the error log shows: Timestamp: 7/18/2012 2:03:34 AM Error: ERROR addons.xpi: Error processing file changes: TypeError: bootstrap is undefined Source File: resource:///modules/XPIProvider.jsm Line: 2412 Could not read chrome manifest 'old jar absolute path'. <- for every extension the a bunch of these for many resources of various extensions: No chrome package registered for chrome://tabmixplus/content/overlay/browsroverlay40.css restarting Fx once or twice, fixes the problem, but this worked flawlessly before 15
This is caused by a disabled firebug 1.10, without it, or if enabled, there is no problem after copying
But Fx 15 is a factor, no problem in 14
(In reply to al_9x from comment #1) > This is caused by a disabled firebug 1.10, without it, or if enabled, there > is no problem after copying I don't understand this. If Firebug is disabled how it could cause the problem? Does it mean that it's Firefox issue? Honza
Yes, the bug description clearly indicates that extensions.ini didn't get updated - that would be a Firefox issue.
I don't understand either, but it's consistent. @Wladimir - I cced you because you recently blogged about restartless extensions. This seems to have something to do with that. In fact the same thing happens with a disabled abp instead of firebug. It's as if Fx tries to call into the disabled restartless extension on first start after copying, expecting it to do something, which it doesn't.
Does this happen with 16 or 17?
Nevermind, looks like this is some kind of regression caused by bug 744833
How are you copying the profile files? Is there any chance that prefs.js isn't included in the copy, since that would probably cause this issue.
everything is copied
This happens whenever there is a disabled restartless add-on in the profile.
Created attachment 644021 [details] [diff] [review] patch rev 1 Silly mistake here, if the add-on is disabled then it won't be in bootstrappedAddons so everything goes horribly wrong.
On inbound: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/ef2285d68618 Once it passes a few days on nightly I'll see about getting it pushed to aurora and beta.
Comment on attachment 644021 [details] [diff] [review] patch rev 1 [Approval Request Comment] Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): bug 744833 User impact if declined: it's a rare case so few users will see the issue, but it is also a very safe and simple fix. Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): m-c for a few days, it's not a common path though so the automated testing are our main source of testing here Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): extremely safe String or UUID changes made by this patch: none
Comment on attachment 644021 [details] [diff] [review] patch rev 1 [Triage Comment] Since we're still early in the beta cycle, and this is a low risk FF15 regression fix, let's take the fix even though it's likely to be a rare user issue.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0 Verified in Firefox 15 beta3 after copying profile with Firebug disabled. No extension.log.
