Description Jens Hatlak (:InvisibleSmiley) 2009-07-19 01:54:05 PDT
SeaMonkey 2 will support several command line options that until now only Firefox supported. The Command Line Options page should be updated accordingly.

These work now:
-profile
-no-remote
-migration
-new-tab
-new-window
-safe-mode
-install-global-extension
-install-global-theme
-override
-preferences
-setDefaultBrowser
-setDefaultMail
-offline

These do not work (yet):
-search
-options
-app

Some existing SM options do not work anymore. These include:
-turbo
-splash (listed in seamonkey.man.in but that's probably outdated/dead)
-nosplash
-quiet

At some point in time someone should modify the Command Line options page to reflect these changes. The current page does not distinguish different application versions (except for -app) so I guess we shouldn't start and instead just replace all FF/TB-only notes by the corrected statements once SM2 is near release. For now I'll just add an entry to the Command Line Options Talk page.

Not blocking SM 2 on a developer documentation update. Yes we'd very much like for it to be done, but if it was the only bug left we definitely wouldn't hold the release for it.

Meanwhile Neil took care of most items. TODO:

Should work in 2.0 (see comment 0; better check again):
-override
-preferences
-setDefaultBrowser
-setDefaultMail

Listed by Neil as working (needs checking):
-search

Doesn't this bug belong into the MDC component?

Now that we use OpenSearch does this switch work?

No. It's still FF only. Corrected MDC now and filed bug 648781.

Updated MDC a final time.

BTW: -preferences comes up with an empty Appearance pane for me on Linux.

I get that too - maybe some sort of dynamic overlay race condition :-\

Jens, Can we close this now?

I think comment 2 has not been addressed yet, but most things are done and there's no activity here, so we could probably close this if what's left is not done any time soon (i.e. leave it for a follow-up or forget about it for now).
