File paths on Mac OS X can take several different forms: CFM Path (Mozilla): file:///Data/Users/smfr/Documents/downloads/timerpatch.txt CFM Path (IE): file://localhost/Users/smfr/Documents/downloads/timerpatch.txt MachO Path (Chimera): file:///Users/smfr/Documents/downloads/timerpatch.txt We need to determine if we need to do any conversion for profiles moved from CFM to Macho, in places that store local URIs (bookmarks, rdf?).
Making a note of where such things occur: user_pref("editor.history_url_0", ...);

When you install a profile, Mozilla writes to chrome.rdf in the profile some information including a baseURL file URL value that points to the profile. Unfortunately, CFM and Mach compose this file URL differently; CFM includes the volume name, while Mach doesn’t.

I think bug 188263 depends on this.
Mass move of 1.3a bugs -> 1.4a.
Target Milestone: mozilla1.3alpha → mozilla1.4alpha
The problem mentioned in comment 2 has been fixed - or, at least, Mach-O builds are protected from that problem. See bug 181641. > I think bug 188263 depends on this. No, unrelated problem. So, I'm not what we're left with in this bug, since it's pretty general. Now that Mach-O nightlies are being released, if there are more specific bugs WRT this, they'll show up and should be dealt with individually.
