Modify Firefox source code to compile a browser with different name and icon

Posted

What I want to know is if I download a copy of Firefox's source code, what do I need to change in the source to make the compiler give me a compiled version of Firefox but with a different title, EXE name and icon to the default?

This sounds beyond what the source code is made for public experimentation. One should be knowledgeable in programming here. And this is a End user help for firefox Browser not a tutorial programming help site.

Thanks for the help. I believe this is the location where you change what I need.

However, I have had so much trouble trying to get Firefox to compile on both Windows and Linux that I have shelved this project for now.
