User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_10_5) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/45.0.2454.101 Safari/537.36




Expected results:

It would be great if when the user enables "tap-to-load" for images, the browser would append "Save-Data: on" header on outgoing requests to notify origins that the user has opted-in into a data savings mode.

This is not a bug but a feature request.

So.. Where does one file feature requests?
Ok so I just got a little guidance. I will format this so that it goes to the correct person.

Thank you for you patients,

Justin

I think this is something that would need to be initiated by the Android team (where the tap-to-load feature lives), rather than starting with the imagelib team.
Component: ImageLib → General
Product: Core → Firefox for Android
Yes. Just to clarify, tap-to-load is a concept that does not even exist at the ImageLib level, so we simply could not implement this feature in ImageLib as things stand now.
Got it. Thanks for the helpful information. I will take note of that.
This would require the core networking team to implement bug 935216 first.
Depends on: 935216

Kevin: not really. 935216 is about implementing DPR, Width, and Viewport-Width headers. This discussion is about Save-Data. They're completely independent of each other.
Well then we need a networking bug to implement the save-data header, filing.
No longer depends on: 935216
Blocks: 1232812
Networking team does not intend to implement the header.
