  • Ticket #3766 – Description

    initial v1  
    1 Mozilla changed the way mobile bookmarks work, i.e. removed those and is now using the desktop ones. Investigate how to restore our links to the starting page and fix it. 
     1Mozilla changed the way mobile bookmarks work, i.e. removed those and is now using the desktop ones. This change currently breaks the tests for building Fennec. A temporary solution to get the build working again is to disable the tests by adding `ac_add_options --disable-tests` to your `mozconfig`.

     3Previously bookmarks were defined via a locale specific `bookmarks.inc` file in the `mobile` folder. See [https://hg.adblockplus.org/adblockbrowser/file/9e4c6186b683/mobile/locales/en-US/profile here]. The corresponding string definitions were to be found [https://hg.adblockplus.org/adblockbrowser/file/9e4c6186b683/mobile/android/base/strings.xml.in#l432 here] (Those strings are currently commented out in branch `abb_fennec_44_0_2_merge`).

     5With the latest merge, Mozilla has removed the mobile specific `bookmarks.inc` file, so it seems we now should use the one located in `browser/locales/en-US/profile/`.

     7We need a way to get the bookmarks and their strings working again.
