XPath from extension's chrome not working in Firefox 3
Could you please tell how should the XPath query below be changed to work with Firefox 3? var query_1 = "//link[@type='application/rdf+xml']"; var result = document.evaluate(query_1, content.document, nsResolver, XPathResult.ANY_TYPE, null); It used to work (called from Firefox extension's chrome) with FF1.5 and FF2.0, but in FF3 b2 the execution stops at document.evaluate (though it does not output any error messages to the console). Seems like the problem is with content.document, but why doesn't it work and what can be used instead? I can't ...

API's and dll's
Could anyone please shortly explain to me how API's and Dll's are used in ASP.NET I need to be able to access Windows API's to list all SQL servers on our network. If I want to use a dll to call and return this, do I have to write it in .NET, or will my old VB6 dll be good enough if I add it from the COM tab ? Can ASP.NEt talk to the Windows API's? If so, is is called from the client machine or the server - or can it call it from both ? Thanks. Graham I think, accessing Windows API directly is not possible. But there is a great solution: Write a COM-object in VB6 that...

Update practices disabling critical add on's
Name: Ross Lindsey Product: Firefox Summary: Update practices disabling critical add on's - I'm dumping Firefox because of this. Going to CHROME Comments: When you update Firefox you clearly do it without any thought at all of the effect on add in's. Many people like myself only utilize your browser BECAUSE of the rich and useful add in's. Every time you update you torpedo hundreds of add in's. Hard work goes into configuring these, and when you summarily disable them you create havoc!. I refuse to accept this treatment anymore, and I am dumping Firefox...
