1. Show All Bookmarks.
2. Select a folder with too many items to fit in view vertically, so that a vertical scrollbar shows.
3. Scroll down to the bottom.
4. Click the last item to select it.

Actual results:
The lower pane expands vertically, but the scroll position doesn't adjust. This results in the list of bookmarks being partially obscured, including the bookmark that was just selected.

Expected results:
The lower pane expands if necessary, without obscuring the list of bookmarks.

Not a big deal.
Anyway we should first fix Bug 1468992, and then we can decide to either make the panel a fixed height, so it doesn't flicker, or scroll the tree so the selected item is always visible after updating the pane.

Alternate STR, a bit more of a nuisance than comment 0:

1. Show All Bookmarks.
2. Select a folder with too many items to fit in view vertically, so that a vertical scrollbar shows.
3. Scroll down to the bottom.
4. Middle-click the last item to open it in a new tab.

Actual results:
The bookmark doesn't open. The lower pane expands vertically, but the scroll position doesn't adjust. This results in the list of bookmarks being partially obscured.

Expected results:
The bookmark opens in a new tab.
thanks for additional testing, bumping a bit, still not a blocker, imo.

Affects right clicks as well. A right click won't open the context menu of the bookmark as expected.
If the new location of a text field ends up where you right clicked, it will instead open the context menu for that text field, otherwise no context menu appears at all.

Too late to fix in 64. Marking this issue as fix-optional for 65; if you land a patch in nightly and think it's low-risk for beta, please request uplift.

The general thoughts for fixing this are:

  • Having the Library window revert to horizontal alignment of fields would be acceptable.
  • It would possibly be best to separate the styles of the library window and the Star UI panels but we're not sure how easy that will be.

So if we can un-share we could then revert the changes in bug 1459885 for just the library window.
