With the new Australis theme, the Web Developer toolbar becomes a blank toolbar.

1/ install web developer toolbar extension
2/ click on the web developer toolbar toggle button to display the toolbar

expected result:
Webdev toolbar displayed with all of its icons and menus

actual result:
The toolbar is blank

I suspect this needs to call registerArea... but thinking about this... I wonder if we could

(a) make registerToolbarNode imply a registerArea call and take the options off the toolbar itself (ie defaultset attribute, type: toolbar, legacy: true)
(b) allow registerArea to be called again afterwards and override the existing properties (and rerun buildArea for all the registered nodes if necessary).

This way, AFAICT existing add-ons wouldn't normally need to do anything.

Jared, what do you think? Crazy or great idea? :-)

Getting some more opinions on comment #1, I hope... I think this will reduce the headaches for add-on developers and will be even nicer than 'just' allowing registerToolbarNode to be called before registerArea. :-)

Hm, yea, that could work.

This is fairly crazy, but surprisingly passes all the extant tests. Obviously, it needs tests itself, but I'm crashing so I'll write those tomorrow.

fix Australis' CustomizableUI to have better interaction between registerToolbarNode and registerArea,

Blair, can you give this approach a quick look and tell me if it looks vaguely acceptable? Also fixes bug 940443 and bug 941561 - although I just realized I left out the legacy setting in registerArea itself. Meh, not sure how to do that because forcing everyone else to pass legacy: false seems dumb, too. The solution in the patch seems workable to me.

Now with less brokenness, and a test.

gPendingBuildAreas - much of the code dealing with this isn't specific to toolbars. The only time any code should explicitly refer to "toolbars" is in registerToolbarNode() and setting the default type in registerArea().

Move to just under where you set the default type, to potentially avoid a tiny amount of work (and clump the type/placements code together).

I can confirm that the Web developer toolbar is back to normal with today's build, thanks.
Verified as fixed on latest Firefox Aurora (build ID: 20140226004001).
