I have now uploaded a working version of 1.0, 1.01. Sorry for the previous incorrect upload. Just out of interest, would you like Sync to delete to contents of the folder you are copying to before it copies your files?

Steve, great work with

Steve, great work with Liberta. A few suggestions for sync though.

I am on the computer alot sometimes,a nd get a little bleary eyed, so maybe some text telling which step your on for each page of the app.

Also, the second step labels are a little unclear.

Explanation:
Ideas marked in *s

Step 1=

*Insert Step 1 Text*

Select what you would like to sync...

Pff -------> Local FF

*This step is fine but for select one text*

Step 2=

*Step 2 Text*

Firefox *Maybe PFF since it was the first selction*
"Please select a directory...."

*Maybe a label like Local Copy as it was second and this would be a logical flow from the first step*
"Please select a directory...."

Make labels flippable, ie: local first and Portable second also a possibility.

If this isn't possible then no worries, and hey, I might trey and mess with the source myself, despite no experience, I might figure something out.

I hope you don't mind my suggestions. Great work all around for the Liberta guys. Apps only get better with refinement (for the most part lol , but See MSOFFICE for an exception lol)

Awesome. I am currently

Awesome. I am currently running it automatically at PStart Startup, and then using it if needed, or closing it if not (in relation to my other post.)

I just like to be sure of what I'm doing, heheh, especially when I'm tired and bleary eyed, and the labels probably will help other people. Keep up the great work! So far I've used every Liberta Module and they all work great. (Finally tried Sync and Backup last night, worked good, I look forward to future releases.)

Auto path fill

Hey Steve,

Could the path to Firefox profile directories be automatically detected by reading %appdata%\mozilla\firefox\profiles.ini?

Yup

That's how I'm doing it with the sync program I've been working on (part of the next Suite release). The following code will give you the path to Firefox's default profile:

ReadEnvStr $APPDATAPATH "APPDATA"
ReadINIStr $0 "$APPDATAPATH\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini" "Profile0" "Path"

There are some instances where this isn't the default profile. Like, for instance, if someone has setup multiple ones using Profile Manager. In that case, you can actually look through Profile0, Profile1, etc and look for Default being set to 1. For example:

ReadINIStr $0 "$APPDATAPATH\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles.ini" "Profile0" "Default"
StrCmp $0 "1" ItMatches ItDont

And then handle things accordingly. Hope that helps...

- John

Nice.

I suppose NSIS can detect a directory? If it does, it can check if C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox exists, and offer it as a directory.

Yup again

It can. But I'm guessing you mean %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\profile.??? right? In that case, the check line -- based on the above -- is:

IfFileExists "$APPDATAPATH\Mozilla\Firefox\$0\*.*" DoIfExists DoIfNotExist

No...

I mean the actual Firefox EXE directory. If I were to sync my Firefox, I'd sync both directories -- but my Firefox is in D:\Progra~1\Mozilla Firefox\.

But, why?

That is weird. All my profile stuff/stuff I want to sync is in my App Data sub-folder.

I have my reasons...

Admittedly, the profile is the most important part -- but I often have extensions which modify the main Firefox folder (SpiderZilla, for example).

Ah.

I see said the blind man, but he couldn't see at all.
That's why they call me 'Old Man' Wink (and yes, they do call me that)

That is changing a lot with Office 2007 (office 12). It is much easier to find most functions now. Takes a day or two to get used to, though. /ramble

Ah, yes I've heard. But I bet the bloat will still be there. They CAN'T lose the bloat.
