I am working on a function to be used by Thunderbird to launch a browser on Linux when a person clicks on a URL in an e-mail. This pointed out a problem with Mozilla's startut script that bbaetz recommended me to report: since I have thunderbird running, MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME (and maybe other env. variables) point to thunderbird's directory. Now, when I try to execute Mozilla from within Thunderbird the mozilla startup script does not update MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME since it is already set, and then tries to run mozilla-bin in thunderbird's directory instead of in mozilla's directory. There should be a flag or something to the startup script to allow me to force and update of these environment variables. Alternatively, maybe Thunderbird shouldn't set MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME at all?
the startup script really has nothing to do with Build Config. -> xp apps
I think Darin fixed this in bug 226071. Duping against that one. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 226071 ***
