Right now, if you try to add a smart collection and there's a delayed load, the user just sees a black screen.   No throbber, no loading message, just a black screen.   We need some kind of placeholder performance bar or page that gives the user a better performance perception than just a black screen.

See screencast:  http://youtu.be/1i-ECpzBlVE

Also, logcat attached.

1) install 2.0 aurora on Flame (20140624000201)

BuildID   20140624000201
Version   32.0a2

2) on homescreen, long tap and click "Add smart collections"
3) when the list appears, pick one category to add (ie. Sports)
4) Verify a black screen appears while the page is loading, with no performance indication or progress bar.

- some sort of perceptive loading page to indicate the user to wait , it's loading

- just a black screen, making it feel weird.

Flagging Rob but my initial response is to say that this should follow the established pattern (spinner).

Some notes here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1028452#c22

I feel that we should re-measure this once we solve the geolocation issue in bug 1028452 - it might just fix this, or make it a lot better.

Pull Request - Show spinner when loading new collections

I think we can probably do better, but a more comprehensive fix for 2.0 can bring a lot of risk. I think we should land this for now as it least gives the user some progress indicator.

I'm also going to upload a screenshot and ask for ui-review? to see if this is acceptable for 2.0.

Spinner during create

Jacqueline - here is a screenshot of the treatment we now apply after selecting a collection to create. It is the same spinner as when you are entering the create collection screen, before we load the list of suggested collections.

We are unfortunately unable to change the text of the dialog at this time due to the string freeze. Do you think this is an acceptable approach for 2.0?

Gaia-try seemed to not want to run for some reason, but I am verifying all tests locally and this one is simple so landing: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/commit/4eea9b9fb0adac7573a2d7afa5e12cb33d952573

I think this screen will work fine for 2.0.
