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.

Flagfox 6.1.14 update released

Flagfox 6.1.14 for Firefox 60+ has been released and is available for update and download from AMO.

Flagfox 6.1.14 changelog:

  • IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for May 2019

Due to Mozilla’s recent catastrophic screw up with all addon signing certificates, you should make sure to upgrade to the latest version of Firefox: 66.0.5 for main release and 60.6.3 for ESR release. (formerly 66.0.4 & 60.6.2, prior to second fix update) Virtually all addons for all people on the planet are effected, Flagfox included. (a small handful continued working, but it’s rare; yes, this was as bad as it sounds) Older versions of Firefox can work if you let it install the earlier partial fix via the studies system, though many people disable that. (update instructions; more info from Mozilla)

Flagfox 6.1.12 update released

Flagfox 6.1.12 for Firefox 60+ has been released and is available for update and download from AMO.

Flagfox 6.1.12 changelog:

  • IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for March 2019
  • Fixed wrong action being deleted if also reordering after deleting
  • Fixed favicon toggling forgetting pending deletes’ disabled states
  • Fixed hover menu open forcing actions list scroll to focused item

This update fixes a few bugs I found in the options page, in addition to the routine monthly IPDB update.
