Revision Content

I think these instructions can be cleaned up and made to be much easier for new users. First off, can you explain what the real problem with simply doing:

./configure --enable-application=browser
make

Second: the instructions say to "export MOZCONFIG=~/mozilla/mozconfig-firefox". If that is always the case, then it should just be defined as `pwd`/mozconfig-firefox then the instructions should just go away and replaced with instructions on how to set this to something else. Agreed? Thanks for your time, Jeff Carr 14:53, 27 December 2005 (PST)
