Bring back spaces on the Mac .app


(Toolkit :: Application Update, enhancement, P3)





(Reporter: Sylvestre, Unassigned)



As part of the bug 1378834, Glandium suggested that we add spaces in the .app name:

In bug 1423856, the first time it landed, it seems that it caused some issues.
So, i did a backout of the patch:

Now, because OSX nightly were broken for a different reason ( ), I am not sure it was the same issue. We should figure out what would be require to test that.

To note for this bug that the Applications and Dock show FirefoxNightly.
Bug 1427000 - Add spaces in the .app - Try to land on the oak branch to test the nightly builds/updates
Adrian, could you please double check this bug for me on oak?

Downloading and try to update.
On my system, the update works even if the application is still called Nightly on the system.
Doing the same with 58 on oak (which has probably the patch) works fine with spaces.
59 seems to work out of the box.

Sylvestre, for the OAK build for 57 from comment 3, the update gets stuck - I can't update at all.
On Mac OsX(10.13.3):
- about:nightly - shows update available -restart to update
- upon every restart, I get prompted the Mac auth to install a new helper after which it looks like trying to update something.
- when it restarts, the pop-up Software update is displayed again: I either get stuck into the restart to update dialog or the "Nightly can't update".

Should I try updates from older 59 oak to 59 oak?

Ah, glad you are having this error. I had it once but could not reproduce.
Could you please share what you have in the Browser console ? (Tools => Web Developer => Browser Console)

I am not sure why it is working for me... Are you trying that with admin permissions?
Flags: needinfo?(sledru)
To summarize what we've also discussed on slack, I am running on admin account + there is nothing relevant in the browser console.
I've also tried with the 58 oak build ( and for 58 oak it just throws the "Nightly can't update".
