Some of our tests depend on the native widgets appearing a certain way. Some tests are failing and/or timing out because the theme is set to a non-default theme. This custom theme is sizing some widgets inappropriately. For example, the up and down arrows on spinner control are being drawn with heights of 2 pixels each. When I reverted the theme on my Server 2012 loaner to Windows Default, the widgets were drawn correctly and many tests then ran correctly.
We are running rdp.exe with the following settings (see runtests.bat inside our mozilla-releng-tools S3 bucket): C:\rdp.exe /v:localhost /u:cltbld /pe:xxxx /f /w:1280 /h:1024 /o:"allow font smoothing:i:1, allow desktop composition:i:1, disable full window drag:i:0, disable menu anims:i:0, disable themes:i :0, disable cursor setting:i:0, bitmapcachepersistenable:i:1, disable wallpaper:i:0, audiomode:i:1, audiocapturemode:i:0, videoplaybackmode:i:1, connection type:i:6, networkautodetect:i:0, bandwidthautodetect:i:1" I suspect we'll either have to tweak these settings further or find out how to force the default theme inside the RDP session.
The theme should be unrelated RDP; it is merely a per-user configuration setting that needs to be set for cltbld. Right click on desktop -> Personalize, select "Windows" under the "Windows Default Themes".
Manually changed cltbld's default theme to "Windows" on tst-w64-ec2-001, tst-w64-ec2-002. I also merged the latest mozilla-central changes into Date to kick off some new builds which will appear here: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Date TODO: automate the theme setting on the AMI configuration.
Aaron: can you please confirm that the test results improved in TBPL with the default theme activated?
It still lights up like a Christmas Tree on TBPL, but I can confirm that the quantity of failures has dropped significantly.
