I want to use this extensions:
Tabbrowser Extensions <- which is the one of the most important
Adblock
Download Manager Tweak
Gmail Notifier
Launchy
Slim Extension List
SmoothWheel
Stop/Reload

I moved from Apr 18th to Apr 29th and my browser went kooky.

Among other things, the bookmarks toolbar items disappeared, and putting the "How'd I Get Here" button on my bookmarks toolbar FUBARed the toolbar (a million icons appeared there) and the browser stopped responding.

I got miniT (drag and indicator) to install and work, which didn't work on yesterday's build. I've also got Flashblock, AiO and Show Failed URL installed and working on builds since 22 April. Now to get Undoclosetab to work, and I'm all set.

I'm using the build from the 19th right now and it works great with all extensions. TabBrowser preferances does not work with it but I tried out TabMix and found it even better!

I got adblock to work with 20050428. I got the dev build from
http://adblock.mozdev.org/dev.html

There are other non-extension regressions in the 29th builds so far so I'm not moving up yet.

It's still Adblock 0.5 d2 nightly 39 but at least the version was changed to be valid -> 0.5.2.039.
Extensions will only fail now if they don't have a valid version or a GUID.

For example adblock now has:
Code: Select all
   <em:id>{34274bf4-1d97-a289-e984-17e546307e4f}</em:id>       <!-- Adblock CID/guid? -->
   <em:version>0.5.2.039</em:version>

The extensions weren't broken until the changes in the 23rd build. I was using the 22nd build until the 28th.

How did you get that to work? In both the 290405 and 300405 Linux builds, I'm now able to perform the "Install" dialog for extensions, but they always are listed as "... will be installed the next time you restart Firefox", no matter how many times I restart it.

What am I missing?

Stop and Reload has no problems and works with all themes.

You could try putting the folder extensions (without stuff like Extensions.rdf and installed-extensions.txt) into your new profile. On WinXP it works well that way (I need 4 to 5 restarts to get them all to work).

Ah, Danke Schon. It's the bookmarks code, then.

But, no, I don't use TBE. Will stay on 18th Apr or try 22th Apr then.

So it's the tab code that's broken? I use Tab Mix.

Do we see a pattern here? Hmm.
