Description Heiko Tietze 2018-09-14 06:42:19 UTC
Though bug 118881 has been solved for now the usability has room for improvement. In particular loading the thumbnails is way too slow. So the suggestion is to deprecate and to remove finally the integration of Mozilla Persona and to provide only the locally installed version. That means we have to submit a couple of nice images and make it extensionable.

LibreOffice Personas Theme

Have some preinstalled Themes would be the first step, the second step would than be themeas as extension via the extension webpage of LibreOffice. But one step after another.

In the uploaded file are the open issues of firefox personas from design perspective was shown.

missing background image
  1. Sidebar
  2. Menubar, dropdown and dialogues  
  3. Statusbar 
  4. tabbed toolbars 
has to use personas theme background. I would prefer to have for 1. 2. and 3. 4. an separate image file (more image files has the benefit of use different layouts or not, depend on the designer)

wrong color usage
  a. drop down arrows in toolbar
  b. >> in toolbare
should use font color or an additinal defined color

icon theme
  I.  add an option which icon theme should be used at least light/dark icons
  II. if LibO can use svg icons the icons could be colored via the personas theme

I think the thumbnails loading process can speed up. It is too slow because there is a crazy amount of HTML fetch&parse stuff going on under the hood.

We should definitely deliver a small set of finely crafted personas with LibreOffice, but we should also think twice before deprecating the Mozilla side for good since there are more than 400k personas there, each for a different taste.

From my point of view I would prefer to ship 6 preinstalled personas and than have the additional option to use the personas from the firefox extension webpage (as long as it is possible)

I already work on personas themes for preinstallation.

Sounds like bug 113385. And while at it, it might be that the same type of issue occurs here: bug 45307 and bug 91237.

With the patch https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/61449/ this request becomes obsolete. The Firefox personas are retrieved fast enough for acceptable usability and further work is planned.
