User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050716 Firefox/1.0.6 Using a MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH firefox CVS tree pulled today, the file mozilla/browser/base/content/browserconfig.properties is installed as a symlink that points to the file in the build dir. This does NOT happen in 1.0.6 under identical build conditions. A 1.0.6 install includes the actual file. The exact install command from the build log for the 1.8 branch build is ** /sw/src/fink.build/firefox-trunk-1.1-11/mozilla/config/nsinstall -L /sw/src/fink.build/firefox-trunk-1.1-11/mozilla/browser/base ./content/browserconfig.properties ../../dist/bin ** This install command is not seen in the 1.0.6 build log. The relevant file seems to be mozilla/browser/base/Makefile.in, which was changed from using a perl preprocessor to config/nsinstall around the time this started (see bug 282057). Reproducible: Always
Created attachment 193980 [details] [diff] [review] makes browserconfig.properties be a file and not a symlink changes the dangling symlink to be an actual file
Should point out that this is in both trunk and in MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH builds.
