Layout issue with Gecko Version Note box

The way the Gecko Version Note box insists on floating down until after the table of contents is rather unfortunate. Not only is it ugly, but at one point it actually confused me into thinking that the page was empty (though that was before the switch to the new skin a few days ago). --Naesten 23 November 2010

appversion example

I don't really understand how to use appversion from the text here; certainly an inclusion of an appversion use in the example would help --EyalRozenberg 02:59, 27 December 2007 (PST)


quoting: "As of the first Firefox 1.5 beta release, this flag will be enabled by default,"

Is this now the case ? If true, I think present tense should be used instead of future for more clartiy. --Ricky 17:16, 31 May 2006 (PDT)

Multiple values for a single flag

Can you set multiple values for a single flag? For example, if a line should apply to two apps, does application={guid1},{guid2} or application={guid1} application={guid2} work?--Np 21:21, 28 September 2006 (PDT)

The flags are ANDed together, so application={id1} application={id2} wouldn't match anything

That's not what you wrote earlier...--Np 21:26, 1 October 2006 (PDT)

Which manifests are read

We need documentation on what locations does Firefox/XULRunner search for chrome manifest files. (The logic in nsChromeRegistry::CheckForNewChrome and nsXREDirProvider::GetFilesInternal in the case of NS_CHROME_MANIFESTS_FILE_LIST) --Nickolay 12:31, 6 November 2006 (PST)

override 'recursiveness'

The note I added isn't all that clear, I suppose. I'm not sure how to word it better, but the idea is that while this rule:

content foo bar/

will also give chrome privileges (and chrome:// url alternatives) for every child file and subfolder of bar/,

override chrome://foo/content/bar/ bar/

will not. GijsKruitbosch 13:36, 20 May 2007 (PDT)

override not working as expected

ive tried overriding some of the browser's chrome in the 2 following ways, neither of which worked:

#Method 1 - chromelist tells me theres some problem with this...
override chrome://global/content/printdialog.xul with chrome://lwrext/content/printdialog.xul 
#Method 2 - nothing complains, opening the overrided url directly does open what i need...
#           but clicking on file > print does the old thing
override chrome://global/content/printdialog.xul with file:content/printdialog.xul 

ive tried reloading the chrome, checked that a lot of  about:config settings are set, restarted Firefox many times...but to no avail. i dont know where to go with this. mozillazine wont let me post, irc.mozilla.org just never connects.
