While installing the FC3 version of FireFox, you are able to install several extensions - tools to make life easier
After upgrading to FF 1.0.2, serveral extensions where gone. Here is a list of extensions i've installed before the update was available:
Image Zoom 0.1.7 (zomm pics inside webpages) -> not compatible with 1.0
Foxy Tunes 1.0 (handle XMMS via browser)
fireFTP 0.84.3 (ftp-client)
ViewCookies 1.2 (check page source )
Thumbs 0.2 -> not compatible with 1.0 (also if it is stated out on webpage!)
ChatZila 0.9.66 (IRC plugin)
Download Tweak Manager 0.6.3 (add more functionality for downloads)
Close Tab on Double Click 0.1.2 (very useful for tabbed browsing) -> not compatible with 1.0
Especially the last one is very usefull. After updating FF, i was a bit confused why the doubleclick won't work any more...
If you open the extension window (Menu - Tools - Extensions) , you'll see all disabled extensions didn't working with current version of FF.
All Extensions showing "Disabled - not compatible with FireFox 1.0" should be un-installed (right click the extension and select uninstall - or press the uninstall button )
Adding the functionality of doubleclicking tabs again:
Here -> http://twanno.mozdev.org/installation.html
you'll find an Extension called "Tab Clicking Options 0.2.1". After installing this tool - and restarting FF - you're able to configure the doubleclick again
The Trab with adding search engines:
It's a permission problem: normal user has no chance to change files in /usr/bin/firefox ...
Also after updating to firefox-1.0.2 the problem still exists...
1. quit browser
2. open terminal and get root access (su)
3. start firefox via terminal (firefox)
4. insert the needed search engings with firefox via "Add Engines"
5. quit firefox
6. exit terminal
7. start firefox from FC3 menu
the search engines will appear...
Maybe this problem will be fixed in future releases...
