Epic - Firefox Start
This task is to support the Windows 8 start screen Please see the attached screenshots. - The new start screen should have the following sections: Top sites, bookmarks, recent history, and downloads - They should appear as a group of tiles/boxes for each of those sections - Initially only part of that screen should be visible and the user can swipe from right to left to start revealing the rest of the content.. (Similar to how the windows 8 start screen).
This will be implemented as an "unfiltered" state of the autocomplete screen in bug 747790. This state will be automatically be shown when: - There are no results to show in the autocomplete screen because the user hit backspace enough to clear out the bar. - When the user is on about:start (which, under-the-hood, is an alias of about:blank).
Scaffolding is now in place. Now, I've just got to implement the view code for the different start screen sections to fill the grids in with data. http://hg.mozilla.org/projects/elm/rev/1c2eaa739c94
