1791789 FF62 upgrade : search engines override, french dictionnary and language pack lost.

Version: 62.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.4 2018-09-13 14:06:56 UTC

  firefox (62.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.4) xenial-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
    again
    - 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
    build
    - 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

Version: 62.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.3 2018-09-06 22:06:47 UTC

  firefox (62.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.3) xenial-security; urgency=medium

  * New upstream stable release (62.0build2)

  [ Rico Tzschichholz ]
  * Drop upstreamed/obsolete patches
    - debian/patches/skia-big-endian.patch
  * Add en-CA to debian/config/locales.shipped
  * Update patches
    - update debian/patches/update-gn-mozbuild.patch

  [ Chris Coulson ]
  * Update and re-enable unity-menubar.patch
  * Refresh how our customized search engines are installed to be aligned
    with recent changes upstream
    - update debian/config/searchplugins.conf
    - update debian/install-distribution-searchplugins.py
    - update debian/rules
    - flatten debian/searchplugins
  * Build language packs after running "mach install", as some generated files
    (eg, bookmarks.html) are staged in non locale-specific output directories
    and symlinked from the language pack stage area, and in the case of en-US,
    are symlinked from the firefox stage area. Building language packs before
    this results in the language pack builds breaking the en-US locale - eg,
    default bookmarks for en-US appearing as zh-TW, which happens to be the
    last language pack we build
    - update debian/build/rules.mk
  * Build with --with-unsigned-addon-scopes=app to allow our unsigned language
    packs to work and drop the previous changes which did the same thing, as
    this functionality has been provided a different way upstream
    - update debian/config/mozconfig.in
    - update debian/vendor-gre.js
    - remove debian/patches/allow-addon-signature-requirements-to-be-relaxed.patch
    - update debian/patches/series
