As it was brought to my attention, that the yield should not operate withou=
t the function* syntax in a regular function.
=20
With that said again:
=20
The ES5+ welcome the yield operand, not the function*
=20
Her is my argument for the proposal that will follow:
=20
=20
function r(){
var i =3D 0, a =3D [0,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1];  =20
return (function (){return a.pop();});
}
=20
var rr =3D r();
=20
function y(){
let i =3D 0, a =3D [0,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1];
while(a){
yield (a.pop());
}
}
=20
let yy =3D y();
=20
function* g(){
let i =3D 0, a =3D [0,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1];
while(a){
yield (a.pop());
}
}
=20
let gg =3D g();
=20
print("return: " + rr() + " " + rr() + " " + rr() + " " + rr() + " " + rr()=
+ " " + rr() + " " + rr() + " " + rr() + " " + rr() + " " + rr() + " " + r=
r()  + "\n" +
"yield: " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.=
next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.nex=
t() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + "\n" +
"function*: " + JSON.stringify([gg.next(), gg.next(), gg.next(), gg.n=
ext(), gg.next(), gg.next(), gg.next(), gg.next(), gg.next(), gg.next(), gg=
..next()]));
=20
/*
return: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 undefined
yield: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 undefined
function*: [{"value":1,"done":false},{"value":2,"done":false},{"value":3,"d=
one":false},{"value":4,"done":false},{"value":5,"done":false},{"value":6,"d=
one":false},{"value":7,"done":false},{"value":8,"done":false},{"value":9,"d=
one":false},{"value":0,"done":false},{"done":false}]
*/
=20
The above works great... and got me speculating that the yield contain a sc=
ope of its own... if what I display above should not fully work... it cause=
of the change to the language that new possibility are possible that wasn'=
t before.
=20
If this is non - valet ES6 generator function... Consider adding this featu=
re to the spec:
=20
function y(){
let i =3D 0, a =3D [0,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1];
while(a){
yield (a.pop());
}
}
=20
let yy =3D y();
=20
print("yield: " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.=
next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.nex=
t() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next() + " " + yy.next());
=20
//yield: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 undefined
=20
the above is much better and allow list to be done to get the value. Consid=
ering the way to the function* way, this way wins. I'm not suggestion to ge=
t rid of the function* but if this way is an... additional feature only exc=
lusive to that browser who allow it, then it should be included into the sp=
ec.... Especially when that browser is the one that is supporting this mail=
ing list.
=20
Ones people realize that one can use the yield operand -in this particular =
browser... which you are working with-- without the none ES5 syntax like fu=
nction*, they will wonder and question; why can't this be done in all brows=
er? Why is the browser that is help writing the spec isn't including this f=
eature into the spec as well? -and for those who was told this type of synt=
ax could not be done will be outrage--I though this wasn't possible, why is=
this allow in the browser that is helping the most to write the spec but n=
ot in the spec? They will question, so rightful should. In this plantation =
it doesn't return an object but a value, so it's much concise.
=20
There are still some question that desire to be answer?
=20
Why:
=20
In some case when yield let say... this:
=20
yield 1;
}
why.next();why.next();
/*
Exception: [object StopIteration]
*/
=20
What is that empty -stringify it--exception object?
=20
Why isn't null or undefined, or even the false value return instead?
=20
An exception being throw denote that the problem is my serious, and in most=
case, out of programmer hands to handle and most be dealt with via implant=
ation means. I request that is be change to a false value being thrown rath=
er than an exception for the none asterisk syntax style generator. And of c=
ourse that the none asterisk style syntax be adopted into the spec as well.=

Communication by Firefox devs to add-on devs
The time has come for the developers of Firefox to start communicating with the developers of add-ons. As a case in point: Recently the classic.manifest file in fx3 has had a large number of override codes added to it that reassigned filenames from example.png to example-aero.png. Suddenly, all third-party themes in Vista are now missing buttons in a number of places - some of them not easy to spot (e.g. - the wrap icon that shows up only when you reach the bottom of a page in a page search). If one of the themers had not had a user using Vista who communicated with him, and if the t...

Firefox OS App Accounts Managed By Firefox Accounts
Hi Sync! tl;dr I want to allow users to setup email and calendar accounts with Firefox Accounts. How can we make that happen? My name is Gareth Aye and I work on the productivity group within gaia. We maintain the email and calendar apps. One core experience that we've built into both apps is account authorization. We'll likely always support an option to authorize email and calendar accounts in isolation from within the apps, but it'd be awesome if we could offer a more unified experience for users who want it. There are lots of service providers like Google, Yaho...
