Description

I've found that our "list of discovered services" chrome API is still "unstable".  Services appear and disappear over short periods of time.  This list should be much more stable and grow/shrink predictably instead of changing randomly.

I've got a problem with the list of printers in Thunderbird being unstable, is it related to this bug?
I've reported my problem as Bug 1298609 Please look at my video of the problem: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/attachment.cgi?id=8785595
Is my problem an example of this bug?

I'm not sure.  Do you know what mechanism thunderbird uses for DNS-SD?  We made changes to the nsIDSNServiceDiscovery implementation, but the list-stability problem has been fixed for a while, and we get pretty stable discoveries from within firefox for our project.

squib: Since you know Thunderbird better than me, do you think you can take a quick look and see if this issue in Bug 1298609 could possibly have anything to do with our mDNS impl? I was going to close this bug since we've resolved our issue with the query results stability, but I wanted to make sure we didn't accidentally affect Thunderbird first. Thanks!

I don't think this bug has anything whatsoever to do with Thunderbird. In bug 1298609, the reporter indicates that there's no issue in Firefox, and since this code would be shared, this probably isn't it.

In any case, Thunderbird is built on the 45 branch and I don't think FlyWeb had even landed at that point.

Good to know. Thanks for the info!

Closing this bug since we seem to have resolved our own stability issues with service discovery.
