Currently on trunk when viewing the remote desktop pane, you will see an area of the previously viewed page (behind the Sync related dialog).

Not reproducible on Aurora (8.0a2 [08-30]) nor Beta (7.0-build2).

Regression from bug 681356?

Froyo is not affected?
Comment 8 Matt Brubeck (:mbrubeck) 2011-09-23 08:22:42 PDT
Drive-by review comment: In the Froyo theme we put a background on the .autocomplete-items class instead.

Patch v2

I should have looked at this harder. We're trying to show a message in this case, but the sync message pane isn't themed on honeycomb or gingerbread. This just copies over the theme code from Froyo.

I'll attach some screenshots I took on desktop or both. In both, I've forced the theme to show a message by adding an else statement if "engine" does not exist here:

we should show a message in that case and probably show a button(/link?) ("Set up sync", or if sync is set up but disabled "Enable sync"). I'll file a separate bug for that.
