Description

2 years ago
I often don't notice the tab queue prompt because I tap a link and then glance away from my phone, and miss the three seconds that the prompt is visible. I'd like to be able to customize the duration of the overlay.

I guess it's this? https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/1a5b53a831e5a6c20de1b081c774feb3ff76756c/mobile/android/base/java/org/mozilla/gecko/tabqueue/TabQueueService.java#72

That patch changed snackbars from LENGTH_SHORT to LENGTH_LONG, but didn't appear to touch the timeout in the file/line I linked in comment 0. According to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2220560/can-an-android-toast-be-longer-than-toast-length-long/5079536#5079536 the default values for LENGTH_SHORT and LENGTH_LONG are 2 and 3.5 seconds, respectively. 

Would there be any objections to simply increasing the TOAST_TIMEOUT value from 3 seconds to 4 or 5 seconds?

I tried[1][2] to add a preference to let people customize the delay, but I'm clearly not very good at writing correct java because the build and the linter failed with that patch.
