Description

Bug 414836 changed some ids in browser.xul that will break extensions.  This either needs to be documented or the old ids added back.
We changed the IDs intentionally, because we need to reset toolbar customization state.

I assumed so - this probably might have to be documented.
This is a bad way to reset localstore.rdf stuff. But I assume there is no other way to do that?

You can do it with JS but then how do you make sure it's done only once? (Yes, yes, I know stick a flag in localstore.rdf)

OK. I have only a few questions and I will stop shouting after those questions.

How does this change improve compatibility and maintainability for 
extension or theme developers?
The only thing I can see are broken extensions and/or themes. What will
happen next? Is the reset-toolbar-thing a moving target with "id changes" when needed?

Isn't it possible to do changes like this before late betas? 

"navigator-toolbox" was one of the really few constants you can rely on...

ID changes of this significance should be announced before checkeing them in.
Isn't there really another way to reset the customizations?

It doesn't, obviously. The cost of breaking addons needs to be weighed against the benefits of the new toolbar layout for all users. It's hard to make a judgment call without knowing how many add-ons are broken, how broken they are, and how hard the problem is to work around.

Got it.
But the 20080130-nightly used different IDs for the personal bookmarks folder
and the navigation toolbar. Right?
This was not working at all, so you decided to make it with the "navigator-toolbox" 
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Could it be that there a some wishes which can not be realized without breaking
a lot of extensions and themes and that the devs are in a "hurry state"?

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. We changed the navigation toolbar and personal bookmarks toolbar IDs because we're adding buttons to them and want them to appear for all users, even those with toolbars that are already customized. We needed to change the toolbox ID in bug 414836, because the icon size and type is persisted on the toolbox in addition to the toolbars, so resetting one and not the other leads to inconsistent indications in the customize toolbar panel on the first restart after picking up the changes.

All I want to say is that you are currently doing things in a hurry,
as far as I can see. If I'm wrong just give a link to the site where
those id changes were announced.

They weren't announced before the fact, you're right. Doron and mfinkle have since blogged about them, and mfinkle is working on an alternative solution that might allow us to revert the change.

perhaps I'm missing something, but couldn't we have done something like this to reset localstore state?
// get the rdf service
var rdfSvc = Cc["@mozilla.org/rdf/rdf-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIRDFService);
// get the localstore datasource
var localstore = rdfSvc.GetDataSource('rdf:local-store');
// get an nsIRDFResource for the navigator-toolbox item
var navigator_toolbox = rdfSvc.GetResource('chrome://browser/content/browser.xul#navigator-toolbox');
// enumerate its properties
var properties = localstore.ArLabelsOut(navigator_toolbox);
while(properties.hasMoreElements()) {
  var property = arc_labels.getNext();
  // enumerate the values for this property
  var targets = localstore.GetTargets(navigator_toolbox, property, true);
  while(targets.hasMoreElements()) {
    // clear the value
    localstore.Unassert(localstore, arc_label, targets.getNext());
  }
}

I just had the chance to take a look at Mark's proof-of-concept migration code, and it did look very promising.

Comment 18

So, will these ID's be reverted to the original values?

This change only to move the 'home' button caused problems with extensions and themes.
I imagine that it would be a one-time Ts hit, yes, but we're already doing some migration stuff for Places, aiui - can we hook into that so that we're not running two seperate migration paths?

Connor: I think we need a call here, one way or another, to determine if the cost of migration is worth the compatibility benefit. Blocking on that decision for Beta 3.

Comment 20

9 years ago
Note that resetting toolbars is generally not a nice thing to do - users might have their customizations there, this will make the whole Firefox upgrade experience awkward. Also, some extensions (e.g. Adblock Plus) put their icon into the toolbar - that happens only once, when the extension is installed the first time. These extensions will need some code to recognize that toolbars were reset programmatically rather than manually - and run the icon insertion code again. The users will for sure not understand why the icon that they never had to add manually suddenly disappeared.

Mark, when you design a better solution, can you maybe consider this? One option would be replacing "back-button" by "unified-back-forward-button,back-button" in the stored property - this will both keep user's chosen toolbar layout and prevent the toolbar from becoming unusable if the user downgrades to Firefox 2 again.
(In reply to comment #17)
> When would that be done?

What I've seen was more or less ready for prime time in that it would have the same effect as the id changes (without changing the ids). However, Mark said he'd like to make the migration smarter; e.g., instead of throwing away the currentsets, it would inject the back-forward item and move the home button explicitly.

> Would it impact Ts?

Besides the one-time migration, there would be a presumably cheap preference read on every startup.

I'd be happy to contribute RDF-fu if anyone needs help. I'll be on #developers (ianloic) all day.
I've applied additional documentation changes.  They'll need to be rolled back if we undo this change.

reverts id's and uses RDF service to try to migrate the persisted values

WIP v1: This patch sets the toolbox, nav toolbar and personal bookmark toolbar id's back to their previous values. It also adds some code to nsBrowserGlue.js to attempt a programmatic migration of the persisted data.

This patch is a brute force, first attempt to get it right. It removes all persisted data for the given XUL elements.

The next patch will only update the required data and *not* remove all persisted data.

I tested this by creating a FF2 profile with an extra button in the navigation toolbar and an extra button in the personal bookmark toolbar. When running FF3 (with patch) on the profile, the toolbars are correctly shown with the unified forward-back in the nav toolbar and the home button in the personal toolbar. As expected, the user customized buttons were dropped. The next patch should keep any user customized buttons when upgrading.

The migration is only attempted once using a pref check.

Maybe, but I'd like to keep this patch as minimally simple as possible, rolling back whatever I can.

getNavToolbox() would be the save way, i.e.:
InitWithToolbox(parent.getNavToolbox());

s/save/safe/

We should discuss this in a separate polish bug once all the urgent stuff has been resolved, but just to get in a point or two:

gToolbox or getToolbox() would in future make it easier to unfork Thunderbird which (currently uses getMailToolbox) and would reduce the amount of forking I would have to do in SeaMonkey. And it would help isolate the customize toolbar code from specific apps that call into it.

v2 - same as first patch, but it only changes what it needs

This patch is almost the same as the first patch, except the code only modifies the RDF persist values required to get the new UI working:
* removes "mode" and "iconsize" from the navigator-toolbox, nav-bar and PersonalToolbar
* replaces the "back-button" and "forward-button" on the nav-bar, but only if the buttons are side-by-side
* prepends the "home-button" to the PersonalToolbar

Everything else is left alone, so any user toolbar customizations are kept.

NOTE: feedback on the pref name is welcome.

I am hoping to get this quick fix in for beta 3, without any behavior changes from the original fix. If this is something that the UI guys can be convinced to do later, we can patch it in a separate bug.

v3 - with some new tweaks and checks

This patch only changes what it needs to, but it changes less than the v2 patch.
* iconsize and mode are *not* altered in any way. this is better for the user and not needed to get the functionality to work.
* the home button is only added to the PersonalToolbar if it was found in the nav-bar. If found it is removed from the nav-bar and prepended to the PersonalToolbar.
* the unified-back-forward-button is always prepended to the nav-bar. The old back-button and forward-button are *not* removed but will be ignored by FF3 and clean up by any future customization by the user.

This will attempt to migrate even for new profiles which seems wrong. It won't cause any issues, but just slow down the startup on first run. If you added this preference to the prefs.js default file then that would solve it, there may be a better way though.

No need for this test I think (or the equivalent below). GetResource always returns a resource, unless it fails in which case it will throw.

Do we need the indexOf("home-button")? Can the home button really appear on both the navbar and the bookmarks bar?

The hasArcOut is a wasted operation really. Just use GetTarget and compare the result to null.
Alternatively it would be more efficient to just pass in the old target to save us a further operation, but that complicates the migrateUI function a little, get gavin's opinion on how much we want to save time here.
Nit: indentation is wrong.

This is fine as is really, just a few minor changes to make. I would like to see whether we can avoid hitting the migration path completely for new profiles though.

Additional comments:

No need to do this twice. Just get the resource at the beginning and use it twice.

> +    if (target instanceof Ci.nsIRDFLiteral)

I don't think you can do it like this, it isn't guaranteed to work. You have to QI the RDF node - and catch the exception that might happen.

> +      if (aDataSource.hasArcOut(aSource, aProperty)) {

I would rather check whether oldTarget is not null and do Unassert then. After than I would do Assert if we have a new value and drop Change entirely.

> +  _setPersist: function bg__setPersist(aDataSource, aSource, aProperty, aTarget) {

I would make aTarget a string - for consistency, since _getPersist returns a string.

Generally: looks fine, the points above are only nits.

That's incorrect.  XPConnect QI's it for you when you use instanceof, and adds the appropriate methods and properties to the object if it succeeded.  instanceof is also faster last I knew.

While it is true that Change is only going to be marginally faster than Unassert followed by Assert, I think the use of Change is good and explains what is going on.

Forgot to mention this, should do it, unless you are switching to passing in the old value in which case you are probably better off sticking with literals all round.

It's not needed on trunk (as of bug 414864), but it's needed for going back to branch.

I added a pref to firefox.js which defaults to a migration version of 1, which will skip the migration attempt on new profiles.

I'm not sure I understand this. Won't the pref be there after updating from Firefox 2 to Firefox 3, before you get the chance to migrate the UI?

Yeah, Mossop caught this too. I need to add the pref to prefs.js

New patch coming up
Created attachment 301219 [details] [diff] [review]
v5 - same patch with no default pref, but a dirty flag used to flush datasource

I was not happy with any default pref solution, used to *not* execute the migration code in a new profile. I added a flag to skip flushing the datasource in a new profile (where the targets would be null).

Any Ts hit will only be a one time hit and hopefully it will be small. Let's get this reviewed and try it out.

The problem we have is that we will hit the path for migration == 0 for two distinct cases. For profiles pre-Firefox 3, and for new profiles. Right now that is not really an issue, the code deals well. Come Firefox 5, who knows.

If it isn't going to be changed please at least add a comment explaining that we go through migration for both of those cases.

Why? What's the use case for migrating a new profile? Is there a bug in our default toolbar setup that we should fix?
To be clear, the current patch doesn't do any actual "migration" for new profiles. It does check to see whether it needs to, but since neither of the checks will return true, dirty will be false and it will effectively be a no-op.

I suppose we could potentially add this pref to prefs.js? I don't really like that approach because it relies on us copying over that pref file for all new profiles (which I'm not sure is guaranteed, and IIRC bsmedberg wants to get rid of it).
Just to be sure of what I'm doing before I re-twiddle the docs -- we've rolled
out the changes to the element IDs and that's a done deal?

No done deals. We want to take mfinkle's patch which will remove the need to change the IDs, after which we will revert the ID changes (which would leave them the same as in Firefox 2).
OK, I'll temporarily leave in the doc changes on the element IDs then and revisit those once this patch is in, if it goes.  Thanks.

Missing one personaltoolbar ID change in browser.js's updatePersonalToolbarStyle.

>+  _migrateUI: function bg__migrateUI() {

>+    if (migration == 0) {

Add a comment explaining that this codepath should always migrate pre-Fx3 profiles to whatever the current state is? If we change the default toolbar layout and still care about users updating directly to that version from Firefox 2, we'll need to change this code.

>+      // get an nsIRDFResource for the PersonalToolbar item

>+      if (target && foundHome && target.indexOf("home-button") == -1) {

>+        dirty = true;

You can move up the foundHome check to avoid the GetResource and _getPersist calls if it's false, right?

>+  _getPersist: function bg__getPersist(aDataSource, aSource, aProperty) {
>+    var target = aDataSource.GetTarget(aSource, aProperty, true);
>+    if (!target)
>+      return null;
>+
>+    if (target instanceof Ci.nsIRDFLiteral)
>+      return target.Value;

nit: these checks are redundant, null will never be instanceof nsIRDFLiteral.
