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...

Re: Tor browser without icons.

And here I am, using a forum like a bug tracker, again. In any case, I installed Flagfox into Tor in debug mode and error messages tell the story, e.g.: [CACHE] fetched & cached favicon: "https://www.virustotal.com/favicon.ico" util.js:47:47 Blocked moz-extension://596cfc7a-0384-4468-9cb0-122d535367...

Re: Tor browser without icons.

One minor follow up thing: I did just test this, so I do know it doesn't properly load the icons, however your screenshots are specifically with the icons disabled via the checkbox at the top of the Flagfox options page. I assume you tried clicking it to troubleshoot. With them disabled, there's no ...

Re: Tor browser without icons.

Not the question above, but just to answer the similar, frequently asked one: The Tor Browser won't be able to have the flags, as Tor and other proxies hide the locations of things that connect through them, and it goes both ways. (local DNS requests can be used to get around this, but doing so in t...

Re: Bruh, why do you hate SeaMonkey?

So.. I ditched Firefox when they started including adware in the browser. Adware? Only things I can think of are the defaults for the new tab page, which I just disabled and forgot about, and that Mr. Robot BS, which I never saw. So I moved to Pale Moon, but then I ditched it when the developer ref...
