TribExt v0.1234 for FF 10

by DoDo Wed Dec 14th, 2011 at 01:24:11 PM EST

As regular readers of the European Tribune know, user someone wrote an extension of the Firefox browser, TribExt, for easier blogging on the site (downloadable via its link in the blue background box in the sidebar). Firefox having switched to fast development with a regular schedule for releasing new versions, we have to check for compatibility and release a new version every few months even if there are no new features.

The latest version I'm now releasing is now compatible up to Firefox 10 (Firefox 9 is to be released on 20 December 2011, Firefox 10 on 31 January 2012). This included no other change than editing the file name and re-setting the extension name and maxversion values in the file install.rdf, since I found no issues in the developer notes. However, if you find any bugs, please report it.

A more significant change is that I fixed a bug that haunted many of us since Firefox 3: a failure of dynamic rating which affected only some computers. Dynamic rating should now work for everyone. If you are interested in the details: I finally found that this is caused by unmarking the "Accept third party cookies" checkbox in Tools > Options > Privacy (you can also find that preference as "network.cookie.cookieBehavior" in about:config, with values of 1 or above causing the problem). Our bug is related to Bugzilla@Mozilla - Bug 437174, which led to a fix implemented in FF3.6 and later, providing for a workaround which TribExt now implements. Consequently, I also bumped minversion (the oldest version of Firefox this new TribExt will work with) to 3.6.

Meanwhile, I'm happy Google's continuous development of their Translate tool didn't broke TribExt's bilingual column tool again, yet.

I'm running this FF10 version now with no problems (except the keybd shortcuts).

Yes the keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl+Left or Ctrl+Right -> jump between columns in "Translate". Is there a way to use another shortcut for that. Because the current shortcuts make it harder to edit the contents of a column. It jumps to the other column when I want it to jump between words.
