SPLASH!

Like many people here, I've disabled the default splash screen of Firefox Portable. I am using the Add On SPLASH! to make a photo of my Gran daughter my splash screen.

Over the course of my work day, I may use 4-5 PCs. Is there any way to make the path of the .jpg that SPLASH! uses relative? That would allow her photo to always be my splash screen instead of getting a blank box when the drive shows up as anything other than E://

I've search the forums and haven't found anything about this.

Thanks in advance,

Berdar

Download nsis from

Download nsis from Sourceforge

Goto the portablefirefox directory, others, firefoxportablesource

in there is a nis file and a jpg, replace the jpg with the image you want and simply recompile. never used nsis before and took me a few moments to figure it out.

you then have a firefoxportable.exe that has the new splash screen built in.

Yes

The author of the extension posted here and he has added the following:
%PROFILE% or something like that.
Put it in your profile folder and then use %PROFILE%\hi.jpg

Forgive Me

But I'm having a bit of an issue.

I've downloaded NSIS and the required plugins.
I've loaded the NIS file and found the following lines.

DisplaySplash:
StrCmp $DISABLESPLASHSCREEN "true" SkipSplashScreen
;=== Show the splash screen before processing the files
InitPluginsDir
File /oname=$PLUGINSDIR\splash.jpg "${NAME}.jpg"
newadvsplash::show /NOUNLOAD 2000 200 0 -1 /L $PLUGINSDIR\splash.jpg

I know that I have to past my .jpg in to one of these lines and I've tried them all. Which one?

Also, where should I copy my .jpg to? It seems that it needs to be somewhere other than a file in the /firfoxportable dir.

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience

The JPG

Must be in the FirefoxPortableSource directory and be named FirefoxPortable.jpg
The line:

File /oname=$PLUGINSDIR\splash.jpg "${NAME}.jpg"

does it.
${NAME} equates to FirefoxPortable so FirefoxPortable.jpg

Still not working for me

I renamed my jpg to firefoxportable.jpg then placed it in the FirefoxPortableSource dir.

I then opened the NIS file with NSIS and recompiled. Because of the name change, I shouldn't have to change any of the script, correct?

Thanks again for all of your help

Correct

No changes needed in the script.

Any more ideas?

I'm not sure what else I can do.

Fixed IT....

Thank you everyone.

I wasn't replacing the EXE file in the Firefoxportable directory with the one that NSIS created.

Thank you all again.
