A few notes:
- Once again: Not all Flash content can be maximized, nor will my parser make sense of all the obscure ways in which Flash content can be embedded in a HTML document.
- There is now limited support for the OBJECT element. However, most current Flash games are still embedded (also) using the older, non-standard EMBED element. For this reason, along with a wish to keep CPU usage during page-load to a minimum, FGM will currently only look for OBJECT elements if no EMBED elements are found on the page (ie. on a page where some of the Flash content has been embedded using the EMBED element and some using the OBJECT element, only the former will be detected). Also, the OBJECT parser has not been tested quite as thoroughly as the EMBED parser. This, in conjunction with the fact that the OBJECT element has a more complex syntax than the EMBED element, may cause the OBJECT parser to fail detecting Flash content in some cases.
- Feedback about Platform and Version compatibility, aside from my own combination (Windows with the latest Firefox release) will be much appreciated, as will any bug-reports (but please, NOT about issues with specific games or sites, due to reasons already explained). When providing feedback, please use my e-mail address (privacy.lover[at]gmail.com) rather than submitting a review.
- Like most other Firefox extensions, FGM is not "signed", which means that you will get a warning dialog, indicating that the "author" of this extension is "unknown", when you install it. The reason for this is quite simple, and for once it has nothing to do with my attempts at remaining anonymous: The process involved in "signing" an extension is not only VERY complex, involving several obscure command-line tools and requiring a dizzying number of steps to carry out (though an extension is available that will simplify this a lot), but in addition you need to pay quite a hefty sum (which is typically recurring on a yearly basis), to obtain (and maintain) the "certificate" necessary for this purpose. Until Mozilla (or some other organization) decides to either A) Allow "self-signed" certificates (or some other freely available kind of certificates) to be used, or B) Provide some kind of free certificate-creation (or extension-signing) service, it is very unlikely that FGM will ever be "signed" correctly.
