Bug 1245422 - Remove the -FR C*FLAGS on Windows builds. r=mshal The flag is used to create .sbr files, which bscmake subsequently uses to create .bsc files. These files and related tools are, aiui, the ancestors of Intellisense. The -FR C*FLAGS are added to the build if MOZ_BROWSE_INFO or MOZ_BSCFILE are set in the recursive make backend. While the former has an AC_SUBST, the latter does not, so in practice, only the former can be set by supported methods, and would need to be set in a mozconfig. At that rate, people who do want those flags can add them in the C*FLAGS on their own. Developers are probably better served by the VisualStudio backend anyways.

To have your bug fix / feature added to Mozilla, you should create a patch and
submit it to Bugzilla (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org). Instructions are at:

    http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Creating_a_patch
    http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Getting_your_patch_in_the_tree

If you have a question about developing Mozilla, and can't find the solution
on http://developer.mozilla.org, you can try asking your question in a
mozilla.* Usenet group, or on IRC at irc.mozilla.org. [The Mozilla news groups
are accessible on Google Groups, or news.mozilla.org with a NNTP reader.]

You can download nightly development builds from the Mozilla FTP server.
Keep in mind that nightly builds, which are used by Mozilla developers for
testing, may be buggy. Firefox nightlies, for example, can be found at:
