Firefox & Netcraft Toolbar add-on (part II)

June 25, 2007

As I told you here, I have a “1 inch high” grey botton bar in Firefox when I run it while I’m off-line.

I reported this to Netcraft Support; they told me they know this problem exists, and how to “fix it” (“simply restart Firefox” :)).

Furthermore, Mozilla developers told them this problem will ben fixed in “the next release“.

I’m experiencing this situation since Firefox 1.5, what “next release” do they mean? “we believe Firefox 3 will solve it“.

Firefox & Netcraft Toolbar add-on

June 22, 2007

A few days ago I uploaded Firefox to v2.
After some tests, I decided that it was the right time to re-enable netcrafttoolbar, and so I did it.
Unfortunately, I discovered that an old problem was still there, waiting for me. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
I hoped time fixed everything (cit.: salacadula magicabula bibidibobidibรน ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) but it wasn’t.

Here is a screenshot of what Firefox show, when I’m off-line and run it.
firefox and netcraft toolbar
Please, have a look at bottom left corner.
Do you see a red “^” ?
Is still there ?
Is bottom bar 1 inch high ?
Please, tell me it’s not, tell me it’s not!

I think it’s time to ask to Netcraft team or Firefox team, or maybe both ๐Ÿ˜‰ .
First time I saw it, I thought it was due to not-so-friendly versions of Firefox and Netcraft Toolbar; it was Firefox 1.5 and Netcraft Toolbar _some_what_version_ .
Now I’m running the latest versions of both software, and I’ve no excuses.

I’m telling it’s my fault (something related my my pc), neither Firefox nor Netcraft’s fault.
Now it’s time to investigate.
I’ll let you know.
