Description Philipp von Weitershausen [:philikon] 2011-08-12 12:27:59 PDT
In bug 664792 we got rid of heartbeat-triggered syncs because regular syncs are nearly as efficient as doing heartbeats. However, we forgot to drop the singleDeviceInterval to the heartbeat frequency which was 1 hour.

At which point... why not just use idleInterval?  But... minimal is good for Fx7

Yep. Also, still useful to keep them separate for QA because it allows us to test different code paths.

Requesting approval for Aurora. The last follow-up for bug 664792 (I swear!). Risk is minimal, it just changes a pref value that we forgot to adjust.

I backed this out of mozilla-beta due to bug 598774:

I left in in aurora8 and mozilla-central for now. If you disagree, please email me directly or

Anything QA should be looking for with this backout, str, etc?
Comment 11 Philipp von Weitershausen [:philikon] 2011-09-15 21:42:31 PDT
I disagree with this backout, will follow up as advised in comment 9.
Comment 12 christian 2011-09-27 10:08:53 PDT
I backed this out of beta8 as well.
Comment 13 christian 2011-09-27 12:26:29 PDT
Actually, because of the investigation in bug 598774 we are going to re-land this on beta8.
Comment 14 Philipp von Weitershausen [:philikon] 2011-10-12 14:41:19 PDT
Reopening this as we've decided to back this out altogether (see bug 694149). Will be WONTFIXing once bug 694149 lands.
Comment 15 Philipp von Weitershausen [:philikon] 2011-11-01 09:37:19 PDT
WONTFIXing this as planned (comment 14)
