3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/45.0.2453.0 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

I was testing some Applications for FirefoxOS and I was unable to find my Flame device under "WiFi Devices" in WebIDE.
Since my device and the the laptop are connected to the same WiFi Network.
Nightly Build : 42.0a1  
Developer Browser : 41.0a2
Flame : Nightly 12th July


Actual results:

Unable to connect to WiFi Device for debugging wirelessly.


Expected results:

WebIDE should have shown my device under WiFi Devices.
I'm also having this issue with the same Nightly/Flame builds. Enabled DevTools via Wi-Fi in developer settings on my device but it does not show in WebIDE.

Component: Gaia::System::Wifi → Developer Tools
I've had reports of several similar issues, but it's hard to get enough information to make them actionable.

If either of you can try the following test, it would help greatly:

* Try a different WiFi network from the one you've been testing, such as a coffee shop, friend's house, etc.

As far as I've been able to tell, some WiFi routers are configured to block the discovery info that allows the devices to see each other.  So, this test will help us figure out if it's something to do with the computer / phone or the WiFi network itself.

I have tried on other WiFi Networks also but it still doesn't show in the WebIDE Interface.
Flags: needinfo?(dikshit_rocks93)
Also tried on another network (through a StraightTalk Wifi HotSpot device) and it is still not appearing. Will keep testing this on any other networks I can get onto whenever possible. 

Do we know if being connected as a USB device prevents it from showing as a Wifi device in WebIDE? i.e. if I'm charging my device via USB and it is listed under USB Devices, would it not bother connecting as a wifi device as well? (It doesn't seem to make a difference in the little testing that I've done, but just a thought of something to also look for when people are testing this.)

Sorry for the delay...  I don't believe that should matter.  I've successfully used WiFi debug while also having the USB cord connected.

I wish I knew better diagnostic steps to find out what's happening here. :(

The latest builds (2.5 both Engineering and Production) doesn't have this problem.
Sometimes the problem lies with the Router (Or the WiFi Device) that is used as a Access Point (AP).
So we need to create a page with builds which have this page so that we may specifically work on them and the issue.

It shows for me of my Flame device on WebIDE (mine is Boot2Gecko 3.0.0.0-prerelease of qcom model, and shows in WebIDE as flame-8637badf).

What is your version?  And did you have your developer settings and Debug and ADB settings set before connecting your phone via USB to computer?  Mine shows in WebIDE on Windows OS and on Linux(Ubuntu) in Web IDE whenever I connect it using either OS. And it is has the Developer and ADB settings selected.  So, I am wondering if maybe the problem might exist if settings aren't selected on the more recent versions of Firefox OS Flame phone before the phone is connected to a computer.

I was able to use webide through wifi on aries without any issue, until I receive the Firefox 41 update. After I apply this update, my phone don't appear on wi-fi list in webide anymore, and the previous configuration stopped does not work.

Jryans, There are something I should to to re-enable it?

Thanks

If you revert to a previous version of desktop Firefox does it start working again?

On the device, if you go to Settings -> Device Information -> More Information -> Build Identifier, what value do you have?

Did you happen to install any device updates between the time it worked and started failing?

Jryans, sorry after I restart and close other instances from Nightly, all my phones appears on webide via wifi.  That's cool, thank you!
