Home screen and status bar behave different after clicking 'home' button among versions


(Firefox OS Graveyard :: Gaia::System, defect)

Gonk (Firefox OS)
Not set


(b2g-v2.1 verified, b2g-v2.2 verified)

2.1 S4 (12sep)
Tracking Status
b2g-v2.1 --- verified
b2g-v2.2 --- verified

(1 file)


1) Scroll down a bit the vertical home screen
2) Pull down the utility try
3) The status bar is displayed
4) Click on 'home' button


The status bar is hidden and the home screen does nothing (from my point of view the behavior expected as user)


The status bar is not hidden but the home screen scrolls to search field

v2.2 (master)

The status bar is hidden and the home screen scrolls to search field

At least I could see it, if I am wrong please close the bug
or maybe the behavior expected is implemented on master (I have seen other OS and it behaves like FFOS 2.2)
Francis, can you take a look here?

Over to you, Rob.

Thanks, Cristian...

This is a gap in the specs due to some last minute changes in 2.1. But now that you've brought it to my attention, the first tap should close the utility tray and the second tap should return the user to the top of the home screen. (As you suspected.)

Flagging Gregor and Michael to assess feasibility at this stage.

The correct behavior for 2.2 is specified in comment 4. We will make it a non-blocking polish bug. If we get to it in time, let's request uplift to 2.1.

Thank you for taking this Christian!

It is really too bad we have to deal with a race condition between two system modules to handle this properly. I left some comments on github. I also think we really need an integration test for this functionality. Can you please add one?

Thinking about this more, we could have AppWindowManager only call homescreen.ensure() if UtilityTray is not shown. But that couples UtilityTray and AppWindowManager.

It's sad we need help on such a "simple" bug, but I think we need to call in the gatekeeper. Alive, can you take a look at this patch and advise the best approach here?

My idea would be implement UtilityTray.preInit() (listen home) and call it in utility_tray.js so we don't need to change statusbar.js

And please note this is an anti-pattern we need to correct in the future depnedency resolving work.

This issue is verified fixed on Flame 2.1 and 2.2.

Result: Status bar is shown on the utility tray. First tap on the home button closes the utility tray, and second tap scrolls up to the top of the screen.
