* 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) - Gaia: 588a3e02c4ace3b3341ba1f6bb7274120b53b2b3 - Gecko: http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-aurora/rev/031270be3702 - BuildID 20131212004003 - Version 28.0a2
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.
Severity: normal → enhancement
Summary: [Email][V1.3][POP3] The email app keeps loading while the free space of internal storage only has 10 MB → [Email] The email app synchronizes regardless of available disk space and does not handle IndexedDB running out of space
Got it! Thanks!
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.
