1. go to the preferences and set to about:blank
2. hit back
3. explicitly quit the application by hitting the menu and selecting quit
Actual: the last page that you are on.
Note: even if you force quit the application using settings, and relaunch you still show the last page you are on.
bugs related to our Quit feature.
We use to rely on onXreExit() delaying System.exit(). Things may have changed using the window.close() approach, but not sure. We should verify that setting a preference, then quiting, results in the preference being saved.
We could wait for Gecko to quit ("quit-application") and send a "Gecko:Quit" to Java, and then System.exit(0)
You can't set the homepage right now, it fails with
E/GeckoPreferences( 717): invalid preference given to setPreference()
about:home is hardcoded. That's bug 696950.
It's a pity because about:home is completely broken. Bug 701380 will reimplement it in Java.
If you were seeing the last used page, that was the screenshot, which has been disabled a few days ago.
So I'd dupe this to bug 696950, but comment 2 mentions another bug.
Changing the summary accordingly.
Should be fixed now that "Quit" is fixed
Samsung Galaxy SII (Android 2.3.4)
So, the home page preference is still not being saved between quits...tested with 12/06 build.
That's bug 696950 - about:home is hardcoded.
Ask :bnicholson to unbitrot his patch...
