firefox (62.0+build2-0ubuntu0.14.04.4) trusty-security; urgency=medium

  * Fix LP: #1791789: Mark distribution search engines as read-only, so that
    they are marked as hidden in rather than removed from the search engine
    cache when a user "removes" them (they can't actually be removed from disk).
    This stops them from reappearing on cache rebuilds
    - add debian/patches/mark-distribution-search-engines-as-read-only.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Backport upstream change to the search service to not handle locale changes
    on shutdown. As well as resulting in en-US search engines being added to
    the search engine cache for all locales, it was resulting in a cache
    rebuild on every restart, making the above bug worse (fixes another part of
    LP: #1791789)
    - add debian/patches/search-service-dont-handle-locale-changes-on-shutdown.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Ensure that region-specific search defaults are disabled everywhere
    - update debian/distribution.ini
    - remove debian/patches/disable-geo-specific-search-defaults-for-us.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Fix the Ubuntu search engine defaults now that the "browser.search.order."
    and "browser.search.defaultengine" prefs have been removed from the default
    - update debian/distribution.ini
    - remove debian/patches/ubuntu-search-defaults.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Set "intl.locale.requested" in vendor-gre.js rather than in distribution.ini.
    The former is loaded by the pref service much earlier, and this pref needs
    to be initialized before distribution.ini prefs are applied in order for
    locale-specific prefs to work
    - update debian/distribution.ini
    - update debian/vendor-gre.js
  * Rename debian/patches/revert-upstream-search-engine-changes.patch to
    debian/patches/no-region-overrides-for-google-search.patch to better
    reflect what the patch is for (described in the patch header)
  * Drop debian/patches/normalize-distribution-searchplugins.patch - this is
    no longer needed and hasn't been for a long time. It was added to fix
    loss of metadata on upgrade for distribution search engines when the
    Firefox install location was versioned
  * Set "spellchecker.dictionary_path" by default to point to /usr/share/hunspell
    so that system dictionaries are loaded again, now that Firefox no longer
    loads them from its own install directory. Fixes another part of
    LP: #1791789
    - update debian/firefox.links.in
    - update debian/vendor-gre.js
