Yesterday, I participated the Beijing Open party. I heard Beijing Open party several months ago, but until yesterday, I haven't have chance to see how was it. So, that was my first time to go there, and frankly, it's a really exited experience. Normally there are many optional topics, which brought by attendees. After attendees submit the topic, who prepare topic to do presentation, give a simple introduce, everyone need to vote which topics could be given presentation today. But this time, there are several special topic about Firefox: The over all goals of Mozilla’s Localization Program over 2009. A new software library that has been developed for l10n tools to be created . Firefox l10n introduction The speaker of the first topic, Seth Bindernagel is from Mozila US MountView office.

Firefox3中安装Firefox2的扩展插件

很多Firefox2的扩展或插件在Firefox3中无法安装使用,以下是常见的几中方法,使得旧版本的扩展可以在新版安装。不能安装旧版插件的原因是版本的检查不匹配。所以解决的方法就是跳过版本兼容性的检查。

方法一:修改插件里的支持版本信息
首先将插件下载到本地。FireFox的插件扩展名是xpi,其实是一个zip压缩打包文件,用winrar等可以打开。找到里面的install.rdf文件,可以找到如下内容:
<em:targetApplication>
<Description>
<em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id>
<em:minVersion>1.5</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>3.0b3pre</em:maxVersion>
</Description>
</em:targetApplication>
minVersion和maxVersion就定义了该插件可以支持的FireFox版本,将3.0b3pre改成3.0,保存后重新安装插件即可。

方法二:设置FireFox,跳过兼容性检查
在FireFox3地址栏输入about:config,出来一个警告页面,不理他,“我保证我会小心”。然后点右键,选择“新建”->“布尔”,创建一个布尔变量
extensions.checkCompatibility,值为false,表示不检查扩展插件的兼容性。
同样的步骤再创建一个布尔变量extensions.checkUpdateSecurity,值为false,不检查安全更新。重启,OK

方法三:使用现成的扩展插件 Nightly Tester Tools

Firefox 的地震警报插件 - eQuake Alert

2008年5月12日,中国四川汶川遭受了强烈的地震,使得人们对地震的关注突然密切起来。
对于每天在电脑前工作的我们如何尽快知道在哪里发生了地震呢?
如果你使用Firefox,那么这里推荐一个插件可以帮助你知道在世界范围内哪里发生了地震,并报告一些基本的信心包裹位置和地震强度。你可以设定震级的阈值,当有地方发生地震时,如果震级超过你的设定警报阈值,你的Firefox就会剧烈的晃动起来,晃动的程度根据震级大小逐渐增强。用这个工具可以跟踪余震的信息。这个地震信息的后台数据来自美国地质局的实时检测数据。

推荐一个firefox扩展FoxLingo :终极语言工具!

目前支持45个语言。34个免费在线翻译服务。大家可以尝试一下,很酷。但是不爽的一点是,在简体中文的locale下,目前这个扩展的自身的菜单和按钮上的中文似乎没有简体的,只有繁体中文。希望能早日有简体中文的菜单。
