Version 1.5.5 21.5 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 4.0b6

Release Notes for 1.5.5
* Compatibility with Firefox 4 (numerous fixes)
* Added: Support for use with History items in the new 'Firefox' button. (but this gets broken again in newer prerelease builds of Firefox)
* Added: Boox option now supports Boox 2.6. (Option still refers to Boox 2.0 and 2.5, but it now also works with 2.6)
* Fixed: Ctrl-click option does not properly support version 0.6.0.8 of Toolbar Buttons 'Bookmarks Menu Button'.
* Fixed: (Bug in 1.5.4 used with Firefox versions 3.6 and prior) 'Redisplay menu after Properties Dialog closes' Option does not work when used with an item in the Bookmarks Toolbar chevron.
* Added locale: sr
Important: This is known incompatible with Firefox 4.0b7.

Note: Some other extensions that Stay-Open Menu has previously added support for, do not (as of date of this release) work properly with Firefox 4 (even without Stay-Open Menu installed) and thus could not be tested to determine whether Stay-Open Menu still properly supports them. Also note that Firefox 4 includes a "Bookmarks Menu Button" by default (preventing the necessity of support for those added by other extensions).

Version 1.5.4 18.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a4pre

* New: Option to redisplay the menu after using 'right-click > Properties' on a bookmark to view/edit it's properties. Enable via Tools > Add-ons > Extensions Tab > Stay-Open Menu > Options.
* New: Works with Toolbar Buttons "Toolbar Bookmark Menu"
* New: Works with "Bookmarks Menu Tool Button"
* New: Option to remove 'Subscribe to This Page' items from the Bookmarks Menu. (Workaround for bug when used with Firefox versions prior to 3.7.) With this item removed, pages can still be subscribed to, by clicking the orange RSS icon in the address bar. (Windows/Linux only; Mac users will need to wait for Firefox 3.7 where bug no longer occurs.)
* Added: Option for enabling/disabling Stay-Open Menu's use with Smart Location Bar (only new functionality is ability to disable).
* Added: Locales fr, nl, pt-BR, ru-RU, zh-CN (and locale-related fixes)
* Fixed (bug in 1.5.3): When used with Windows XP's default Blue scheme (and possibly others), 'List All Tabs' widget's selected item's text becomes illegible when hovered. Firefox default styling is restored in 1.5.4. If you wish to continue using the styling implemented by 1.5.3, go to Tools > Add-ons > Extensions Tab > Stay-Open Menu > Options and enable (check): Avoid resizing 'List All Tabs' dropdown.
* Known Issue: Stay-Open Menu's Ctrl-click option does not work properly with version 0.6.0.8 of Toolbar Buttons 'Bookmarks Menu Button'. (Middle-click does work correctly.)

Version 1.5.3 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.7a1pre

* New feature: 'All tabs' Menu stays open when middle-clicking items. (Currently selected tab's item in the menu changed to italic and blue, rather than the default (usually bold black) to avoid resizing the menu's width while the menu is open.)
* Known Issue: The above color change has now been confirmed to make the text very difficult to read if running on Windows XP's default Blue color scheme. Those affected should see homepage for workaround or wait for 1.5.4.
* Fixed: When Boox-related option is enabled, right-clicking 'Mark as read' or 'Open all unread' should not activate those actions.
* Fixed: 'Smart Location Bar' bug (when using shift-middleclick, pressing [Esc] clears the location bar of the current tab's URL)
* Fixed: Incorrect behavior on Smart Location Bar (aka awesomebar) when using with [Shift]. Stay-Open Menu now follows Firefox's default foreground/background behavior when opening new tabs from 'Smart Location Bar' entries. (Whether they open in foreground or background depends upon the 'about:config' setting browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground, and behavior reversed with the Shift key.)
* Added option to keep menu open for multiple selections on the 'Permissions' subitem added by Tab Mix Plus (TMP) to the tab contextmenu (only applicable if TMP is installed and its 'Permissions' option is enabled) Usage: Enable via Tools > Add-ons > Stay-Open Menu > Options, then left-click TMP's permissions items.
* Now compatible with 'Hide Caption' extension
* General code improvements
