My first Firefox extension! (FlashTracer)

Ok, it does nothing particular new, but it’s my first one 🙂

source url What it does?
If you have a flash debug player version you will see in the firefox sidebar all the swf trace output while running any of the swf in a browser window.
I have to say thanks to jayjam (Giuseppe Montemurro) who talks about the mm.cfg file yesterday at the From A to Web Adobe conference. I’d never read about this cool feature of the debug players.. and so I decided to make it as firefox extension.
I took 1 hour to make the XUL and js files, while the .xpi package was driving me crazy!.. the documentation is really terrible for my point of view.

http://www.wqlx.net/assignees/ P.S. If you’re running the new 9,0,28 Flash plugin probably you noticed this extension wont work anymore. Adobe changed something and the plugin doesn’t read as previously the mm.cfg file so I’m invetigating on it. In the meanwhile you should tell the extension to point to this file: source site C:\Documents and Settings\{user}\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\Logs\flashlog.txt.

For mac osx it should be: username:Library:Preferences:Macromedia:Flash Player:Logs:flashlog.txt

Using this path the flash tracer works again.

For discussing about this extension please use the forum instead of the comments here 🙂
