Comment 1 Jef Spaleta 2007-11-30 13:55:00 EST
Let me propose a fix.

We remove the gre.conf file from the firefox package and explicitly set GRE_PATH
in the firefox calling shell in a manner similar to how MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME
variable is set.

If you need me to provide a patch to do this, I'll need a couple of days to find
the couple of minutes to poke at the package and reuse the directory versioning
trick that is already being used for MOZ_FIVE_HOME setting logic.

I know about this problem. Unfortunately, /etc/gre.d/gre(64).conf is read by
gtkmozembed application what are not linked directly to gecko-libs (like a
python wrapper). 

Recently, gecko-libs are provided by two packages (firefox and xulrunner) so
that who packages conflict and you have to choose what gecko-libs you want to use.

When all packages are moved to xulrunner, /etc/gre.d/gre(64).conf will be
provided only by xulrunner.

Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2007-12-03 07:06:25 EST
/etc/gre.d/gre(64).conf is removed from firefox-2_0_0_10-2_fc9.
