FirefoxADM and Firefox 3
February 22, 2008
I think it is best I am completely open while I investigate this further, and to forewarn users of FirefoxADM that they may need to investigate another method of preference locking when they are considering deploying Firefox 3.
A couple of days ago, I tried Firefox 3 Beta 3 with a normal install of FirefoxADM and, to date, I have not been able to get it to work at all – either setting default preferences or locking preferences. This is obviously a bit of a blow.
I feel that this could be connected to a bug in the Firefox code, as I have been unable to get locking working in any form (such as using the traditional method).
Its very early in the process of investigating this but if anyone has tried Firefox 3 and FirefoxADM and has any other experiences, please let me know.
I’ll post any updates to this here as well as in a new blog entry.
UPDATE (29/5/08): Oh THANK GOODNESS… https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=427927 was the bug and it is fixed. FirefoxADM and Firefox 3 like each other again! Thanks to wzzrd for his comment
