Description (last modified by trev)


Mozilla now requires that extensions have to be signed by them - our own signing functionality no longer has a point, as this signature would be ignored/overwritten anyway.

What to change

Remove signing functionality from build tools. Drop the -k command line switch when calling build or release for Gecko builds.
