* Update globalmenu-extension to 3.2.7
  - Fix for LP: #1035305 - Crash when switching apps back to Firefox
    with Firebug installed

97. By Chris Coulson on 2012-07-26

* Update globalmenu-extension to 3.2.6
  - Partial fix for LP: #1025011 - HUD search crashes Firefox when Firebug
    is installed. Make all menu nodes reference counted, and hold a strong ref
    when dispatching events, in case the event results in the removal of
    the target node. This fixes the crash, although the Firebug submenus may
    flicker or display duplicated entries

  - see LP: #798484 for USN information

* Update globalmenu-extension to 1.0.6
* Switch to mozilla-beta
  - update debian/mozclient/firefox.conf
* Drop the ability to build with an external xulrunner, and all the packaging
  complexity which went with it
  - update debian/apport/firefox.in
  - update debian/firefox.install.in
  - update debian/firefox.lintian-overrides.in
  - update debian/firefox.sh.in
  - update debian/mozconfig.in
  - update debian/rules
* Build language packs directly from the firefox source
  + Fixes LP: #294187 - Firefox Locales should install locale specific
    search plugins
  + Rip out the bits to create a en-US.xpi
    - update debian/rules
    - remove debian/translation-support/install.rdf.in
  + Include compare-locales FIREFOX_5_0b1_BUILD1 from
    http://hg.mozilla.org/build/compare-locales. It's needed for merging
    en-US strings with incomplete locales
  + Pull l10n data in to tarball from bzr
    - update debian/mozclient/firefox.conf
  + Configure build for creating language packs by configuring with
    "--with-l10n-base="
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
  + Store the list of locales to ship, and provide a way of automatically
    generating that list and the control file entries from the upstream
    source. Also provide a way to blacklist languages. We map languages
    to package names using langpack-o-matic (and also get descriptions
    from there too)
    - update debian/rules
    - add debian/locales-supported
    - add debian/control.langpacks
    - update debian/control
    - add debian/locale-blacklist
    - add debian/refresh-supported-locales.pl
  + Add common-build-indep hook to build the translation xpi's

    searchplugins in to the correct debian packages
    - update debian/rules
    - add debian/get-xpi-id.py
  + When rebuilding debian/control in the clean target, fail the build
    if the control file was out-of-date. This ensures that we don't
    accidentally drop language packs, and forces me to maintain an
    up-to-date control file in bzr
    - update debian/rules
  + Apply vendor patches to localized searchplugins too
    - update debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-amazon.patch
    - add debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-baidu.patch
    - update debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-google.patch
* Ditch all the version-number based branding selection. Do this all
  purely on the channel name now
  - remove debian/firefox-beta.desktop.in
  - remove debian/firefox-nightly.desktop.in
  - remove debian/firefox-unofficial.desktop.in
  - rename debian/firefox-final.desktop.in => debian/firefox.desktop.in

  - update debian/firefox.sh.in
* Drop patches merged upstream:
  - 64-bit-be-fix.patch

  required by Test Pilot now
  - update debian/firefox.install.in
* Backport patch from mozilla-central to fix powerpc build failure
  - add debian/patches/powerpc-build-fix.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Support storing language descriptions in locales.unavailable. This
  will be useful for translations which disappear temporarily
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/refresh-supported-locales.pl
* Add languages that are currently dropped in FF5 (compared with FF4) to
  locales.unavailable. Having transitional packages now will make
  transitioning easier later on if they come back
  - update debian/locales.unavailable
* Refresh debian/control to pick up transitional packages
* Don't bundle our vendor preferences in the omni.jar. This needs a distro
  patch and it turns out that Firefox does still read prefs from
  $LIBDIR/defaults/pref, so just install it there instead
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/firefox.install.in
  - remove debian/patches/install-vendor-prefs.patch
  - update debian/patches/series
* Add a global pref file again (/etc/firefox/syspref.js) and add the
  necessary preinst/postinst magic to move the old file there if it
  was previously customized
  - add debian/syspref.js
  - update debian/firefox.install.in
  - update debian/firefox.links.in

92. By Chris Coulson on 2011-05-17

* Update globalmenu-extension to 1.0.5:
* Fix LP: #783790 - Firefox 4 crashes when opening Selenium IDE window.
  Ignore signals for menus without popups
* Fix LP: #783856 - Firefox 4.0.1 Crash Report
  [@ uGlobalMenuBar::~uGlobalMenuBar ]. Don't bail out of building a menu
  when encountering a non-XUL element. Also toughen up destructors to not
  crash if the menuitem never initialized properly
* Fix LP: #783997 - Firefox 4.0.1 Crash Report
  [@ uGlobalMenuBar::ShouldParentStayVisible ]. Don't crash if the window
  gets destroyed before the panel responds to RegisterWindow

91. By Chris Coulson on 2011-05-03

* Fix LP: #770719 - Dutch localization doesn't include spell-checker.
  Look in /usr/share/hunspell for the system dictionaries on maverick
  and later, rather than /usr/share/myspell/dicts. This got dropped
  somehow in natty
  - update debian/rules
  - update debian/firefox.links/in
* Hopefully fix LP: #643899 - Firefox sending header "Accept-Language:
  chrome://global/locale/intl.properties" because the intl.accept_languages
  preference is messed up. Drop a patch which causes the preferences
  system to save a user preference when changing a preference value to equal
  the system default value (and revert to the original behaviour where the
  preference is just discarded). This should hopefully stop Firefox Sync
  from breaking localized preferences where they haven't been modified by
  the user, but does regress LP: #548866
  - update debian/patches/series

90. By Chris Coulson on 2011-04-22

  - update debian/patches/mozilla-kde.patch

[ Chris Coulson ]
* Fix LP: #766151 - popuphiding and popuphidden events aren't dispatched
  when a menu is closed, leading to exceptions being thrown in
  browserPlacesViews.js (visible from the error console)
  - update globalmenu-extension to 1.0.2
* Fix LP: #744580 - Firefox doesn't autoscroll when selecting content
  downwards
  - add debian/patches/fix-selection-drag-autoscroll.patch
