mozilla calendar is not supported on Firefox?
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030329 Phoenix/0.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.2; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030329 Phoenix/0.5 install of mozilla calendar on phoenix is successfully done, but there is no way to reach to calendar. you may say, "It's for mozilla not for phoenix", I can not agree. Phoenix is well-done browser, so lose a powerful extension be great loss. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Phoenix way to handle extensions is different from Mozilla's one. -> Calendar/General, but not confirming, since the decision to support Phoenix is up to Calendar owners.

Any link on the way Phoenix handle extensions. I found 42 extensions but no documentation on how to do them :-(
http://www.xulplanet.com/ndeakin/arts/phoenix.html should help you. Dave Hyatt once made a nice page summarizing the changes, but it disappeared. http://www.mozillazine.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=39242 might also be useful.
I think I would rather see the calendar made into its own program, like Mail / News, then to become an extension to Phoenix. However, since this new roadmap is still new, I don't really completely understand the relationship between being an extension to Phoenix and being a seperate application. Confirming, but only to receive mail about this bug.

How to convert your Mozilla extensions Soon, Mozilla Firebird will be the primary web browser from Mozilla.org Brian King has written a document describing how to convert Mozilla Application Suite (SeaMonkey) extensions into Mozilla Firebird extensions. (URL : http://www.mozdev.org/notes/transition.html) This document is probably useful for you if you are an extension author for Mozilla. Mozilla.org News Posted by David Tenser | 2003-05-15 (copied from Mozilla Firebird Help : http://texturizer.net/firebird/)
This bug has been sitting here for quite a while now. Will it be ported to Firebird anytime soon?
Just a note that once you install the calendar XPI using Firebird you can get to it from command line: ./MozillaFirebird -calendar or MozillaFirebird.exe -calendar
Summary: mozilla calendar is not supported on phoenix? → mozilla calendar is not supported on Firebird (formerly)phoenix?
> MozillaFirebird.exe -calendar Above resolution is mentioned above, comment #5. [mozillazine forums] And, as you already know, it's not a complete resolution. Unfortunately it's not work with Firebird 05/25 ver.
For testing purposes. Here a zip archive with the modified calendar/content/contents.rdf and the new files to support Mozilla Firebird : - entry in Tools menu - registration as extension - settings from the setting button in Tools->Options->extension->calendar I used this files to modified the windows XPI package http://www.oeone.com/files/calendar_windows.xpi and it had work for me with MozillaFirebird 0.6.
Comment on attachment 125082 [details] ZIP of the new files and the modified contents.rdf Excellent job! I tested the modified files and they successfully added the calendar to the tools menu. Both windows and linux. Preferences work too. Just would've been better to receive this as a patch rather than in a zip file. Mikep: Can you take a quick look too so we can add this to cvs?

I'm reluctant to do this, since I don't want Calendar to be part of Phoenix, I want it to be its own application. Some will say that this is better than nothing, however I'm afraid that by doing this, we won't put the effort into making Calendar stand alone. Comments?
What is the issue here? Calendar is never going to be part of Firebird - I can pretty well assure you of that. Thunderbird possibly, but not FB. I guess the issue is whether or not to make Calendar an add-on to FB/TB or to make it into a separate app? Please correct me if I'm wrong but until Mozilla.org gets XRE and GRE up and running I don't see that you have that much choice. To have to include the XRE and GRE(?) elements in a stand-alone Calendar build seems to me to be insane, especially if a user already has FB and TB installed. Additionally, I would suspect that a lot of Thunderbird users would prefer to see the Calendar as an extension to TB once TB can handle extensions (I must confess that I don't see Calendar as the type of thing that makes a good FB extension as it is too different, unlike TB). My recommendation would be for now to enable the Calendar as a FB extension and then as a TB extension when that becomes possible. Other than that, just keep on improving the Calendar until XRE and GRE become available and decide where to go from there. I guess one question worth considering until then is how many non-FB/TB/Moz users are likely to want to use an XUL Calendar app.
Just a comment on Mike one : http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=200257#c14 I agree with Mike completely but I decide to look at this Firebird nevertheless. The reasons are mainly that : - the menu integration is very easy to do (and it was requested by some users). - the preference (or settings) integration mainly consist in the replacement of the mozilla overlay with independant window. The options window is no more integrated with Mozilla (or Firebird) but is not only calendar dependant. I think that this is also a step toward a stand alone calendar (a very small step).
About Mostafa comment : http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=200257#c13. I provided a ZIP (for testing purposes) because there is only one modified file and three or four new files. I can provide a patch for contents.rdf (if the feedbacks are positives).
Eric: I don't know what utility you are using but with diff you can use -urP to include the new files in the patch as well.
Thanks Mostafa for the guideline. I can finally provide it as a patch (if you want to test it). Note: we still have some errors in the JS console : Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPrefBranch.getBoolPref]" nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://communicator/content/profile/profileSelection.js :: StartUp :: line 97" data: no] Error: uncaught exception: [Exception...

Mike, I think both approaches are worthy of attention. Making Calendar an extension for firebird and /or thunderbird will increase its userbase and that is a worthwhile goal all by itself. Making it into a standalone-app (I saw the sunbird checkins today) is also good and interesting. But users, who have already installed Firebird/Thunderbird will want a small and lean extension without all the GRE stuff (especially those users with modems and ISDN which is still very popular here in Europe) and not providing calendar for those people will harm its adoption rate and testing coverage.

The calendar package correctly does not work completely with Firebird (no toolbar, no mail,...). My opinion is that we should place our effort in a Thunderbird package more that in a Phoenix package. The current code should be modified only be disabling or collapsing the commands which does not work with Firebird. A light package for Firebird which only display the calendar (but does not allow to modify it could be develop) The thunderbird support bug is http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=219589. Comments welcome

The first change needed is to have the supported versions bumped up to 1.5 Also it seemed to me, and dmose agreed, that the version of the xpi is better to be consistent with what Sunbird is at (0.3a1+) The version in about.html is usually only bumped up with official xpi releases but to differentiate from the last official release we need it bumped up.

After installing into seamonkey 1.0b, default startup window (no -calendar parameter) is now calendar window with no GUI way to get to any other window. Workaround: add -browser parameter to (shortcut) command to get seamonkey to display the browser window. Nice to be able to use DOM inspector again, though.
