.moz Apps .mgmt for Desktop Apps (available in b2g)
OS: Unspecified → Windows XP
Hardware: Unspecified → x86
Component: Untriaged → DOM: Apps
Product: Firefox → Core
This, like so many of Component DOM: Apps, is still unconfirmed and unassigned. This there a place to track progress in this area?
OS: Windows XP → All
Hardware: x86 → All
Version: 43 Branch → unspecified
Summary: TypeError: navigator.mozApps.mgmt is undefined → Implement navigator.mozApps.mgmt for Desktop Apps (available in b2g)
Apparently the mgmt property is currently only available for certified Firefox OS apps. I can already install a Firefox OS app as desktop app. Updating it does not work because navigator.mozApps.mgmt.applyDownload(app) is not available.
See http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/dom/apps/Webapps.js#247 Could this property be exposed for platforms other than Firefox OS, where certified apps are not relevant?
Adrian: In the best of times, this would be a difficult bug to fix, but we haven't been investing in the runtime, and I don't see a prospect of that happening, so I've proposed that we disable it, which would mean that we won't fix this bug. See the proposal for the details: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/firefox-dev/WV2XkVN3sWQ (If you have thoughts about the proposal, I encourage you to join the discussion in the firefox-dev forum, as that's where it's taking place. Discussion in this bug will be disconnected from it.)
Per bug 1238576, we're going to stop exposing navigator.mozApps on desktop/Android (except where MOZ_B2G is set, such as B2G Desktop), so we won't fix this bug.
