layoutdebugger should be exluded from distribution

Bug #36193 reported by Bernd on 2005-04-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
mozilla (Ubuntu)
Mozilla Bugs

Bug Description

steps to repro:
open extras (german localization)/Tools find at the bottom of the menu
hit the button
See the layout debugger opening
Nearly every entry does not work!
This thing is for gecko internal development and works only reasonable in debug mode
you probably selected all extensions in your .mozconfig file but you should
exclude the layoutdebugger.

I just looked that the build logs for debian, they also have
--enable-extensions=all, which seems to me not very responsible. Enabling
options that are not tested/enabled/endorsed by the default mozilla build, means
shipping alpha grade code to the users. From a security point of view this is
not acceptable. Its a security hoole.

It is not a security issue, but I agree that if upstream does not consider some
extensions to be fit for release, we should follow their lead

mozilla is in universe. AIUI bugs in universe should be reported via malone.
