Hi Chuck,

I'm running FF beta 14, and when I tried to install paste email plus 3.5 beta2 I got an error message.
I saw the latest release was over a year ago, is this extention still being developed?
I love this add on so I hope it is still alive :)

greetz..

Yes, it is still actively being developed. I guess I should take it out of beta (you're right ... it's been over a year) and submit a stable release to AMO.

What errors are you getting with PEP and Fx 14beta?

Hi, that is great to hear :)

The options itself are visible in the context menu, but when I try to paste something nothing happens.
When I click on 'options' I get the following error.

XML-parsefout: ongedefinieerde entiteit
Locatie: chrome://pasteemailplus/content/pasteemailplusOptions.xul
Regelnummer 261, kolom 5: <tab id="pepExportTabID" label="&pasteemailplus.options.export.caption;"/>

It would appear that the PEP locale (language file) you are using is incomplete. From the error message you posted, it looks like you are using "de" (German). Is this correct?

If you feel comfortable editing the PEP extension file, I can show you which line you need to remove to get it working. You would need a program like 7-zip that can edit .zip files (assuming you are on a Windows platform).

In the meantime, I will submit PEP for translation. Unfortunately, it can take several weeks to get all the translations done.

Hi,

Actualy i'm using the dutch translation.

Yes I can try editing the extention file, is it the line in the file mentioned in the error message that need to be removed?


<tab id="pepExportTabID" label="&pasteemailplus.options.export.caption;"/> in pasteemailplusOptions.xul?

The line you need to remove is in the file chrome.manifest contained in the extension file pasteemailplus-3.5beta2.xpi (Right-click and Save Link As...).

Code: Select all
locale   pasteemailplus   nl chrome/locale/nl/
This is around line 17. "nl" is the code for Dutch.

The .xpi file is just a renamed .zip file. If you use 7-zip, you can edit the file directly without renaming or un-zipping it first.

Thanks for the reminder. To be honest, though, my time is limited. What with the school teaching year started, my new Firefox extension (JavaScript Object Examiner) just releasing and two or three other projects in the works, my days are pretty full. I do intend to look into the problem and I will put in on my PEP todo list.

Hi Chuck

Don't know how, but Microsoft clearly managed to break other ones work.
Most other inlog sites still work so the problem isn't that big yet.

thanks
