Fangs extension moving to Mozilla hosting

I discovered that my first post about the Fangs Screen reader emulator add-on was posted on November 22 in 2004. That is more than five years ago. At that time Mozilla hosting for add-ons was pretty rough and I couldn’t work out how to release updates. Alas, I hosted the add-on and updates on my own.

Yesterday I discovered that Mozilla add-on hosting has improved a lot so in the future you will find Fangs there. It should make updating a lot simpler. Version 1.06 adds compatibility with Firefox 3.6.

See Fangs screen reader emulator add-on over at Mozilla.org.

Fangs for Firefox 3 available

Sorry for the delay. Here is an updated version (1.0.4) of Fangs for Firefox 3. Your previous version may not update automatically in which case you need to uninstall it, restart Firefox, and then download/install it from the Fangs project page.

A big thank you to Stuart Middleton who showed me the necessary steps to get rid of the annoying security warning that Firefox 3 displays for unsigned extensions.

Status on Fangs update for Firefox 1.5: Real Soon Now

An update to make Fangs compatible with Firefox 1.5 is in the works. It almost works, but Firefox 1.5 broke the default setting for how developers can access the document object in javascript. I will try to update it as soon as possible. Thank you for all the encouraging emails.
