Macromedia News Firefox Extension Updated

I have uploaded a new version of the Macromedia News Firefox extension. This version adds support for Firefox 1.5.

Sorry it took so long.

You can find more information, as well as install the extension from here.

Ill probably do another build in the coming weeks to update the name and branding.

If you run into any issues, just post them in the comments.

    >I keep getting new blinkies for entries from like Oct. 05 – what the dilly-o?Yeah. That is because they are in the feed. Looks like something messed up with the original feed and MXNA got confused.mike chambersmesh@adobe.com

    Mike, the last update (v0.9.85) works well with Firefox 1.5 but it nevers receives news update under Firefox 1.0.7 even if I force the update.

    Mike,The update works just as it did prior to the FF 1.5 update. There is one thing that continues to occur even with the new version. The flashing icon works just fine as does the bolded new items. However, when there are more than one new item; as soon as I select the first unread item; all unread items go “unbold” (if there is such a word) and the icon stops flashing.Is this something that could be addressed in the next update? It would be nice if each item went upbold as it was selected and that the icon would continue to flash until all items had been opened. If some users objected to this behavior; meybe there could be a choice at the bottom of the list that worked some like some blog and news reader applications that allows the user to “mark all as read”. 🙂

    Great Job, Mike!!Just to report, it’s working fine in Windows XP 64Bit Edition running the 32Bit Firefox and Thunderbird (not that it should be a surprise, but, after installing Coldfusion on IIS, it might be good to state both work well -the latter thanks to Ben Forta’s instructions on his web-… I hope soon I’ll be able to say the same about Acrobat 7.0 in this 64Bit environment…)Thanks a bunch 😉
