ubiquity (2.11.33) quantal; urgency=low

  [ Dmitrijs Ledkovs ]
  * Make Add/Remove/Change toolbar not have a background. Thanks to
    askubuntu and andrewsomething.
  * Fix TypeError in a debug statement when resize is not possible due to
    small total disk space.
  * Remove more of Python 2 support.  We are not going back to the __future__.

  [ Stéphane Graber ]
  * Fix drop_all_privileges to also set LOGNAME which is required by firefox
    to contact an existing instance. (LP: #446679)

  Release Notes can't be opened when Firefox is already running.

Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: ubiquity

  If firefox is launched before ubiquity, clicking the 'Release Notes'
  link gives a 'Firefox is already running but is not responding' error.
  The release notes are not opened in a new tab of the running firefox
  instance. When both applications have been restarted the problem does
  not occur.

  The problem occurs in both 1.99.28_amd64 and, after upgrading the live
  environment, 1.99.31_amd64.

  Steps to reproduce:
  - boot 9.10beta_amd64 livecd [ and `sudo aptitude install ubiquity` ]
  - launch firefox
  - click the 'Install Ubuntu 9.10' icon
  - click the 'Release Notes' button
