Webmail addon

Will not work with Webmail Notifier. (A reccomendeded addon) It willnot remember my Email Adresses.

The guy who acts like he knows what he's talking about.

Recommended?

I don't believe the Webmail Notifer is a recommended addon on this site, so if it's not Firefox 3 compatible yet there's really nothing for us to be concerned about, especially since this is a test version.

Also, if it doesn't remember your e-mail address (form field?), then that's a Firefox issue.

No,

The addon checks to see if I have new mail in my email address. I go to a new computer, and it has no emails to check. Also, crash reports are stored on the PC. And here are recommended addons. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/recommended. And there is a folder titled "extensions" in the school PC.

Edit: I have images of leftovers from Mozila firefox. I'll post them soon. I need to get to my home PC.

The guy who acts like he knows what he's talking about.

Firefox 3

has made a significant change to the API for its secure storage area (where it keeps passwords and the like), which means that any and all addons that use it to store config are BROKEN until they are updated.

If you're going to use a pre-release version of the browser, you'll have to get used to this, since if they update the addons, it will break them for the current production stable 2.0.0.x series.

Even once FF3 is released, it could take a long time before all the addons you use are updated, even never in some cases, if the author has abandoned them.

The correct place to request assistance is from the author of the specific addon in question.

But anyway, this thread really belongs in the support forum.

-_-

No, The addon IS Firefox 3 compatable, its just, never mind.

Steviosiak, please

You've been here long enough to know that this type of post doesn't belong in a release announcement.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Sorry

I forgot. Also, apparently it was my flat. I never saved my addon settings. But Firefox will leave a small amount of data behind. Here is a photo of Me looking at what firefox left behind in Pea Zip, each time going one folder deeper.(extensions folder was empty, so I didn't take a photo of it)

And Again

This does NOT belong in a release announcement. Support, bug reports, etc all belong in the forums. You know that.

Sorry

I didn't realize that. Im sorry.

login sessions

Does your ff3 portable remember website login sessions? I have to re-login everytime i start ff3. No problem with non-portable ff3. Is this a bug or am i missing something?
Already configured to accept all cookies until they expire. No clearing on exit.

Freezes!!!!!!

my firework repitedly freezes. can any one let me y. i have test it in several pc.

Freezes all the time

This version freezes all the time on Windows XP sp3, it took almost 3 minutes to write this message here.
The original rc2 from mozilla's site doesn't have this kind of freezing on this pc or others.

Tab mix plus

Firefox portable is really important. But why cannot tab mix plus be installed? It is really useful but unfortunately not compatible with firefox portable 3 Candidate 2. Is there any way to add tab mix plus to firefox portable 3 c2.

Support

Support questions belong in the Firefox Portable Support Forums, and not as comments on a news story.

Also, this is not a Firefox Portable issue, so it belongs on the Mozilla Support Forums instead.

To answer your question, the author of the extension hasn't updated it. There is nothing we can do about it.
