Comments on: A multiplatform extension for Firefox web ~ music ~ photography ~ life Mon, 29 Nov 2010 16:28:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: Sascha Wed, 25 May 2005 07:53:11 +0000 Thanks for the reply. It is a plugin i wrote by myself. I wrote an install script for Mozilla 1.7 and it installs correctly in the plugins folder of Mozilla 1.7.

I am also able to install it with the Mozilla XPI installer in Firefox – but I want to add additionally some XUL-GUI in the Firefox style.

I tried to make a Firefox XPI package with install.rdf, … and the plugin installs into the extensions folder of the users profile. The plugin also shows up in the extensions list … but Firefox does not bind the plugin dll on startup (assumption: all plugins have to be in the plugins directory?).

Do you have any suggestions?

Here is the URL of the plugin:

Are we talking about a specific Mozilla plugin?

By: Sascha Tue, 24 May 2005 14:12:31 +0000 Hi,

do you know whether the XPI script for a plugin in Firefox is the same as with an extension. I have a Mozilla XPI and I want to transform it to use it with Firefox. The plugin installs into the user folder (Documents and Settings, …) – the Plugins Folder of Firefox remains empty.

When i load a page which needs the plugin , the plugin dll is not found. do you have any ideas?

By: Jed Wed, 01 Dec 2004 14:42:23 +0000 I would love to get my hands on the source for that.
Thank you so much
