nice. that worked.

to get the ID.. did you just generate a random UUID or is there a specific ID that corresponds to "Zoomy" that you knew to use?

No, I just borrowed a GUID ... etc.
Probably all these extensions have the same problem and can use the same hack:

Almost Full Screen, Blockfall, ...

NB: don't change the GUID under <targetApplication>
I've now "hacked" both "x" and "tab x", which are working fine. Thanks very much.

I didn't see the point, though, about "getting" or "generating" an id. I just used the id from the "target application" line in the install.rdf file, and it worked like a champ.

... snip ...
You can use the targetApplication GUID only once (unchanged).
Ummm, Ria is a super FF expert, and I'm and English teacher, so I really can't tell you why this is working, but this is what I just pulled out of the two install.rdf files I "hacked" using his instructions:
-----------------------------------------------
(1) from install.rdf of tab x
<targetApplication>
<r:Description>
<id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</id>
<minVersion>0.9</minVersion>
<maxVersion>1.0</maxVersion>
</r:Description>
</targetApplication>

(2) from install.rdf of x
<targetApplication>
<r:Description>
<id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</id>
<minVersion>0.9</minVersion>
<maxVersion>1.0</maxVersion>
</r:Description>
</targetApplication>
--------------------------------------------------
As can be seen, the id is the same in both, but as I said, both work fine. To make things even cooler, I'm using a shared profile for both the trunk tinderbox and 1.0.4. With Ria's tip, my setup is working exactly how I've wanted it for a long time. Thanks again.

If I use Nuke Anything to remove your code on http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic ... 02#1463102 I have no horizontal scrollbars. There is a Bug #99457[Core]-Support wrap-option (breaks long lines) [All] for it...

Yep, of course they use the same targetApplication GUID (Firefox) but I thought you wanted this GUID to use as an ID.
I'm no super expert (and no English teacher :D ) but I thought that this is what you meant.
If everything works right Firefox should not accept twice the same extension ID. This is what I meant.

Don't be so modest, you've posted some SUPER tips! You're certainly an expert.

Also, you did understand me correctly: I wanted to (and did) give both extensions the same GUID in their install manifests. I guess we both don't understand why this is working. In any case, both "tab x" and "x" are working with the same GUID in that line you said to change.

P.S. And don't worry about your English. Your postings are much better written than many I've seen that come out of the USA.

Gee, all these supposed qualities... and you haven't yet seen my beautiful hair... :)
Seriously, in this part of install.rdf the ID should be changed into two different GUIDs, otherwise the two extensions will replace each other:
Code: Select all
<r:Description about="urn:mozilla:install-manifest">
    <id>tabx</id>

When you try to change this part
Code: Select all
<targetApplication>
      <r:Description>
        <id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</id>

you'll get this ugly message:

That's the GUI from Firefox!!! It says the extension is compatible with Firefox (it could be the GUI from Thunderbird as well...). If you change this lines it will generate exactly this error message...

Very simple. Install 7-zip and open en-US.jar: (path: firefox\chrome\en-US.jar\locale\browser\browser.dtd)

In browser.dtd find:
Code: Select all
<!ENTITY mainWindow.title "&brandFullName;">

and change it to:
Code: Select all
<!ENTITY mainWindow.title "">


Thank you. Much appreciated.
