Contents.rdf

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

contents.rdf files were used to register chrome packages and overlays before Gecko 1.8 (Firefox/Thunderbird 1.1). Gecko 1.8 applications still support contents.rdf for backwards compatibility, but a new, simpler file format is preferred - chrome.manifest. See "Configurable Chrome" document at mozilla.org for more information.
