Version 0.5.16 134.1 kB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 4.0b9pre, Mobile 0.1 - 1.0.*, SeaMonkey 2.0a - 2.1b2

Bug fixes:
* Updates or fresh installs of RequestPolicy on Firefox 4.0b7 would cause RequestPolicy to break due to installed extension XPIs not being extracted anymore.
* The openDialog wrapper had a latent bug triggered on Firefox 4.0b7 that (at a minimum) caused certain dialog windows from the addons manager to not open.

Extension conflicts resolved:
* RequestPolicy would block some requests where HTTPS Everywhere had changed the destination URL. Thanks to Peter, Mike, and Seth of HTTPS Everywhere for talking about, following up on, and applying the HTTPS Everywhere patch that corresponds to these RequestPolicy changes. That patch is applied in HTTPS Everywhere version 0.2.3.development.2.
