Created attachment 614334 [details] logs when loading about:home Fennec/14.0a1 2012-04-10 Device: Motorola Droid 2(Android 2.3) I have not been able to isolate steps to reproduce this but from time to time the Fennec profile gets in a state where the about:home is cut off above the addons section. The page will be displayed this way until the user clears the data creating a new profile. The issue has been seen on different phones on different builds over the last week but we were unable to isolate a reproducibility pattern. Also it does not matter if there is or isn't a "Tabs from last time" section. Looking through the logs no errors could be seen when loading about:home
What do you mean? Can you show a screenshot? Remember, if there are no add-ons, the add-ons section does not appear. Currently, there are no recemmended add-ons. When the app checks for the latest list of recommneded add-ons and none are returned, the add-ons section is removed. That is happening now because of bug 744555.
Yeah, this is a dupe of bug 744555. It's not cutoff. There are just no add-ons to show.
Created attachment 614343 [details] logs from the update process I have been able to reproduce the issue 3 consecutive times following the steps: 1. Install an older version of Nightly( I used the one from yesterday) 2. Look for updates and download them. 3. Install the updates. 4. After updates install choose the "Open" button. Results: The recommended addons section will be missing. After a clear profile the updates are displayed. I am not sure this is a dupe of Bug 744555 as the recommended addons section is displayed after a profile clear - and after a profile clear there should not be other addons installed.
when you clear a profile, Fennec uses a hard coded list of recommended add-ons to display on about:home. These are not already istalled add-ons. They are add-ond you could install. Periodically, Fennec will ask the AMO server for a new list of recommended add-ons. If none are recommended, an empty list is returned. Fennec will use the new list to display add-ons on about:home. If the list is empty, we show no add-ons. That appears to be what is happening in your screen shot.
