App Actor doesn't work with non-oop apps
For some unknown reason Webapps actor `getAppActor` request never respond without dispatching any exception. The message manager code most likely fail silently because frame are not OOP. This bug disallows connecting a toolbox to any non-oop app like system app, browser or keyboard.
Paul noted in my dupe (bug 913215) that he was able to get: * Settings * Built-in Keyboard to work. Settings seems to work intermittently for me, but I have never gotten Built-in Keyboard to debug. Paul, you are still able to debug the keyboard? I am currently running the 2013-09-09 Keon nightly unmodified, which seems to generally work, but maybe something extra is needed to get it working like you were able to.
Settings is a regular OOP app, so I'm excepting it to work just fine. With my custom builds using master, I get a consistent behavior where settings do work and keyboard doesn't.
This bug is specific to non-oop apps. Let's move this discussion back to bug 913215.
Non working apps: - system app - browser - keyboard
I can tell, for sure, that this used to work.
It ends up failing because of a conflict between ContentTabActor being defined here: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/b2g/chrome/content/dbg-browser-actors.js#102 and the expected one defined here: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/devtools/server/actors/childtab.js#23 I think that would be simplier to choose two distinct names for now, and may be later merge these two classes, once we start offering actors for browser tabs...
