Hi, I'm a starter I've followed many beginning tutorials for Hello world add on! My problem is, Firefox can't see the addon, When I clicked add-on section from the tools, I can see my addon is right there with a (!) mark. Do you have any idea why is that?
Advantages of using jar archive in extension
Although I know your question is four years (!) old, it may still help someone.
I run into exactly the same thing just 2 weeks ago, but solved it myself after lots of groping in the dark.
My development folder was %userprofile%\ffext on Windows.
My app be called 'myapp', so my dev folder was %userprofile%\ffext\myapp where all my files resided, such as:
This application, zipped WITH the 'myapp' folder, did not work!!
Instead, if you ENTER 'myapp' directory and THEN zip your extension, it will work!!
(thus leaving out the path)
I'd love to see it working with the path inside, too, though. The way it is ATM, it's just awkward - especially for beginners it's awfully confusing.
Rule of thumb: if the name of your application appears as a directory in the zip, AND the appname is the ONLY thing you see at this level, it will not work. You can, of course, create a folder, "myapp_pre", put 'install.rdf" there, and MOVE all the 'myapp' directory in so that it appears as the subdirectory of "myapp_pre" Then you can enter myapp_pre, and zip the thing from there and it WILL work if you adapt paths accordingly (/myapp/chrome/content instead of /chrome/content, etc.)
If the install.rdf is not DIRECTLY accessible on root level and instead resides in a subdirectory (be it even 100% identical to your application path), the installer will fail. That's just a huge flaw in the concept IMHO.
It ought to search at least in both .\install.rdf and <name of your application>\install.rdf.
Where do I actually put my Helloworld folder for my addon?
I've currently put it in this path
C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\extensions
But nothing is happening.
Feel free to start a new thread.
the bash build.sh script on http://kb.mozillazine.org/Bash_build_script does not work with any Manifest Flags (cp. http://mdn.beonex.com/en/Chrome_Registration). The file below corrects the regular expression and enables use of those manifest flags. Also the file below ignores any CVS and .svn directories
