The uninstall red cross shows up for installing app whereas it should not


(Firefox OS Graveyard :: Gaia::Homescreen, defect)

Gonk (Firefox OS)
Not set

* install app in
* when downloading, long press on its icon on the homescreen

* all the removable apps gets a red cross, but not the big self updating app, because it's currently downloading

* it gets its red cross, but it doesn't do anything.

Additionaly, I see this in the logcat :

E/GeckoConsole( 2492): [JavaScript Error: "NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER: Component returned failure code: 0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER) [nsIDOMMozURLProperty.createObjectURL]" {file: "app://" line: 289}]

I'm not sure if the red cross should appear as soon as the app is correctly installed; I'd say ideally yes, but I don't really mind.

Awkward, but an edge case. Definitely not going to block.

Blocks: app-install
Details: check for the downloading case when creating the "options" span that displays the uninstall button and add the button when downloading is finished.

As far as I remember, while downloading, if the user clicks on red cross, they could cancel the download and this patch doesn't implement it. Or am I wrong? Maybe I dreamt it jejeje

I was going to ask Cristian about that :)

I think this bug is not current anymore and should be closed/wontfix. The real bug was that there was a red cross but it didn't do anything. Now it works correctly: we can uninstall an app while downloading. I don't remember which bug fixed that but I remember it was a gecko bug.

Cristian, what do you think about closing this bug wontfix ?

Thanks Mihai anyway for your patch, keep the good work ! I'll be happy to review another patch !

Thanks for your work Mihai !

Next time, when the bug is old, you should definitely ask on the bug if it's still current before working on it.
