Updated the WebExtensions version of the Viewer to display colour histograms of the RGB (red/green/blue) and HSL (hue/saturation/luminosity) channels for the image; also, added an extension icon for the Add-ons Manager, to demonstrate my complete lack of artistic ability and sense of aesthetics.

Version 3.4 164.1 KiB Works with Firefox for Android 48.0 and later, Firefox 48.0 and later

Fixed a bug in which on rare occasions the ITPC Core XML was being truncated.

Updated the Viewer to allow for the handling of local files (file: protocol); also, the popup window now starts up with a larger height and the window dimensions are saved and restored across sessions. Finally, I disabled the use of "incognito" mode, as it was possibly causing a problem when cookies are needed for the image retrieval.

Version 3.0 160.3 KiB Works with Firefox for Android 48.0 and later, Firefox 48.0 and later

Added the ability to launch Google™ Earth if GPS information is included in the EXIF data, with the option of saving the information to a KML file.

Modified the Viewer to handle the change in behaviour in the beta versions of FF 3.0 in which long strings without breaking spaces were causing the width of the output area to increase indefinitely, rather than leaving the width as is and displaying a scroll bar; also fixed a problem with expanding and collapsing the IPTC Core lists caused by a change in the tagnames for HTML elements. Verified that everything still works in beta 4.
