This is not a netscape product, so it should not go to our homepage when you
click on the throbber or the "home" button. They should take you to mozilla.org
instead.

not critical for M3.  lets fix this the right way by making the
commercial build point at home.netscape.com.  when that happens
switch the mozilla source to point at mozilla.org.

the throbber that won the contest a while back is now the throbber.

I'm going through and fixing all the xul and the css so that the N throbber is
gone, and click on it send you to http://www.mozilla.org
Target Milestone: M4 → M5
moving this to M5.
I've got the fix for this:

now the "home" button (and "Home" under the "Go" menu) go to the value of the
"browser.startup.homepage" pref in your prefs50.js file.

Example:
user_pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://www.yahoo.com");

if you don't have that pref define, it goes to www.mozilla.org (this value is
#defined in

the throbber used to be hard wired in navigator.xul to go to home.  now the
throbber has nothing to do with home, and it goes to http://www.mozilla.org.

To change the throbber url, all you need to do is change the throbber.url entity
in navigator.xul.
