Description Mike Conley (:mconley) 2012-08-16 07:26:37 PDT
When the auth window first comes up, and token negotiation begins, the spinner appears to be misaligned (at least on Windows).

See screenshots.

Instead of playing with margins it's better to use background-position. Then also the URL doesn't jump.

I haven't built with this to see what these look like, but I trust your eye. r=me! Thanks Richard!

FYI the root of this bug is that the spinner icon is 16x16 which is smaller than the 22x22 size of the security level icon(s), hence the need for it to be positioned so that the transition between icons does not cause too much of a visual jump.

Hrm - I probably should have tried the patch before giving it my r+. The spinner is still misaligned in today's Daily.

See upcoming screenshot.

Still misaligned
Comment 9 Richard Marti (:Paenglab) 2012-08-17 07:19:58 PDT
Hmm, I checked with my updated Daily and the change isn't in it :/ Still using the margin.

Could this be because of the DONTBUILD on check-in?
Comment 10 Mike Conley (:mconley) 2012-08-17 07:32:56 PDT
Turns out I didn't see the fix because this patch didn't land until *after* today's Daily was built. *sigh*.

Sorry about that. Local testing confirms that this patch is indeed awesome.

a=me, since it seems small and innocuous, and lining things up is one of my crazy-making things…  ;)
