_APP _NAME to be set by configure
It would be nice to be able to set MOZ_APP_NAME in the mozconfig to avoid filesystem collisions. My specific use case is packaging Firefox in an RPM. I have been running a copy of firefox for a long time on my linux machines with this patch and --with-app-name=minefield for a couple weeks with no adverse effects.

Comment on attachment 525742 [details] [diff] [review] set MOZ_APP_NAME Not really sold on the benefits, but I'm not morally opposed to it either.

Comment on attachment 525742 [details] [diff] [review] set MOZ_APP_NAME Oh, I forgot one thing. >diff --git a/configure.in b/configure.in >--- a/configure.in >+++ b/configure.in >+if test ! -z "$WITH_APP_NAME" ; then I believe we more often write this as "if test -n "$WITH_APP_NAME";".
Nits addressed, uploaded in mercurial changeset format.
