+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #504750 +++ [quote] Bug 481494 added optional support for splash screens on slow devices, but didn't integrate with the build system for shipping the bitmap used. Bug 504750 adds support for a splash.bmp in the build system that's used when a splashscreen is enabled in Firefox Mobile. Bug 502526 will update the splash screens with polished artwork, this patch just includes the Firefox-branded splash vlad made (attached in Bug 502526), and a couple placeholders for the unbranded and nightly branding.

From Bug 503469: package splash.bmp on --enable-splashscreen http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/167d89514f81
Toolkit and Firefox pushes were to 1.9.2+. Also, it seems this feature may currently be coded for WinCE only...
It's not clear if this is something we want at all, and it's surely not of enough priority to track on any radar, so canceling the request.
I'm moving this bug to SeaMonkey, for the following reasons: - Bug 481494 doesn't need any work copying to the comm-central build system for it to be used; comm-central's configure will pass the --enable-splashscreen, or alternately adding the appropriate variable in suite/confvars.sh will do what's necessary from a core code perspective. - Bug 504750 & co appear to be app-specific build config changes - Thunderbird is unlikely to want this unless there's a reason comes out that a splash screen is really required, which I don't think so especially as Firefox hasn't come up with one yet.
Just for reference, starting point: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/log?rev=splash -> http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/31fd342897c7 http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/6004e947157b http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/167d89514f81 http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/c4678bf7b3fb
Probably WONTFIX since splash screen support was removed from mozilla-central with the removal of WinCE support.
For reference: The legacy WinCE splashscreen code was removed in bug 653333, so any approach here (if this is still desired) will need to take that into account. Or as Philip said, perhaps just WONTFIX.
