This is a tracking bug for getting mailnews to work with XULRunner on the 1.9 branch.
Before you even start doing this, you want to complete bug 377319 and its dependencies to enable *libxul* to be used. Even if you fix bug 370306 for the autocomplete stuff, you won't get much further without fixing bug 377319. Then you can consider what to do with the xulrunner specific build dependencies.
Isn't this the same as bug 306324?
I would agree with Magnus. Would like other thoughts though. Bug 370306 should be added to bug 306324's dependencies then.
(In reply to comment #2) > Isn't this the same as bug 306324? > Not quite. This bug is about building mailnews/ alongside xulrunner. In other words, SeaMonkey OR Thunderbird can use it. Bug 306324 is specifically for Thunderbird changes, i.e. those in mail/ > Bug 370306 should be added to bug 306324's dependencies then. Yes and no. Yes because it does block Thunderbird becoming an xulrunner app, but no, because its already mentioned here (and in fact, this bug should block 306324). Unfortunately all the dependencies are really a bit screwed due to different people filing different bugs at different times.
Summary: Can't Build mailnews with XULRunner 1.9 → Can't Build mailnews with libxul or XULRunner
Looking at the outstanding dependencies: bug 395701 seems to be mostly fixed (at least on Linux) bug 419592 has been worked around, so not essential bug 435881 seems (to me) to be fixed bug 452232 is still outstanding bug 591098 may have been fixed by bug 657394 bug 598646 doesn't block xulrunner builds
Is there any chance to finish this before 'dropping' Thunderbird?
xulrunner died in 2015

(In reply to Wayne Mery (:wsmwk) from comment #7) > xulrunner died in 2015 Yes. The real bug should now be getting Firefox to use Thunderbird's libxul as this will give 20k old addons a chance to work again.
xulrunner died in 2015? pity. was about to modify instantbird. seems futile, if XR is dead.
