Description Wesley Johnston (:wesj) 2012-06-08 13:04:10 PDT
Search suggestions changed something so that now we return an AwesomeBarItem rather than a Cursor when we call getItemFromPosition(). I'm filing this to track, but with the refactoring in bug 759041 this will be cleaner to fix, so I'm planning to just fix it there.

When I long tap on an entry from Top Sites I get errors like this (one error for each long tap):

E/GeckoAwesomeBar( 9831): item at 0 is not a Cursor
E/GeckoAwesomeBar( 9831): item at 1 is not a Cursor
E/GeckoAwesomeBar( 9831): item at 2 is not a Cursor
E/GeckoAwesomeBar( 9831): item at 3 is not a Cursor

Firefox 16.0a1 (2012-06-19)

The respective patches of bug 759041 were already landed some time ago, even though that bug itself is not fixed yet. Therefore this works now.
Comment 4 Adrian Tamas (:AdrianT) 2012-07-26 01:56:26 PDT
This is still an issue on Firefox Mobile 15.0b2 build 1 on HTC Desire running Android 2.2
Comment 5 Peter Retzer (:pretzer) 2012-07-26 02:48:10 PDT
Right, the patches landed on m-c when it was 16 and were not uplifted to 15. 
Wes, is it possible to uplift those patches to Beta?
If we do that though, we probably also want to fix bug 777649 for Beta.
Comment 6 Wesley Johnston (:wesj) 2012-07-26 09:15:13 PDT
The fix in 16 isn't something I want to push forward. I'll put together a separate patch for 15 if we want it?
Comment 7 :Margaret Leibovic 2012-07-26 09:35:33 PDT
I think this is definitely something we need to fix for 15, since it's a regression.

Patch for beta

Since this will go straight to beta with no testing on central, thought more eyes would be better. This is pretty similar to what's on central though, without the refactor. Tested locally tapping on different entries in all three panes with and without search suggestions.

I'll ask for approval once the reviews are done.
Comment 9 Peter Retzer (:pretzer) 2012-07-26 10:58:16 PDT
Wes, is bug 777649 also present in 15? Did you fix it with your patch here? If yes please remember that the other channels need a fix for it as well.

Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): Search suggestions
User impact if declined: No context menu on awesomescreen
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): Patch on m-c is very similar, but not exactly the same. Tested locally.
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Low risk. Basically adds a new path and a new getter method.
