<formletter>It has been decreed (or requested at any rate) that our release (read non-debug) builds must not print anything to the console when the app is running. See bug 76720 for details. I have done a preliminary tree scouring and created mini-patches for each module that has bare printfs. These patches are not all inclusive as I didn't even think about xul/js output until post scour so module owners & peers will still need to scour their modules themselves as well as make sure the preliminary patches do not break anything.</formletter>
Sorry about the additional spammage but I should clear up a couple of things before everyone starts replying. 1) I'm just the messenger. Discussions outside of the specific module/patches should be discussed in the parent bug ( bug 76720). 2) I have no intention of checking in the patches as is; that's why the bugs are assigned to someone else ;). 3) The patches are the result of a far & wide-reaching grep across the entire tree. They may affect some cases that are not even used and they are far from optimal. 4) Some platforms/ports will not need the printfs shutoff as they use other mechanisms to stop the printfs. That's fine. Note it in the bug and close it as invalid(?). Depending upon the platform/port some people may still be interested in removing the overhead from the printfs.
76720 is targetted for 0.9.1, setting same.
moving to 0.9.2. I have no problem with this making 0.9.1 since it looks like such an easy fix, but it's not a stopper if it doesn't.
lets keep dribbling these [console] bugs into the tree as quick as we can, but they shouldn't hold up or block 0.9.1 so moving the target milestone to 0.9.2.
moving to 0.9.3
QA contact updated
the printf has actually been removed so this patch is no longer necessary. The uriloader doesn't spew anything to the console now.
