Communication by Firefox devs to add-on devs
The time has come for the developers of Firefox to start communicating
with the developers of add-ons. As a case in point:
Recently the classic.manifest file in fx3 has had a large number of
override codes added to it that reassigned filenames from example.png
to example-aero.png. Suddenly, all third-party themes in Vista are now
missing buttons in a number of places - some of them not easy to spot
(e.g. - the wrap icon that shows up only when you reach the bottom of
a page in a page search). If one of the themers had not had a user
using Vista who communicated with him, and if the t...Purpose of dev-tech-xpcom
What's the purpose of this list?
I used to think it was about XPCOM itself, basically for questions about
the code in xpcom/**.
However, that doesn't seem to be how everyone else uses it. In fact, it
seems to be about all coding questions that are somewhat Firefox- or
XULRunner-related. Basically what the platform or extension lists are
supposed to be.
Should we, therefore, delete this list/newsgroup? As it is used, it is

The add on / plug in is freezing up firefox when an
alert box pops up. It does this with the new firefox

close out firefox.

I recently started the Jetpack Features working group  to investigate
the feasibility of shipping core Firefox features as default addons
built with the Add-on SDK (similar to the way the Test Pilot addon ships
with Firefox beta builds), with an initial focus on the BrowserID, Open
Web Apps, and F1 Sharing features.
One of our challenges is figuring out how to localize these features,
not use XUL).
Jetpack engineer Alex Poirot is working on a localization API for the
