Description User image Teruko Kobayashi 1999-06-15 14:59:36 PDT
Tested 6-14-09 Win32 build.

After I launched Apprunner to create the profile, I put the following line under
"user_pref("nglayout.compatibility.mode", 1); "in the prefs50.js file.

   user_pref("nglayout.widget.mode", 2);

Then, I lanched Apprunner again to effect my change.
At this time, "Scheduling later attempt to set content window" error displays several times.
Apprunner will lanch, but Browser does not show anything.

This is not a prefs bug, it looks like a widget set bug.
Comment 2 User image ramiro 1999-06-16 02:44:59 PDT
not for m7, sorry

marking m8 when gfx rendered widget will be official.
Comment 3 User image bobj 1999-06-16 17:57:59 PDT
Can this be fixed sooner than M8?
I18N functionality cannot be tested without the GFX text widgets.
E.g., submitting i18n text/textarea for forms, or entering i18n data for email
I could use this pref in the 6/8 build -- but at that time buster had not
enabled text/textareas, so it only affected the other form widgets.

According to Kat Momoi, even though the browser window is hung, he can open
up the messenger windows and he can type Japanese into the header fields.

Yes, I can see Japanese input in mail headers text field, but this option
also disables any input in the mail body window. (The symptom is
the same as described in Bug 8124 which had been fixed. But with
this option on, the problem described there comes back.)
Also it is not very stable. It crashes when I try to send mail.

As announced on the news groups, gfx rendered widgets are not ready for any real
testing yet.  Please do not submit any bugs on gfx-rendered widgets until they
are officially turned on in M8.

Moving all Widget Set bugs, past and present, to new HTML Form Controls
component per request from karnaze.  Widget Set component will be retired
