ftawell, iirc, you can't lock prefs without obfuscating them00:00
Lnsfta: I did that, according to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+bug/19033/comments/2500:02
ubottuLaunchpad bug 19033 in firefox "systemwide default startup homepage ignored" [Medium,Confirmed]00:02
Lnswhat the heck is the reason for that, anyway?00:02
ftamaybe hide the locked values from the users, not sure though00:04
Lnsso weird00:04
Lnsi wish there was some sort of control panel for global configuration of firefox00:05
Lnsi would totally pay for that00:05
ftaand remember that even locked, if the user already have set it to something else, your default won't work. you have to trash that from the user's profile00:05
Lnsuhh...so it has to be a new prof. basically?00:06
LnsIt didn't work like that in ff2 iirc00:07
ftahm..00:07
Lnsat least when it worked.. =p00:08

ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)00:10
fta"Edit all.js" looks wrong to me00:11
ftamozilla bug 44850400:11
ubottuMozilla bug 448504 in Application Update "Upgrade to FF3 and minor upgrades of FF3 cause all.js to be overwritten" [Normal,Resolved: invalid] http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=44850400:11
fta"A much better way to achieve configuration locking is to create a *new* file in00:12
fta<install_dir>/greprefs/ or <install dir>/default/pref/, so long as the name is00:12
ftadifferent from the files shipped with firefox and ends in .js, then add the00:12
ftapref("general.config.filename",..) line to that. This file won't be touched by00:12
ftathe updater, and Mozilla apps will read all the files in this directory on00:12
ftastartup."00:12
Lnsfta: I did that :( no love00:14
Lnsfta: actually i didnt try in .../default/pref, but looking on my system its actually .../defaults/preferences00:19
Lnswhy all of the dir/filename changes?00:19
fta"Slight correction - <install dir>/defaults/pref/ rather than .../default/..."00:19
LnsprefERENCES though00:19
LnsI can see how a lot of this stuff can get real confusing real quick00:20
LnsHeh, even here: http://mit.edu/~firefox/www/maintainers/config.html - prefs.js00:22
Lns    Sets the default homepage (works around a bug where you can't set the default homepage via autoconfig).00:22
Lnswhy was this one pref so mangled...00:23
ftahttps://developer.mozilla.org/en/MCD,_Mission_Control_Desktop_AKA_AutoConfig00:36
ftano idea if those stuff are up-to-date00:36
LnsThis is just insaaaaane00:37
LnsI see this in the link so it must be old: [root@b008-02 /usr/lib/firefox-1.5.0.2]00:38
ftawe'd better read the sources. but not today, it's 1:40am here00:38
Lnsnp fta, thank you so much for looking into it00:43
Lnsmuch appreciated00:43

fta[reed], who decided to stop the lp-bugzilla integration?17:20
[reed]fta: I did.17:23
[reed]because I got to thinking... why should Mozilla support a closed source system with custom code when it would be in our interests and the interests of the Open Web to support open source bug systems better17:25
[reed]it doesn't make sense if you think about it17:27
[reed]now, once launchpad is open source, I'll be happy to look into it again17:27
Nafallouser in -se says that seamonkey doesn't remove itself from the alternative x-www-browser after a purge.17:31

ftawhen you click on the sound applet, you have a button called "Volume Control...", it opens a "Sound Preferences" app17:59
Nafallodooh. the user says he have /usr/bin/seamonkey left on the system.17:59
NafalloI reckon he might have dreamed about removing it :-P18:00
