Details

We need to make sure that the snippets can appear after the initial about:home load completes.

Priority: -- → P3

It looks like this works out of the box, so I'm closing this as INVALID.

I'm less sure now that this is working. I want to test this thoroughly before closing it again.

So there's a race here. When loading a cached document, it's (very) possible for the ASRouterUISurface to mount and for the NEWTAB_MESSAGE_REQUEST message to be sent to the parent before the ASRouter module has initted and set up the listener for that message.

bigiri is working on porting ASRouter to using JSWindowActors, which I believe will help sidestep this.

This was fixed by bug 1614465. And then bug 1709984 disabled snippets by default. I think this is a WONTFIX now.
