[XHR2] Not passing the responseXML.lastmodified test.

Firefox presently does not pass the web platform test checking the value of responseXML.lastModified (as in, this blocks bug 918688).

However, the test itself will change (or be removed), so I created this bug as a reminder to check and see what decision was made. See the comments in bug 918773 for more detail.

Summary: responsexml lastmodified → [XHR2] Not passing the responseXML.lastmodified test.
Component: General → DOM: Core & HTML
Product: Firefox → Core
Thomas, I think the actual issue here is that we attempt to compare it to the Last-Modified header which the server does not set. If we just compare it to it seems like that should be fine and will match the specification.

I hadn't realized the test was actually trying to use the Last-Modified header.

(We might want to add a test where the Last-Modified header is set I suppose.)
Ever confirmed: true
Then if I'm not misinterpreting you, this patch should do the trick.

If that's the case, then Firefox already passes both tests.

Yeah, that looks reasonable to me.

Alright. James, hallvors mentioned in another ticket that you're the one to nudge if a change to the web platform tests should be uplifted. If that's the case, then could you check out the patch in comment 2, and let me know if I can help out any further?

Nothing is needed from me if annevk or someone r+'s the patch to land in general.

My main comment is that you are overusing assert_true. Please make better use of assert_equals and assert_greater_than[_equals]. Remember multiple asserts are like && i.e. the test will only pass if they all pass.

Sure, here's a version that addresses that issue.

Alright, here's a final version of the patch that we can check in, but I don't have access, so could you check it in for me, James? Carrying over r=annevk.
