Re: [alpine-devel] [PATCH] xulrunner, firefox: version bump to 22.0

Another Firefox issue I've noticed in 21.0 is that the search box no
longer seems to execute any searches---the same problem described at
this link:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-from-scratch-13/blfs-xulrunner-firefox-21-0-and-search-4175462532/

This is even with fresh profile. Searching from the URL field on the
other hand works fine.

Perhaps the fix proposed at the above link may resolve the issue. I haven't been
able to test this on Firefox 22.0, since as I explained before I can't
yet get that to build. I tried to test it on 21.0 without rebuilding, by
extracting the

    /usr/lib/firefox-21.0/browser/chrome/browser.jar

file, making the edit, and then re-jarring. However for some reason I
can't extract that file, using either fastjar nor unzip. I get error
messages saying "Ick! 0" (from fastjar) or

    Archive: browser.jar
    unzip: invalid zip magic 00000000

However, `fastjar -tf ...` works ok. Strange.
