what environment variables?
Here's some to start: MOZ_NO_REMOTE - prevents two mozilla instances from talking to each other MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH - where mozilla finds plugin Linux only MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME OS/2 only MOZILLA_HOME - where Mozilla stores stuff

Summary: mozilla environment variables are not documented in help → Mozilla environment variables should be documented somewhere
Guilt guilt for me. If people bang their suggestions in here I'll make sure they reach at least paper eventually.
This shouldn't be in Mozilla Help, since that just covers the ui. Perhaps it might be something for the documentation on mozilla.org?
MASS-CHANGE: This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state. If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way. If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar). If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state. Query tag for this change: mass-UNCONFIRM-20090614
Status: NEW → UNCONFIRMED
As Stefan says, this is more suited for technical documentation (MDC), moving to relevant product/component.

I agree; this needs to be documented somewhere on MDC. Is there a place in the code to look them up?
Searching for 'getenv' and 'GetEnv' should give a majority of them, if not all. 'getenv': http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/ident?i=getenv 'GetEnv': http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/ident?i=GetEnv Not sure why, but the mixed-case version returns some non-matches. In some cases the call doesn't use a string literal, so the actual names of the variables being retrieved will be set elsewhere and further digging will be required. I'm not clear if any of them won't actually be used by an application and only appear as part of library code that's not actually reachable (eg, SQLite references a TMPDIR, but it may not be used when SQLite is used via an application?). Some of the variables are already documented under MDC: NSS environment variables at https://developer.mozilla.org/en/NSS_reference/NSS_environment_variables
