Description

17 years ago
Rearchitecting the failover mechanism entails:

1> Download a redirect.ini
        i>   Domain from site selector
        ii>  Server path from redirect section

2> Parse redirect for the domain matching the index of the selected site.

3> Generate one URL per xpi in idi for SmartDownload to use. 
	If redirect.ini found and parsed successfully:
      	Append xpi names to the redirect.ini's domain-specific global URL.
      Else if no redirect.ini or parse failed:
           Append xpi names to the global URL in the config.ini.

* This eliminates failovers.
* This allows flexibility for editing the redirect.ini on a per server basis.
* This reduces errors when matching localized site names in the config.ini with
  those in the redirect.ini.
