As of API 16, this (https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/f81bcc23d37d7bec48f08b19a9327e93c54d37b5/mobile/android/base/java/org/mozilla/gecko/GeckoApp.java#1280) is no longer needed. https://developer.android.com/reference/android/os/AsyncTask.html says: > The AsyncTask class must be loaded on the UI thread. This is done automatically as of JELLY_BEAN.
Hello Jan! Should I remove the try,catch block of AsyncTask and submit a patch?
Sorry for not making this clearer in the bug description, but this bug becomes relevant only when we stop supporting API level 15, since the underlying Android bug this is working around has been fixed only starting from API 16. You can look at bug 1363843 for something similar if you want.
Summary: Remove AsyncTask initialisation workaround → Remove AsyncTask initialisation workaround once we're building with minSdk >= 16
