Bug 770331 changed a pref on us, and our Mozmill tests have been busted ever since.  We need to update the pref in our version of Mozmill to fix it.

Not sure if the Mozmill guys know about this one, so I'm Cc'ing Henrik.

Patch to update our version of Mozmill

This makes the Mozmill tests pass again for me locally. I'll push to try just to make sure though.

Has the upstream httpd component gotten an update? If yes Mozmill should be updated to use the latest version of httpd.js.
See bug 776453 which is now covering the mozmill core modules. I will have an updated version of Mozmill ready by today.

Whoops - so, I made a few mistakes here:

1) I assumed we maintained a fork of Mozmill 1.5. This is not true, and we shouldn't be monkey patching our instance of it.
2) The Mozmill team is working on fixing this upstream for both 1.5 and 2.0. See bug 776453. When the fix for 1.5 lands, we should update our instance of Mozmill.

So I'm going to keep an eye on Bug 776453. When the 1.5 fix lands, I'll be backing out https://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/e76231334aff, and landing the update (after testing on Try of course).

Thanks to Sid for setting me straight on that one. :)

Mozmill test fixes for 1.5.16 update

The 1.5.16 update changes how we get access to the fake HttpServer. This patch brings us in line with those changes.

The try server build with all three of these patches can be found here:
