bump Firefox / Thunderbird version on Mozilla 1
.8 branch to 1 .5
I need to bump the app version strings to 1.5 on the branch at a suitable time. Also need to remove all of the hard coded beta 2 labels. Ref: Bug 310615 to see what we did for beta 2.
I thought RC1 was going to be 1.4.2 and not 1.5 (at least that's what I had heard from some)...
RC is intended to be the first Release Candidate, if no new issues arrive, it would be released as Firefox 1.5. So the app version has to already be set to 1.5 before we release RC1
Oh I was the one that started that false rumor about 1.4.2 in my first comment in 310615 but I was wrong.
Actually, http://developer.mozilla.org/devnews/index.php/2005/08/16/extension-version-changes/ says 1.4.1 for RC1 (which was before b2 was added which took 1.4.1 and in theory moved RC1 to 1.4.2. "Release candidate(s) will check for version 1.4.1 (and 1.4.2 if necessary). The final release of Firefox and Thunderbird 1.5 will check for extension compatibility with version 1.5."
We should do this sooner rather than later.

Note to Self: Benjamin reminded me that we need to coordinate this change with the AMO build automation.

I've verified these changes with official branding and a aself built installer. The one thing I'm not sure about here is the installer string change. This reverts us back to the pre-beta installer where the first screen says: "You are about to install Mozilla Firefox." We had been hard coding extra text at the end so you know what version you were really installing: "You are about to install Mozilla Firefox 1.5." We may actually want to show the version string in this sentence. We could leave the 1.5 hard coded string in installer.inc. If we tried to use variable substitution on the string, we would have l10n impact. I'll let ben and others figure out what they want for this installer string here.
same changes for Thunderbird.
both patches have been checked into the branch.
