An alternative would be to change the test so it quits early instead of failing if plugins are disabled by default. Not sure whether that would be more or less likely to get review than a change to xpcshell.ini...

My guess is that a change to xpcshell.ini that simply disabled the test for Thunderbird would be the easiest sell.

Disable tests that need plugins

This will disable the tests that are failing when bug 1138154 lands. This is an m-c patch.

You probably don't need to disable this test unless you plan to change the pref("plugin.defaultXpi.state", 2); in the patch in bug 1138154 (that keeps plugins bundled in addons enabled).

So the issue here is that the test is asserting that the default plugin state is not disabled - but the test is also testing other things, e.g. ensuring that the pref works. I'm not sure I see the value in the | defaultState == DISABLED | assertion, that could probably be removed and let the test continue to test the functionality of the pref on all apps.

I have little history here though, I think :bsmedberg would be the better person to ask on what our policy is WRT thunderbird and plugin tests

I'm ok with these skip-ifs. I'd prefer to keep the default-state check for Firefox since we don't have any other check for this fairly important setting.
