However, the address bar still has the down-arrow for the drop-down list. This is a waste of screen space. I would prefer that if there is no remembered history (nothing in the drop-down), then the down-arrow should go away (that is, the address bar should appear as a plain vanilla text box.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set your Privacy pref to remember some positive number of days' worth of URLs. 2. Visit some URLs. 3. Observe that the drop-down list from the address bar shows these URLs. 4. Set your Privacy pref to remember 0 days' worth of URLs. 5. Visit some more URLs. 6. Observe that no drop-down list appears in the address bar, even when clicking the down arrow. Actual Results: no drop-down list appears in the address bar, even when clicking the down arrow Expected Results: Removed the down arrow, or at least grayed it out (The first option is preferable to optimize screen space)
This can probably be done, but IMO it's not worth the hassle. Recommending WONTFIX.
After additional thinking about this, I just checked with IE and IE does not implement this (he also completely ignores the History=0 days setting). But this is only a bynote. Furthermore this would require us to implement the urlbar as a textbox and not as a combobox as it is now, when History = 0 days and I think this is simply not worth the effort. The waste of screenspace is negligible. You can easily remove some icons, go into small icon mode or move all the icons to the menu bar. -> WONTFIX
Fair enough. Note, though, that IE does show a blank drop-down list when clicking on the arrow, whereas Mozilla doesn't. On the whole I think Mozilla's behavior of highlighting the current URL (or moving the cursor into the address bar if it's blank) is preferable to IE's showing a blank drop-down list from a functional point of view. It just looked really weird to have a drop-down arrow that looks clickable, and yet does not do what one expects drop-downs to do.
VERIFYING obvious WONTFIX bugs. Filter on firebirdWontFix to filter these bugs. I skipped a few that I'm unsure about from their summary and will manually go through them.
