Firefox 3 KDE Integration (Intrepid)

Registered by Alexander Sack on 2008-06-06

Firefox 3 comes with improved OS integration on gnome; unfortunately, the KDE user-experience still needs to catch up in order to provide a complete and integrated firefox experience on the KDE/Kubuntu Desktops.

This specs identified the main issues and proposes solutions on how those can be resolved in the mid-term.

Another motivation is that KDE integration is a feature wanted upstream; however, this implies that implementations should take extra care that they are still on track for upstream inclusion code and design wise.

2008-06-16 kamion: Approved. Alex, are you doing this, or is Jonathan, or somewhere in between, or somebody else?

2008-06-17 asac: i didnt find an implementor nor had I enough cycles for the 3.0 solution yet. Real solution should be done in form of upstream contribution to the 3.1 branch; 3.1 will support Qt widget toolkit and in consequence it makes more sense to directly contribute these integration parts there. intrepid+1 would be a more appropriate target for this spec. Setting to Deferred.
