XULRunner 1.9

I know there was a similar responseless request some two years ago but as there has been a new release parallel to the Firefox 3 release, I would like to request this one. I think it could be quite interesting to be able to run portable XUL apps outside of Firefox. The latest version may be found here:

Not Really

Nearly every XUL app ships with a custom patched version of XULRunner... all incompatible with each other... making the ability to have a single XULRunner and run multiple apps from it simply a fantasy. Sad

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

Speaking of which, I could

Speaking of which, I could not manage to get Media Coder to work with XULRunner. While it works perfectly fine with Firefox.

XUL custom apps

Although I didn't have that in mind - that would have been interesting. Running all Mozilla, XUL, Gecko based Applications from one XULRunner may have saved quit some space and maybe enabled some central tweaking. What I rather had in mind was small self built apps and GUI frontends I was experimenting with on the lines of examples found here http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Category:XULRunner:Examples or at XUL-planet or other places I can't remember at the moment. So as example I don't want to use XULRunner to run my Thunderbird or Firefox but rather some selfbuilt app I use to navigate my portable archive harddrive.

-edit-
I just found this:
The upcoming version ships with a complete XULRunner runtime, and actually lets you turn Firefox into XULRunner with a simple command line switch.

now I got to find out how this works for me ...
