FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: FarrUninstall plugin - v1.02
« on: July 10, 2008, 08:15 AM »
Uninstalling Java does not work. In windows' "Software" dialog there is are two buttons (in german: "Ă„ndern" and "Entfernen" which means "Setup/Change" and "Remove"); unfortunately FarrUninstall calls the wrong one, so there is no way to remove Java this way.

Find And Run Robot / Re: some suggestions about FARR

Regarding the search input for the task bar: I think this should only implemented as an additional application that communicates with FARR, not a feature of FARR itself.

@Mouser: First, let them calm down ;)
In my opinion this is really a nice invention and it may render some usages/abuses of htmlview obsolete.

Version 1.08.01 is installed and "Search FireFox Bookmarks", "Include Folder Path in Titles", "Force Rescan Every Hour" are enabled, the other ones are disabled.

By the way: It's not clear whether to enter a directory or a file in "Custom bookmark file locations".

I tried both, adding the bookmarks.html and only the folder to that list of "Custom bookmark file locations" but it didn't change anything.

I use Firefox 3 but I don't think that's the reason (I use the bookmarks.html).
It must be something with the new version.

Since 2.14.01 FarrFox doesn't work for me.
No results at all.

It would be nice if the CTRL+ALT+ENTER hotkey would cause even urls normally displayed with htmlviewurl to be opened in browser.

I have an alias group which shows 2 entries like  "htmlviewurl URL($$1)" and 3 entries like "URL($$1)".
Hitting the "launch all" hotkey should result in opening all 5 entries in the browser, OR opening 3 URLs in the browser and 2 in new tabs in FARR.

I think this is very closely related to the requested greasemonkey-like addon.
In my opinion the user-specified CSS file should be loaded after the ones specified in the document. You could also add the possibility to add user made Javascript files.
There should be per-site and global settings for each.

mouser: If you implement this, please write a plugin (do not add it to the core functionalities; of course APIs may be added for this, if not already there)

@Lashiec: No, it is version 2.12.03.

When using the skin slenderFARR.skn the inactive menu entries are invisible. Perhaps some colors should be changed :)
You can see the effect on the appended screenshots.

Find And Run Robot / [Bug report] Wrong order in file browser
« on: June 25, 2008, 12:41 PM »
Unfortunately there seems to be a problem with folder sorting.
The screenshot should explain the problem; I would expect the folders to be sorted by alphabet.

I noticed that most of the icons are not displayed correctly because some of them have transparent areas.
The screenshots explain the problem.

New version is up (2.12.03)

Mouser, please update the forum thread Latest FARR <Rel. #> Release - <Date> when releasing new versions :-\

I didn't notice that there were any new releases since 2.10.01 until the moment I read your message here!
(Note that I don't blame you for that, it's just a suggestion to improve the communication between you and the community)

P.S.: Ok, maybe it's my fault... didn't open DCU for a while  :-[
Nevertheless: Wow, good work!

Method 1 with "Always launch shortcuts directly instead of resolving links" does not work on start menu entries but on all other files it does.
All other (method,direct_launch_on_off) combinations do their work on all files (Win XP SP2)

Find And Run Robot / Re: Internationalization issues
« on: June 25, 2008, 11:27 AM »
Mouser, LOL!
Look at the URL :D

You can simply drag and drop the items in the list to change the order.

There is a default bookmarks.html (showing the initial bookmarks) in the profile directory. The entries of this file are then shown in FarrFox.
When exporting my bookmarks to this file FarrFox works perfectly. So, everytime I want FarrFox to have my current bookmarks I first have to export them and then wait one hour or use "ff `".

Will this plugin be updated to support Firefox 3 such that it can read the places.sqlite?
If this is too complicated, there is perhaps a possibilty to let firefox do a HTML export of its bookmarks automatically when "ff `" is typed and then the bookmarks.html is read?

Currently it is possible to setup a hotkey which opens FARR and sets the text for the search edit box.
For example "translate %cliptext%".

It would be nice if this search could be launched automatically.
Using \n does not change the (visible) input.

Why do you want an adress field? In my opinion it's already there! There's only an "igo " before every URL...
Or do you actually want to see the current URL? Then one could easily write a little wrapper page with JS which shows the URL. I guess a full adress bar could be realized this way too (is it possible to retrieve the current URL of a page which is shown in an IFrame?).

FARR Plugins and Aliases / Re: Character Table Plug-In
« on: June 15, 2008, 02:51 PM »
Go to Options > Plugins, Updates, Fonts > Click to Examine and Configure Plugins...
Is the checkbox next to "Character Table" activated? If yes, click on the text and look whether there are entries in "Alias (override)" or "Regular Expression (custom override)".

I noticed another weird behaviour: It seems that the sorting is not correct, see screenshot!
It should be 01,...,09,10,11,12 instead of 01,...,09,12,11,10.

I think so too.

Find And Run Robot / File browsing
« on: June 14, 2008, 12:00 PM »
When browsing on my hard disk I always see the current folder as the first entry in the result list. Furthermore it's written in lower capital letters, even if the original name has upper capital letters (all the other entries are capitalized correctly).
In my opinion there should be an option to remove the first entry. But on the other hand you could also add a ".." entry (for the sake of completeness, which will navigate one level up).

When pressing "left" in file browsing mode while the focus is in the list, the level above is shown but the focus is completely away! Neither in the result list nor in the input field.

In the changelog delivered with the app you wrote "far://".

If i press Alt+Tab (without the option being activated) and FARR is on but hidden behind another window, I can see FARR for a millisecond but then it's again hidden.
