Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubufox

The bookmark for "Ubuntu" in Firefox's "Ubuntu and Free Software links" bookmarks folder links to ubuntulinux.org. While this still works, it has not been Ubuntu's primary URL for at least four years.

The bookmark should link to ubuntu.com, as this is Ubuntu's primary URL.

This bug was fixed in the package firefox - 8.0~b3+build1-0ubuntu1

firefox (8.0~b3+build1-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream release from the beta channel (FIREFOX_8_0b3_BUILD1)

  [ Chris Coulson <email address hidden> ]
  * Provide a useful error message when trying to build the source package
    with an out of date control file
    - update debian/rules
  * Provide a way to prevent the source package from being built if the list
    of shipped locales changed upstream. Note that this is disabled on
    nightly and aurora
    - update debian/rules
    - add debian/extract-file.py
  * Move custom scripts to debian/build
    - move debian/get-xpi-id.py to debian/build/get-xpi-id.py
    - move debian/refresh-supported-locales.pl to
    - move debian/extract-file.py to debian/build/extract-file.py
    - update debian/rules
  * Dropped patches fixed upstream:
    - remove debian/patches/build-fix-for-no-ENABLE_YARR_JIT.patch
    - remove debian/patches/compile-pldhash-as-C++.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Refresh patches:
    - update debian/patches/firefox-kde.patch
    - update debian/patches/mozilla-kde.patch
    - update debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-google.patch
  * Update support for doing PGO builds:
    - Add "mk_add_options MOZ_PGO=1" to mozconfig when doing a PGO build,
      rather than changing the make target to "profiledbuild"
      - update debian/mozconfig.in
      - update debian/rules
    - Run the profiling 10 times
      - update debian/mozconfig.in
    - Don't turn off the crash reporter or force unofficial branding for PGO
      - update debian/rules
    - Don't force the compiler to gcc-4.5 when doing PGO builds. Instead,
      we will just rely on the default compiler and not enable PGO on
      Ubuntu versions which don't have a new enough toolchain
      - update debian/rules
  * Shrink the default mozconfig right down, by using defaults rather than
    forcing things like --disable-system-cairo and friends. We still retain
    the ability to override the defaults though by setting MOZ_OVERRIDE_SHLIBS
    to either "tree" or "system", but we use upstream defaults now. We also
    drop the pkg-config checks in debian/rules which allowed a fallback build
    configuration when dependencies aren't satisfied. Really, the build should
    just fail here rather than continuing in some undesirable fallback mode
    - update debian/firefox-dev.install.in
    - update debian/firefox-dev.links.in
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
    - update debian/pkgconfig/libxul.pc.in
    - update debian/control.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Refresh build-depends, as this hasn't been done for a while:
    - Drop patchutils, libxft-dev, libxinerama-dev, libgnome2-dev and bzip2.
      These don't appear to be needed
    - Drop liborbit2-dev - only appears to be required if there is no libidl
    - Add libglib2.0-dev, libext-dev, libfontconfig1-dev and libpango1.0-dev,
      as the configure script checks for these directly
    - Add minimum versions to libgconf2-dev, libgnomevfs2-dev, yasm and
    - Specify min...

I updated to Firefox 9.0.1 from lucid-proposed. This bug still exists.

That's because it will only apply to a new profile

Is it planned to develop a fix which applies to an existing profile, or should this bug number be removed from the "changelog bugs" column on the firefox row in the lucid section at http://people.canonical.com/~ubuntu-archive/pending-sru.html ? This is complicated by the fact that there will still be users who install Lucid for the first time between now and the end of it's official support and who run updates during or immediately after installation, before starting firefox for the first time.
