"Nimbus Screen Capture - editable screenshots" add-on does not work with e10s


(Firefox :: Extension Compatibility, defect)

40 Branch
Not set



Tracking Status
e10s + ---


(Reporter: geoffp, Unassigned)



Fails silently in Dev Edition 40.0a2 after "selected area" screen capture with e10s enabled. I expected the save dialog, but got nothing. Worked fine when I turned e10s back off and restarted.
I'm not sure this is totally e10s. I'm running a Debian "stretch" (testing) system with the Debianized "iceweasel" browser. It's currently 38.2.0 and Nimbus is working fine.

On both Aurora / Developer Edition 42.0a2 (2015-08-18) and Nightly (2015-08-18), even with e10s disabled it doesn't work quite right. First of all, when I try to select an area, the "overview pane" doesn't move out of the way when I try to select an area under the pane. On Iceweasel this works. 

Second, when I send the image to the "Nimbus" editor in Developer Edition, the controls aren't working quite right. For example, pressing the blue "Done" button does nothing. This happens even with e10s disabled.
More Firefox / Nimbus screenshot grief: Windows 8.1 64-bit, Firefox Stable 40.0.2. Most everything seems to be working *except* the feature I want to use - selecting a capture area with the mouse! I press the button and nothing happens.
Reproducible: Can successfully capture Selected area with mouse, however when clicking the check to save, that does not occur with e10s enabled
