Use real computed values instead of made up ones in GroupItem.getContentBounds


(Firefox Graveyard :: Panorama, defect, P4)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: mitcho, Unassigned)


Right now we use constants to compute the available "content bounds" of group items. Let's actually compute this based on the computed styles of the group item. 

>    box.inset(6, 6);
>    box.height -= 33; // For new tab button

I'm fine with this if it's easy and doesn't have unintended consequences (see bug 597931). Otherwise I recommend we attack theme-ability after ff4.0.

mitcho, is this bug still relevant? Will it still make a good first bug? I notice that it hasn't been changed in a couple of years. Thanks!

Unfortunately Panorama (Tab Groups) is slated for removal from Firefox in the near future (bug #836758), so I don't think that this is a particularly relevant or worthwhile bug to pursue at this time. Furthermore, as no reviewers are actively engaged with Panorama, reviewing a patch to accept it may also take time. Sorry about that. :(

Panorama has been removed from Firefox 45, currently in Beta and scheduled for release on March 7th. As such, I'm closing all existing Panorama bugs.

If you are still using Panorama, you will see a deprecation message in Firefox 44, and when 45 is released your tab group data will be migrated to bookmarks, with a folder for each group. There are also a few addons offering similar functionality.

See for more info.

We're removing Panorama because it has extremely low usage (about 0.01% of users), and has a large number of bugs and usability issues. The cost of fixing all those issues is far too high to justify, and so we'll instead be focusing our time and energy on improving other parts of Firefox.
