Details

We currently have a lot of stuff repeated across browser/app, mobile/app, suite/app, mail/app, xulrunner/app, and that doesn't make much sense to do so, especially when we need to fix all these to benefit some changes like bug 552864.

We need to have a single, shared application initialization function.

Note to self: don't forget this bit from Ted in bug 552864 comment 79:

I love this so much. Does this need to be fixed separately for other apps? I know I already fixed this for Fennec on Linux a while back, but presumably we ought to fix Thunderbird and maybe XULRunner.

While you're here you should change:

and probably:

Bug 1306327 was a first step in this direction. It's still worth doing, but I'm obviously not actively working on this.
