With the help of many testers, thanks guys for your valuable feedback. We have been updating this extension in stages.
Stage 1, (completed)
Updates the architecture detection to automatically create Firefox for
i) x86 (tc-32bit),
ii) x64 (tc-32bit user-space apps on x86_64 kernel) and
iii) corepure64 (pure x86_64) configurations.
Stage 2, (completed)
Updated to provide Firefox with locale support (complete language support as provided by Mozilla).
Detection of local language support is based on the "lang=xxxx" bootcode which modifies the download script resulting in creation of a locale specific, latest Firefox extension
Stage 3, (in progress)
Support for .mar incremental upgrades for folks who are bandwidth challenged (if I can get this to work as advertised).
1. detection of free-space remaining, (completed)
Which now reports free space in MB's available (instead of %). This feature also limits firefox download and extension creation with less than 200MB remaining. (fixed)
2. timeout menu's, (in progress)
Will try to replace time-out menus with command line arguments. the idea behind this is to assist in efficient uninterrupted extension build without missing the menu objective.
3, Name changes, (in progress)
With the current forum discussion of older unsafe Firefox versions in repo's, perhaps it's time to revisit a name change for the created firefox extension.
a, I'm thinking simply firefox.tcz (replacing firefox-official.tcz).
b, Perhaps also take the opportunity to submit and maintain the current firefox-ESR to the repo, this being the latest Extended Support Release. long lasting secure revision for the repo, with less frequent updates is easier to maintain..?
c, Also maybe appropriate to change the name of this extension with an appropriate description.
I'm thinking "firefox-getLatest.tcz" in keeping with the creation of a latest extension as opposed to firefox-latest.tcz which implies is the latest version..?
4, some minor cleanup..
I've attached here the current script which incorporates the above completed changes, extension will be updated soon.
