I was having trouble installing Jslib on Thunderbird, so I thought I'd
check the archives here to see if anyone else had the same trouble. I
was quite amused to see that the archives currently consist of 4
messages, 2 of which are unanswered help requests for my exact problem. :-)
Well, I'll try to get this straightened out myself then, and post an
answer here, so the count for this problem doesn't go up to 4 messages.
To give a bit more detail:
I'm using Thunderbird/Firebird.
I want to use Tagzilla
Tagzilla requires Jslib, so I guess I want Jslib
What I've found:
* Apparently separating the browser and mail tool has its drawbacks.
Just clicking on the install links for Tagzilla and Jslib from
within Firebird will get both installed on Firebird, but not on
Thunderbird (mostly...). That allows use of Tagzilla through the
clipboard, but that's not quite as integrated as one would like.
* Attemping to right-click "Save As" on the install links (as per
website instructions) from within Firebird will save you an HTML
page, not the XPI installers one needs to install these tools.
* Tagzilla has an XPI download link that can be used. After
downloading you can install Tagzilla into Thunderbird through the
Options Extensions group. However, as mentioned by a previous
message, it just complains that Jslib isn't installed (even though
* Jslib does not appear to have an XPI download link anywhere, so
you can't use the same trick with it.
When(if) I get it figured out, I'll post an update.
