Is it possible? Yes. Is it easy? Not really, due to the way that
extension manager works in Firefox 1.0 -- the extension manager in
Firefox 1.1 is much nicer and works better with Linux. I also don't
provide devel packages for either because of some packaging conflict
issues with the mozilla package, so it is slightly more difficult as well.
Hey Christopher -- is the new extension manager going to deal with the
updating-per-user-extensions-and-themese issue at all? Or is the idea going
to be to break that completely and ask people to install extensions
Or, is there any way to mix-and-match gracefully?
I'm actually working on packaging up Deer Park Alpha 1, which is
early alpha release of Firefox 1.1, which should hit rawhide soon. I
will also get preview builds of xulrunner which should help to alleviate
this problem. I hope the situation will be much nicer for FC5.
Me too. :)
Oh, on a totally 'nother topic -- I saw some work recently on python
bindings for XPCOM. Is that likely to make it into XULRunner in the, like,
predicatable future? That would so rock.
