Re: [QF-Test] Instrumentation of Mozilla Browser

Hi Dennis,

these files are necessary for the QF-Test javascript bridge which is used
inside the QF-Test browser engine.
You only need to write rights on /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.2 once. 
- Just start QF-Test and give write priviliges to /usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.2. 
- Start a browser window from QF-Test.
- all the necessary files are getting copied in the folder.
Now you can reset the priviliges on /usr/lib/xulrunnner-1.9.2 to read only.

You could also use a copy of the browser in another folder if you want to.

Best regards,
