    & looking forward to more rapid releases

  2. Hi great job, but icons are a bit big
    (take a lot of space, maybe you guys can fix that)
    Would love to see more features
    (enable/disable as user per se)

    & please update the release schedule to faster rapid release please

    Firefox is going to have more cosmetic changes so looking forward to QJ have the compatibility updates more

  4. First of all thank you for making this awesome extension! I've been using it for years not and I can not imagine Firefox without it!

    the buttons on the extensions bar are now slightly bigger, they are making extension bar larger and due to to this there is less space for viewing sites especially on wide screen netbooks.
    I know this is not a big problem because it is only few pixels, but can there be a choice to use small or lager icons?

    1. Same here, I love this extension but the new buttons...err, forgive me, but I really hate the size and the colouring of it now and have even some difficulties to identify them quickly.

      Before they changed colouring and size it was totally clear, if something was deactivated or not because of the sweet red and blue buttons. Now they take to much of the lower bar and hard to the differences between on & off or functions.

      Even if you won't change their size, could you please use the same clouring as it was before? Thanks a lot in advance!

  5. Hey, a thought for another feature would be the ability to turn off the PDF.js?

    Also
    all it's missing is keyboard shortcuts.

    Ctrl+Alt+l for Image
    Ctrl+Alt+F for Flash
    etc

    thanks for making this great addon

  6. Any chance that you can add support for the IcedTea-Web Plugin [1]? It's a Free Software plugin that runs Java applets. It's the default plugin in a large number of Linux distributions.

    Simply changing the regex for detecting Java is sufficient:
    case this.qj_J:
    return /((^| )java.*(platform|plug-?in)|icedtea.*plug-?in)/i;
    break;

    Keep up the good work
    & looking forward to more rapid releases

  7. A quick question
    when cookies are enabled
    (default behavior in Firefox)
    shouldn't the icon be blue(enabled?)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ok a bunch of Anonymous comments within half an hour of each other is not the way to generate interest. There is not a team of developers working on this, just one guy and anybody that wishes to send in their revised code to include with the official version. I don't have time to work on adding features to this extension so I am not currently taking feature requests.

    I will look into the cookies icon being the wrong color. I think it's more than just being the wrong color and will have to look into it more.

    The IcedTea should be supported by the default RegEx but if it isn't you can change the RegEx in the Advanced Options (right click any icon and select "Options")

      Are you sure about that?
      "half an hour"
      is a long time !
      And this extension has a lot of users.

      Can you host the addon here?
      so that we don't have to wait foe user reviews?

  9. Version 1.7.8 has been submitted to fix the cookie issue. It isn't just the wrong color it's handling 3rd party cookies wrong, be sure to go back into the Options and configure it how you want it before updating to the latest version when it gets approved.

    As for the icon colors they should be Blue and Grey/Translucent, I got complaints that the Red was too annoying (you can't please everybody). Please submit screenshots along with your OS version and FF version if you are having problems.

      Thanks

      "As for the icon colors they should be Blue and Grey/Translucent, I got complaints that the Red was too annoying (you can't please everybody). "

      Bang-on, so just add a option for user to choose colour

  13. Version 1.7.9 has been submitted for review to fix the icons to a smaller size. All thanks goes to Dave again on this one!

    You can install un-reviewed versions on the versions page:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/quickjava/versions/

    As stated before I just don't have the time to work on this, in fact I am about to be out of town for a bit over a week so I won't even be responding to this thread.

      & as for
      "As stated before I just don't have the time to work on this"

      Just giving it a few mins a week will do
      thank you so much

      Please don't give up

    2. Don't you think it is a but rude to suggest you know the value of my time? Even at a few min a week, I do not have or wish to dedicate that tune to this project. If you want to make code changes and contribute you are welcome to do so.

    1. Forgot to add, look at link for screenshot.

    2. Not broken, just the new look/style/feel.

    3. Okay, remade it for myself.

      Now it looks along with another plugins buttons. Much better! It would be nice to allow to chose button-style for future versions.

  15. I like the look of the old buttons better.

  16. I went back to 1.7.5 as the icons are much smaller.

    ReplyDelete
  17. It definitely makes the addon bar a few pixels higher when Quickjava is enabled now, even on the preview version that is supposed to fix small icons.

    I made a quick fix for those of you who are familiar with Stylish or usercss:

    @namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
    // not required, but makes it a bit smaller
    #addon-bar {
    border-top:none !important;
    }
    .statusbarpanel-iconic-text.QuickJava_StatusIcon_Container {
    height:16px !important;
    overflow:hidden !important;
    }

  18. thx for 1.7.9 update. The old red and blue version already looked kind of blurry and outdated. Although I miss the red button a bit it's all perfect now with my FF theme.
    thx and greets!

  19. Tooltip of "P" says "Toggle Style" instead of "Toggle Proxy"

    ReplyDelete
  20. Bring back the red buttons! It's much easier to see with a quick glance what your settings are. The grey button blends in too well with the light blue.

    1. I agree. I don't see much difference between gray and what looks to me like blue-gray. Is there a way to at least get the red icon back without having to install and configure still more extensions?

      Delete
    2. Okay, I reverted to v1.75 and all is well. Nice easy to see blue and red icons.

      Delete
  21. Beside the tooltip error for the proxy icon I found the statusicon container is showing even if an icon is hidden.

    Time for a section in userChrome.css to hide the empty containers and mod the icons to my liking:

    /* fix: hide empty icon containers */
    .QuickJava_StatusIcon_Container[status="-1"]
    {display: none}

    /* modify icons */
    .quickjava-button
    {
    width: auto !important;
    min-width: 15px !important;
    padding: 1px 3px !important;
    margin: 1px 0 !important;
    font-weight: bold !important;
    color: #FFFFFF !important; /* white text always */
    background: #FF0033 !important; /* red for inactive like in v.1.7.5 */
    }
    .quickjava-button[status="1"]
    {
    color: #FFFFFF !important;
    background: #0077AA !important; /* nicer blue for active */
    /* background: #3399CC !important; / * blue for active like in v.1.7.5 */
    }


    Now I am a happy user again :)

    1. Hey that works! But the icons are still not quite right. They are a bit too tall and uneven with the other icons at the bottom.

  22. Ok guys, a lot of these complains (including going back to red buttons) fixed in 1.8.0 (pending review)
