Hello everyone !

I'm sorry to tell you that due to lack of free time I can't work on this addon as much as I would like.
It's now almost a year I didn't release any updates, but I will try to update on very urgent bugs (like new version of Firefox not working anymore).

I apologize that I can't work on it and don't read this forum very often.
If you have questions, you can ask them on the forum, I will answer them when I visit but it could takes few weeks, please don't expect quick help.. I'm also not checking my mails often (even less than the forum).
If you want to join me faster, you can find me on gbatemp.net (same nick name).

PS: I'm keeping this topic open in case you want to reply and leave comments/insults/etc.

I tested it successfully up to Firefox 28.0a1
I tried different settings and all worked fine.

If you have a specific problem, please let me know which one as I may have missed it in my tests (I don't use all the features on a daily basis).

Hi. Why won't you just sign the last beta as release on mozilla site?
It still works, except now requires to turn off carebear derp in the last FF (43.0). It worked for more than a year - the only annoying thing is that now it fails to make any nested directories, but adding "?" in ".*/" filters isn't big deal. The point is, for most part last beta does its job nicely.

If you want someone to maintain a branch (at least after it really breaks), upload the repository from code.google to a healthier host, like github. I'm sure someone will pick up.

Fixed in beta long ago.

it refuses to use unsigned addons (doesn't even ask confirmation), this "feature" is turned off by adding new config variable (boolean): xpinstall.signatures.required = false

You are right, maybe I should use github, this way everyone can work on it.
I'll try to make it signed on AMO, if they accept the current broken revision (private browsing detection is disabled completely as I don't know how to do it).

When they remove or change functions, they don't explain how to update existing addons.
I could check how other addons are doing it.

I'll dedicate some time to this addon to fix the major issue (signing, private browsing).

I uploaded the latest beta to mozilla.
It passed the tests and is available to the development channel.

note that private browsing detection is disabled.
