kiosk extension does not work in firefox 3.6

Upstream bug:


The r-kiosk firefox extension that we use for our browsing option from the login window does not work in firefox 3.6, even after disabling the compatibility check. The extension's web page ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1659) mentions an experimental version (0.8.0) for 3.6, but its download link is broken.

The extension lacks a chrome.manifest file, which is apparently required now in 3.6. (The extension currently includes an old-style contents.rdf instead). Adding one (and disabling the compatibility check for 3.6) got it working. I sent email to the developer.

Fixed in r24578, by adding a chrome.manifest, as well as the version-specific preference to disable compatibility checks.
