Prism Apps built using Firefox 3.6.* [ MacOS X only ] fail to launch after installing a Firefox 3.6.* upgrade. A workaround: Build any new Prism App once with the new upgrade and Prism Apps built with older Firefox 3.6.* releases will work. This is a MacOS X specific packaging issue likely to be fixed with FireFox 3.6.4 See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=542004
[ I know this is not the forum for bug reports, but there's no obvious link to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org on this page and I hate to see Prism get a bad rep on this frustrating regression. A clear link for reporting bugs with a simple gloss on the developer centric bugzilla process would help ]
It works for me without a problem, creating instances of websites that run just fine. However, it has problems with finding the right favicon, and it has really bad add-on support right now. It also likes to open external (or what it *thinks* are external) links in your default browser without a prompt -- it would be nice to have them open as a temporary Prism web-app.
This is in reply to nicktheandroid's comment. I had the same thing. When Prism updated on my computer a week or 2 ago, I was no longer able to minimize the Prism-created program windows (to the tray or anywhere else), or use the red X in the top right corner to close them. I uninstalled version 1.0b3, hit the "View All Versions" link below, and reinstalled the previous 1.0b2 version. Everything is back to normal now!
By the way, I really LOVE this addon! I now have my Google Calendar, Google Reader, Yahoo Mail and several others in separate Prism windows and it works great!
The only thing I'd change is when inside a Prism window, if I download something from email it goes straight to my desktop without allowing me to select my download location.
Oh, I'd also like to see a "Print Preview" option for inside the Prism windows.
Definitely give this addon a try - it's awesome!
I have been using this add-on in the past and did like it a lot but after upgrading to Firefox 3.6 I can not get it to work anymore.
Turns out I was using an out-dated Firefox version before.
This works well now and if very handy.
I too can no longer use the minimize, maximize, or close buttons on the window of Prism apps with the latest version. I also notice that it doesn't always pick up the icon from a website (www.gearscan.com is an example of that).
I also can't get it to minimize to the task tray anymore. Sure the tray icon is there, but clicking it does nothing now.
Finally it pumps the version number to 3.6.
download the XPI file
(https: / / addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addons/versions/6665)
rename it in "prism_for_firefox-1.0b2-fx-win.xpi.ZIP"
in the new folder, edit "install.rdf" with notepad
and replace the line 17:
zip files (eg in "newversion.zip)
rename xpi in (eg in "newversion.xpi)
open it with firefox
Just go and download the stand alone version here: http://prism.mozilla.com/started/
we need it! ff 3.6
Another vote for 3.6 compatibility!
I would assume people from Mozilla use this extension and would have an update for it already!
one more vote for ff 3.6 compatibility!
Prism is awesome! Please update for FF 3.6!
plez firefox 3.6
Please update for FF 3.6 soon!
Not compatible with Firefox 3.6
I love this addon. I use it a lot, and I hope Fx 3.6 support is coming soon..
May you update it to Firefox 3.6?
Its great, but instead of having to go to "Tools > Convert Website to Application", why not also have an options by right clicking.
To get it to work with FF3.6, you can cheat this website into thinking you use FF3.5.
Enter "about:config" in the URL-bar, find the setting "general.useragent.extra.firefox" and change it to "Firefox/3.5". Then reload this page, the button should become availabe.
Make sure to remember the original setting (in my case, Firefox/3.6b5) and reenter it after you've installed this extension.
I'm using firefox 3.5.6 on Archlinux, KDE 4.
I can create apps but they don't work. The script cannot override my own firefox config.
Can someone tell me how to do it?
However, I do like to see its so-called incompatibility with FF 3.6 being fixed because it really works.
Great idea but I'd like to see the ability to add selective add-ons to the "app". For example the iMacro, which I use to automate some SaaS steps.
