2005-11-07 Trunk builds

Trunk builds of Firefox use the version number 1.6a1, which prevents most existing extensions from working. You can work around this by setting app.extensions.version in about:config to 1.0+ or by using the "Make compatible" feature of the Nightly Tester Tools extension. Some extensions are actually incompatible, so be prepared to use -safe-mode if installing an extension this way breaks Firefox.

If you use a trunk build with your branch profile, your extensions will be disabled and you'll have to re-enable them if you return to the branch. If you want to use different profiles on the trunk and branch, you can make Firefox bring up the profile manager with "firefox.exe -P", and you can make Firefox use a specific profile with "firefox.exe -P profilename".

There have been over a hundred trunk-only fixes since the previous Burning Edge trunk post. Here are some of the most interesting ones:
