I wish I can just open chm files like a pdf file directly with this extension, instead of pressing control+e to load the sidebar and manually open chm files. Still, it's a good program. Maybe you can at least integrate it with the scrapbook addon if instant viewing is not possible.

It says compatible with 3.6 and installing goes fine with FF however upon opening of the chm file, I get garbled ascii characters. Upon checking it seems that the add-on was only updated for linux and not for windows. Darn. It really is a good and useful add-on to read ebooks and the only one that exists in doing this kind of stuff. To the developer or someone kind enough please update this! It has a lot of potential!

Absolutely amazing. Spotless presentation. Significantly better than chm viewer applications I tried. And thanks to the reviewer jingguo for the comment on how to take care of the font size - "In Preferences->Content->Fonts & Colors->Advanced, set Minimum font size to the font size you want to use with chm viewer"

Please update Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Can you please add support for OpenSolaris and update compatibility to Firefox 3.6?

Thanks.

ChmZoomer gives you handy full page zoom functionality in all other browser-based applications, such as Chm files, e-Books, RSS Reader and so on. That is just like in IE7/8.
The shortcut keys are the same as IE and Firefox. Press [CTRL +] or [CTRL Mouse wheel up] to zoom in. Press [CTRL -] or [CTRL Mouse wheel down] to zoom out. Reset zoom to 100% with Ctrl-0.

Add option to adjust the whole chm book Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If there is an option to let user to adjust font size for the whole chm book, it is going to be great. A lot of users has raised this request. For now, there is a workaround. In Preferences->Content->Fonts & Colors->Advanced, set Minimum font size to the font size you want to use with chm viewer.

Adding Windows shell extention Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on as the first really good CHM reader I've found. I saw a post here about setting up a cmd scrip to launch FF from the shell and I found a second solution useing that command syntax. I edited the registry entry for chm.file to use FF.

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\chm.file\shell\open\command]
@="c:\\Program Files\\Mozilla Firefox\\firefox.exe chm:file://%1"

Don't forget to change the path to FF is you installed it in a different directory

The search functionality doesn't work for me.
(Using chm reader 0.2.3, using firefox Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.6) Gecko/20091201 Firefox/3.5.6 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) under Windows XP sp3)

"CHM Reader" could not be installed because it is not compatible with your Firefox build type (Linux_x86_64-gcc3). Please contact the author of this item about the problem.

I am using: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091109 Ubuntu/9.10 (karmic) Firefox/3.5.5

Great add on but a few things as others have pointed out:
- *Absolutely* need to be able to open chm files with firefox. Right now if you try to do so, firefox doesnt recognize the extension and tries to save the file.
- Ctrl-E shortcut doesnt work because it goes to the search bar. The choice of Ctrl-E was bad to begin with - should have been something less likely to be repeated.
- The idea of using the sidebar for the menu is IMO retarded because it's a global vs per-tab thing. It should be done with frames. Frames were *meant* for this.
