Some XPI extensions, such as FlashBlock, when installed manually, work just fine in Camino. This suggests that some subset of XPI Mozilla (and Firefox?) extensions should be allowed to work normally in Camino.
See <news://news.mozdev.org:firstname.lastname@example.org> for my description of installing FlashBlock in Camino.
Could you perhaps pate you text here, as some of us do not have a news reader installed and thus can't view the info.
Sure. Okay, I finally spent a few minutes installing FlashBlock into Camino and it works fine. It’s absolutely easy. http://FlashBlock.mozdev.org/ 1. Quit Camino 2. Install the FlashBlock XPI into Mozilla 3. Find the FlashBlock.jar, copy it to ~/Library/Application Support/Camino/chrome/ 4. Open the chrome.rdf from the Mozilla user profile you installed FlashBlock into 5. Copy the FlashBlock RDF:Description element to your Camino chrome.rdf 6. Change the c:baseURL attribute value to refer to Camino’s chrome directory instead of Mozilla’s. Be sure to encode the space in Application Support, thus Application%20Support 7. Copy the FlashBlock CSS rules from Mozilla’s userContent.css to Camino’s. Now launch Camino and visit Shockwave.com and see that all Flash media are replaced by the FlashBlock graphic. Mouse over it and notice it changes to a “Play” button, and that the Flash animation plays only when clicked. Voila, goodbye Flash ads!
Wow, that’s pretty neat.. especially handy to have around given Camino’s flash performance.
Tried to do this with 2004111608 Flash is blocked but without the placeholder. Also tried with a new Camino AppSupport directory with the same result.
Nevermind third times a charm Flashblock is working as it should
Are there any plans to add Tools to the Camino menu bar so that the less technically inclined of us might someday have extensions that are easy to install? After that maybe someone can convert the Mozilla or Firefox extentions, that can be used with Camino. IMHO the extensions are the only feature that FireFox has that is better then Camino's.

Actually, I imagine this would also apply to K-Meleon and any other non-XPFE Gecko embedders that exist.
Is anyone working on adding a Tools Menu to Camino? If not, Bug 283193, needs to be reopened.

What's needed for this to happen? Do we need xpinstall support? etc...
