TwitterFox broken with FireFox

Mozilla Foundation released lately security update for FireFox which broke my favorite Twitter client TwitterFox by that links in posts did not open anymore. I did a quick dive into the source and after a few tries I had a basic fix running. It is available for download here.

To install close FF, locate your profile directory and copy TwitterFox.jar to [profiledir]\extensions\\chrome\

The fix will remove the ability for TwitterFox to locate a tab, that has the URL already opened but I can easily live without that.

The author is informed and we will hopefully see an official update shortly.

Thank you for your feedback!

I’ve just fixed and uploaded new version of TwitterFox on my website. Please update your extension.
