Here are my mock ups for the multi-edit feature that I am planning to enhance for bug 412002. I have attached the mockups with additional comments under the bug number for the community and Mozilla people to review before I begin any major implementation. This is also gives me a chance to understand what the requirements are and to determine what it takes to provide a solution.The following are a list of first impression plans for providing this bug fix:
- Find out the function that displays the properties form when (i) a bookmark item is selected and (ii) when a bookmark folder item is selected.
- Find out the function that takes care of persistence management.
- Modify the code to include the properties form to be enabled when more than one item is selected. Then update the way the persistence management layer so that it includes the latter operation.
- I am not sure how identifying two or more items selected works, so I am going to need some additional research in this field if upon finishing item 1 of this list provides no certain solution.
