FECT apparently random behaviours with one profile

Postby grahamperrin » Sat May 12, 2018 7:21 am

Original subject line:

FECT Start Session: menu of extensions

With a 'lightweight' profile (relatively few extensions), I do get the menu. For example:

2018-05-12 15.25 OK.png
The menu of extensions.


With a heavily-laden profile (many extensions), the menu will not populate:

2018-05-12 15.17.24 FECT Start Session.png
No menu …


Please, any suggestions?

I assume that there's a conflict with FECT itself, and I'll happily share a list of enabled extensions but first, I thought I'd ask; maybe you've encountered this with Firefox.

(Here: Waterfox 56.1.0.89 on FreeBSD-CURRENT.)

TIA

No, I don't believe I've ever tested it on any platform besides Fx, and It's always worked for me. The profile I usually test with has about 60 or so extensions installed and I've never had the issue you are having with Waterfox.

Have you checked the error console for any FECT related errors?

Hmm. The symptoms today (with just one tab open, before I try to proceed) are different.

I could select an extension, then there appeared the two columns of extensions (enabled | disabled) but clicking 'Continue' had no effect.

Eventually I reset the database, now I can select an extension but the two columns are empty. I'll restart Waterfox and retry …

Looks like you found the problem! It seems the apostrophe in the extension name is causing the SQLite record not to be written/read. I tried installing "You're Not So Special" in Fx and FECT failed. It didn't matter whether it was enabled or disabled, just merely having it installed caused FECT to crash.

Hi, just wondering whether you plan to update the extension.

Not for me, but I'm recommending use of the extension in some tech support cases. One less thing for end users to think about when they're troubleshooting.

No pressure, just wondering. Thanks again for … almost the most useful extension I have ever found. (Second only to Tab Groups.)

Cheers!

Eventually, yes. Right now I'm in the process of updating my extension and porting it to Quantum. Also, needs to be written for Chrome and need to be ported to Quantum.

Since FECT is a 'legacy'* extension written in XUL/XPCOM, support for the APIs will eventually wane and I'm not really sure how long I can provide updates.

* I hate that word 'legacy'. To me it implies something is outdated, no longer useful, or just not needed anymore.
