Description (last modified by kzar)


Microsoft Edge 42.17134.1.0, Adblock Plus 0.9.12

How to reproduce

  1. Install Adblock Plus
  2. Scroll to bottom of the first run page which opens.

Observed behaviour

The copyright notice text is missing from the grey footer.

Expected behaviour

That text should be populated.


  • This does not seem to be a recent regression, but without knowing the revision 0.9.11 was based upon I can't check if this is a regression since the previous release.
  • It seems that the text is not being populated for some reason, despite it working on Chrome and despite the other text on the page being populated OK.
  • See this screenshot.

There are two issues, both in js/first-run.js:

  1. The callback for api.doclinks.get("eyeo") never happens.
  2. browser.i18n.getMessage expects the arguments to be strings, but we were passing the year as a number.

This bodge of a patch got the copyright notice to display for me (Edge 42), but obviously now we need to figure out how to get api.doclinks.get("eyeo") to work properly

  • js/first-run.js

    diff --git a/js/first-run.js b/js/first-run.js
    index 513a63f..7ca9ce4 100644
    a b function initLinks() 
    5454  { 
    5555    ext.i18n.setElementLinks("fair-description", url); 
    5656  }); 
    57   api.doclinks.get("eyeo").then((url) => 
     57  Promise.resolve("").then((url) => 
    5858  { 
    59     const year = new Date().getFullYear(); 
     59    const year = new Date().getFullYear().toString(); 
    6060    const notice = document.getElementById("copyright-notice"); 
    6161    ext.i18n.setElementText(notice, "firstRun_footer_copyright", year); 
    6262    ext.i18n.setElementLinks("copyright-notice", url); 

For Geo (Edge 44), the callback is already happening, so only the .toString() part of the above patch is required.

Anyway, it seems like this is a UI issue so I've un-triaged it. Could you triage please Thomas?
