Description Kartikaya Gupta ( 2012-06-11 11:32:20 PDT
Regression from bug 747883; the URL fixup stuff inadvertently treats page reloads as "spurious addition"s to the URL.

Noming this as it blocks bug 759678, which in turn could fix bug 721523, which is a blocker.
Comment 4 Johnathan Nightingale [:johnath] 2012-06-11 11:53:37 PDT
Not a blocker because bug 721523 is going to be wallpapered over AMO side, aiui. Would like, though (and feel free to approvalnom if appropriate).

[Approval Request Comment]
Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): bug 747883
User impact if declined: on page reload, the page might jump around during load, since we don't suspend viewport updates and user interaction.
Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): on m-c for a day
Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): mobile-only. potential risk of either regressing bug 747883 or not fully fixing the issues described in "user impact if declined"
String or UUID changes made by this patch: none

Also note that the patch on bug 759678 will be ineffective for page reloads without this patch.
