We created alert notification awhile ago to handle custom progress indicators in Alerts. This was later added as a platform ability and (I think?) back ported to work on older platforms through the compatability layer. At this point, I think we can remove AlertNotification and instead switch to using Notification.Builder: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/support/v4/app/NotificationCompat.Builder.html
Hello, I am a complete newbie to open source software, and I was wondering if you could tell me how to get started. I have a working knowledge of Java, and would love to help however possible. I am also currently learning Objective C and iPhone development. Please point me in the right direction! Thanks a lot!

You should follow the directions here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Fennec/Android After you do that, wesj can help advise you on how to approach this bug. Feel free to join #mobile on irc.mozilla.org to ask questions (or just to hang out). There are also some handy links on this page: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Get_Involved
Hello, I hope I'm not taking up valuable time here, but I don't really understand how the build works. Do I just copy and past the code from the build instructions into Terminal? I have no experience with Terminal commands, and I'm not really sure if I'm doing anything correctly.Could you point me to some resources, or tell me what I should learn before attempting this? Thanks!
Just some further information: I have XCode all set up, and I am familiar with it since I develop iOS applications, but I can't seem to understand the instructions after that.
Sorry for the delay. Yes, you should just be able to follow the instructions here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Fennec/Android#Mac_OS_X I would not try to use XCode for this. The Firefox build system doesn't integrate well with IDE's. I have a feeling it will get in the way. In fact, if you're very new to developing like this, I'd recommend building desktop Firefox first: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Simple_Firefox_build Those instructions are quite a bit easier to follow, and once you've got that done, Fennec is just a few extra steps on top of it.
Created attachment 782218 [details] [diff] [review] WIP I'd also say, I can mentor on this bug, but its not a great first bug for new contributors. This is a WIP I had to do this. Its mostly done but needs testing on some different devices. I glanced through bugsahoy and didn't see a ton of good "find your way around the code" bugs, so I'll try to make some time monday to look through the backlog for things.
I think this bug is related if not duplicate of bug 909932
