Flagfox & Pale Moon, an idea

If the Pale Moon fork has enough users, I might consider posting some updates to the current major version there, after the big update on the main branch. For now, mark me down as a definite "maybe". ;)

…dealing with Pale Moon is so far on the back-burner that it's cold. No decisions yet, one way or another.
Hi, DaveG! :)
If I may make a suggestion:
For now, all that would be necessary to host Flagfox 5.2.3 at the Pale Moon site are the following:
  • Add the target block to the install.rdf, like so:

    Code: Select all

                <!-- Pale Moon -->
  • Contact Lootyhoof at Github or PM forum and give him the modified xpi file to host Flagfox at Pale Moon Add-ons Site.
Actually, since I know you are busy trying to get up to speed with the WebExtension Apocalypse, I can do these for you, if you like. :geek: I just need a 64x64 alpha transparent icon in the PNG format to give to him (to go in Add-ons Manager). If you don't even time to give me the icon, I would just submit the xpi file for now. Bascially, I just need your permission, and I can take care of the whole thing for you.

HTH. Cheers!

Yes, he really should continue maintaining the 5.x branch for us Pale Moon users.

I mean, I'm already beginning to get messages that my "...installed version of Flagfox is now more than a few months old. Flagfox uses an internal IP address location database to look up server locations...".

However, I can't update, and besides, one of the reasons why I use Pale Moon is because I hate the WebExtensions framework and its limitations!

Looks like a number of Pale Moon users are getting the same database notification. First off, many thanks for this extension. I've used it for years, both on Firefox and more recently on Pale Moon. A quick search on the Pale Moon forum shows that Flagfox rates very highly among users of this fork.

To second gracious1 above - the Pale Moon add-ons site hosts numerous extensions that have been tweaked to ensure continued compatibility. It looks like Flagfox v5.2.3 will continue to be compatible with Pale Moon, it's just a matter of database updates. Were you inclined to support this hosting, I (and many other users) would be very grateful.

Many thanks -

Just registered to thank you for your great extension and also kindly ask if you could find a way to add/extend Pale Moon support.

as a Basilisk user (the new browser from the Pale Moon devs) I'd like to ask is there a way to manually update the IP database from the webext addon to the old xpcom addon
maybe you could update the old xpcom addon with the new IP databases and host it outside of AMO for us Firefox-ESR, Pale Moon, Basilisk, Cyberfox and Waterfox users who still need xpcom style addons and afaik none of the above browsers need signed addons they all can work with unsigned addons
