Description Jesse Ruderman 2011-05-25 15:12:20 PDT
Created attachment 535201 [details]

1. Open the Web Console (Cmd+Shift+K)
2. In the Web Console's "Position" menu, select "Window".
3. Type 'a', causing an autocomplete menu to appear.

Result: Web Console is on top of the autocomplete menu, so part of the autocomplete menu is not visible.

Probably Mac-only. Not affecting Linux, I'll check my windows build asap.
Comment 2 David Dahl :ddahl 2011-05-26 11:34:59 PDT
I filed it here, but am not sure if Core:Widgets:Cocoa is the correct place for this bug
Comment 3 Neil Deakin 2011-06-09 07:13:01 PDT
You should be able to work around it by using level="top" on the autocomplete popup. That should be sufficient as the autocomplete popup itself contains no text entry fields.
Comment 4 Kevin Dangoor 2011-06-16 04:59:20 PDT
Panos is going to give Neil's suggestion a shot.

Adding tracking-firefox6 because this behavior is ugly on Macs and makes autocompletion potentially less usable than it was in Firefox 5.
Comment 5 christian 2011-06-16 14:36:29 PDT
Tracking for Firefox 6.

[in-devtools] Simple fix

The workaround works as advertised.
Comment 7 Panos Astithas [:past] 2011-06-17 01:18:42 PDT
Asking ddahl for review since IIRC he has the setup to verify the fix on Macs and make sure there are no regressions on Windows & Linux.

Have you tested this with level = floating? "top" may not be the best solution as it will float above any window in any app.

You may consider fixing this as a Mac-specific fix as well.

In case you haven't seen it...
Comment 9 Neil Deakin 2011-06-20 08:57:30 PDT
Other autocomplete panels use level="top". Since the panel should disappear when another application is made active, whether it appears on top of other applications isn't important.

Verified on Mac OS X 10.6. The issue can no longer be reproduced with the steps given in the description. The Web console does no longer overlap part of the autocomplete menu.
