Hi, I love liveclick and I had a little suggestion for you. I love using live bookmarks and live click because they are a lightweight alternative to a heavier RSS reading extension that takes up a whole tab or a sidebar, but I kind of like seeing the summary of the item as well as the headline, because sometimes the headline does not tell you much. However, oftentimes I am just looking through headlines and the tooltip is nice because it fixes Firefox's flaw of cutting off long headlines. I was thinking that perhaps you could show the summary in the tooltip as an option (not enabled by default because it may be somewhat annoying for people not used to having a huge tooltip appear). I was also thinking that perhaps you could make it so that it only displays the summary in the tooltip after a set delay, such as 3s hover on the headline or something like that. Anyway, cool extension and I hope to use it with Firefox 3 when it releases.

I like Liveclick, but there's one thing I can't figure out. I can't get the styles for unread items to work. I'd like to have unread items show up in bold, but no matter what I do, they all look the same. Anybody know what I'm doing wrong? I'm using version 0.2.5 w/ Firefox 2.0.0.11.

Hi!

I hope this wasn't posted already but I didn't see it.

Something I'd really love is to limit how many tabs are opened when autoloading feeds. I love the autoload/monitoring option, but if you've been away for a couple of days and have news sites on your feed list, it tends to crash the browser, obviously! :) That is if 20+ tabs are loaded when starting your first Firefox session. Maybe something like "load 10", and once those are read, load another remaining 10, and so forth. Maybe not possible to implement, but it would kick ass!

There's an extension compatibility problem: when both When both Autocomplete Manager and Liveclick installed and enabled, whenever a new window is opened from an existing window (e.g., by certain JavaScript links), Firefox hangs for several minutes, using 100% of the CPU according to Windows Task Manager. Also according to the Task Manager, kernel CPU usage when this happens is 0%. Other factors that may be involved are the fact that I have a lot of Live Bookmarks, and that I'm using a several-year-old laptop, which is therefore severely underpowered.

I've already sent an email about this to the owner of the Autocomplete Manager extension.

I'm the author of Autocomplete Manager. Yes, this is indeed a conflict. From a quick look, it seems that, upon opening a new window, in LC_Monitor.resetCounts(), LiveClick manipulates many bookmarks (livemarks?), causing a lot of asserts and unasserts on the bookmarks datasource, which in turn causes a lot of CPU activity on the part of my extension, since it has to monitor all bookmark additions and deletions, to add or remove them from the Autocomplete candidates list.

All this code will change for Firefox 3, which implements SQLite-based history and bookmarks, so this problem might be auto-fixed at that point. In the meantime, a solution to this probably entails me optimizing the handling of (un)asserts on the bookmarks datasource, and LiveClick not touching bookmarks that it doesn't need to.

And a bug report. I'm running Firefox 2.0 on Linux, and I noticed that LiveClick fails to work properly due to the way the alerts service is initialized. In particular, a statement in in LiveClick.startup() fails, causing the extension to malfunction.

The fix is simple. Instead of doing this:
if ("@mozilla.org/alerts-service;1" in Components.classes)
gLC_Alerts = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/alerts-service;1"].
getService( Components.interfaces.nsIAlertsService );

do this:

try {
gLC_Alerts = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/alerts-service;1"].
getService( Components.interfaces.nsIAlertsService );
}
catch (e) { }

I'm not sure if this is specific to my system, but it renders the extension inoperable. Please look into it.

The if ("@mozilla.org/alerts-service;1" in Components.classes) way of doing it is the correct way. There is probably something else wrong with your environment.

I'm not sure if there is something "wrong" with my environment, but while the condition above returns true, attempting to get the alerts service throws an exception. That might warrant a different way of handling the issue, for the sake of other users who might be experiencing the same problem.

Hmm. What is the exact error text of the exception being thrown?

Error: [Exception... "Invalid InterfaceID" nsresult: "0x80570018 (NS_ERROR_XPC_BAD_IID)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://liveclick/content/liveclick-overlay.js :: anonymous :: line 26" data: no]
Source File: chrome://liveclick/content/liveclick-overlay.js
Line: 26

This is with Firefox 2.0 on Fedora Core 4 (kernel Linux 2.6.11). Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks.

I am on Windows XP
Code: Select all
var gLC_Alerts;
if ("@mozilla.org/alerts-service;1" in Components.classes)
  gLC_Alerts = Components.classes["@mozilla.org/alerts-service;1"].
  getService( Components.interfaces.nsIAlertsService );

Firefox 2.0.0.11 result (no error)
Code: Select all
[xpconnect wrapped nsIAlertsService]
QueryInterface: function QueryInterface() {
    [native code]
}
showAlertNotification: function showAlertNotification() {
    [native code]
}

Minefield result (no error)
Code: Select all
[xpconnect wrapped nsIAlertsService]
QueryInterface: function QueryInterface() {
    [native code]
}
showAlertNotification: function showAlertNotification() {
    [native code]
}

Are you using an official mozilla.org build or one of those iceweasel thingies? Did you try with a new clean profile with only Liveclick installed?

I'm using the official 2.0 version for Linux, no mods. This happens even with a clean profile. I assume that, on Linux, even though the alerts service component is present (hence the condition is true), it does not support the nsIAlertsService interface (hence the exception)?

Hmm. This appears to be Bug 360435 (nsIAlertsService not available under Linux anymore)

Yes. Maybe this will get fixed in Firefox 3, but in the meantime...

There are two things you could do.

1. Go to the bug and mark it confirmed. Also add a comment that you are still seeing the problem on 2.0.exact version. Also add the "regression" keyword to the keyword field.

2. Go to irc://moznet and ask in #extdev about what else can be used.
