Firefox Packaging

September 17th, 2009

I recently landed some changes (on trunk and 1.9.2) to the way Firefox packaging works. There are two immediate consequences of this you should be aware of:

  1. Mac builds now use a packaging manifest just like Windows and Linux. If you add a file that you intend to ship on Mac, it needs to wind up in a packaging manifest. (bug 463605)
  2. All theĀ  packaging manifest files have been combined into one single file: browser/installer/ This should save everyone some time and annoyance. (bug 511642)

These changes had no effect on applications other than Firefox.
