User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021017 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021017 Net-Print is a useful piece of shareware (a System Extension) for assembling and printing a number of text clips from the internet. It works with text in a word processor and it works with e-mails or internet files obtained by means of Netscape 4.79. It does not work when Mozilla is used: all the items in the Net-Print drop-down menu are dimmed. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Drag Net-Print to the System Folder or the Extensions folder. 2. Start Mozilla and open a web page or an e-mail. 3. Select a portion of text, and open the Net-Print menu. Actual Results: All the items in the Net-Print menu are dimmed and cannot be used. Expected Results: The items in the Net-Print menu should be accessible and usable, as they are in Netscape 4.79. Mozilla: modern theme. Mac G3 (old beige type): OS 9.2.2. Software attached.
Created attachment 104500 [details] System Extension software, compressed by StuffIt. I am now trying to attach the software in compressed form.
Michael, this is something you should report to the makers of NetPrint, not Mozilla.
Greg: I have reported it to the maker of the software (no reply so far), but as there is no problem when using Netscape 4.79, I assumed that it was a Mozilla special. (I haven't tried it with Internet Expplorer yet.)
I have now tried Net-Print with Internet Explorer and it does work there, so that confirms my belief that the malfunction in Mozilla is a Mozilla problem.
Mozilla/Netscape 7 and Netscape 4.x use different API for content retrieval by external application?
Summary: Mozilla disables a System Extension (Net-Print) → [4XP] External application (Net-Print) cannot retrieve selection content in Mozilla?
Re Daniel Wang's reversal of subject and object: it is, surely, relevant, is it not, that the options in the Net-Print drop-down menu are dimmed as soon as Mozilla starts – before any web content or e-mail text is selected in an attempt to get Net-Print to process it?
While it sounds likely that this is Fizzilla's fault, Mozilla CFM build is dead. http://groups.google.com/groups?threadm=avkj4k%24ihs2%40ripley.netscape.com
