10 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 2.4.1 29.3 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Restore proper UTF-8 handling. Display DOI values pages (e.g. doi:10.1000/1?noredirect) correctly after proxy update.

Version 2.4.0 29.0 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Recent developments with Firefox and the Java plugin have made a Java-based Firefox extension very difficult to maintain. This version of the CNRI Handle Extension no longer uses Java. Handle resolution is not performed using the native handle protocol, but via HTTP-to-handle proxies. Nonetheless, most users should expect significantly improved performance from the extension.

Version 2.3.7 541.3 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

This version fixes the add-on for Firefox 18.

Version 2.3.6 541.3 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Code cleanup; replace modal Java failure dialog with notification bar.

Version 2.3.5 540.7 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Version 2.3.5 fixes the extension to work with the changes in Firefox 16's interactions with Java.

Version 2.3.3 536.6 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Updated to support Firefox 5 and 6 (no substantive changes required).

Version 2.3.1 536.6 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 and later

Now compatible with Firefox 4.

Version 2.2.2 457.7 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.6.*

Version 2.2.2 adds a minor bugfix to version 2.2.1.

Version 2.2.1 of the Handle Extension introduced several configurable interface enhancements:
- hdl: and doi: URIs can be kept in the address bar (instead of the result of a redirection)
- a drop-down notification of hdl: and doi: redirects
- hdl: and doi: URIs in text can be automatically turned into links
- extra web-to-handle proxy sites can be listed for replacement with native handle resolution

On the back end, the Java integration has been adjusted so that the extension works for users of the OpenJDK/IcedTea Java plugin.

Version 2.1.9 421.9 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.6.*

Version 2.1.9 fixes an incompatibility that caused Google Street View to fail when the CNRI Handle Extension was enabled. The extension now behaves better when Java is disabled, and is compatible with the new Java plug-in setup of Firefox 3.6.

Version 2.1.8 419.8 KB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.5.*

Minor improvements especially to handling of query parameters/options; resolutions include links for handle-value types; more DOI-specific look-and-feel for doi: resolutions
