Description (last modified by greiner)


Our minimal issue reporter won't create screenshots at this point, yet it's important to filter list authors to see what exactly the user saw on that page.

See also ui#26.

What to change

Implement spec#122 and consider the following notes:

  • Use tabs.captureVisibleTab() to make a screenshot of the page. This shouldn't require any new permissions, but this functionality only works on the active tab. So we have to call that method immediately when "Report issue on this page" is clicked, before the issue reporter is opened. We have to make sure there isn't a race condition if we open a new tab immediately after calling tabs.captureVisibleTab().
  • We should use <canvas> to scale down the screenshot (neither side should exceed 800 pixel) and reduce color depth (2 bits per channel). This is to reduce the amount of data, but also to protect us against copyright infringement claims.
  • Sending the screenshot should be optional but enabled by default. There should be a step after issue type selection where the screenshot is shown to the user, along with a checkbox saying "Attach a page image to the report."
  • Ideally, the user should also be able to remove some areas of the screenshot and mark others.
