[Regression] Find in Page does not scroll down when hitting the Down Arrow from the findbar


(Firefox for Android Graveyard :: General, defect)

Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: anamaria.moldovan, Unassigned)


Build ID: Mozilla /5.0 (Android;Linux armv7l;rv:2.1) Gecko/20110317
Firefox/4.0b13pre Fennec /4.0 (RC1 Build 2)

Device: HTC Desire (Android 2.2)

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to “about:” system page
2. Bring up the “Find In Page” toolbar by tapping on the page favicon and then
“Find in page”.
3. Enter string “mozilla” in the search field.

Expected result:
As you enter the string, character by character, the page scrolls along to the
location of found text which is highlighted.

Actual result:
No panning occurs. The first string "mozilla" is highlighted, but tapping the
down arrow does not pan the page to the second string "mozilla". One has to
dismiss the VKB to see the highlighted string.

Note: regression from bug 628633
I could not reproduce this on my nexus one
I can't reproduce this either. The "about:" page is so small, that there is no scrolling needed at all for the found text. Anna, could you perhaps give a screenshot of the issue?
Please see the following video:
Ah, ok, I see what you mean. So the findbar UI is obscuring the found text.
Yes, but it's strange indeed, because I haven't been able to reproduce this issue on Motorola Droid 2 either !
I think we knew that was a possibility and that's why the findbar was
originally transparent. Not sure we'll try any fixes other than making the findbar a bit transparent.

This is still reproducible on:
