Description rkoberman 2012-06-11 01:50:03 UTC
www/firefox-remote uses a PORTNAME of "firefox" which is hte same as
that of the main firefox port. This results in firefox-remote over-writing
the options for firefox.

Since firefox-remote is onloy used with firefox, this means that, if any
options are selected, options for firefox are lost and vice-versa.


Change PORTNAME to firefox-remote
How-To-Repeat: Install firefox with an option selected and then build firefox with options

Look like this is another instance of ports/148637.

Pretty similar in what happens, yes.  But the mechanism is different,
and here www/firefox-remote is a distinct port to www/firefox, and the
problem is due to clearly incorrect code in the firefox-remote port.

Like Kevin says, start with setting:

PORTNAME=	firefox-remote

remove PKGNAMESUFFIX and adjust anywhere that refers to those

  To avoid firefox-remote overwriting options for firefox, set PORTNAME to
  "firefox-remote" and get rid of PKGNAMESUFFIX.
