## Environment : Gecko http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-b2g18_v1_0_1/rev/f1e39ce2164b Gaia 26b20494ef6b443250a94bc5a4e961777ab7592c BuildID 20130227070200 Version 18.0 Unagi ## Repro : 1. launch camera 2. go to video mode 3. record video 4. long tap on the home button 5. close the camera app ## Expected : no red dot in the notification bar ## Actual : red dot remains in the notification bar. ## Note :
I believe this is by design. The lingering (but dimmed) red dot is meant to be a user-friendly hint that someone was recording video recently, possibly without the user's intent.
Reproduced in unagi and new buri phone. Even after you killed the video app, the red dot is there

John, Please work on this

Please see comment 1 above; this is _by design_ and intentional, to allow the user to see that the video recorder _was_ recording recently--possibly without user intervention. If we're going to change this, we'll need UX input.
OK, closing it. I am just curious about how much time is "recently", I've seen it around for at least 1 minute...

Yeah, that's what's defined in the code right now: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/blob/master/apps/system/js/statusbar.js#L74
Is that a usual case? I never saw that design in other os. If we are really going to do so.... We have to at least display/explain it in notification bar or something. Otherwise, it looks so strange.
No other OS does it, AFAIK--it's unique to Firefox OS.
