Description

4 years ago
I created a FxA on my Nexus 5 (fennec instance). I then signed-in to my desktop for the first time to attach it to the same FxA. Upon first sync, my Fennec thumbnails were replaced by my higher-frecency desktop thumbnails.

This shouldn't happen. Of course my desktop will be more heavily used with a certain set of use cases (ie work). This shouldn't corrupt my mobile experience where I use browsing mainly for recreation / non-business stuff. 

I thought we had talked about preserving the thumbnails based on Firefox instance instead of replacing them?

I don't know who owns this area or what flag or component to use, so I have just started here hoping it will get to the right spot for discussion.
This is something I neglected to spin out from Bug 1003608 Comment 3, so thanks for filing, Karen!

See also Bug 934030.

The core issue here is that Top Sites can't/doesn't distinguish between history created on this device versus elsewhere. The data simply isn't in the database.

That means that Sync from a desktop will typically stomp all over your mobile habits.

We can't really fix Sync to track per-device history, but we can fix our local data, which will be fine 95% of the time.

This will involve a small schema change, some work either in BrowserProvider or in Sync to make sure the right kinds of counts are changed, and a tweak to the Top Sites algorithm to match whatever expectations we have.

Comment 3

3 years ago
Does P5 mean that in reality it will never happen? It often does in my engineering groups. Just wondering. I assume you guys don't want Top Sites on Fennec to not reflect what you really visit on your phone, quite different than desktop browsing history. I would point out I have never noticed Top Sites on my Fennec reflecting anything except my Fennec top sites.
No, it's an indication that we should triage this at some point.
Priority: P5 → --
Bug 1157553 Comment 6 has some relevant thinking.
Work:

* Schema changes and migration in BrowserProvider.
* Logic changes to frecency. See Firefox for iOS.
* Top sites adjustments to match. Perhaps domain grouping.
* Adjusting Sync to write visits into Fennec correctly and upload local visits.
* Migrating the existing Sync visits system.
* Tests.

Richard, where does Sync write into the history database?

(In reply to Michael Comella (:mcomella) from comment #7)

> Can you point me to the algorithm on iOS?

https://github.com/mozilla/firefox-ios/blob/master/Storage/SQL/SQLiteHistory.swift#L360

The main differences here versus Android:

* Visits are stored in a separate table and joined into history.
* We calculate frecency by looking separately at your local and remote visits, dramatically upweighting the local ones.
* We group results by domain, so it's more complicated.

We plan to revisit this in the next few months to pre-calculate part or all of the frecency score and introduce some more concepts from desktop, such as using the visit types to contribute differing amounts to the frecency calculation:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Tech/Places/Frecency_algorithm


Something else you'll care about is how we track duplicate visits:

https://github.com/mozilla/firefox-ios/blob/master/Storage/SQL/SQLiteHistory.swift#L595

The Sync record format doesn't uniquely identify visits, nor can it express deletion, so we have to be careful to make visits collide when possible.
Flags: needinfo?(rnewman)
I figured it was worth outlining some more concrete steps here.

1. (a) Define a visits table in the main browser DB. Begin tracking local visits with a visit type and a timestamp using this table. You'll need to touch recording visits, frecency queries, clearing of history, and just about everything else in LocalBrowserDB.

Note that you won't need to track changes or deletion per-visit: Sync always uploads all of the visits for a history record when it changes. You will need to mark the history item as modified when you add a visit.

At this point browsing should work but Sync won't -- we haven't yet addressed how to merge incoming visits.

You can land this in a branch, or keep rebasing the patch. (I don't recommend landing this towards the end of a cycle, because you will need to do performance work.)


1.5. Visit count -> visit. You'll need to _synthesize_ visits from Fennec's existing visit counts as part of migration. Sync has some code to do this as part of the extender. If Sync isn't set up you can mark all of these visits as local; otherwise, you have little choice but to guess.


2. Migrate visits from Sync into the visits table. This is what we were discussing tonight. We already have JSON blobs in the extension DB for users who have a Sync account and are syncing history; we'll want to parse these out and insert them all as remote visits.

Once this is done, again, Sync won't work, but we'll be a step closer. You can drop the history extension DB at this point.


3. Sync. Now we need to shift the visit insertion/merging logic out of Sync's extender into Fennec. The iOS codebase has a lot of this logic built into the SQL layer (INSERT OR IGNORE); I suggest you use it. You'll reach a point where you can insert a history record and all of its visits and have the right thing happen, with local visits remaining local and new remote visits being inserted.

Once this is done, Sync will be working again.


4. Performance. At this point you might find that top sites calculations are too slow with large volumes of data (18,000 history items and 36,000 visits, as my iOS profile has). We can't regress too much, so you'll have a choice:

(a) Keep the existing frecency algorithm, and materialize the visit counts that it needs. This gets us parity with the existing implementation but with individual visits, with a small UPDATE cost on visit insertion. We can generalize to local versus remote later.

(b) Extend the existing frecency algorithm to match desktop, complete with materialized scores. This would put Android a step ahead of iOS, and buys us both accuracy and performance, but it's more work.

(c) Cache top sites, just as we do on iOS: Bug 1211984.


5. Top Sites. Once we have the data we need, you can start to improve the top sites query to use local-aware frecency. You laid the groundwork for this in (1) and (4), and you can use iOS as some inspiration.

Note that desktop and iOS both coalesce history items into domain tiles (Bug 1184582). Doing so is *another* extension, so I suggest punting this to a follow-up bug if you choose to take this step.

Maybe you can talk to rnewman about this next week when we're all together in SF. I think it would be good to make forward progress on this so that we can address the outstanding issue of desktop sites overwhelming your top sites after you set up sync on a new profile.

My apologies for the mess that is the commit history here, but the squashed diff isn't too bad to look at. The work so far covers local visit tracking and sync.
As far as I can tell, other than potential cleanup and whatever might arise from feedback, work that is still left is: better testing of this stuff (right now it's kind of a lip service...), and the top sites calculations.

Another thing is history deletions. Due to "delete cascaded" visits will be removed, but not right away - iirc, history records are first "cleaned up" (leaving only guid intact, as setting the deleted flag), and are only actually deleted in batches once they've been marked as deleted for about 20 days. I imagine this time buffer exists for sync's sake?

Leanest solution would be to manually remove visit records (by guid) for now.

Some background:

Sync's current history object format[0] doesn't have a way to model deleted history visits.

That is: once a visit has escaped into the wild (synced to the server and down to another device) it can only be removed from other clients by deleting the history for a URL in its entirety by uploading a deleted=true record.

That's why we don't track deletion of individual visits, even though some Firefoxes support fine-grained clearing of history (desktop's "forget" feature). We track deletion of history items as a whole.

We do need to be able to sync deleted history items, and so that's why we keep the sentinels in the database for a while. Sync will clean them up after they're uploaded, or they'll expire if you don't have Sync configured. (It's easier than finding out if you're using Sync.)


> Leanest solution would be to manually remove visit records (by guid) for now.

Yes. There might be _a lot_ of visits in the database after a deletion: consider the case of Clear History. When we mark a history item as deleted, we should delete all of its visits. When we mark all history items as deleted, we should drop all of the related visits.

Pass 1 down.  The significant points:

1) reworking patch series to read linearly.

2) lifting visit insertion to the domain layer, so that the SQL layer is "pure".

3) ensuring that History.VISITS is always COUNT(Visits.GUID, ...) as appropriate.  (No need to use the count in this patch series.)

4) Moving tests to unit tests, for simplicity and speed.

Great patch series, Grisha!

Specifically test removing a History GUID, and observing that the record is marked DELETED and the visits are purged.

Verify that visiting a History GUID that is DELETED marks the GUID not deleted (?) and adds a new visit.

Better to lift visit insertion to the domain layer, not the SQL layer.  I'd like to write SQL unit tests that would replace/update without inserting additional records.

A little investigation revealed `mUpdateHistoryUriWithProfile`, which is exactly when we want to insert a new Visit record.

grisha and I discussed this; pursuant to the comment about SQL level vs. domain level, we expect this to be simpler because there will only be inserting a visit for a known history item.

Let's keep this.  We'd like to get to a world with a complete client set attached to all visits; in this world, it doesn't make sense to attach unknown clients to history visits.  Let's wipe them if they're not local.

There's a test that needs to be written here to ensure that content reconciled history records get the right (the union of the?) history visits.

That is, if {guid1, url} and {guid2, url} are both seen, we want to write {guid2, url, union of visits}.

We need to make sure here that VISITS is correct.

This might look like another patch to replace History.VISITS with a count from the Visits table.  This leads naturally into splitting the awesomebar search into local and remote parts :)

It's worth noting in the docstring that we're merging sets, and that we can't make any assumptions about incoming visit timestamps being monotonically increasing, or any assumptionsa bout incoming visit timestamps being larger (or smaller) than locally collected visits.  (Sync devices can come and go with visit timestamps from different "eras".)

Let's try to `bulkInsert` here, ignoring conflicts.  This might require making `(GUID, DATE)` unique.

Well worth unit testing this method in isolation to ensure we ignore, add, etc.

I find it very surprising that you `insert` with no timestamp conversion, but you `update` with a timestamp conversion.

Why is this not symmetric?

Wait, we fully expect this to happen in the future, right?  I.e., this only doesn't happen now because Sync doesn't try to sync the number of visits across devices, and each client keeps its own tally.

As we start to drop old visits, this will not be an error condition.

Hmm, it's for all URLs.  This looks like you slurp the entire system browser DB into memory.  Can we do this URL-by-URL to avoid that?

Memory concerns aside, perhaps follow suit and do `mDB.insertHistoryVisitsInBatch`?

Try to differentiate between "Sync" the product, capitalized, and the action "to sync" or "syncing", not capitalized.

Can you just use `INSERT OR IGNORE`, or find another solution to this? There might be ten thousand rows here, and running a query for each one might make this migration take minutes.

Another solution might be to use `PRAGMA defer_foreign_keys`, insert everything, then drop any visits that don't match history before committing the transaction.

You should load-test this migration!

You can't do this. You need to preserve microsecond timestamps for *upload*, and also to de-dupe on insertion. You should use microsecond timestamps for visits.

Reference: iOS does so.

Just use this instead of checking `getCount`. `getCount`, IIRC, is surprisingly expensive.

Just do these once outside the loop!

To doubly re-emphasize this: other clients rely on us preserving data. For example, Client A uploads a visit at 1460168511206123. You flatten it to milliseconds: 1460168511206. You add a local visit: 1460168511333. You now upload a record with two visits:

1460168511206000
1460168511333000

The remote client now thinks it has *three* visits, because yours has a different timestamp:

1460168511206123
1460168511206000
1460168511333000

Oops!

Gosh, I hope we correctly enable foreign key support on all supported Android versions.

(FKs aren't on by default.)

Please make sure this is covered by a test.

I don't think this is correct.

Processing a record like this:

```
  guid: "foo",
  lastModified: 12345,
  visits: []
```

should not result in any visits being inserted into the database. It's entirely valid for a history item to exist but have no _known_ visits.

MozReview Request: Bug 1046709 - Part 6: Remove remote visits when FxAccount is deleted r=nalexander,rnewman

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/42617/#review42029

Why do this at all?

What we used to do was leave the Fennec visit count intact, but clear up the space we were taking up with the extension table.

With your change we actually lose data -- we throw away your remote history.

That's a big change, and I think it's wrong.

MozReview Request: Bug 1046709 - Part 3: insert/remove visit record when user visits a page or removes history item(s) r=nalexander,rnewman

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/41177/#review42031

Don't run 4+ SQL queries over a ContentResolver every time the browser visits a page!

This is a really painful and ugly way to do this.

ContentProviders, and their over-engineered URI abstraction, exist to hide this kind of nonsense.

You're doing one roundtrip through the ContentResolver to get a GUID, then another to insert a visit, and separately we're calling `updateHistoryTitle`… which is yet another jump through hoops.

The right way to do this is for the front-end to tell the CP, at a particular contentURI: "I visited URL foobar.com/baz, with title ABC, at time 1234".

The CP is then responsible for:

* Creating a history row if one doesn't exist for that URL.
* Updating the title and bumping the modified time if a row did exist.
* Inserting a visit for the resulting GUID.
* … and anything else that we want to track when visits occur.

The caller here becomes a single stanza that doesn't need to concern itself with GUIDs.

The key to this is realizing that just because you call `cr.insert(...)` doesn't mean that a single SQL `INSERT` happens on the other end.

Storing visit timestamps in microseconds now, and doing millisecond->microsecond conversion at two places: inserting visit as by-product of history update (with INCREMENT_VISITS), and when importing visits from AndroidImport.

Is there a reason to have the DB track microseconds?  I feel like Sync is in the wrong here; millis is more than enough, and agrees with what Fennec does locally.

Perhaps trying to avoid multiple Sync visits mapping to the same milli is an issue?

We carefully ignore conflicts for one visit.  It's my belief that bulkInsert always ignores conflicts.  Can you confirm?  Is my understanding flawed?

Primarily: they need to round-trip, so we need to follow the finest granularity in use in the system. Otherwise we'll have visits breeding every time a URL is visited on two devices. I gave a concrete example of this to grisha directly.

Secondarily: we rely on uniqueness of visits by time. Millisecond is probably fine, but if we have microseconds -- and we do -- we should use them.

bulkInsert itself delegates to the CP's implementation; the CP can choose what to do, and conflict behavior isn't specified. In our case indeed we should ignore conflicts.

This is limited to SQLITE_MAX_VARIABLE_NUMBER, which defaults to 999. We use chunking helpers for this on iOS.

Converting from microseconds->milliseconds will end up with strange things happening (it's also way more work). I'll quote Richard:

"""
To doubly re-emphasize this: other clients rely on us preserving data. For example, Client A uploads a visit at 1460168511206123. You flatten it to milliseconds: 1460168511206. You add a local visit: 1460168511333. You now upload a record with two visits:

1460168511206000
1460168511333000

The remote client now thinks it has *three* visits, because yours has a different timestamp:

1460168511206123
1460168511206000
1460168511333000

Oops!
"""

> We carefully ignore conflicts for one visit.  It's my belief that bulkInsert always ignores conflicts.  Can you confirm?  Is my understanding flawed?

bulkInsert will end up running the same code as insert, but in batch, so insertVisit in this case. Which will end up doing insertWithOnConflict and setting CONFLICT_IGNORE.

> This is limited, I think to 1000 parameters.  Is there a helper to do this more generally?  Can you warn and not crash in case you saw more than 1000?

Added code to chunk delete statements, and tests that exercise this. For example, for 1200 GUIDs, it'll run two DELETE statements.

This issue was verified as fixed on the latest Aurora build (48.0a2  2016-04-28) with CLEAN profiles (both desktop and mobile) and a newly created sync account. 

By using an old sync account and an intense used desktop profile, the top sites on mobile were switched by the desktop ones. This issue was tried several times with the old desktop account that was synced over a fresh mobile account with the same result, top-sites form desktop replacing mobile remote visits.
 The same behavior can be observed on the latest Nightly build (49.0a1 2016-04-28)

Grisha, Margaret,Richard is this the desired behavior or should we call for a clearer separation approach when using old accounts?

This bug tracks the data layer work: recording and syncing local visits properly in a way that will allow for a better top sites experience. There is a Bug 1265525 to track changes to queries powering Top Sites (which will produce user-visible changes), and a meta Bug 1265516 to track this effort in its entirety.

It's expected that there aren't any user-noticeable changes resulting from this Bug landing - it's a foundation piece.

High level overview of things to be on a lookout while testing these changes:
1) Data migrations run correctly when first upgrading for multiple scenarios:
- sync was never set up, no browsing history. no-op
- sync was never set up, some browsing history. visits synthesized from history as local
- sync was setup then disabled. visits are synthesized from history as remote
- sync is enabled. visits are migrated from the old sync history database, ensuring we don't port over visits for non-existent history records ("orphan visits")
1.2) Migrating very old Sync accounts with tons of visits. Should perform "well enough".
2) Browsing websites records visits correctly (as local)
3) Sync works correctly with locally recorded visits; incoming history data is correctly merged in, marked as remote
4) Android Import functionality works (history import from Android browser on pre-6.0 devices)
5) Clear history clears out recorded visits correctly
6) History expiration deletes visits
7) Old HistoryExtensionsDB file is removed after the migration
8) Disabling Sync shouldn't affect visits table

To test these access to browser.db and HistoryExtensionsDB is needed, in order to run SQL queries to ensure data is in correct state.
