#1033 closed defect (fixed)

Priority: high Milestone:

Severity: normal Keywords:


We should patch or pass a configure option to Firefox, Thunderbird and Mozilla so they install this directory in their respective /usr/lib subdirectories. Otherwise there could be conflicts if they are all installed in the /usr hierarchy. The current state could also be breaking FHS.

Some notes about this bug:

  1. Mozilla doesn't create the directory.
  2. The installed file is identical for Firefox and Thunderbird.

Which only leaves the FHS breakage thing, which is probably valid.

This has been fixed in the latest firefox, but is still an issue in the latest thunderbird. Will make this a dependency of the thunderbird bug.

The fix is:

sed -i -e "s/$(destdir)$(bindir)/$(DESTDIR)$(mozappdir)/" \
