New version released Assegnate 5 su 5 stelle

Just for fun I've updated and re-released this extension. I've fixed some bugs and updated it to handle all of the current BOINC projects. You can find it at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/boinc-stats-2/.

I love this little add on, and was very disappointed it couldn't be installed in FireFox beyoned 3.x.

Thanks go to the developers of this little gadget!

Here is how (a little hack) to make this work with FF 4+ (I'm using it with version 6 now!)

You need to re-enable the status bar - here is a project that does this:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/status-4-evar/

Download the latest version of the .XPI (boincstats_0.6.3.xpi) from
http://boincstats.mozdev.org/installation.html

rename the .XPI and add a .ZIP extension
Open the .ZIP file and extract the install.rdf
open the install.rdf file with notepad (or other text editor)
Locate the <em:maxVersion> tag and change the value to something higher than the FF version you are using e.g.:
<em:maxVersion>10.0</em:maxVersion>
Save the file.
Add (and replace) the install.rdf file with the new (edited) version in the archive (your renamed XPI.zip file)
rename the XPI file (remove the .ZIP extension)
Drag and drop the updated XPI onto firefox (then choose to install it)

Pros:

Mozilla.org keeps saying this is "not available for 3.6.16."

I have 3.6.16.

I followed Stileth's link in the Reviews for 3.5. Installed and it works fine on my 3.6.16, displaying my Recent Avg Credit for MalariaControl in my Status Bar. Who could ask for anything more?

Cons:

Need to open Tools > Add-Ons > Boinc Stats to change the Options. No clicking on the status bar will open the options menu. However clicking will open your Boinc Account page.

Options asks for you to enter your Account Number to connect the BoincStats add-on to your Boinc account. That doesn't work. What you need to enter is your User ID, not the account number, so the BoincStats GUI needs to be corrected.

Updates wanted! Assegnate 5 su 5 stelle

Why can't Stileth's version be available directly? It would be nice to see some improvement and more options!

This is a great, simple little addon that works well for many Boinc project. Since Firefox is no longer going to support Firefox 2 it would be nice to get an update that will support version 3. I couldn't get it to list as compatible for version 3.

I'd hate to lose my at a glance stats since we're being forced to upgrade to Firefox 3. Maybe you'll consider a refresh of this?

OK, I've updated the installer to work with version 3.0.x, so feel free to grab it.
