[Mac] Prefpanes should specify heights.


(Firefox :: Preferences, defect)

Not set



Firefox 3 beta1

(1 file, 1 obsolete file)

bug 393117 was only the first part of fixing the prefs window on mac. Part 2 is to give the window absolute heights, so it can have the same behavior windows has, i.e. not resize at all, and be big enough for the tallest prefpane.

Eventually we'd like to get the resizing behavior fixed, but on the widget end we've already sunk too much time on it, and there are more important things to do.

Damon, this needs to block, since the API that would have fixed this bug was backed out. It's a regression and it's basically awful looking.
So, the api regression of window.moveTo from gecko 1.8 is no longer on the 1.9 radar either, eh?

Nevermind this comment, the resizing bug is the regression, not this one.

Attached patch v1.0 (obsolete) — Splinter Review
So, this makes things much better on my end.  Occasionally I can get it to do some strange things when going to/from the Applications tab, but I can't find steps to reproduce it consistently.  We could ifdef out the code that calls window.sizeToContent in the binding for the prefwindow when we change our selected pane, but I'm not even sure if that'd help (it's unclear what was causing the height to change).

I'm also not sure if I need to change the entity name since I changed the value of the string.  I know for strings that is usually the case, but since this is a sizing thing, I'm not sure if that same rule applies.

mconnor should review this... Disabling animateFadeIn entirely sounds like a bad idea to me. Bug 355177 is marked blocking1.9+ - is it not going to get fixed?

It is unlikely that we're going to get animating working. Please work towards getting the preferences working correctly without animation and we can add animation and turn it on if we can later.

IOW, don't wait around for animation to get the pref panes shippable.

r=me, this isn't perfect by any means, but its better than the current situation.  We can switch back to animation when that actually works right on Mac.

Please change the entity name here and in the corresponding xul file so localizers will pick this up.
