Go to http://www.google.com/notebook/download/ to download the 1.0.0.20 version. It has solved the opening notebook in a new window problem. It is said that firefox auto update hasn’t offered this latest version yet. Thanks Ramen for informing us this news in Google Groups.

Install old extension in your new firefox

leave a comment »

Persuing the latest firefox or swiftfox without it’s rich extensions (add-ons) means nothing for me at all. There are some web browsers which are faster then firefox, but I am sticky with firefox because it’s convenient extensions, which I think is firefox’s essential competence.
Most extensions don’t upgrad as fast as firefox, so you may be told that the extensions/ add-ons you want are not compatible with you new version of firefox (e.g. Firefox 3 beta 5, Firefox 3 beta 4, or swiftfox using the same core). Here’s some tricks help you install such extensions in you ff.
1. Get the xpi file
At presnet, mozilla add-ons web site would check your firefox version and tell you that ‘This add-on is for older versions of Firefox’ . In the your add-on download page, Click ‘View‘ on your firefox browser menu, ‘Page Source‘, Ctrl + F find the xpi file, you may find something like this,/en-US/firefox/downloads/file/26041/foxyproxy-2.7.2-fx.xpi‘, so your extension download address is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/file/26041/foxyproxy-2.7.2-fx.xpi
2. Install xpi file
Here‘s two instructions help you get the extensions in your ff.
If the two methods don’t help, try this add on which helps you fix the compatity problems. ( I didn’t try this cause the two method above work for me. And it seems paradoxical that you have to install an add-on to help you install add-ons.)
