New preferences code

For those of you keeping up with nightly builds of Sunbird, tomorrow’s build will contain a whole new architecture for preferences. Thanks to the hard work of lilmatt, Sunbird is now using the newer preferences code that debuted in Firefox and Thunderbird 1.5. There are still some loose ends to tie up though, so now’s the time when an extra close eye by our community can help. If you notice particular preferences that aren’t working, or other errors in tomorrow’s nightly build, please file a bug in Bugzilla.


  1. Im not sure who i should direct questions too, so i decided to go here. I was curious if there is a possibility of an address book like the one in ThunderBird being incorperated into Sunbird. For those of us who dont need a mail client this would be very helpfull feature to have.

  2. What is the name of the file that is the theme file e.g. “.xpi”. Because I am thinking of making my own theme.
