Description

8 years ago
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:2.0b5) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0b5

Steps to reproduce : 
1. Go to http://www.getpersonas.com
2. Select the theme and click the "wear it" button
3. Repeat the step# 2 for more 30 themes

Actual Result : After installing 30 or more themes, they are not sorted alphabetically. Sorting by name also does not sort the themes alphabetically.

Expected Result : 
After installing the themes, they have to be sorted alphabetically.

Sorting the themes by "Last updated" in Themes tab of Add-ons manager and then clicking on Sort by "Name" sorts the themes alphabetically. Able to reproduce in Firefox 4.0beta4 also.

30 items are the maximum number of backgrounds we support. Can you please post a screenshot with 30 backgrounds installed and one more with an additional background installed? Thanks.
At what point are you opening the add-ons manager in those steps?

At that point were they correctly sorted?

I'm not sure if this is the part of the scenario aravindm is running into, but I  found that if the Addons Manager>Themes window is open while adding new Personas the Personas added after that point will stay in the order you added them, until you reload or close/reopen the themes window. 

I experienced this with only 5 Personas installed.

Additionally, changing the Name sort order switches the order the group of newly added Personas are in, but in added order, not alphabetical, which would give the appearance of the sorting being totally broken. Refreshing the themes window makes it work like it should.
Aravind, is this still an issue for you in the latest beta 7 release?

The only issue I can see is the wrong sorting when the first letter is not a capital one. This is handled by bug 619288.
