Re: Firefox 66 shows many strange hotkeys to customize

Any update: Mozilla is incompetent and did not bother to fix this before the final Firefox 66 release. There is nothing I can do about this. At least it's buried in the gear icon menu. :sigh: Firefox 67 looks like it's getting minor improvements to it to be a bit less sloppy, but it still shows non-...

Re: Firefox 65.0.2 + Flagfox 6.1.11

Ok, glad everything got sorted out easily enough. (and before my late reply here) Just to be clear: Firefox provides a geolocation API to share the location of yourself ; Flagfox uses an IP location database to locate servers you connect to. Flagfox doesn't use this geolocation API at all; it instea...

Re: Firefox 65.0.2 + Flagfox 6.1.11

I just gave Firefox 65.0.2 a quick test, and saw no issues. Please post information about the supposedly wrong lookups, namely URLs and preferably also Geotool links (e.g. URL from clicking flag icon for default action). Minor notes on the versions: Firefox 65.0.2 is a Windows only update; everyone ...

Re: Firefox 66 shows many strange hotkeys to customize

Flagfox has had the ability to set custom hotkeys for all actions for about 9 years. (since Flagfox 4.0 in Feb 2010) When Mozilla set the addon universe on fire with the mandatory switch to the WebExtension API a bit over a year ago (Nov 2017), they did so without fully implementing many longstandin...

Re: FlagFox does not update

Are you sure there isn't the prompt for you to approve the permissions change to install the new version? Mozilla really screwed up how they handled WebExt permissions . Flagfox 6.1 adds support to use the new DNS API they added 6 months late, but Mozilla also added a new permission in order to do i...

Re: FlagFox does not update

Specifically, what versions of Firefox and Flagfox are you running? (don't say "latest"; please find the actual numbers) You can find your Firefox version in main menu -> help -> about. You can find the Flagfox version if you go to the Addon Manager (about:addons) -> Flagfox -> more. (Flagfox versio...

Re: Bruh, why do you hate SeaMonkey?

No offense intended, but I'm pretty sure Alex wasn't asking for a SeaMonkey ad. ;) Do you see any redeeming qualities of SeaMonkey? What do you think they would have to change to make it better in your eyes? To be clear, let me separate this into my decision with respect to Flagfox re-gaining SeaMon...

Re: How to disable annoying notification about me using an older version? (I plan to stay on Flagfox 5.2.3)

Just install Flagfox 5.2.11, which has a newer IP database. I continued to post monthly updates for Flagfox 5.2.x until the end of Firefox 52 ESR support, however they aren't allowed on Mozilla's Addons site, unfortunately. Flagfox 5.2.11 should be fine until the end of the year.

Re: Tor browser without icons.

Ok, did some more investigation here. It seems the browser setting in question here is actually in Firefox, but only enabled in the Tor Browser, at the moment. It's normally supposed to come with a prompt, which fails to show here, and they actually didn't seem to intend for this to affect extension...
