Reset Kiosk 0.6.1

  09/06/14 02:14, by Esa, Categories: Hardware

Mozilla changed it's policy to not giving fully reviewed status to extensions that default using fullscreen. This caused current and all previous reset kiosk versions to lose the status they already had and drop to preliminary reviewed.

0.6.1 version doesn't bring anything new other than change the default settings when you first install it. If you have used the extension before your settings are untouched.

The exact message I got from mozilla staff was

I'm downgrading this add-on to preliminarily approved, since our current policy is to not give full review to Kiosk add-ons. The add-on should not enter kiosk mode by default and provide an intuitive way to exit kiosk mode in order to be fully reviewed.

I have no idea how to provide more intuitive way to exit fullscreen than what is in place in firefox by default (the dialog asking for permission the first time, giving option not to ask again and telling how to exit). I hope this defaut setting change is enough, but let's see how this 0.6.1 full review process goes.

Another new version so soon after the previous.

- Utilizes Fullscreen API introduced in FF 10 to listen for transitions and adds option to enter back to fullscreen state whenever the browser leaves fullscreen.
- Adds option to enter fullscreen without navigation bar / tab bar (real presentation mode fullscreen) in FF 10+
- Adds option to prevent context menu from popping up on right mouse click, this works on all ff's.

Seems it was a needed service, so it was moved to a separate domain.

Keräilyhakukone - combined search for finnish collectible coin selling sites

  11/10/13 17:02, by Esa, Categories: Hardware

It's been a while since I did anything that is actually worth publishing. I recently needed to find a few collectible coins and it was a pain in the *** to search all separate sites, let the images etc load, make notes to compare different sites etc. I thought it would be way faster to find the best prices for what I was looking for if I just made a little tool for it.

So this weekend project is now published:

It's all in finnish, but so are the webshops it searches from. The actual 'how to use the site' doesn't need much explaining (you've seen google right?). It's been tested of recent Safari, Chrome and Firefox on OSX Mavericks. Gotta get my hands on some windows machine to test recent IE as well . I don't have any plans on supporting ancient browsers (seriously, to those IE7 user agents - UPGRADE!).

Reset Kiosk 0.4

Updated reset kiosk plugin to support Firefox 6.0.

It's being in queue for approval in the

Edit 5.10.2011: It took Mozilla 8 weeks to review the version and now there is already Firefox 7. ARGH! The manifest in the plugin says this is compatible only up to 6.0. But I marked this release compatible with up to Firefox 10.0a1 in so you should be able to install it anyway. . .
