[e10s] With e10s enabled, the tracking protection shield & error-console logging doesn't reliably show up when things are blocked


(Core :: DOM: Security, defect)

Not set



Tracking Status
e10s m6+ ---


(Reporter: dholbert, Assigned: mrbkap)



STR (basically the same as bug 1130893):
 0. Have e10s and tracking protection both enabled, and be signed into facebook.
 1. Visit
 2. Hit "play" button

The video doesn't play (for now, see bug 1130893), and a shield icon should appear in the URLbar [or already be there] so that I can disable tracking protection & play the video.

The video doesn't play, and *no shield icon shows up*, so there's no indication why the page is broken or what I can do to fix it.

(If I manually go to about:config and disable tracking protection, then I can reload the video page & play it successfully. So I know it's tracking protection that's blocking it from working. Yet there's no indication in the URL bar.)

(These STR may no longer work after bug 1130893 is fixed, but hopefully alternate STR can be found at that point if this bug here is still un-fixed.)
 - If I have e10s disabled, then when the video page loads, I generally see something like this in my error console when the video is blocked:
> The resource at http://[...]something.mp4[...] was blocked because tracking protection is enabled.
But if I have e10s *enabled*, then I do *not* see that message in my error console.

That's troubling. I normally run with e10s and haven't encountered this behavior before bug 1130893. I wonder if it has to do with but am not really sure. Leaving myself needinfo in case I have time to investigate soon.

It looks like nsChannelClassifier::SetBlockedTrackingContent may be occasionally failing in e10s, though the channel cancellation works. I definitely see the shield in e10s mode on a lot of pages, though.

I observed this briefly on when debugging bug 1139623, but no longer.
I'm going to mark this WFM. I'm hoping that people here were seeing other bugs (but also note bug 1152119).
