I don't know if this is a dupe of 1125764, in which case please mark it as so. I only just noticed it today, so filing anyway just to be on the safe side :)


1.) Using the latest Nightly click Help -> Nightly Tour
2.) When the page loads, wait for the door-hanger to appear in the top corner
3.) Minimize the browser

Expected results:

The info panel and highlight should be hidden

Actual results:

The info panel and highlight remain visible

We used to work around this in the web page by hiding annotations on Page Visibility event changes.


But this no longer appears to work since Bug 1110602 landed.
The workaround will work again after bug 1125764 but we should keep this open to fix it properly in-product. It was something I was fixing originally in a large patch to revamp teardown in bug 1110602 but I decided to split it into smaller pieces and do less to avoid breaking existing tours.

I'm not sure if there is a good way to detect minimizing (we get a visibilitychange but we can't distinguish between visibilitychange due to closing a tab vs. minimizing and we want to do different teardowns in those cases).

I think bug 1109868 could also help with this.

I can confirm the workaround in bug 1125764 has fixed this again for now - will leave this open though as you suggest. Thanks, Matt!
I wonder if the recently fixed bug 1276120 helps with this on Windows.
