[ux] After a user selects 'Stop It' from the hang monitor, the foreground browser tab crashes
The title of this is a bit of a tease, this is totally expected based on our design. From a user perspective though it is completely unexpected and makes the browser look broken. Here's the current crashed tab mockup: http://people.mozilla.org/~mmaslaney/e10s/Firefox-e10s-v6.png The top line text is the odd part: "Bad New First: This Tab Has Crashed" I think if the user explicitly selects "Stop It" from the hang notification (being implemented in bug 1119442) this text should change. Something along the line of: "Bad News: We had to close/flush/kill/end/reset your tabs" I'm not sure I'd keep the "Bad News" part either. It sounds very unexpected. "Unfortunately, we had to close your tabs" Also I think we should consider removing the word "crash" from the body of text in the page.
fixed this by avoiding crashing tabs in a response to a plugin or script hang. We might have to come back to this at some point.
