It would be great if you provide updated plugin support for FireFox 2.0

I have contacted the extension author and am waiting for a reply. I hope to have a 2.0 compatible Firefox extension available in the near future.

Firefox 2.0, crash every time

Post by siliconglen »

My Firefox 2.0 installation has just prompted me to install the latest HTML Validator plug in. On doing so, Firefox crashes on startup.

DO NOT INSTALL THE PLUGIN IF YOU HAVE FIREFOX 2.0

Hmm, didn't this happen the last time?

Hi Craig,

I haven't heard of any crash problem with the latest version of the Firefox extension and CSE HTML Validator. You may want to try reinstalling CSE HTML Validator, making sure that you are doing so with an account that has administrator privileges.

Is anyone else having a crash problem with the latest versions?

Firefox extension does not validate

Post by George »

Hi Albert,
I have just installed the Firefox extension on a laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium and Firefox 2.0.0.3. The extension opens fine, I can see the source code and the message pane at the bottom but Ctrl+V nor selecting 'Validate' from the menu is validating the code. I can also not open the Validator Options (nothing happens).
Any idea?
Best regards,
George

Hi George,

I tried it on my Vista Business computer and it seems to work fine. I do have User Account Control (UAC) turned off though. I wonder if that could have something to do with it. Are you using Vista's UAC? If you have it turned on, then I suspect that could be an issue.
