What we should update via script (all updates will be manual)

  • Main options panel is now General options panel.
    • Replace "{PATH()}Main{PATH} panel" and "{MENU()}Main{MENU} panel" with "{MENU()}General{MENU} panel ({MENU()}Main{MENU} panel in Firefox 3.5)"
  • Using about:support to direct users to profile folder.
    • We will create a content block for about:support
    • We will need to standardize the instructions for going to your profile folder, so they all get changed by the script.
  • Replace "Go to your Firefox profile folder - see ((Profiles|#How to find your profile|How to find your profile))" with don't know what yet.
