This week I learned

  • [mkaply] You can set MOZ_BUILD_DATE in the environment to override the build ID if you want to build something that matches a released build. This is handy because various databases reset based on build ID, so you move profiles from a released build to a debug build
  • [mkaply] If you need to know if Firefox is shutting down, use Services.startup.shuttingDown
