some code which existed to make some extensions still works without the need to support miniT directly (like the .ordinal to ._tPos or .mPanelContainer.selectedIndex to .mTabContainer.selectedIndex wrappers).

Heh... don't get me wrong, this wasn't a critisism of your work, just an observation that if it's being implemented in the core, XBL would be the way to go.

Thanks for clearing the other stuff up :)

If I drag a link to the tab-bar it creates 2 tabs.. Or do I not understand how this is supposed to work.

WFM, and if it doesn't, it sure wasn't my patch that broke it. If you can pinpoint the cause of the regression, file a new bug that depends on Bug 179656 - the likley culprit. Sounds extension related to me, though (and disabling might not be sufficient - try a clean profile to check).


Just tried a 'virgin' profile and it works as expected. No duplicate tabs, so must TabMix related.
Reported it to the dev's of TabMix Plus.

thanks

Prometheus and Atlantis are only doing builds. Pacifica is building and doing performance testing on those builds. (page load, xulwinopen, and startup). I'm wondering if they are planning on moving the memory testing being done by balsa to prometheus. (refcnt_leaks, trace_malloc_leaks, trace_malloc_maxheap, and trace_malloc_allocs)

Also for the address bar problems:
backing out bug 169826 (Port patch from bug 164006 to Firefox (wyciwyg: in tab titles)) as it caused bug 297037 / 297047

This was done after the 08 nightly which is now building AFAIK.
