* Description:
  This problem happens on v1.2 Buri build.
  As current specification, if FxOS detects an available WIFI, the FxOS will pop-up a notification.
  The message show as below.
  - "The network XXX was found. Join network?" 

* Reproduction steps:
  1. Open the Settings app, enable Wi-Fi.
  2. Click the captive portal Wi-Fi.
  3. Long press the Home button, close the Browser app.
  4. Open the Settings app, and disable Wi-Fi.
  5. Enable Wi-Fi, then press Home button.

* Expected result:
  The notification "The network XXX was found. Join network?" should be presented.

* Actual result:
  No notification pop up

* Reproduction build:(V1.2)

Chuck, we need your help for this bug.

I observes that in such condition, detection fail is caused by connection lost or connection timeout.
After a little chat with schien, he said that captive portal detection is not 100% accurate, and wifi connection speed and stability affects the detection a lot.
Also I found some network with captive portal doesn't require login every time. For such case, there's no require to show up the browser if user doesn't have to login again.

Do you have detail on your test environment and reproduce rate?
Flags: needinfo?(whsu)
Maybe we can improve detection rate by retry when error and timeout?

f+ with the idea of retry on more scenarios, but I'm still curious about the test environment and reproduce rate that @whsu is facing.

I think you can aggregate this local function with _retryDetection() into a class function called _mayRetry(). Therefore, you can have a shorter code in this function.

Hi, Chuck,

Which detail information do you need?
Do you mean the network SSID or ?

I used "TPE-FREE" to do the test and reproduction rate is 100%.
Flags: needinfo?(whsu)
@whsu, which location you perform the test? We can verify if extending retry mechanism really helps the test environment you encountered.
Flags: needinfo?(whsu)
I did the test at 7-11 of Xinyi Sports Center.
Thanks! :)

I tests about 10 times on Unagi(because I don't have buri), and all tests are success.
But the log shows that the timeout retry only recovers one detection, the other nine detections succeeded through original path.

So retry do help, but the failure rate of first try doesn't be that high in that environment.

I think you can change the global default value.

The variable |requestDone| is useless now. You can expand this line to |self.executeCallback(true);| and remove the let declaration.

I suggest to use |else| statement instead of early return. e.g.
if (...) {

Also use |else| statement here.
