There is a problem with Thunderbird welcome page in branded builds in Fedora. Instead of showing: Welcome to Thunderbird! Mozilla’s Thunderbird is all yours - your language, your add-ons, your email... it shows: Welcome to Shredder! Congratulations! You've downloaded or compiled Shredder. This means that you've volunteered to... This is due to different build id between binaries from mozilla and binaries we build on Fedora. Fedora's build welcome page URL: http://live.mozillamessaging.com/thunderbird/firstrun?locale=en-US&version=3.1&os=Linux&buildid=20100622085750 Mozilla's build welcome page URL: http://live.mozillamessaging.com/thunderbird/firstrun?locale=en-US&version=3.1&os=Linux&buildid=20100608021630 Reproduce steps: To obtain welcome page url use in error console following command and open returned URL: Components.classes["@mozilla.org/toolkit/URLFormatterService;1"].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIURLFormatter).formatURLPref("mailnews.start_page.welcome_url");
We need to add that to our check list. Canadians are on vacation today, so don't expect a fix today but probably tomorrow.
This was because the redirects were still triggered by build id from the RC period. Now fixed, all redirects with version=3.1 (except for rc1 buildids) should correctly redirect.
