Description

18 years ago
When finding 4x profiles to migrate, we look in SystemFolder:Preferences: See:
http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla/source/profile/src/nsProfile.cpp#1770. Running
under OS X, that folder location is meaningless. It is possible under OS X to
specify that ::FindFolder(...) should look in the Classic environment on that
machine. There, we would find :Preferences: and thus 4x profiles.

Patch to allow Classic Prefs folder to be found under OS X

Migration works with this patch because, when asked for the Preferences folder
under OS X, it will look in the Classic domain. I just added this behavior for
prefs because I don't think we should do this in general.
