Flagfox 6.1.20 update released

Flagfox 6.1.20 for Firefox 60+ has been released and will be available for update and download from AMO as soon as it is approved by Mozilla.

Flagfox 6.1.20 changelog:

  • IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for November 2019

Flagfox 6.1.18 update released

Flagfox 6.1.18 for Firefox 60+ has been released and will be available for update and download from AMO as soon as it is approved by Mozilla.

Flagfox 6.1.18 changelog:

  • IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for September 2019

I had planed to update the API used to run user-JS in custom actions to use a newly created one, but I didn’t yet. It is delayed until whenever it is that I actually finish that. For now, this is just the routine monthly IPDB update.

Flagfox 6.1.16 update released

Flagfox 6.1.16 for Firefox 60+ has been released and is available for update and download from AMO.

Flagfox 6.1.16 changelog:

  • IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for July 2019
  • Updated country names list for North Macedonia name change (en/de/ru)

The only locales Maxmind updated for Macedonia, now North Macedonia, were English, German, and Russian, so those are the only 3 locales that have this one string properly translated. Everyone else gets a fallback to English for it. Eventually I need to find some way of getting translators access to update things in here again. Babelzilla is still stuck in the stone-ages and doesn’t support WebExt packaged addons (last I checked), though I’ve yet to test an inglorious hack on my side of things that might get things working with shims (assuming anyone would still use Babelzilla). For now, though, this is “fine”.

Oh, and whilst I did notice the change when first announced, I totally forgot about it until I was recently reminded by watching Jeopardy (a long running US TV quiz show), which had Macedonia’s name change as a final question. My mind went: “I know this… read that somewhere… somebody in Europe that starts with an ‘M’… oh… yeah… I never did get around to updating Flagfox for ‘North Macedonia’, did I?…” So, yeah, thanks Jeopardy!

Update 2019-8-1:
Mozilla Add-ons is having some sort of issue and has still not approved the file for release. I’ve yet to receive an explanation, one week later. I will update here once this update is actually released.

Update 2019-8-2:
I’ve still yet to get a reply from AMO as to what went wrong, but this version has finally been approved.

Flagfox 6.1.15 update released

Flagfox 6.1.15 for Firefox 60+ has been released and is available for update and download from AMO.

Flagfox 6.1.15 changelog:

  • IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for June 2019

As far as I’m aware, Mozilla has completely fixed the catastrophic addon authentication breakage from last month, so everything should be working fine again.

On a separate note, Mozilla seems to have finally gotten around to fixing some issues with their addon submission validation system and it is no longer convinced the locale files are full of naughty words.
