Bug Description

Under certain circumstances (ie, when there are third party extensions installed in /usr/share/mozilla/extensions, or any extensions installed in the users profile), our bundled extensions (globalmenu + ubufox) and language packs are disabled automatically on upgrade to Firefox 8

  * New upstream release from the stable channel (FIREFOX_8_0_BUILD1)
    - see LP: #887339 for USN information

  [ Chris Coulson <email address hidden> ]
  * Don't disable our bundled addons on upgrade
    - update debian/vendor.js
  * Modify the UA string to add "Ubuntu" to the platform component
    - add debian/patches/ubuntu-ua-string-changes.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
    - update debian/rules
  * 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
       debian/build/refresh-supported-locales.pl
    - move debian/extract-file.py to debian/build/extract-file.py

    - update debian/patches/ubuntu-codes-google.patch
  * Shrink the default mozconfig right down so that we use mostly upstream
    defaults, rather than overriding them with our own options. It is still
    possible to override them though. 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/mozconfig.in
    - update debian/pkgconfig/libxul.pc.in

  * Refresh build-depends, as this hasn't been done for a while:
    - Drop patchutils, libxft-dev, libxinerama-dev, libgnome2-dev and bzip2.
      These aren't needed
    - Drop liborbit2-dev - only 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
      libgnomeui-dev
    - Specify minimum versions for libnspr4-dev, libcairo2-dev, libsqlite3-dev
      and libnss3-dev when using system versions of those libs
  * Introduce a branch config file (debian/config/branch.mk) which holds
    settings which shouldn't be merged between branches (eg, whether
    the crash reporter should be enabled)
    - add debian/config/branch.mk
    - update debian/rules
  * Move debian/locales.* to debian/config

This bug was fixed in the package thunderbird - 11.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.11.04.1

---------------
thunderbird (11.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.11.04.1) natty-proposed; urgency=low

  * New upstream stable release (THUNDERBIRD_11_0_1_BUILD1)

  * Update globalmenu-extension to 2.0.3
  * Ensure we include locales in the tarball if they are in shipped-locales
    but not in all-locales
    - update debian/build/create-tarball.py
  * Always set the update channel - not setting it at build-time on release
    builds breaks the extensions.checkCompatibility pref. The only things
    using it at runtime are nsBlocklistService, Test Pilot (beta + aurora)
    and the about dialog (where the channel is hidden anyway)
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
  * Fix LP: #898883 - IPC xpcshell tests hang the buildd's. Give all
    xpcshell tests an X display, as plugin-container won't work without one
    - update debian/build/testsuite.mk
  * Turn on all IPC xpcshell tests again (only applicable when the testsuite
    is enabled in the future)
    - update debian/build/testsute.mk
  * Refresh shipped locales for beta (addition of Armenian and Croatian)
    - refresh debian/config/locales.shipped
    - refresh debian/config/locales.all
    - refresh debian/control
  * Fix LP: #915895 - Just set autoDisableScopes to 0. Other distributions
    are already doing this, and we already made this feature pretty much
    useless by allowing extensions in the application directory, so that our
    language packs aren't disabled by default
    - update debian/vendor.js
  * Fix LP: #926495 - Add patch based on one from bmo: #691898 to enable
    building on ppc again
    - add debian/patches/fix-build-failure-without-yarr-jit.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Fix LP: #926495 - Disable the SPS profiler on unsupported architectures
    - add debian/patches/no-sps-profiler-on-unsupported-archs.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Disable more hanging IPC xpcshell tests
    - update debian/build/testsuite.mk
  * Drop the maintainer script hooks to remove conffiles that never even existed
    - remove debian/thunderbird.preinst.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Update after landing of bmo: #701875 - Rename omni.jar to omni.ja
    - update debian/thunderbird.install.in
  * Backport changes to allow per-release/par-arch patches
    - add debian/build/enable-dist-patches.pl
    - update debian/rules
  * Don't unconditionally overwrite SourcePackage when reporting bugs with
    the nightly apport hook
    - update debian/apport/source_thunderbird.py.in
  * Set "Channel = Unavailable" if channel-prefs.js doesn't contain a
    channel name
