These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 1.2.2.1-signed 17.2 kB Works with Firefox 36.0 and later

This is a patch release

· Fixes an issue with the icons in the folder tree - with the advent of ff37, moz-icon:file// seems to have some weird problems (see: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2928599) so I'm now using the profile folder's icon in place of the individual folder's icon.

This may cause the more specialised folders to have the generic folder icon rather than their custom icon.

Version 1.2.1.1-signed 17.0 kB Works with Firefox 36.0 and later

This is a compatibility release

· Addresses the fact that, starting with FF36, all interfaces derived from nsIBoxObject no longer exist.

Version 1.2.0.1-signed 17.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

This release adds support for non-Windows users.

· Various styling changes that make things more cross-platform friendly.
· Adds support for unix style file systems.

The way the unix file system works is sufficiently different that it is impractical to construct the tree view that the Windows version uses, instead, non-Windows users get the standard file-picker dialog.

Version 1.1.4.1-signed 16.0 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

This is a patch release

· Fixes an issue with the icon sizing on the Navigation Toolbar

Version 1.1.3.1-signed 16.0 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

Change to the way the pictures are rendered, replacing the main picture's <image> element with an <html:canvas> element.

This should speed up image transitions and remove any hint of image.onload's tendency to flicker on highly compressed or interlaced images.

Version 1.1.2.1-signed 15.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

This is a patch release.

· Replaces the use of the soon to be unsupported: -moz-border-radius CSS property with: border-radius.

Version 1.1.1.1-signed 15.4 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

With the advent of Firefox 9, once again, there appears to be problems with identifying (and ignoring) system files like pagefile.sys - this update includes yet more mitigation for this reoccurring issue.

Some new functionality has been added.

· The ability to advance the pictures automatically according to a chosen time delay.

· The ability to loop the slideshow instead of stopping at the end or start of the series of pictures..

· Some updates to the help text and tool tips.

Version 1.0.7.1-signed 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

Since the release of Firefox 8.0 I am seeing nasty flickers when loading larger pictures and blurring when loading pictures with interlacing.

This update mitigates these problems.

Version 1.0.6.1-signed 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

A very minor tweak to better handle Windows system files (like pagefile.sys as reported by flaney). The existence of these types of file should now consistently not interfere with the population of a particular folder's contents.

Version 1.0.5.1-signed 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

I originally developed this under FF3.6 and it always performed fine. Until recently I was still routinely using FF3.6 but it appears that with the advent of FF4/5/6 it exhibits a Memory Leak - perhaps as reported by hakkach7.

This update mitigates the memory problem that I have observed under later versions of Firefox and users should not see it accumulating more and more memory usage with each picture viewed.

Version 1.0.4.1-signed 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

No substantive changes just some coding changes, mainly to address the warnings reported by the Add-on Validator.

· Removed contentaccessible=yes as unnecessary; recommended by amo-editors during the original full review.

· Restructured javascript to avoid the 'JavaScript namespace pollution' warnings reported by the Add-on Validator.

· Added Event Handlers to avoid the 'on* attributes being set using setAttribute' warnings reported by the Add-on Validator.

The Add-on Validator now shows no errors and no warnings.

Version 1.0.3.1-signed 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 3.6 and later

The Mozilla preliminary review reports that the add-on does not work under FF2. This is my fault as I have no way of testing it under FF2 and rather assumed a backwards compatibility that clearly doesn't exist. Accordingly I have updated the add-on to indicate that it works with FF 3.6 - 4.0.*; it may in fact work with earlier versions of FF3 but I have no way of testing that fact.

Version 1.0.2.1-signed 13.3 kB Works with Firefox 2.0 and later

Updated to run under FF4

· Added 'exists' test in addition to 'isSpecial' as FF4 seems to handle some system files differently to FF3.6
· Abandoned groupbox as FF4 renders them differently to FF3.6 and for the life of me I couldn't CSS my way out of the differences. Instead the groupbox's are replaced with plain 'ol box's but styled to look like the original groupbox's.
