The app-file is a manifest, located at the root of the application and provides metadata that allows XULRunner to launch the application properly. It must be named application.ini. It is parsed as a INI style with [Headings] and Key=Value pairs. Lines beginning with ; or # are treated as comments. Its format is further described on https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XUL_Application_Packaging#application.ini.


Any option following the application.ini file path will be fed by XULRunner to the application. As such, these options are dependent on the application.


MOZILLA_DISABLE_PLUGINS - when set, totally disables loading browser plugins (the ones that appear at the about:plugins url)
