This bug was fixed in the package firefox - 4.0~b7+nobinonly-0ubuntu1

firefox (4.0~b7+nobinonly-0ubuntu1) natty; urgency=low

  * New upstream release v4.0 B7 (FIREFOX_4_0b7_RELEASE)

  [ Chris Coulson <chris.coulson at canonical.com> ]
  * Don't build with -pie on Natty (LP: #663294)
    - update debian/rules
  * Update mozclient for mozilla-central
    - update debian/mozclient/firefox.conf
    - update debian/mozclient/firefox.mk
  * Auto-generate Debhelper files at build time, using the Mozilla
    text preprocessor. This makes it easier to maintain branches for
    different versions (because we'll avoid having different filenames for
    each version, which makes merging really difficult). We can also use
    standard preprocessor directives for our different build options,
    which means we drop a lot of logic from debian/rules
    - rename debian/abrowser.desktop => debian/abrowser.desktop.in
    - add debian/abrowser-branding.install.in
    - add debian/abrowser-branding.links.in
    - add debian/firefox-branding.install.in
    - add debian/firefox-branding.links.in
    - rename debian/apport/firefox.py => debian/apport/firefox.py.in
    - rename debian/firefox-final.desktop => debian/firefox-final.desktop.in
    - rename debian/firefox-gnome-support.install =>
    - rename debian/firefox.dirs => debian/firefox.dirs.in
    - rename debian/firefox.install => debian/firefox.install.in
    - rename debian/firefox.links => debian/firefox.links.in
    - rename debian/firefox.menu => debian/firefox.menu.in
    - rename debian/firefox.postinst.in => debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - rename debian/firefox.postrm.in => debian/firefox.postrm.in
    - rename debian/firefox.preinst.in => debian/firefox.preinst.in
    - rename debian/firefox.prerm.in => debian/firefox.prerm.in
    - rename debian/firefox.xml => debian/firefox.xml.in
    - updated debian/abrowser.desktop.in
    - updated debian/firefox-final.desktop.in
    - updated debian/firefox-gnome-support.install.in
    - updated debian/firefox.dirs.in
    - updated debian/firefox.install.in
    - updated debian/firefox.links.in
    - updated debian/firefox.menu.in
    - updated debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - updated debian/firefox.postrm.in
    - updated debian/firefox.preinst.in
    - updated debian/firefox.prerm.in
    - updated deibna/firefox.xml.in
    - updated debian/rules
    - add debian/firefox-mozsymbols.install.in
  * Simplify generating the Apport blacklist file to remove a superfluous
    debian/rules target
    - rename debian/apport/blacklist => debian/apport/firefox.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Auto-generate debian/control in the clean target
    - add debian/control.pp
    - update debian/rules
  * Drop the ability to disable patches on a per-release basis. This adds
    additional complexity, and we're not really using it at the moment.
    We can always add it back again if we need it
    - remove debian/disable-patches.sh
    - update debian/rules
    - remove debian/patches/series-disable-patches.8.04
  * Rework the branding selection logic so that we automatically use
    the nightly branding for nightly builds, unofficial branding for
    alpha milestones, and official branding for beta, RC's and final.
    Auto-populate the branding names in the desktop files rather than
    hard-coding them, and add a special beta desktop file
    - add debian/firefox-beta.desktop.in
    - rename debian/firefox-minefield.desktop =>
    - rename debian/firefox-namaroka.desktop =>
    - update debian/rules
  * Drop the update-notifier restart required hook. Instead, we rely on
    the ubufox restart required banner inside the browser, rather than having
    2 notification mechanisms
    - remove debian/firefox-restart-required.update-notifier
    - update debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - update debian/firefox.prerm.in
  * Rewrite the launcher script to not wrap around the upstream start
    scripts, but start the Firefox binary directly. The upstream start scripts
    contain a lot of complexity for dealing with things that we don't need to
    worry about, and are quite slow. Also, add in the hooks for the new
    profile migrator
    - update debian/firefox.sh.in
  * Replace the old profile migrator. The previous one relied on hard-coded
    values and fragile shell script that isn't really scalable enough
    now that stable Ubuntu releases see new major Firefox versions. The
    new profile migrator doesn't require any hard-coded values, and should
    be lower maintenance
    - add debian/migrator/xulapp-profilemigrator
    - remove debian/migrator/main.c
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/firefox.sh.in
    - update debian/control.pp
  * Build with "make -f client.mk" and using a mozconfig, rather than the
    autoconf/configure/make steps used previously. The client.mk contains the
    sequencing for doing PGO builds
    - update debian/firefox-mozsymbols.install.in
    - add debian/mozconfig.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Add support for building with PGO. Add a build option (DEB_BUILD_PGO)
    which will run the build with make -f client.mk profiledbuild. This is
    off by default.
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
  * Run the Mozilla test suite at build time. Currently, we run the following
    targets: check, xpcshell-tests, reftest and crashtest. Test-suite failures won't
    break the build just yet
    - add debian/testsuite.mk
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/control.pp
  * Tidy up the vendor preferences
    - remove debian/ubuntu-useragent.js.tmpl
    - rename debian/firefox.js => debian/vendor-firefox.js.in
    - rename debian/ubuntu-abrowser.js.tmpl => debian/vendor-abrowser.js.in
    - update debian/vendor-firefox.js.in
    - update debian/vendor-abrowser.js.in
    - update debian/rules
  * Don't touch .autoreg on upgrade. This isn't necessary with the XPCOM changes
    in Gecko 2.0
    - update debian/firefox.postinst.in
    - remote debian/firefox-gnome-support.postinst.in
  * Disable gnomevfs support on >= 11.04 (LP: #661287)
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
    - update debian/firefox-gnome-support.install.in
  * Add x-scheme-handler magic to desktop files
    - update debian/firefox.desktop.in
    - update debian/firefox-beta.desktop.in
    - update debian/firefox-nightly.desktop.in
    - update debian/firefox-unofficial.desktop.in
  * Dropped obsolete / not-needed patches
    - remove debian/patches/add_syspref_dir.patch
    - remove debian/patches/bz386904_config_rules_install_dist_files.patch
    - remove bz534663_attXXX_normalize_distribution_searchplugins.patch
    - remove debian/patches/bz591331_att469858_breakpad_allow_ptrace.patch
    - remove debian/patches/ubuntu_no_app_updates.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Update build-depends for Firefox 4.0

    - update bz460917_att350845_reload_new_plugins.patch
    - update bz467738_att351145_lockPref_everywhere.patch

    - update ubuntu_bookmarks.patch
  * Disable KDE integration temporarily until I've reviewed the updated patches
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Install top-level chrome.manifest after landing of (bmo: 579178) aka
    - update debian/firefox.install.in
  * Add trademarkInfo key to the brand.dtd file in the awesome-branding
    to fix an issue with Help->About not working. Also drop the unneeded
    overrides from the manifest file and rename the patch to reflect it's
    extended scope. Eventually, this patch should be merged in to the
    awesome-branding bzr branch
    - rename debian/patches/awesome_branding_chrome_rename.patch =>
    - update debian/patches/awesome_branding_updates.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Install our vendor preferences in to dist/bin before running stage-package.
    This seems to be the only way to ensure that they are included in the
    omni.jar. This means we need to patch the upstream package-manifest to
    include the extra file
    - add debian/patches/install_ubuntu_prefs.patch
    - update debian/rules
  * Clean up the files in /etc/firefox on upgrade
    - update debian/firefox.preinst.in
  * Support builds suitable for valgrind, by building with
    DEB_MOZ_VALGRIND=1. This will automatically pick the right optimisations
    and build flags
    - update debian/rules
    - update debian/mozconfig.in
  * Fix make install with --enable-chrome-format=omni. Add patch to create
    the omni.jar file after running stage-package. This has already
    landed on mozilla-central, so we can drop again at beta 8
    - add debian/patches/bz588410_fix_make_install_with_omnijar.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
  * Drop other unused cruft from the package

    - allow owner write to ~/.config/ibus/bus/
    - adjust apparmor profile for latest sun-java6 plugin (LP: #633369)

  [ Micah Gersten <micahg at ubuntu.com> ]
