Observer topics

The following are topics that you can observe during the course of an application. Unless otherwise noted you register for the topics using the observer service.

Application startup

These are the topics that you can observe on startup, in order of appearance.

If your component requires access to the user profile, or any services which require access to the profile (preferences, bookmarks, etc.) then a common pattern is to register with the category manager for the app-startup topic which can be done in the component's registration code, and then in that notification register with the observer service for the profile-after-change notification.

{{ Fx_minversion_note("3") }}

Topic Description
xpcom-startup Called when xpcom is initialized. Many things are not available for use at this point.

{{ Note("You must register with the category manager to receive this notification.") }}

{{ Note("The registered component is always retrieved as a singleton (i.e. getService will be used to instantiate it).") }}

app-startup General event for application startup.

{{ Note("You must register with the category manager to receive this notification.") }}

{{ Note("Prepend \"service,\" to the contract ID in the category registration to be invoked via getService instead of createInstance.") }}

profile-do-change This is fired after the profile has been selected. You will not be able to access user preferences, bookmarks, or anything that uses the profile folder until this event occurs. This occurs after any profile migration.
profile-after-change

This is fired after all the observers for profile-do-change have been notified.

{{ fx_minversion_note("3") }}

final-ui-startup

Triggered just before the first window for the application is displayed.

{{ Note("You must register with the category manager to receive this notification.") }}

sessionstore-windows-restored {{ Fx_minversion_inline("3") }}

Sent by the session restore process to indicate that all initial browser windows have opened. Note that while the window are open and the chrome loaded the tabs in the windows may still be being restored after this notification.

{{ Note("This notification is specific to the Firefox application") }}

 Application shutdown

These are the topics that you can observe on shutdown, in order of appearance.

Topic Description
quit-application-requested Something has requested that the application be shutdown. You can cancel the shutdown from here.
quit-application-granted All observers have agreed to the shutdown.
quit-application The application is about to quit. This can be in response to a normal shutdown, or a restart. {{ Note("The data value for this notification is either 'shutdown' or 'restart'.") }}
profile-change-net-teardown The network connection is going offline at this point. {{ Note("The data value for this notification is either 'shutdown-persist' or 'shutdown-cleanse'.") }}
profile-change-teardown Part of the shutdown, profile data is still available at this point. {{ Note("The data value for this notification is either 'shutdown-persist' or 'shutdown-cleanse'.") }}
profile-before-change Called just before the profile is lost. {{ Note("The data value for this notification is either 'shutdown-persist' or 'shutdown-cleanse'.") }}
xpcom-shutdown This is the end. Many things will not be available here.

Browser

These topics indicate interesting things that happen that the browser alerts you to.

Topic Description

xul-window-destroyed Called just before a XUL window is destroyed.
dom-window-destroyed {{template.Fx_minversion_inline(3)} Called just before a DOM window is destroyed.

IO Notifications

These topics can be used to watch the IO service for useful information.

Topic Description
offline-requested Called to query whether the application can go offline. The attempt to go offline can be canceled.

{{ Note("If your code chooses to cancel the attempt to go offline, it must notify the user.") }}

network:offline-about-to-go-offline Called just before all network IO is taken offline.
network:offline-status-changed Called when the offline state has changed. {{ Note("The data value for this notification 'offline' or 'online' to indicate the new state.") }}

HTTP requests

These are the topics that you can observe during a HTTP request (see Setting HTTP request headers and Creating Sandboxed HTTP Connections). Both are passed an {{ Interface("nsIHttpChannel") }} as the subject parameter.

Topic Description
http-on-modify-request Called as a http request is made. The channel is available to allow you to modify headers and such.
http-on-examine-response Called after a response has been received from the webserver. Headers are available on the channel.
http-on-examine-cached-response {{ Fx_minversion_inline("3") }} Called instead of http-on-examine-response when a response will be read completely from the cache. Headers are available on the channel.

Cookies

These topics indicate whenever a cookie has been changed (added, changed, cleared, or deleted) or its setting rejected by the browser. See {{ Interface("nsICookieService") }} for details.
