I've been working on my job skills to remain employable. A lot of people are losing their jobs and then getting depressed because they have nothing to do except look for a job. They should be spending their time more constructively. I don't have much to do at work so yesterday I worked through a tutorial on Firefox Extension Development. I use Firefox all day at work and home because its extensions are useful for web development. It will be cool to create my own custom extensions. Today I experimented with the localization aspect of a Firefox extension. There are several things that were left out of the tutorial.
- You need to install language packs to change the language that Firefox uses in its application interface.
- You need to
HTML clipboardassign a user-interface language to a profile. There is a Locale-Switcher extension to make it easier.
- Your Language Document Template Definition (DTD) files cannot contain accent marks. You have to use HTML entities like é to ensure valid XML.
- All of your XUL files need to reference the DTD.
- You need to add a line in your chrome.manifest file for the locales.
