Bug Description

The website getpersonas.com doesn't exist anymore. He redirect to addons.mozilla.org now and apparently LibreOffice doesn't download personas since this new location.
I observe this performance on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtails with LibreOffice (Build ID: 400m0(Build:2)).

getpersonas.com will be merged into addons.mozilla.org in the future. Please get the dialog in Options -> Personalization -> Select Persona to accept addons.mozilla.org URLs instead.

For more information, please visit:

(Part of the process of merging getpersonas.com and addons.mozilla.org involves the renaming of "Personas" into "themes" (and existing Mozilla themes into "Full Themes". We should consider dropping the word "Personas" from LibreOffice's UI.)

With this little change in mozilla's URL, the Personas feature simply stops working !
I think the importance is major, because this feature is pushed in the LibreOffice's website.

Migration to addons.mozilla.org (also referred to as ADO) seems to be completed. Pressing the "Visit Firefox Personas" button in LibreOffice redirects to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/

Unfortunately pasting a link of a theme e.g.

is not accepted by LibreOffice in the Persona address field

Why there's no way from the UI to install himself a local persona?

I confirm persona stop working when getpersonas.com move to addons.mozilla.org

Bug fixed in the Master branch

Tested with Version:
Build ID: 288c8b9d59024897e88b55b9001f9922998d130
under Windows XP x86

Although this bug is fixed in Master it should be cherry picked to 4.0.3 ASAP since Marketing made a big deal about this new feature and now it is broken (not LO's fault but still looks bad)

@Pedro: Isn't this fixed by https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/3482/ ( = for 4.0 branch) and https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/3483/ ( = for 4.0.3)?

Kind regards,

I think Joren is right. It works as expected in my own build of LO and the commit has been cherry-picked to LO 4.0.3 so it will be in (that is RC2).
The commit : https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/gitweb?p=core.git;a=commit;h=86c58a8109ad0695c91f86c3689df9dc01938386

Please, don't forget to verify when RC2 will be out.

Best regards. JBF
