CLEO: Control installation order

Postby VLM » Wed Aug 24, 2016 5:26 am

Chuck, is it possible to control the installation order when installing extensions from a CLEO Pack?

Thanks!

No, not really. The extensions contained in a cleopack are submitted to Fx for installation in the order they appear within the cleopack. But since Fx installs extensions asynchronously, there is no guarantee in which order they will finish installing.

Thanks. Is the same true for restoration of preferences using OPIE?

Yes. Nearly every function in XPCOM is asynchronous. Mozilla frowns upon coding things synchronously and is grounds for rejecting an addon.
