Description

5 years ago
* Description:
  This might be a corner case. But, we still need pay attention on this bug because vendors shipped many low-end devices. The devices are easy to run out of storage. For example, the OTA package is easy to occupy the internal storage.

* Reproduction steps:
  1. Generating some fake data to fill the following folder and reserve 10 MB free space
     - /data/local/webapps/
  2. Adding a POP3 email account on the email app
  3. Go to inbox to synchronize mails 

* Expected result:
  A warning message pops up to inform user that the device ran out of internal storage

* Actual result:
  The email app keeps loading.

* Test build:(V1.3)

We lack the ability to detect when internal storage space is low; our first hint that anything is wrong is when IndexedDB starts failing to commit things.  We regrettably also don't handle that.

This isn't something that can/will be addressed in the v1.3 time frame.

triage: not blocking 1.4 -- we do have mitigation in place for all account types to avoid filling up the storage. We are in need of better platform support to make this feasible.
