Recent revisions

40. By Chris Coulson on 2012-10-12

* New upstream release
  - see LP: #1080211 for USN information
  - Make the startpage work again in Firefox 17
  - Fix a crash that occurs when the apt cache is broken
  - Fix a whole bunch of memory leaks in the plugin installer
  - Don't poll for file changes, but use inotify instead to determine
    when we need to display a restart notification

39. By Chris Coulson on 2012-06-27

* New upstream release v2.1.1
  - Drop the alternative plugin selector, as it depends on a patch that
    we no longer carry in Firefox

38. By Chris Coulson on 2012-04-24

* New upstream release
  - Update compatibility for Firefox 13 (LP: #987262)
  - Update startpage URL (LP: #985862)

37. By Chris Coulson on 2012-03-02

* New upstream release.
  - Drop Ask.com searchplugin
  - LP: #951250
* Refresh debian/patches/addon_installer.patch
* Move back out of the application directory now that LP: #915895 is fixed.
  The original solution didn't really make much sense
  - update debian/rules

36. By Chris Coulson on 2012-01-18

* Fix LP: #918052 - Error migrating extensions to be in-profile
  - Migrate the addon to a profile addon even if there is a system-wide
    addon with the same version. It seems this got broken during some recent
  - For newly installed addons, display the new addon tab, otherwise the
    addon stays disabled

35. By Chris Coulson on 2011-12-21

* New upstream release v0.9.3
  - Support Firefox 9 and 10 (LP: #904594)
* New upstream release v0.9.2
  - Bump maxVersion to 8.*
* New upstream release v0.9.1
  - Rename AboutHome to AboutStartpage, and have it handle about:startpage now
    (to not conflict with the new about:home handler in Firefox)
  - Set default home page to about:startpage
  - Add support for the XPCOM changes in Gecko 2.0
  - In the restart notifier, don't hardcode a list of filenames for different
    browser versions, but just use MOZ_APP_LAUNCHER instead. This will
    indirectly fix LP: #511250 and should prevent it from happening again
  - Merge the plugin finder code from Firefox 4. This now uses AddonManager,
    so the MinVersion needs to be bumped
  - Drop the FF2.0 specific code
  - Drop the AddonsOverlay and associated code, this hasn't worked for
    several releases since we started using software-center, and nobody
    really noticed so far. We can reimplement this at a later date if wanted,
    but it throws JS exceptions when loading in FF4.0 now
  - Specify for the extension to be unpacked by the installer. Without this,
    the prefs aren't used
  - Get the distributionID field for the pfs URL from the preferences, rather
    than hard-coding a value
  - Fix LP: #579091 - ubufox interferes with toolbar buttons for other add-ons
    Don't initialize or assign any value to gBrowser in alternatePlugins.js.
    It runs in the context of browser.xul, so gBrowser will always exist
    once the browser window has loaded
  - Fix LP: #333799 - set a default dictionary language
  - Don't duplicate preferences that we're already setting in Firefox
  - Update Japanese(ja) translations (LP: #746538)
  - Fix LP: #750305 - Don't hard-code links and configs for each release.
    Rather than doing this manually for every release, we add a dist.js with
    distro information (populated at build time with lsb_release) and just
    do all this automatically.
  - Fix LP: #752364 - Plugin Finder Service never finds anything. Use the
    release info in dist.js to construct the URL, now that this got dropped
    from Firefox
  - Fix LP: #728826 - Update icons to new versions.
  - Drop the pluginGlue.js module. This didn't work, as we can no longer
    use a modules registerSelf method to use nsICategoryManager at startup,
    due to the XPCOM registration changes in Firefox 4. Instead, add
    category entries with the chrome.manifest
  - Fix LP: #709125 - User agent doesn't include Ubuntu in it so
    apt.ubuntu.com doesn't work. We add an extra X-Ubuntu HTTP header in
    requests to apt.ubuntu.com, rather than send this information out in
    every request in the UA string

* Revert an upstream commit to look in the new location for the restart
  required trigger
  - add debian/patches/use_old_restart_notifier_file.patch
  - add debian/patches/series
* Drop debian/patches/02_fix_about_home.patch - not relevant now
* Backport a change from trunk to support installing system-wide extensions
  in to the users profile, where they will get updates directly from upstream
  - add debian/patches/addon_installer.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Fix LP: #809601 - do the ubufox => xul-ext-ubufox transition. I'd already
  uploaded a backport of this previously to the firefox-stable PPA, which
  causes upgrades to versions without this transition to fail. In addition
  to this, it is required for lucid -> maverick upgrades to work
* Move ubufox in to the Firefox application directory
* Improve the addon installer module

34. By Chris Coulson on 2010-07-28

[ Philip Muskovac ]
* Disable Report a Problem menu for stable release (LP: #557240)

[ Chris Coulson ]
* Backport change to fix URL template used for about:home; this fixes the
  problem that Yahoo about:home cannot be reached; also we get rid of the
  redirect everyone is getting on about:home to the Google/ url (LP: #606728)
  - update components/aboutHome.js

33. By Benjamin Drung on 2010-04-15

* Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.4.
* Drop XS- prefix from Vcs-Bzr.
* Drop zip from Build-Depends.
* Use new features of mozilla-devscripts 0.16.
* Simplify debian/rules.
* Refer to versioned license file.
* Add Homepage field.
* Add set -e and debhelper token to preinst script.
* Move configuration file from /etc/firefox-3.0/pref/ubufox.js to
  /etc/xul-ext/ubufox (LP: #493805).
