Bookmarklets don't work in Fennec anymore. 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Save a bookmarklet from e.g. "invert lightness" from this page I couldn't find a way to do this from Fennec because it won't show the context menu when click-holding on a button, so the easiest way is to do this on desktop Firefox. Simply drag a bookmarklet to the bookmarks toolbar.
2. Use Firefox sync to get this new bookmark on Fennec.
3. Load a plain web site in Fennec.
4. Select the newly bookmarklet from the awesome bar's Bookmarks section.

Expected results: the colors of the website should be inverted.
Actual results: nothing happens.

This works fine in the classic/XUL version of Fennec.
Richard, are we supporting bookmarklets in sync for native?

Product: Fennec Native → Mozilla Services
QA Contact: general → android-sync
Version: Trunk → unspecified
If the bookmark gets to Fennec -- which apparently it does -- and you can see the snippet of JavaScript in the bookmark UI under the title, where the URL should be, then Sync has done all it can.

Sync doesn't give one jot about what's in the title and URI fields.

This is likely a regression caused by bug 703378.

Tested by syncing a bookmarklet from desktop. Since there's no way to add a bookmarklet with the existing UI, I'm not sure how to make a test case for this.

Can you use the LocalDB API in robocop tests? If so, you could probably just call addBookmark with javascript: url, right? testBookmark selects a bookmark (although that's broken right now with the UI changes going on), but maybe we could do something similar for this. We'd have to somehow check to make sure the js executed though, maybe we can be clever with our bookmarklet code. (I assume you were talking about how to add an automated test ;)

Use "input" -> "userEntered"

Lets add openUserEnteredAndFinish

>diff --git a/mobile/android/chrome/content/browser.js b/mobile/android/chrome/content/browser.js

use "userEntered" in the JSON

>              | Ci.nsIWebNavigation.LOAD_FLAGS_ALLOW_THIRD_PARTY_FIXUP

For simplicity, lets use a local variable for "flags" and use a simple if-check:

let flags =  Ci.nsIWebNavigation.LOAD_FLAGS_ALLOW_THIRD_PARTY_FIXUP;
if (data.userEntered)

let params = {
  flags: flags

r+, but throw up a new patch so we can see the changes

timed test utility

Moving this to Joel since it is a utility. It looks OK to me, but I wonder if Robocop already has this kind of feature.

test case

You should probably make sure the bookmark is removed from the database before moving on. Use another direct DB cursor to clear the DB.

Also want Geoff to take a look too, in case I missed something.

Review of attachment 599348 [details] [diff] [review]:

There are two base classes: BaseTest and PixelTest.  This might be better served in FennecNativeActions, but how it is used seems just fine in BaseTest for now.

Yes - it's used in setUp(). Note that I just moved that line, not added it (I changed the imports to be in alphabetical order).
