firefox (13.0+build1-0ubuntu0.11.10.1) oneiric-security; urgency=low

  * New upstream stable release (FIREFOX_13_0_BUILD1)
    - see LP: #1007495 for USN information

  [ Chris Coulson <chris.coulson at canonical.com> ]
  * Update globalmenu-extension to 3.2.3
    - Reduce our memory footprint a bit, which wasn't really a lot anyway
    - Avoid the use of the component manager for accessing commonly used
      services, where "commonly used" means "accessed when building every
      menu item". This should save some CPU cycles when building or
      refreshing menus
    - Try to recycle menuitems when they are removed from a menu by
      adding contiguous blocks of removed items to a "free list" which
      is emptied asynchronously, and reusing the items in this list when
      new items are added in place of the removed items. This means that
      refreshing the history menu contents when the menu is opened no
      longer alters the menu structure, but results in a shifting of
      properties between existing nodes instead. This has a few benefits:
      + With no layout changes, unity-panel-service doesn't request
        the entire menu structure, which significantly reduces dbus traffic
        and makes it much faster to refresh the menu contents
      + The size of the menu doesn't change when it is refreshed, which
        eliminates the flicker that used to occur when opening the history
    - Remove all use of the global observer service for sending our own
      internal notifications around
    - Clean up the way we ensure that the correct edit commands are
      enabled by just installing our own onpopupshowing handler rather
      than using an additional notification to fix things up after the
      default handler runs
    - Get rid of a static initializer
    - Don't support older than Firefox 11
    - Fix some GError leaks
    - Hide the internal menu when creating a native menu, rather than
      waiting for confirmation that the native menu is registered
      successfully. We don't try to create a native menu if we don't
      find a menu service to register the menu with anyway
    - Keep menu contents updated whilst the menu is open, rather than
      just whilst it is opening
    - Fix LP: #915888 - Handling of checkbox menuitems with a command
      node is wrong
