Cold start tab restoration interferes with entering new URL in location bar
STR: 1) Have a few tabs open, then kill Firefox with the app switcher 2) Re-open Firefox, and as soon as possible, tap the URL bar to enter a new URL 3) Try to enter new URL/search query quickly Expected: process for "launch, tap URL bar, enter URL" is smooth and efficient, not affected by tab restoration Actual: depending on the loading process of the tab being restored, sometimes the URL gets replaced as you are typing, and/or the URL bar styling changes (grey font). I frequently have to try one or two times to clear the location bar and type what I want.
Some of this is fixed in recent builds, particularly URL overwriting, but I still think we might have work to do to get out of the user's way.
We talked this morning and decided that some mitigation here is important for v1. I'll file a second bug to provide some clue to the user that restoration is happening -- e.g., a Chrome-like greyed-out snapshot. That won't track v1.
Does https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1191629 resolve this? I can't seem to reproduce any issues on testflight 31.
Good enough for me.
