The last days I'm trying to get my profile to work with different OS. So I moved it to another partition which is accessible from Windows and Linux. Without any installed extensions/themes it's working properly. But trying to share a profile with extensions or themes, the profile sharing doesn't work. This problem still came up with the integration of the new extension manager for Firefox and Thunderbird. After analyzing the chrome registration I recognized that all extensions and themes are stored with absolute paths within the chrome.rdf. c:baseURL="jar:file:///e:/firefox/extensions/%7Bbf591015-b599-4125-9428-3cb746ddca31%7D/chrome/mnenhy.jar!/content/mnenhy/" This is definetely the wrong way cause this way deny any sharing of profiles. Instead a relative path should be used for every extension/theme. Cause we know that they are located within the profile we don't need any absolute path. IMO it should be implemented soon.
Asking for blocking Aviary1.0RC1 cause this a nasty bug which should be fixed.
