Description

a year ago
Bug 1365868 has gained a patch for a basic context menu, but there's more work to be done.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1365868 +++

Things that work at the moment and won't work automatically after switching to GeckoView:
- context menus
- context menu entries added by add-ons
- "Open Link in New (Private) Tab" opens a new tab in Firefox and shows the usual snackbar - pressing the "Switch" button on that then switches to our normal BrowserApp-based UI to show that tab (I guess bug 1365868 won't support opening the tab in background without switching to Firefox?)
- "Parent tab" functionality: Pressing the back button on a normal tab that was opened from a custom tab/web app closes that tab again and returns to the original custom tab/web app activity. (This might already work with the patches for bug 1365868 if the new tab is treated as an externally opened tab?)

After bug 1411529 landed, previous "minimal context menu" worked. This bug should only focus on "full" support of the feature.
