which file in firefox will do the currosponding job of iceweaselrc file in Iceweasel


In iceweasel(Debian OS) i was able to disable pango by copying following code in iceweaselrc file in Iceweasel.
MOZ_DISABLE_PANGO=1

Now i have compiled and installed firefox 3.0 in Debian Operating system.
I need to disable pango in firefox for research purpose, but i could'nt find corresponding file in firefox.

Can any body please tell me which is the corresponding file of iceweaselrc in firefox.

jdkaye, Thanks for the reply. But since i have compiled and installed, there is no file named firefox in /etc.

This is the out put of "find / -name firefox" command.

/root/.mozilla/firefox
/media/disk-2/usr/local/bin/firefox
/media/disk-2/usr/local/lib/firefox-3.0/firefox
/media/disk-2/root/.mozilla/firefox
/usr/bin/firefox

In all the folders i have searched but there is no file named firefoxrc or iceweaselrc.

Please geve me a reply..

I'd love to give you a reply but it may be the case that if you compile FFx yourself then you must create the firefoxrc file yourself. Somewhere in the documentation it may explain how to do it and where to put it. My firefoxrc is very short:
Code:
# which /dev/dsp wrapper to use
FIREFOX_DSP="none"
If you want to create your own firefoxrc file then note that this file is found in .../firefox/
Also found in that firefox folder are 2 subfolders: pref profile
If you find a .../firefox folder that contains these two subfolders then you could create firefoxrc in that folder and add your code to the file I presented above and see what happens. Maybe that will work.
Cheers,
jdk
