Description

14 years ago
Todays (04/12) Mac builds for the aviary apps took a big size jump.

Thunderbird added over 6MBs in size and is now a whopping 17MB disk image.

Firefox also has the same problem and is now 14 MB. 

The only change I can see that would be causing this is the xul runner changes
for the Mac yesterday (Bug #288370). Feel free to tell me I'm wrong.

I'm pretty sure that this is a packaging issue, not related to the libxul
checkin: the larger DMG files have an extra firefox-bin.elf/thunderbird-bin.elf
file, which IIRC was somehow related to talkback packaging or something like
that. See old bug 265325 from the aviary branch, where a similar thing happened.

that makes sense because I believe there were some talkback errors today on the
Mac and chase's comment in that bug said:

"Problem went away after Talkback server was fixed.  This issue
reappears whenever there is a problem with the Talkback server during the build
process."

Nice find!

this went away once talkback got fixed again.
