“ubufox” 0.9.3-0ubuntu0.10.04.3 source package in Ubuntu
ubufox (0.9.3-0ubuntu0.10.04.3) lucid-security; urgency=low * Fix LP: #918052 - Error migrating extensions to be in-profile - Migrate the addon to a profile addon even if there is a system-wide addon with the same version. It seems this got broken during some recent refactoring. - For newly installed addons, display the new addon tab, otherwise the addon stays disabled ubufox (0.9.3-0ubuntu0.10.04.1) lucid-security; urgency=low * New upstream release v0.9.3 - Support Firefox 9 and 10 (LP: #904594) * New upstream release v0.9.2 - Bump maxVersion to 8.* * New upstream release v0.9.1 - Rename AboutHome to AboutStartpage, and have it handle about:startpage now (to not conflict with the new about:home handler in Firefox) - Set default home page to about:startpage - Add support for the XPCOM changes in Gecko 2.0 - In the restart notifier, don't hardcode a list of filenames for different browser versions, but just use MOZ_APP_LAUNCHER instead. This will indirectly fix LP: #511250 and should prevent it from happening again - Merge the plugin finder code from Firefox 4. This now uses AddonManager, so the MinVersion needs to be bumped - Drop the FF2.0 specific code - Drop the AddonsOverlay and associated code, this hasn't worked for several releases since we started using software-center, and nobody really noticed so far. We can reimplement this at a later date if wanted, but it throws JS exceptions when loading in FF4.0 now - Specify for the extension to be unpacked by the installer. Without this, the prefs aren't used - Get the distributionID field for the pfs URL from the preferences, rather than hard-coding a value - Fix LP: #579091 - ubufox interferes with toolbar buttons for other add-ons Don't initialize or assign any value to gBrowser in alternatePlugins.js. It runs in the context of browser.xul, so gBrowser will always exist once the browser window has loaded - Fix LP: #333799 - set a default dictionary language - Don't duplicate preferences that we're already setting in Firefox - Update Japanese(ja) translations (LP: #746538) - Fix LP: #750305 - Don't hard-code links and configs for each release. Rather than doing this manually for every release, we add a dist.js with distro information (populated at build time with lsb_release) and just do all this automatically. - Fix LP: #752364 - Plugin Finder Service never finds anything. Use the release info in dist.js to construct the URL, now that this got dropped from Firefox - Fix LP: #728826 - Update icons to new versions. - Drop the pluginGlue.js module. This didn't work, as we can no longer use a modules registerSelf method to use nsICategoryManager at startup, due to the XPCOM registration changes in Firefox 4. Instead, add category entries with the chrome.manifest - Fix LP: #709125 - User agent doesn't include Ubuntu in it so apt.ubuntu.com doesn't work. We add an extra X-Ubuntu HTTP header in requests to apt.ubuntu.com, rather than send this information out in every request in the UA string * Revert an upstream commit to look in the new location for the restart required trigger - add debian/patches/use_old_restart_notifier_file.patch - add debian/patches/series * Drop debian/patches/02_fix_about_home.patch - not relevant now * Backport a change from trunk to support installing system-wide extensions in to the users profile, where they will get updates directly from upstream - add debian/patches/addon_installer.patch - update debian/patches/series * Fix LP: #809601 - do the ubufox => xul-ext-ubufox transition. I'd already uploaded a backport of this previously to the firefox-stable PPA, which causes upgrades to versions without this transition to fail. In addition to this, it is required for lucid -> maverick upgrades to work * Move ubufox in to the Firefox application directory * Improve the addon installer module -- Chris Coulson <email address hidden> Wed, 18 Jan 2012 17:37:42 +0000
