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 6.1.9 update released

Flagfox 6.1.9 for Firefox 60+ has been released and is available for update and download from AMO.

Flagfox 6.1.9 changelog:

  • IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for December 2018
  • Improved favicon prefetching to allow for longer timeouts on startup

If the browser/system/connection was a bit strained, favicons could fail to be prefetched on first start because the timeout was short, sometimes resulting in default icons being shown when actual icons could’ve been downloaded and cached. I’d much prefer to not have to put my own timeouts on things, or even have any prefetching here, but the WebExt API was not designed with the ability to progressively load icons (like was trivially possible in the past; you may have sensed a pattern, here). Mozilla finally updated their API recently to allow icons to be updated after menu creation, though there’s not really a good way to switch to doing this whilst still supporting the current Firefox ESR (Extended Support Release), which of course is never supported with API fixes. It’s fine for now, I guess.
