Description

***Overview Description: 

  The 'More Info' button in the Smart Browsing preferences panel needs to launch
the following URL (noted in URL field above):
http://info.netscape.com/fwd/rlstatic/http://home.netscape.com/escapes/keywords/index.html

This has already been implemented on the mozilla side in bug 50873. All that
is required is a simple textstring change. From Blake, " note that the only change that has to 
be made is to smartBrowsingURL."

adding nsbeta3 keyword for triage. *note this needs to be reassigned to appropriate
eng as well.

cc jglick since she's doing text changes.  Jennifer, all you have to do is 
change the URL after smartBrowsingURL= in brand.properties 
mozilla/xpfe/global/resources/locale/en-US to the netscape.com one that 
Claudius mentioned.

I was a little mistaken.  smartBrowsingURL= won't be in the file at all.  just 
add this to the bottom of that file:

smartBrowsingURL=http://info.netscape.com/fwd/rlstatic/http://home.netscape.com/
escapes/keywords/index.html

Sorry I wasn't able to fix this one. This is in the Netscape tree only, and I 
haven't learned how to do that yet. :-(

Is this button "More information"  supposed to go to www.mozilla.org for mozilla 
builds and to the url above for commercial builds? Clicking on this button in 
mozilla builds takes me properly to mozilla.org. But in commercial builds, 
clicking  on this button gives me the following JS exception,

JavaScript error:
 line 0: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8
0004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIStringBundle.GetStringFromName]"  nsresult: "0x80
004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)"  location: "JS frame :: chrome://communicator/content
/pref/pref-smart_browsing.xul :: moreInfo :: line 145"  data: no]

There is a smartBrowsingURl entry in 
mozilla/xpfe/global/resources/locale/en-US/brand.propertis. But there is none in  
the ns tree counter part. Where should this entry go? in the mozilla tree or 
commercial tree? (Looks like commercial from blake's comments above). Is this 
button working at all for anybody in the commercial build.

Radha: yeah, to fix the exception all you should have to do is add this to the 
bottom of brand.properties in the comm tree:

smartBrowsingURL=http://info.netscape.com/fwd/rlstatic/http://home.netscape.com/
escapes/keywords/index.html

vrfy fixed using 2000.09.29.xx-n6 [opt comm branch bits] on linux, mac and
winnt. (bug 52372 still occurs, however.)

adding vtrunk kw to check the commercial trunk bits (um, sometime?) not flipping
the Verified bit here since the checkin occurred during the grey-period around
branching --however, if this fix *definitely* got in *before* the branch, feel
free to mark this verified.
