Closed Bug 1095017 Opened 7 years ago Closed 7 years ago
Impossible to change the device name with the new in-content preferences
Filed with today's Nightly, but has been there for a while. Steps to reproduce: * Select Nightly -> Preferences, go to the Sync tab. * Change the device name * Close the preferences tab * Select Nightly -> Preferences, go to the Sync tab. Expected: Device name has changed Actual: Device name has not changed Changing via about:config works. Seems to be primarily a UI issue.
I seem to recall that Ryan (maybe Mark?) hit this recently.
Yeah Ryan hit it when I was standing next to him and I promised to file a bug :-)

This is because we pass the wrong param in sync.js .

Comment on attachment 8572619 [details] [diff] [review] pass the element instead of the pane object to gSyncUtils.changeName, Approval Request Comment [Feature/regressing bug #]: bug 1016300 [User impact if declined]: broken preference field in in-content prefs [Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: nope :-( [Risks and why]: very low, very simple change that fixes only the event handler that deals with this preference field [String/UUID change made/needed]: nope
(FWIW, 37 is only affected until the in-content prefs are turned off for LATE_BETA - so the last few betas + release won't be affected - but I would prefer to get as much testing as possible)
Comment on attachment 8572619 [details] [diff] [review] pass the element instead of the pane object to gSyncUtils.changeName, In-content prefs will be disabled in Beta 4 so there's no need to take this fix on m-b. Beta-
