Known bug / easy workaround Firefox 3.6.* MacOS X only Rated 4 out of 5 stars

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!

Always loved this until I installed firefox 3.6 The OK button does nothing and the screen sits there. No icon is transferred to the desktop. Re installed twice with no success.

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.

Even if URL and NAME are input, Desktop of CreateShortcuts is selected, and OK is clicked, the icon is not completed though prism was installed.

BUG! minimize to tray? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

if i select "display in the notification area" then when i launch on of my pages, it comes up with a plain white page, if i decide to add the browser controls to the app, then when the blank white page comes up i can click "home" and it will take me to where the app is supposed to.... and i can't figure out for the life of me how the hell to minimize this to the tray...

HOW DO YOU MINIMIZE TO TRAY?!!?!?!?:

Turns out I was using an out-dated Firefox version before.
This works well now and if very handy.

Was good, but broken now Rated 3 out of 5 stars

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.

This was working great until I installed 1.0b3. I'm on 32 bit Windows XP using FF 3.5.7. None of the window controls work anymore so I can't minimize the app. It used to minimize into the system tray. Please patch this or let me know how to install an older version of the extension.

I couldn't force this to open in a firefox window as a tab. It wouldn't close when I clicked the red X and I also couldn't modify the options I chose for it when I created the tab.

Plus there was the annoying fact that it simply ignored all of my extensions. It should respect my choices like Ad Block Plus and Auto-Hide Statusbar. I sincerely hope it'll also respect Jetpacks by the time it comes out of Beta.

Another vote for 3.6 compatibility!

I would assume people from Mozilla use this extension and would have an update for it already!
