Description Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) 2012-07-02 03:48:17 PDT
With the fix on bug 757340 we have introduced a new regression which is intermittent. In some cases tests fail to switch to the target pane due to a timeout in our test. We probably should increase it. How long was the waiting time before? Remus, can you please take that?
Comment 1 Remus Pop (:RemusPop) 2012-07-02 04:11:31 PDT
We were using the default timeout (5s). So the waiting time is the same.
Comment 2 Remus Pop (:RemusPop) 2012-07-02 08:08:54 PDT
The problem is that with the no animation pref of the pref pane, == 1 will always be false.
Comment 3 Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) 2012-07-02 13:01:27 PDT
Why is that a problem? We do not rely on this CSS style in our test. Why should it then affect the waitFor() call?
Comment 4 Remus Pop (:RemusPop) 2012-07-02 23:59:11 PDT
That line is the one that makes the waitFor pass on Mac when we the animation is on.
Comment 5 Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) 2012-07-03 00:37:09 PDT
We do not have the animation enabled! We pref it off before changing the panes. What we are waiting for is the target pane to be selected. There is no transition related code in here:

Please try if you can reproduce locally.
Comment 6 Remus Pop (:RemusPop) 2012-07-03 01:02:43 PDT
I was talking about this waitFor:

Yes, I can reproduce it locally.
Comment 7 Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) 2012-07-03 01:21:11 PDT
Oh wow. Yes, those to lines have to be removed than.
Comment 8 Remus Pop (:RemusPop) 2012-07-03 01:51:28 PDT
What 2 lines? Please check the whole condtion.

Those two lines you was talking about in comment 2. If you have problems please lets discuss this on IRC. This process here slows us down.

patch v1 (aurora)

The style is no longer affected if we don't have animation (which is disabled in the setter of paneId BTW) so I removed it.

patch v1 (aurora)

That works. Thanks for the patch!
Comment 12 Henrik Skupin (:whimboo) 2012-07-03 07:46:39 PDT
Given that we do not have any tests running on default only which exercise this code path, I pushed it to default and aurora: (default) (aurora)

If that works I will land on the other branches soon.
