The status bar is now white for the communications apps (Phone, SMS, Contacts), Calendar and Music, when it should be their respective colours of green, orange and black. E-mail is apparently unaffected.
I can't reliably reproduce this bug. I saw it once in maybe 30 attempts. I saw a black status bar in Messages app once as well. Obviously we can't find a window for a bug that's not reliably reproducible. Changing tag to steps-wanted, unless the reporter can provide steps that reliably reproduces the bug.

Chris what build are you using?  This seems very similar to bug 1175160.

Clearing my needinfo, but this bug still exists in a less extreme way than it did when I reported it.

Taking, because I'm fairly certain why it happens and I'm looking at a fix now because it was bugging me...


1. Install Facebook
2. Launch Facebook (may require you to have previously logged in)


Statusbar is blue, rocketbar has the Facebook favicon


Statusbar is often white, with no favicon. Refreshing usually fixes it.

Heh, looks like Facebook have removed (or changed?) the meta tag, but I can reproduce this in my own apps and have a fix.

There are so many bugs/races because we don't load AppChrome synchronously, and it just looks bad when it pops in suddenly... I wish we just loaded it synchronously and sucked up that it might not perform quite as well...

Either way, this is a fix that doesn't do that.

r=me with
* a cleanup of |this.metaChangeDetail| in |destroyBrowser|
* a simple unit test similar to the 'Load event before _opened' one
