What date is your build?

The fix was in yesterday, and it fixed the problem for me here.
All advanced options save.
Atleast for branch.

Edit: There was no trunk fix for it, but it shouldn't exist unless it's a new break.
The comment for the branch checkin said..
pref-advanced.js was not added to jar.mn when we merged trunk changes to the branch, fix busted panel from the missing file


So I'm thinking it was branch only.
It should be ok on the last 2 days, trunk and branch, but let me know if I'm wrong.

There was no Official branch for 05-22 (you may mean my unofficial, I forgot a vendorComment yesterday), but if it's working for you now, that's a good thing :)

A little background on those Unofficial builds I've been doing...
I've been putting those out as un-patched and un-optomized as I can, trying to get close clones of Beast's builds for testing. Beast is still stuck on a locked file and there's no one there for the weekend to give him a kick. So the 05-22 and 05-23 branch builds in this thread are unofficial, as the link says. Just so there's no confusion. I just don't want people thinking I'm claiming to be official :)

I have noticed, that the links from the external applications open now in new window, instead of the current one, like some days before. Could it be caused by switching from installer to zip builds? (Directory structure remained the same). Can I force Firefox to the "old" behavior?

This works: Tabbrowser preferences

It seems silly to list bug 102519 since its about 2.5 years old now.

I'm sure there are hundreds of Mozilla users that would like their pet bug (mine is bug 236772, for example) on your daily list, but the list seems most useful when primarily limited to recent regressions.

Is anyone else getting this with the builds for the 2004-05-22 and 2004-05-23 (maybe on 05-21 too but I havn't checked.), maybe any os but looks like only branch...

When Firefox is first run, it creates a chrome\chrome.rdf for me, but it doesn't create a chrome\overlayinfo directory. This results in the help menu item not adding the selections from the help extension (ex: "Help Contents"), and the tools menu item not showing Dom Inspector.

Workaround (Only if you do NOT have <app path>\chrome\overlayinfo\): Delete chrome.rdf, restart Firefox.
The menu items should be back and you should have an overlayinfo folder and a re-generated chrome.rdf.

Edit: I called it overlay, but it's overlayinfo, sorry.

Oh! Even on MacOS X, the Firefox is getting faster. However some features are broken.

Wee!

Beast put out a couple of builds in
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ ... lds/BEAST/

Your guess as to trunk or branch though, depending on the hour you get them.

But that means we should get officials for tomorrow, unless he busts again. :)

I confirm, did you file a bug ?

[edit]It completely fails to make the profile under default/XXXX.slt/ , the XXXX.slt is missing.
so the profile is under /default/[/edit]

Aviary no longer uses .slt, that's why profiles have been such a pain the past couple of days.
That's the new structure.

I didn't file a bug for the other yet since no one confirmed for me until now :)
Filing it now.

Bug 244479: chrome\overlayinfo not created and no help or DOMi in the menu.

Did you ask if that was intended, it might be a bug too (no .slt) ?
btw, would like to come to IRC, but it's blocked here at the office
