Last modified: 2010-05-20 17:40:35 EDT
Description of problem:
In /usr/lib/firefox-3.5b4/chrome/browser.jar, there is are two "bookmark propertish" XULs, content/browser/places/bookmarkProperties.xul and content/browser/places/bookmarkProperties2.xul, and they are the same. It looks like a packaging issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install firefox.
2. Do rpm -ql firefox | grep browser.jar
3. Do unzip -l path-to-browser.jar | grep 'bookmarkProperties.*\.xul'

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Issue still present on rawhide:
# rpm -ql firefox | grep browser.jar
# unzip -l /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/chrome/browser.jar | grep 'bookmarkProperties.*\.xul'
3480 04-02-10 16:03 content/browser/places/bookmarkProperties.xul
3480 04-02-10 16:03 content/browser/places/bookmarkProperties2.xul
# rpm -qf /usr/lib/firefox-3.6/chrome/browser.jar
It's not a packaging error and not a bug.
