Details

I was just investigating an issue with Thunderbird and the search configuration, and noticed that Thunderbird is attempting to access:

https://firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/v1/buckets/monitor/collections/changes/records?collection=url-classifier-skip-urls&bucket=thunderbird

This should be using https://thunderbird-settings.thunderbird.net/v1/...

This only affects Thunderbird beta currently (it will affect release as well when we get that far).

The issue is here:

https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/277ab3925eae21b419167a34624ec0ab518d0c94/services/settings/Utils.jsm#57-65

The hardcoding of Firefox there is breaking Thunderbird's setup.

Mathieu, could we add an additional check for Thunderbird there and fallback to Thunderbird's server?

Flags: needinfo?(mathieu)

a regression?

I see there's a services.settings.server pref pointing to https://firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/v1 so I suppose Utils.jsm should use that, and Thunderbird would set it's override to point to the Thunderbird server.
