A service is a singleton object implementing one or more XPCOM interfaces and registered with Gecko during startup. Normally it provide some functionality that is required from lots of places such as looking up preference settings, creating new windows, locating files, displaying prompt or password dialog boxes and so on. Embedders may wish to override some of the default service implementations with their own. For example, the default prompt service uses XUL to render prompt dialogs and embedders may wish to render them in a way more appropriate for their application and platform.. How do I load a page?
Get thensIWebNavigation interface on your webbrowser and call the loadURI method with the appropriate URI and flags. How do I block a load? Implement the nsIWebProgressListener interface and register it with the appropriate web browser object via the nsIWebBrowser::addWebBrowserListener() method. Amazon search xul. How to create Firefox extensions. Extensions - MDC. Modify and extend Mozilla applications Add-ons add new functionality to Gecko-based applications such as Firefox, SeaMonkey, and Thunderbird.
Typically, extensions modify the “chrome” of their target application—the user interface and the scripts that add functionalty to that interface. However, it is also possible for extensions to include compiled code in the form of XPCOM components. Extension technologies You will almost certainly need to use the following technologies, although it is not necessary to be an expert in them. XUL (XML User-Interface Language). More advanced extensions may require the following technologies. XBL (XML Binding Language). Getting started Setting up your environment. Packaging Firefox/Thunderbird Extensions. Ben Goodger, 05/17/2004 Introduction This document describes how to create extensions for Firefox 0.9 and newer, and Thunderbird 0.7 and newer.
It is a library that provides frozen API for XUL apps and embedders of gecko. The end-goal is to provide a library that only exports frozen symbols. This does not mean that all the *interfaces* would be frozen, but only that the link-time symbols would be few, well-defined, and frozen. Right now the ordinary mozilla build has many shared libraries, both "components" and "dependent libraries" that make up gecko. libxul intends to replace this mix of shared libraries with, a static build of "gecko" including XPCOM, networking, DOM, layout, rendering, and embedding modules in one shared library. It would be madness to attempt a dramatic change in our linking strategy and build system all at once. In addition, some (many?) The Incremental Game Plan Already completed: combine libs from tier 1/2/9 into one "libxul". Appendix A: Maintaining the Developer Build. Xul.html. Others Online. Privacy and Security Add-ons for Firefox 2.
I thought that it would be a nice idea to compile a list of privacy and security related add-ons for Firefox 2.0.
The list is not complete but I think I have everything covered with those add-ons, feel free to add your top picks in the comments. Let's go. Please note that while most add-ons have been created for Firefox 2 or previous versions of the browser, they should work just fine in the latest official versions as well.
