Fixes for regressions:

  • Fixed (?): 305032 - Edit commands not available to subsequent instances on startup.

    hm. extensions stopped working after last update (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050906 Firefox/1.4)
    i have changed extensions.lastAppVersion to 1.0+, but still no result

  2. costin Says:

    workaround: i have manually created app.extensions.version with 1.0+ (as in the trunk instructions from here: http://www.squarefree.com/burningedge/2005/08/23/2005-08-23-trunk-builds/ ) then manually re-enabled extensions

  3. testboy Says:

    another workaround: http://users.blueprintit.co.uk/~dave/web/firefox/buildid/nightly.html
    get this extension. reenable the disabled extensions via mouseclick in the extension manager.

    costin, as your useragent says, Firefox’s version is now 1.4, not 1.0+.
