Opie 5.0.1 Not See Pref For Add-on

Postby FatFreddy44 » Thu Aug 14, 2014 12:10 pm

Auto Shutdown NG 0.9.16
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-shutdown-ng/?src=api

This add-on does have user set preferences, but Opie does not see them
I don't know if this means anything, but when installed, Auto Shutdown
has nothing set at installation. The user must set them after installing.

FEBE and OPIE are great programs. Keep up the great work.

The add-on may have user-set preferences, but the developer did not create a file that stores the list of those preferences. Older versions of OPIE (prior to 5.0) had the ability for a user to define the preference root for any extension OPIE could not find preferences for. While this worked, it required the user to be rather technically minded in tracking down the preference roots. For this reason, CLEO 5.0 now only recognizes those extensions that follow Mozilla's recommended guidelines for preferences. While the new method is simpler, more user-friendly and less error-prone, it will miss some extension's preferences.

Perhaps in the next major OPIE release, I will add back that ability so more advanced users can get the full benefit.
