    When you have “force links that open in new window” enabled as “new tab” in the advanced options, then if a link contains a window with different “window size”, The whole application is resized to the size of that window.

    This is a very annoying bug.

    All 1.0 blockers, hopefully, but certainly not all known bugs! Look at the roadmap: All 1.0 blockers, hopefully, but certainly not all known bugs! Look at the roadmap: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/roadmap.html

    help help, ALL of my themes and extensions are voided!

  5. Ed Pegg Jr Says:

    I’m in the same position as joshua — I lost 20 extensions and all themes.

    Will 1.0 be released so that it works with nothing? Personally, I would much rather have the many wonderful extensions and themes over fixing whatever bug/issue is prompting this wholesale erasure.

    See peter(6) daily posts for the work-around for your extensions:
    Easy workaround, Close Firefox,
    open \%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\randomname\extensions\Extensions.rdf
    and change maxVersion=”0.10″ to maxVersion=”1.0″ (there may be a few).

  7. anon Says:

    fyi, simply changing maxVersion=”1.0″ does not necessarily allow firefox to use the extension. a better idea is to always back up your profile folder before playing w/ these nighty builds, which may or may not be compatible w/ installed extensions. otherwise, it’s just a roll of the dice.

  8. Jesse Ruderman Says:

    If you’ve been using the extension in nightlies from shortly before the version number change, you can be pretty sure they still work in nightlies shortly after the version number change.
