Latest Firefox?
« on: 2012.08.09, 20:24:37 »
What/Where is the latest Firefox for eCS.  The Mozilla site lists Windows, Linux, MAC Android, no eCS.

eCS 2.1 installs Firefox 3.5.3

But I'm having lots of hangs with this version.

Hi jjurban

The last version I know is Firefox 10.0.5.
http://www.os2world.com/content/view/21783/2/

It is available for download on the netlabs ftp.
ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/incoming/mozilla/firefox-10.0.5.en-US.os2.zip

ohh...And don't forget to update the kLibc library.

The eCS FF builds after 8.01 give me trouble with Forecastfox -the weather widget. I constantly experience "connection error"; that's what the widget says. It simply doesn't work in the latest FFs (including the latest (developer)build you pointed to ethron). Do somebody recognize the problem? Moving back to FF 8.01 solves the problem.

Hi Melf

I don't use that extension myself so am wondering if it is simply a case of the extension needs updating to work with later Firefox builds/


Regards

Pete

No Pete, I don't think so. I use the very latest update. I've tried this on FF>8 in Win and it works fine.

There's a bug on our Mozilla where it doesn't pass the online/offline status correctly to add-ons. I've fixed other add-ons by removing the check but looking quickly at Forecastfox I can't find where it tests for online status  :(

Hi jjurban

About the firefox hanging. Maybe it is the same problem with 'gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled' I used to have.

On the browser go to "about:config" (on the URL bar) and set 'gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled' to False.
Check if this tip works for you.
