Respects to Cusser..... FYI from thread http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic ... 448#523448 there is a hack to Cusser's cool extension to open it in a new window or the same window both involve hacking the contextarea.js and substituting for
Code: Select all
getBrowser().addTab(searchUrl);
to either
1. same window
2. new window

just follow the directions in the aforementioned thread

I contemplated building in a pref for that, but I wasn't going to do it unless anyone requested it. Want me to do it for you, AnonEmoose?

This might be a good one to have for all.

;-)

Will try out once the new extension manager is working properly (probably another couple weeks).

Yeah this is what I used to use Conquery for. But this is better for my purposes becasue it has the icons in the menu, quick & easy to find Google or Amazon or what ever.

Another great extension Cusser. I remember you having some hard starts on the Image Toolbar and now another great extension. Maybe you could link to the resources/references you used to ramp up on extension development?

Mostly http://www.xulplanet.com and other people's extensions. I have a history programming in C, with a bit of C++ and OPL (PSION language), so I managed to adapt to JavaScript pretty quickly. As for XUL, it's just like HTML, so using XULPlanet as a reference, it's relatively easy.

Oh yeah, I'll update this soon, I'm a bit busy right now. On the plus side, you can now get 6 of my current 8 extensions from the Extension Room and possibly Firefox Help.

If you can add options to open tabs in either foreground/background would also be great. Firefox opens Web Search tabs in the background.
