The Tasks menu has the following items: Navigator Mail Instant Messenger Security Advisor Composer ------------------ Address Book Newsgroup ------------------- Tools According to German: "Hi Dave: Agree, the Menu Framework specification for 5.0 specifically mentions Security to be a menu item in the Tasks menu, but in poisition much lower than what you describe: Navigator Mail Instant Messenger Address Book ------------------------ Services A > Services B > Services C > Services D > ------------------------ Services E > Services F > Services G > Services H > ------------------------ Security Info Shift-I ------------------------ Tools > ------------------------ Go To Window > Where did you find this? + G "

Changing Summary from "[beta] Security Advisor should move down in task menu" to "[beta] need final task menu implementation". Reassigning to German. I agree with the email from German that Dave copied into the bug.
Don: we need help with implementing this menu as spec'd. Who is working on the corss-app menus these days? I assume Matt would be the right person?
This was being handled by davidm. I am guessing it still is.

Chris, you are now the proud owner of the task menu/switcher for beta 1. Aren't you the lucky one.
Assignee: matt → mcafee
The task menu/switcher has to work for beta and contain the correct items. Nominating as a "beta1" blocker.
Also see bug 24121 which details what we are doing for beta 1 in the Task Bar. Getting everything right in this menu is not as critical as the Task Bar - Netcenter expects the Task Bar but is less worried about the menu for beta 1. We just need to make sure that this menu doesn't "suck". This doesn't have to be a beta 1 blocker, but it should remain M14.
removed Don's beta1 nomination - Don OKed that.
If Net2Phone is installed on the end user's machine, a TASK menu item for Net2Phone should be placed in the 2nd group where the Address Book is listed. List Net2Phone as the last component in this group.

I guess it's about time we fixed these up to look exactly like they're supposed to. Johng and German, I can't find specs for this stuff that have been updated since 00:00 Jan 1, 1970 (that's what the dates say :-), could you point some out? While you're at it specs for the taskbar(separate bug) would be cool too as I think things have shifted a little since PR1.

nsbeta3 to keep on radar. Important polish issue.
JohnG I assume this is fixed - right?. Right the Tasks menu is implemented according to spec, except we have now a submenu "Privacy and Security" as decided elsewhere, as well as we decided to simply appending the list of windows to the last section of Tasks menu instead of having another submenu in order to make them more discoverable. Marking worksforme. Please reopen if you see the need or file new bug if we need to change/amend other stuff.

nav triage team: nsbeta3+, P1 the current implementation is correct except that we need to add a link for "Download" ... German will clarify.

Yes I can do everything except the following two mirracles: a) Get german to make the spec reasonable (or change the spec at all) b) Change the api. Currently xul allows absolute positioning. This is not a good idea. Assuming I want something near: ------------------------- Address Book <--here--> ------------------------- I can guess that the number 6 is ok for positioning My current menu has: Nav Mail Comp - Addr 6- 7IRC Chat [as you can see Chatzilla is already suffering because of this feature absense] Someone else might have: Nav - <nothing> - Privacy And Security - Tools 7IRC Chat Until we change the api to be sane I can't truely fix all of the problems to match the requested spec. Hi Ben, I'm sure you know who should address the insertion issues. Please CC them w/ comment. For the moment, I think I could use java script to get the id's of the separators, and insert after them. -- Alternative: We use multiple <menupopup><!--s--></menupopup> For the tasks menu, And just combine them using some JS glue [The overlay writers specify which tasks menu they want to put something in], this solves the location functionality very easily and cleanly (except for js glue). Example: <menu id="taskPopup" onload="compositeTaskPopup()"> <menupopup id="appSuite"> <menu id="navi" value="Navigator"> </menupopup> <menupopup id="appExtras"> <menu id="adbk" value="Address Book"> </menupopup> <menupopup id="appPSM"> <menu id="psm" value="Privacy and Security"> </menupopup> <menu id="tools"/> <menupopup id="appWindows"/> </menu> By default a separator will appear before and after each menupopup (except where it would be the first or last item in the menu). Actually this proposal solves problems in File>New> and probably elsewhere. If I can get the glue working I'll attach a demo patch. Blake what do you think? -- I also have a bunch of problems with the spec. German I now have CVS. I'm going to make changes to the spec according to a proposal I sent you months ago. If you have objections please send them to me w/in the week. Hi Brendan. German is unresponsive. I'll forward a copy of my proposed changes.

PDT does not see what is critical to do here? Looks like low profile polish. Moving to P3. Adding [PDTP3]
Priority: P1 → P3
(Cosmetics only, but anyhow... ) Also, selecting the "Address Book" item if the mail component is not installed does nothing. I guess it should not be rendered at all, or at least disabled?
I have worked on this and am almost ready to give it to people, my solution would also work for File>New>. If I don't attach the patch to this bug by wednesday, someone should nag me.
timeless: some comments. You need to add new files to makefile.win, makefile.mk, MANIFEST, and jar.mn files. It also needs to be verified that this works in the netscape commercial build. IMHO this is too risky for nsbeta3.
As of today, the first level of the menu on the commercial build looks fine with 2 possible changes. Commerical build today (build 2000091408)looks like this: Tasks: - Navigator Ctrl+1 - Mail Ctrl+2 - Instant Messenger Ctrl+3 - Composer Ctrl+4 - Address Book Ctrl+5 --------------------- - Net2Phone - Privacy and Security > --------------------- - Tools --------------------- (session history list) SUB MENUS: Privacy and Security > - Secuirty Manager - Password Manager > - Form Manager > - Cookie Manager > ----------------- - Understanding Privacy All of this, and the details within the sub-folders, is currently correct with 2 possible exceptions: 1) The link to "Understanding Privacy" appears to be pointing to the wrong document. See bug 52674 2) We need to add an item to this menu, specifically "Download" and this should immediately follow "Tools" before the separator. The url should be the following: http://home.netscape.com/bookmark/6_0/tdownload.html
- Address Book Ctrl+5 --------------------- - Net2Phone - Privacy and Security > That's wrong. Net2Phone should not be near P&S.
I was unable to guarantee the menu item positions because we can only specify absolute position of menu items (I think). Specifically, AIM in the #3 slot pushes other elements down but does NOT push them down for mozilla, so the absolute insertion point is a moving target and makes Task menu ordering non-deterministic. If we could use relative positioning or some dummy element mechanism, that would be good. Hyatt or ben?

Just to clarify the Netscape Task menu is supposed to look like this: Navigator Mail Instant Messenger Composer Address Book --------- Net2Phone Other installed components (like Chatzilla or ThemeBuilder) --------- Privacy and Security > Tools > ---------- Open Window 1 Open Window 2 ... Open Window n This is also what McAfee had attempted to do, but as he describes the ordering problem was such that this could not be accomplished easily. The bug goes to Ben (cc'ing Hyatt) because either one of this guys might know of mighter ways to insert menus other than the above mentioned absolute positioning.
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2-][nsbeta3+][buggy spec WILL be corrected RSN] → [nsbeta2-][nsbeta3+]
It is impossible to force add on applications to occupy a given range. An add on, such as chatzilla, mailnews, AIM etc may insert any nodes it pleases into any node with an ID, at any index. What specifically is going wrong?

Temporarily elevating to P2. Is this a stop ship bug? Do we want to move it to RTM?

I had a recommended implementation for this, but I think mozilla killed my computer while i was distracted and had not submitted, i'll write the recommendation and proposed patch tonight. sfraser: it'll be based on that code I asked you to check, so I need to know if that code worked on macos.
PDT thinks this is an nsbeta3- at this point. If you renominate for RTM, please resummarize the critical issue at hand.

yeah id's might work. Since this is coming in from a (possibly) commercial overlay, we might want to have generically-named menu id stubs.

the problem reported here is that (a) our implementation doesn't match the spec and (b) items tend to land out of their ranges [examples of things that fall incorrectly include chatzilla and some commercial items]. it has been mentioned that we now have insertafter and insertbefore which should probably work to fix this bug. I've seen relatively recent reports of (b) so i'd say it isn't fixed. but whatever.
