NASA Night Launch Version History

90 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 0.6.20110630 2.1 MB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 8.0a1

+ Improve support for add-on Status-4-Evar.
+ Add styling for the Web Console's Network Inspector panel.
+ Major improvement for Error Console icons and layout.
+ Major improvement for icons and layout when using add-on Console2.
+ For Fx4+, fix a layout problem with the app picker dialog that opens from the Options window's applications pane when picking 'Use other...' for an item in the list of content types. (This has no impact on the Mac or on Linux, where Firefox uses a native OS dialog instead of the XUL app picker dialog.)
+ Remove support for the Splash add-on since it doesn't exist for Fx3.6/Fx4+.
+ More for the Mac tooltip rendering error: don't suppress top margin on tooltip label if it follows a hidden tooltip label. This fixes a problem that happened when bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar have no name (e.g., by editing properties), in which case the url part of the tooltip was touching the top edge of the tooltip border.
+ Switch back to our time-tested silvery throbber instead of the bright orange one. People who want to keep the orange throbber can use this userstyle.

Version 0.6.20110608 2.1 MB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 7.0a1

New in this version:

+ Add NNL styling for about:support.
+ Provide NNL-styled toolbarbutton icons for Adblock Plus.
+ Work around the tooltip rendering error on the Mac with Fx4. (See bug 660548.)

Under the covers:

+ For Fx6 and Bug 577721 - allow repositioning of the web console: above, below and out into a panel/window - add styling for the web console as a detached, floating panel.
+ For Fx6, handle Bug 618913 - Implement in product notifications to set up Sync. This adds a low-impact, unobtrusive "soft notification" that appears at the bottom of the edit bookmark and save password popup panels. It's used to promote Sync now and may be used to highlight other Firefox features in the future.
+ For Fx6, handle Bug 656269 - Add link to Mozilla plugin check from Add-ons Manager. It's a button, but we style it as a .text-link since it opens a new page.
+ For Fx6, handle Bug 573176 - Implement Site-Specific Privacy Preferences. about:permissions is a new way of managing site-specific permissions.
+ For Fx6, handle Bug 595848 - Support registering custom add-on types that appear in the UI as a regular list. This bug programmatically generates IDs instead of assigning them statically in XUL. For extensions, themes, languages and plugins, the assigned ID has changed, so we change the CSS to match.
+ Update maxVersion to 7.0a1.

Version 0.6.20110508 2.1 MB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 6.*

+ Updated for compatibility with several important add-ons.
+ Bumps maxVersion to include Fx6a1 in the compatibility range.

Version 0.6.20110419 2.1 MB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 4.0.*

This version adds support for Firefox 4 on OS X and Linux. Support for Firefox 3.6 continues.

Version 0.6.20110329release 2.1 MB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 4.0.*

Updated for Firefox 4. \o/ Support for Firefox 3.6 continues.

This first release is a Windows-only version. A version with support for both Linux and Mac is almost done and is available as a beta here:

http://mcdavis.dreamhosters.com/nnlopenbeta/index.html

That link leads to a beta version with a separate add-on id that'll install along-side NNL (so it doesn't mess up automatic updates from AMO). It's mostly done, but if you see any problems please say so on the support thread at MozillaZine. As soon as it's ready it'll go to AMO (last time, it took about 8 days from submission to approval) and you'll get your NNL update automatically, like always. Thanks for your help and patience.

Version 0.6.20101009 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 3.6.*

+ For Mozilla add-on Firefox Sync v1.5, adds styling for the new set-up wizard.
+ For add-on Colorzilla, styles the new dropmarker in the statusbar.
+ For the main Options/Preferences window, makes the background image gradient work even with a resizable Options/Preferences window. (You can resize it on Linux by default, on Windows if add-on MR Tech Toolkit installed, and not at all on the Mac.)

Version 0.6.20100924 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 3.6 - 3.6.*

+ For Mozilla add-on Add-ons Collector, styles the "Extensions" toolbar button.
+ Toolbarbuttons, when checked and on the customize toolbars window, now look like all the other toolbarbuttons there (and don't look checked).
+ For Sage on Mac, uses NNL-styled icon in checked state.
+ Restores the ability to use this theme at the same time as a Persona.
+ Drops support for Firefox 3.5. Now compatible with Fx3.6 only.

Version 0.6.20100827 2.0 MB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 3.6.*

+ Temporarily marks this theme as incompatible with Personas. (You won't be able to use it at the same time as a persona.) After the next version of Mozilla's add-on Personas Plus is released, and it becomes clear what's required to work with it, this theme can be marked as Personas-compatible again.
+ This is likely to be the last release supporting Firefox 3.5. Now, on to Firefox 4!

Version 0.6.20100805 2.0 MB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 3.6.*

+ For Mozilla add-on Firefox Sync, adds styling for "Tabs From Other Computers" (about:sync-tabs) view.
+ For Mozilla add-on Test Pilot 1.0.1, restores styling for Settings on the "All Your Studies" window.
+ For OS X only, adds spacing in the statusbar so the window resizer has its own place.

Version 0.6.20100719 2.0 MB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 3.6.*

New in this version:

+ Adds support for Mozilla add-on Add-ons Collector (formerly Bandwagon) version 1.1.1.
+ Adds support for notification highlighting of new add-ons in Add-ons Manager by adding a colored strip along the side of newly-installed add-ons. Note that this applies only to installation of new add-ons, not to updates of already-installed add-ons.
+ For add-on Faviconize Tab, reduces width of browser tab while in faviconized state and centers favicon in the tab.
+ For add-on MR Tech Toolkit, adds styling to the sort button in bottom right corner of Add-ons Manager.
+ For add-on Bar Tab, makes the browser tab background fully opaque but keeps the half-opacity of tab icon, text, and close button. As delivered, Bar Tab was making it hard to tell the difference between the selected tab and the others.

Version 0.6.20100705 2.0 MB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 3.6.*

+ Adds theme-specific styling for the Mozilla add-on Test Pilot 1.0 RC1
+ Adds theme-specific styling for the Mozilla add-on Firefox Sync (formerly Weave) versions 1.3.1 and 1.4

Version 0.6.20100629 2.0 MB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 3.7a6pre

This update mainly focuses on improvements for the main browser toolbars.

You wouldn't notice many of the changes - simplifying and organizing parts of the code, getting ready for Firefox 3.7/4.0 - although it's possible it'll be faster going in and out of toolbar customization. However, there are several improvement that are visible. In general, more edge cases are handled and everything is a little more compact. Compact and better. Better, stronger, faster.

For people who are heavily customizing their toolbars down to the pixel: get the full details on what changed in the support forum at http://preview.tinyurl.com/23qmlx2 .

Version 0.6.20100529 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 3.5 - 3.7a5pre

New in this version:

+ Adds support for Firefox 3.6.4's new crashed-plugin handling and user interface. (See http://blog.mozilla.com/dolske/2010/02/10/crashed-plugin-ui/ and the release announcement for Fx3.6.4 when that becomes available.)
+ Increases width of NNL subskin background images and NNL logo header images to 3000px (the same width as Personas background images) for people running wider desktops.

Version 0.6.20100415 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a1pre

New in this version:

+ First pass at Personas support. Currently only applies to Fx3.5. More below.
+ Makes the blue glow for an installable search engine more obvious. Thanks Patrick for the bug report.
+ To match the rest of NNL toolbar buttons, changes the icon for MR Tech Toolkit's "Extensions" toolbar button to the more-standard silvery gray.
+ Changes the main toolbar icon for Bookmarks to use star symbology. This is instead of the folder/ribbon that NNL used before. Since Fx3, Firefox has used the star to mean bookmark, and now NNL uses that consistently throughout, with the exception of the simple document icon used for individual bookmarks without favicons. (Credit to Stephen Horlander and his work with Fx3.7 for inspiration for the new icon.)
+ For ChoGGi and DMCrimson, adds file chrome://global/skin/meta/stylishcustom.nasanightlaunch.txt.
+ For Mac users only, removes extra space between the nav bar and the window title bar. Before this fix, there was a thin strip with nothing in it at the top of the browser window; the strip was the Firefox menu bar, which on the Mac has nothing in it because menus are shown in the desktop menu bar. Now, the nav bar is flush against the title bar.
+ Adds visual representation for clickable grippies in splitters, such as between panes in the DOM Inspector and Stylish Custom windows. Thanks Darkry Moz for the bug report.

About Personas support:

This version includes the first attempt at Personas support in NNL. Basically, when a Persona is in use, NNL makes almost everything in the toolbar area and statusbar transparent so the Personas background image shows through. The result isn't perfect; in particular, NNL's toolbar buttons were made to show on a dark background, so right now the result depends on the particular Persona being used, and -- big surprise -- dark ones look the best. (If future versions of Personas come with their own toolbar buttons then this will become a non-issue.)

You can use Personas at the same time as a theme with Firefox 3.5. With Firefox 3.6 (and 3.7 alphas), however, you can no longer use a theme and a Persona at the same time. This is because of the way Firefox 3.6 was implemented (to protect users from themes that don't work with Personas). There are hoops you can jump through to get around this, but they're hacky hacks that involve installing older versions of the Personas add-on and that's not recommended.

To use Personas with Firefox 3.5, you need the Personas add-on (now known as Personas Plus). With Firefox 3.6 and up, Personas support is built in and no longer requires the Personas add-on. However, again, with Firefox 3.6 and up, you can't use a Persona at the same time as a theme.

Version 0.6.20100314 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a1pre

This is a reissue of the previous release (0.6.20100307) to correct a problem where the previous release was somehow marked as not compatible with Windows. Other than that, it's exactly the same.

Version 0.6.20100307 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a1pre

New in this version:

+ Fixes up styling for the Firebug toolbars for Firebug 1.5.2 on Win/Linux

Same as 0.6.20100206, but uploading a new version in hopes that it will propagate to mirror servers correctly.

Updates support for add-ons: FireFTP, Personal Menu, Firebug (Windows only) and the Personas Editor. Doesn't yet add support for using Personas at the same time as using this theme.

Version 0.6.20090428 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.5.*

+ Updated to install with Firefox 3.5 Beta 4
+ Updated for changes in ScribeFire (add-on) version 3.3.

Version 0.6.20090322 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.5b4pre

Handles changes in the ScribeFire add-on (in the ScribeFire editor toolbar).

Version 0.6.20090117 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.5b4pre

New in this version:

+ For the add-on StumbleUpon, adds styling of the SU message notification and reply bar (which appears over a page sent to you by another user after you click the incoming message icon in the SU toolbar).
+ For the add-on Tab Mix Plus, restores the appearance of the "New Tab" button in the tab strip. This was broken in the previous NNL release by rules added to handle the Fx3.1beta2 new tab button.
+ For the add-on Sxipper, adds more rules to finish restoring usability to its Training dialog.
+ Extends restart button styling to the Quick Restart add-on. (Thanks NGamer for pointing that out.)
+ Adds styling to the Fx3.1 beta2 "certificate error" page.

Under the covers:

+ Updates notifications.css to assign icons in the info, warning and critical states. Adds file icons/error-16.png (by duplicating file icons/blacklisting_favicon.png) for use in notification strips. This handles the new-for-3.0.5 about:rights notification strip, which is type="info". This is basically a late catch-up with some Fx3 changes.
+ Adds (but doesn't yet use) global/icons/sslWarning.png
+ From netError.css, remove -moz-background-clip: padding from the main #errorPageContainer (because on Fx3.1b2, was a gap between background and border at the inside of corners).
+ In menulist.css, removes border coloring from .menulist-compact. This isn't used in Firefox, but Thunderbird uses it in the Compose window.
+ A couple sekrit undercover changes for Tbird 2 compatibility.

Special thanks to Clint Bell, Jon Connelly, Dean (NinjaTek), DMCrimson, Shingoshi and everyone else for bug reports and help with testing.

Version 0.6.20081231 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b3pre

New in this version:

+ Several refinements for Firefox 3.1b2.
+ Adds support for the Sxipper add-on. The Training dialog has a white background which requires special handling on dark themes.
+ Adds support for the Mobile Barcoder add-on. If barcodes are displayed on typical black popup background, it foils image recognition on certain mobile phones. Instead, we now display with a white background and thin border. This was only an issue in context menus over a link or over selected text -- and not in the statusbar popup for this add-on.
+ For the DownThemAll add-on, removes the theme-specific "Donate Now" image from the DownThemAll Manager (since they've upgraded to a version of the image that works great with dark themes).
+ For Mac/OS X menus, now handles the case of the bare document icon (a page with no favicon) in the history menu. This is in addition to previous Mac-specific styling of the bookmarks menu. Requires an updated Stylish stylesheet http://userstyles.org/styles/11097 .
+ Under the covers, several code changes to improve maintainability.
+ For a subscribable news and annoucements feed, see http://nightlaunchnews.blogspot.com

Version 0.6.20081205 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b3pre

+ Updates maxVersion to 3.1b3pre.
+ Fixes alignment of menuitems to line up into columns. (Was most noticeable in the Bookmarks and Tools menus.)
+ For the MR Tech Toolkit add-on, replaces the icon for the "Extensions Manager" toolbarbutton with a theme-styled version.
+ In the Add-ons Manager, replaces the "Installation" icon with a theme-styled version.
+ Adds rules for the Lazarus add-on options window.
+ Removes unused "Email" main toolbar icon.

Version 0.6.20081121 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b3pre

+ Adds rules for the FEBE add-on to provide special handling for dropdown menus on the Scheduling tab.
+ Adds a few rules for the SQLite Manager add-on.
+ Adds a few rules for the eBay Companion add-on.
+ Updates night launch list to include STS-126.
+ Removes all FAMFAMFAM icons and replaces them with versions from original sources -- four tag icons, the small plug-in icon, and the password manager key icon. (But thanks for the previous use of your uber-cool icons! http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/ )

Version 0.6.20081031 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b2pre

+ For DOM Inspector, styles the two default toolbarbuttons (select and search) in the DOMi toolbar.
+ Adds styling for the Stacked Inspector add-on.
+ Updates maxversion to 3.1b2pre

Under the covers:

+ Removes launch image from tabbrowser tabpanels, making it just black. Reason: this was a second launch image shown not IN empty tabs but BEHIND them, and even then it was only visible for a brief moment. This was confusing and pointless. userContent.css code to add the launch image to empty tabs still works just the same as before.
+ Fixes vertical alignment issues with complex primary toolbarbuttons (type="menu-button", unified) when in menubar with mode=text+icons.
+ Deletes unused file global/domInspector.css
+ Deletes unused directory xpi_skins/inspector and its contents
+ Coalesces all DOM Inspector icons into xpi_skins/dominspector/toolbar.png
