Description Jason Carter (reporter) 2007-12-19 05:57:53 UTC
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1) Open web browser.
2) Click on the magnifying glass icon in the bottom right corner of the browser
window.
3) From the menu that pops up, uncheck the Shockwave Flash item from the
Components menu.
4) Open application menu and choose Getting Started from the Extras menu.

EXPECTED OUTCOME: Getting Started tutorial should start, go through all
animations and end, bringing the user back to the tablet's regular home screen.

ACTUAL OUTCOME: Upon launching, Getting Started goes full-screen and starts
displaying a progress bar on a white window. When the bar is full, the screen
stays totally white, not starting the tutorial as expected. Screen stays white
until user holds the escape key which causes the Getting Started app to quit.

REPRODUCIBILITY:
(always/sometimes/once)
100%

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
Happens regardless of other software installed.

OTHER COMMENTS:
Firmware used is 2.2007.50-2. Apparently, this had been fixed in an earlier
internal Nokia build but is now broken once again.

If Flash is disabled for any reason (including automatically disabling Flash
when memory is too tight), the app won't start properly. This can cause
inexperienced users much annoyance and confusion as it appears that the tablet
has crashed or died.

If Flash is disabled, some sort of text should warn the user of how to reenable
Flash and how to exit the application.

Thanks for the bug report.

According to the internal ticket, this has been fixed in tutorial-home-applet
0.5.1.1 which will be available as part of Diablo (4.1).
Hence closing.
