There is no way to close this windows other than quitting mozilla. Also, dialogs that are started from inside of my xul app are in some kind of full screen mode, despite the fact that I specify a width and height. The XUL error window should simply be a dialog. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a xul app that has a dialog 2. Ensure that the dialog when selected will not parse 3. Use the button to start the dialog Actual Results: The error message takes over the whole screen and cannot be dismissed without shutting down mozilla. This turns every small error into a shutdown/restart cycle for the browser. There is no window bar, so I do not have the red circular button to close with. Because the window appears to be larger than my monitor I have no way to grab a corner and make the window smaller. Trying to dismiss the parent window also fails. Expected Results: Displayed the window in a dialog that has a close button and a window management close button. Basically, just behave in a way that allows me to dismiss the error. This behavior also effects certain dialogs. My full time job right now is XUL development. I have a nice new powerbook to work on, however due to these errors I cannot use it. I do not experience these errors under linux, so I'm stuck on my old linux box until this is resolved. I am a professional software engineer. If there is somewhere simple you could point me to solve the bug I'll take a look at it, but I haven't done any mozilla dev so far.
I've also noticed that on my linux box the error window is displayed full screen. Linux is just has a smarter window manager that lets me see the close button even though the window is taking up all the avaiable real estate. Just finding a way to stick a "close" button at the top of the error window would be enough for me to get back to work.
http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=195854 I posted this bug awhile ago for BeOS, Im wondering if its part of the same problem.
> 1. Create a xul app that has a dialog please attach ("Create a New Attachment") such an app as a testcase for this bug. if this is a Mac problem, please change hardware/OS fields appropriately. this does not block Mozilla development.
Created attachment 126713 [details] This is my application. After install Tools | Reports has two buttons to show the problem
Sorry about the confusion marking as blocker. It doesn't block the development of mozilla but it does block my ability to use mozilla for development. Attached is a zip file of my projects. This will decompress into a directory called xulapps, which should be located in your home directory. You need to have jslib from jslib.mozdev.org installed. I use these lines in installed-chrome.txt. Obviously, you'll need to change my home directory name to your name. skin,install,url,file:///Users/jasonhenriksen/xulapps/agilmente/resources/skin/ locale,install,url,file:///Users/jasonhenriksen/xulapps/agilmente/resources/locale/en-US/ content,install,url,file:///Users/jasonhenriksen/xulapps/agilmente/resources/content/ skin,install,url,file:///Users/jasonhenriksen/xulapps/reports/resources/skin/ locale,install,url,file:///Users/jasonhenriksen/xulapps/reports/resources/locale/en-US/ content,install,url,file:///Users/jasonhenriksen/xulapps/reports/resources/content/ After you've restarted mozilla you should see two applications under your tools menu: Agility and Reports. Ignore Agility, it is only included because reports depends on it. Select the Reports tool and you should see two buttons along the bottom. These are two different ways that I am able to reproduce this behavior. I'm sure you can think of any number of solutions, but quick fixes that would be fine for me include a mozilla menu item that says "resize current window" or even just "close current window" By the way, this bug does result in loss of anything I'm doing in other mozilla windows. No dialogs or other windows are available while this window is expanded in this way. Thanks for your help. As before, if there is anything I can do to help, let me know.
