Just installed the latest nightly and noticed some new icons and what not going on. I attempted to open up omni.jar to see what's new and I cannot open it with IZarc. It just shows a blank file with no contents. Minefield opens and displays everything correctly so I know the file isn't corrupt. Any thoughts on this?

Someone else was mentioning that in the nightly thread (don't remember who). But mine seems to open fine using the jar utility included with Java.

Have you tried with the latest? Your UA says 20100911.

Interesting pal-moz. Maybe this has something to do with their zipper?

For the record, this is with the 20100913 build of Firefox 4.0b6pre for 32bit Windows. The file size shows as 3,764 KB in Windows XP. I haven't tried WinRAR as it's for-pay software. IZarc shows nothing. 7Zip gives this error:

"0 Can not open file 'C:\.....\firefox\omni.jar' as archive"

Excuse me? Is Mozilla going to pay $30 for me to buy WinRar?

For a quick peek, it seems to open OK in Firefox itself:

jar:file:///D:/app/fx3.7nightly/omni.jar!/

or whatever your local path is. I didn't see a way to save out whole directories, but that would be nice.

Well, if Firefox couldn't open it or the file was corrupted, then the interface would explode... I'm sure you've accidentally attempted to install an "empty" theme and seen how bad it would be! ;) Any bugs open on this situation?

Granted it has been a while since I've used it, but I've never seen an expired copy of WinRAR prevent you from using it.


EDIT: 7-Zip 9.16 beta (running on Linux using Wine 1.2) seems to be able to open the file.

^Friend had any early version of winzip that used to tell him he was 210days over his trial period and counting :D

No the 7zip beta won't open it either

Yeah I tested the 7Zip beta too. I used an expired copy of WinZip for ages and finally got tired of the notifications and moved on. When I started theming, I tested many different ZIP utilities that wouldn't generate a file that Firefox could read. I'm guessing this is something similar in reverse? Maybe they are using some kind of proprietary compression setting.

Or you can try this
