Bug 860860 - followup: fix json.dump call and be more explicit about object ordering; r=gps It turns out the simple s/simplejson/json/ didn't work because build_tooltool_manifest used item_sort_key to ensure that the objects read in were written out in the same order. This scheme was brittle, since it only understand a couple of keys from the manifest file, and it doesn't work with the stdlib json. Instead, use object_pairs_hook=collections.OrderedDict with json.load, which ensures that current objects get written out in the same order they were read in *and* that any future keys will be handled automagically.

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:
