Description (last modified by trev)


#3208 will break object tabs because these will run in the content process now - yet they expect communicating with the prefs and ui modules (figuring out whether they are enabled). Also, they will call into the ui module to open the filter assistant when the tab is clicked.

What to change

Split up objectTabs module into objectTabs and child/objectTabs, the latter having most of the code. The tasks of the objectTabs module would be:

  • Register the user stylesheet
  • Message child/objectTabs whenever it is enabled/disabed
  • Receive messages and call into ui module whenever the object tab has been clicked

I don't see object tabs at all for Flash or Java in Firefox 38 or Firefox 45. I have a suspicion this might be my problem though, could someone else double check this?

It works for me in Firefox 42 and 45 as well as SeaMonkey 2.42 on OS X (tested on with Flash installed). What was your configuration?

I also tested the build on Ollie's laptop (Firefox 42 on Windows), works fine there as well.
