Created attachment 8360598 [details] screenshot showing page after returning to Fennec After loading marketplace.firefox.com in Fennec, if I press the Android device's Home button to go to the homescreen and then return to Fennec, then Marketplace's content disappears and is replaced by a blank gray background with a little bit of Marketplace navigation at the top (specifically: the search bar and the categories bar). I see this with the latest Fennec nightly as well as older Fennec nightlies (and various custom builds I've produced). It isn't clear whether it's a Fennec draw/paint bug or a Marketplace bug (f.e. a reaction to some event like pageshow that fires when I return to Fennec), but I'm filing it in the Marketplace product for now with some Fennec hackers cc:ed. The bug is particularly noticeable on Fennec builds that have synthetic APKs enabled, since the synthetic APK install process switches away from Marketplace to a native Android "confirm install" dialog, and the bug occurs when you switch back. But it happens even with synthetic APKs disabled, and it happens on builds from before I landed support for synthetic APKs last week, so it is *not related* to synthetic APKs.
Starting with Synthetic APKs this got worse as you can see it more often: Steps: 1. Install any app 2. After the installation success screen (Open/Done buttons screen) press back to get back in Fennec The marketplace will be blank. A refresh page is needed.
This got bumped to P1 and a target milestone added by cvan, but no-one took it work on it. Would someone be able to do that?
Sometimes the categories landing page is also blank upon loading.
I ran into the cause.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=917592 Regressed due to the fix that allows the Install/Launch to refresh state after a user installs/deletes an app. Fireplace rebuilds the page every time the user navigates away and back (via tab switch or app window change), but doesn't re-fetch deferred content. The behavior should change to only rebuild the install button rather than rebuild the whole page on visibility change.

Is that related to this bug? Marketplace seems to be having numerous issues on Firefox Mobile for Android.
I was not able to reproduce the issues described in original scenario or comment #2 . Ioana , can you please confirm that the issue is not reproducible anymore in order to close the bug?
Yes, the issue is not reproducible on latest Nightly 02/14 using LG Nexus 4 (Android 4.4.2) with different apps installed.
Thank you Teodora! Verified as fixed.
