I believe if you disable the "cookie" extension, we can do away with the
hacks. I will be testing this a little later. Right now I'm updating
Mozilla. I'm convinced BLFS should probably go with the creation of a
.mozconfig file instead of running configure. This is simply how Mozilla
wants it done now. I suppose it's time to bite the bullet and change
the way we do things.

is new. Here, you'll see why you can't use the 'cookie' extension with
T-Bird and the 'typeaheadfind' extension with anything except the
Mozilla suite.

Hopefully, I can get Moz, T-Bird and Firefox converted over today. It's
slow testing though, it takes about 20 minutes to build each package
and I'm testing using different configurations to find out what is
*really* needed and what isn't.
