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)
Manual configuration (without sourcing browser/config/mozconfig) does not work on older branches such as the aviary (Firefox/Thunderbird 1.0.x) branch.
As explained in the instructions, the default location of mozconfig is the root of the source tree, or ~/.mozconfig if not present. You only need to set MOZCONFIG in your environment to override this default.

What does the fb in fb-opt-static for Firefox mean? Doesn't ff-opt-static make more sense?
