    Start nagging Ciberblade. The TSG menu extension for FF doesn't work properly with version 3.6.2.

    I bumped up his thread about the extension. I guess I'll have to PM him about it. :p

    Feels the sting of the whip as it seers the flesh of my back that splits under the vicious strike. A welt instantly forming in the radiant heat alongside a light crimson trickle. My head bobbing up and down "yes'm, I be a coding" and scrambles for a keyboard and notepad.

    I don't think she was aiming for your back. She must be a bit out of practice. :D:p

    Hi Ladies,

    I have edited the menu.xul file according to the new TSG menu, however, I have done it in Linux on an ext3 filesystem, and I no longer have a working WinXP Pro SP2 system.

    The menu.xul file contains the proper ^M end-of-line crlf for Windows platforms. The menu.xul file resides in the chrome/content/tsg.jar directory path/file of the Firefox extensions subdirectory of the Firefox profile. The firefox profile path is differently located in Windows vs. Linux.

    Specifically, the tsg.jar file is a zip archive file and can be deflated with the unzip, winunzip or pkunzip command(s) and reconstructed with the zip command(s), etc. All that needs to be done is that the menu.xul file needs to be updated in a FAT filesystem, and the "zip -u tsg content/menu.xul" command issued where tsg refers to the tsg.zip (i.e. tsg.jar file renamed) in the same directory (I call it a working directory software wise).

    Then it would need to be tested after verifying that the menu.xul file is not unx and tx (but fat and -b )in the zipinfo command output against the tsg.zip archive file, and then of course renamed to tsg.jar and that file with the same permissions as the original tsg.jar file it replaces - and then the Firefox browser needs to be launched to see if the TSG Menu appears in the browser's main menu at the top and can select and properly execute to launch the new and old TSG web page forums.

    Any takers - contact me via email so I can email the menu.xul file to you as an attachment for the work described above if you understand what I have said - it would help if you have already developed a Firefox add-on, but if you think you can get it done, like I said, give me a holler in this thread and we will follow up via PM, or email as above.

    Update: The zip command to put things back together probably requires another parameter like -1 to get near (but higher) size as the current tsg.jar file.

    Also, when one compares putting the menu.xul file (I have cobbled up) the key thing is to verify with zipinfo against any new tsg.jar to make sure that every file/folder/directory component if fat and that the original tsg.jar zipinfo output and the new one look the same with no unx or -tx for the menu.xul (new file) - i.e. it has to be saved as a new file on a win32 fat file system, then renamed to tsg.jar from tsg.zip - then tested as a replacement tsg.jar file in the browser's profile prior to launching the browser to see if it works in the Firefox main menu and that it works for all of the forums.
    /end Update

    P.S. Ciberblade - you would be perfect for this! :)

    Lotusclat, how come it has to go through the whole underworld of PMs? Can't you just upload it here in a zip file?
    Also, have you updated anything other than the menu system?

    No. 3.6.12 was only a glimmer in the developer's eyes when I posted last March.
