I signed up for Shutterfly's photo service - I have friends that rave about the service, and it all seems good so far. The problem is that Shutterfly's plug-in for mass uploading of pictures crashes my Firefox Portable. They specifically work with Firefox and have had no similar problems there.
With all the users of Firefox Portable, is anyone else successfully using Shutterfly? [ie: is it a problem specific to my computer?]
Is there a way I get someone else to try Shutterfly and see if they can duplicate this error?
If it is a real problem and not just me, does anyone have advice I can pass on to Shutterly's tech people so they can modify their plug in to also work with Firefox Portable?
This is part of the message I got back from their tech support:
I must say that this is the first time I've heard of Portable Firefox, but now that I've done some research into it, I think I can say pretty much for sure that it is specifically this version that doesn't work with our plugin. Our plugin not only installs as a plugin within the Firefox folders, but also installs a file into the Operating System as well, and it requires that file be there in order for the plugin to work. One thing that might work is if you kept a copy of the executable installer for the plugin on the flash drive, and simply installed it on each computer you were using at the time.
I have filed a bug on this issue for our Engineering and IOPS teams to take a look at, but I would expect it to take a while before I can get any sort of testing or development done. Your best bet, however, is to just stick with a standard installation of Firefox and a standard installation of our plugin for best results. If I find anything else out about this, I will let you know, and if you find out something or figure something out, let us know, I'm sure the Engineers would love to hear it. :0)~
