Closed Bug 827460 Opened 8 years ago Closed 8 years ago
Copy/paste of "About Firefox" window's build version text no longer works when the window is closed
STR: 1. Open "About Nightly" window 2. Select the build version text (by double-clicking or click/drag-selecting with mouse) 3. CMD+C to copy the selected text 4. *** Close the "About Nightly" window (with ESC, CMD+W, or clicking the window close button) 5. Try to paste the copied text with CMD+V RESULT: Nothing happens because the text was not actually copied to the clipboard! However, if you skip step 4 (i.e. if you leave the "About Nightly" window open when you CMD+V) then the text will be copy/pasted as expected. I have only test Mac OS X 10.8.2. This bug is a regression in Nightly 20.a1 (2013-01-05). Here is the changelog from 01-04 to 01-05: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=801ba75ac563&tochange=d8ca3e1c469e
I bisected m-c tinderbox builds to get this narrower regression window: https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=38407b98003b&tochange=259982750c29

This bug seems to be an incompatibility with private window bug 815847 and the Test Pilot 1.2.2 addon. I bisected m-i tinderbox builds to get this even narrower regression window: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/pushloghtml?fromchange=2453fdb37bf4&tochange=16c6a3cf8a77 If I disabled the Test Pilot addon, then copy/pasting from the "About Firefox" window (after the window has closed) works correctly.

Are you opening the About dialog from a private window?

Also, it would be nice if you could bisect further in this range. This might be coming from parts 3, 4 or 5 in that patch set.

Hmm, that means that we probably send last-pb-context-exited too early, which causes the clipboard to get cleared. Josh, can you think of why that could be? Thanks for investigating this, Chris!
Chris, I just landed bug 827188 on inbound which changes the code in question somewhat drastically. Can you please retest with that patch and see if you can still reproduce? Thanks!
Ehsan, I tested inbound and the problem seems to have been fixed.
Great, thanks a lot! Let's call this a dupe for the lack of a better term.
