help! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Sorry, but there is no support section and I can't find a way to contact the developer anywhere. I tried the experimental 3.7 release for Firefox 3.0.12 on Mac 10.5.7 but the install seems to fail. Any advice?

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

being a long-time emacs user, this is the most valuable firefox addon of all.

(NOTE - i'm having some problems with 3.6 version (^G doesn't deactivate selection, ^S activates the save dialog in linux, but not windows), so for now i'm reverting to firemacs 3.5, and it works fine. i've notifed the developer separately, mention the problem here in case others need the workaround.)

I can't find your email contact so the bug report goes here. Firemacs 3.5 is incompatible with Firefox 3.5; hope to see an update soon, it's a fabulous addon!

For GranParadiso in linux users. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for wonderfull extention.
But, MAYBE firemacs3.4 is not compatible with linux.
Some keybindings is not work in view.(It works in textbox.)

I tested firemacs3.2 is work in linux.
But, /chrome/content/init.js is not compatible with GranParadiso(not a firefox branded one)
This is solution for make it work.

1. Check your ua, alert(navigator.userAgent) in URL bar.
2. It returns like "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008100314 GranParadiso/3.0.3"
3. Do these in bash. (if your returns other UA change it in regexp.)
$ wget https://addons.mozilla.org/ja/firefox/downloads/file/28377/firemacs-3.2-fx.xpi
$ mkdir firemacs-3.2 && cd firemacs-3.2
$ unzip ../firemacs-3.2-fx.xpi
$ cd chrome && jar -xvf firemacs.jar && cd content
$ perl -pi -e 's/Firefox\/3/Firefox\/3|GranParadiso\/3/g' init.js
$ cd ../ && jar -cvf firemacs.jar content skin
$ cd ../ && zip firemacs-3.2-fx.xpi chrome/firemacs.jar chrome.manifest install.rdf
4. Drag and Drop firemacs-3.2-fx.xpi to Add-on panel.

Thanks and sorry for poor english.

Great addon for emacs users! Thank you very much, Kazu.

I found a little but bothersome issue in the find dialog: When the search string has matches I can close the find dialog by pressing C-g, but with no matches C-g is broken.

I would expect C-g to always close the find dialog.

Firemacs best browsing improvement since Mosaic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would say that five stars is not enough.
Firemacs is the single most important feature that has increased
my browsing experience significantly since Mosaic.

If it wouldn't be for Firemacs I wouldn't be using Firefox 3 now. When I installed Firefox 3 and found that my gtk key settings were ignored my only choice would be to abandond Firefox3. But thanks to Firemacs I can continue to use Firefox and now Firefox start becoming real frindly.

On the other hand, setting basic keys, like editing keys and such should be done centrally per user, not per application.

In all GUIs you should be able to set key preferences like emacs, vi or the brain dead windows keys. In GTK this is possible since long time and also in KDE, but there are applications that ignores them (which firefox3 did...).

This type of add on like Firemacs should be available in for all types of applications, to fine tune user preferences, but the fundamental problem should be dealt with centrally.

nice! one problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this add-on a lot. I used to use gconf on linux to accomplish this, but that no longer seems to work with ff3, so firemacs was just what I needed.

One problem I've had is that I don't like the fact that it uses the X-Windows cut and paste buffer to store the contents of the emacs kill buffer. This is different from what I was used to when I used gconf, and I had built up a lot of habits that no longer worked. For instance, if I wanted to go to a web address that was on my clipboard, I used to click in the url bar, do control-A control-K, and then click on the middle mouse button to paste the new address in. Now that no longer works, because the control-K overwrites the X-windows cut and paste buffer. It would be nice if there could be a user preference setting to change this behavior.

I also didn't like the default keybindings, because too many of them overrode the standard Firefox ones (e.g., control-T). However, it was no big deal to get rid of all the ones I didn't want.

nice idea, but sometimes fails Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is a nice extension, although it fails to override a lot of shortcuts (ej, C-s ) and some other add-ons can have shortcuts that override the settings in firemacs (ej.M-n when google notebok is installed).

v 3.3 not working on ff3 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

i would love to have emacs keybindings supported, but this version

keybindings continued to be as their default behavior....

3.3 Doesn't Work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Previous versions worked perfectly, but 3.3 doesn't work at all. And since I can't find a way to contact the author directly, here I am....

Doesn't Work

Firefox 3.3 supports Firefox and Iceweasel only.
I have added code to support BonEcho and Minefield to
the CVS tree. http://www.mew.org/~kazu/proj/firemacs/

If you are using another kind of Firefox, please tell me what
kind of string is displayed if you type the following in the URL bar:
javascript:alert(navigator.userAgent)
