Overview Description:
The 16 pixels by 16 pixels area at the lower right corner of a resizable window
is covered by the standard size box on Mac OS. There should not be other UI
components occupying that space.

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Open the profile migration window

Actual Results:
The size box overlaps with the "Exit" button.

Expected Results:
Expected the space required by the size box to be reserved for the size box

UPM problem; reassigning.


Bhuvan, is this a UPM-specific implementation problem?

  Perhaps there have been some UI changes since this bug was filed. I'm taking 
the "profile migration window" mentioned in the original writeup to be the little 
progress dialog that shows while a Navigator profile is being migrated. That 
window is resizeable and, I'd say, shouldn't be. I think that's all there is to 
this bug.
  Unfortunately, this window is created using deprecated C++ 
(nsIAppShellService::CreateTopLevelWindow in nsProfile.cpp), so the window isn't 
easily made not resizeable. This wants to be changed over to using JS OpenDialog, 
examples of which are all over the code (nsCommonDialogs::DoDialog, for 
instance). That's the best way to open a window from C++, and it's easily made 
not resizeable from there.
  Reassigning to the person CVS Blame fingers as the original caller of the 
function. Seth, you probably want to bounce it to someone else. This should all 
be straightforward, and it's not a big deal in any case.

This one is already fixed on nsProfile.cpp. I used the following to fix the 
chrome style. Then use CHROME_STYLE as your style tag. In case of migration, 
profile manager's toplevel window is loaded with confirm migration text.

#if defined (XP_MAC)
#define CHROME_STYLE nsIWebBrowserChrome::windowBordersOn | 
#else /* the rest */
#define CHROME_STYLE nsIWebBrowserChrome::allChrome

In case of this bug, the window that has the resizable handle on it is the 
toplevelwindow opened by nsPrefMigration.cpp 

Reassigning to Don Bragg. The above should fix it.

This bug is no longer valid. Resize boxes on Mac OS X don't conflict with widgets the way they did in classic Mac OS, and we don't have any other issues of this sort at this time.
