Hi, this is v1.9 RC2 of my extension BetterSearch. It's the entire extension, which I hope to be able to release soon.

I've already got language files for English, Italian (thanks Roccobot & Goofy), German, Catalan and French. I am looking for Spanish and whatever you are willing to throw my way. smile.gif

If you provide a translation, please make sure to tell me the name you want to be listed under in the acknowledgment section of the BetterSearch options dialog!

Thanks in advance, if you have any question, just ask!

Cheers,
Carlo

Hi Carlo smile.gif

I made the fr-FR localization wink.gif

I also created another xpi file (see attached file) in which:
- I deleted mcsearchpreview.jar
- I deleted .DC_store files
- I added description localization pref in prefs.js

I noticed a line in optionsDialog.xul which should be localized:
CODE
<description>Roccobot, Goofy and the whole eXtenZilla.it crew (Italian); Oriol Gonzalez (Catalan) and last but not least the BabelZilla.org team.</description>

EDIT: attached file deleted (useless now)

Thanks a bunch for the fr-FR files! I appreciate your work. smile.gif

A few notes:

- mcsearchpreview.jar is there for a reason; that was the name of the extension up until a few months ago when I changed the name. Problem is, the jar file was named mcsearchpreview.jar back then, and when you upgrade from an old to a current version, you run into problems w/o this jar file. Sounds silly, but I haven't found another way to fix it.

- Localized description: you da man, and don't you let anyone tell you otherwise! Thanks. smile.gif

- Translation of the acknowledgements: no, because that'd mean I'd have to contact all translators everytime there's a new language pack, and that's a bit too much for me...

Cheers!
Carlo

I understand now. The update system really doesn't work fine... sad.gif

Did you submit that bug on Bugzilla ?

Not yet, no.

PS: Uploaded the updated XPI (1.9RC2). (Most of) Ptit's changes are in and I've debugged the ca-AD locale (there was a ">" missing, thus throwing errors).

The locale structure hasn't changed, of course.

Cheers!!

Some precisions:

Works fine with a clean profile but not with the current sad.gif

Re "magnifying glass": I can't reproduce the error. Are you sure you haven't enabled the "hide icon" option? (Just asking.)

Re "drop-down lists": found the culprit! Damn you, setIntPref() and getIntPref(), for having almost identical name! wink.gif

Thanks for the reports.

Yes I am wink.gif.

The magnifying glass doesn't appear at start, only when I load a page.
I can't reproduce the issue with a new profile. I don't know that's wrong with my 2 current profiles sad.gif.
I've got no problem with Gmail Notifier statusbar icon for example.

I assume the implementation of the Gmail Notifier icon is different. I'll take a look at it when I have some time.

On babelzilla there seems to be an entity missing.

<!ENTITY thumbs.source.zottmannorg "by BetterSearch.zottmann.org">

I looked on other languages and it's the same.

I translated the extension in romanian (code ro-RO, used rc3 above), I'm attaching the files here, that includes the above entity.

For my info, my name is Alexandru Szasz.

Please use the following text for the ro-RO localization of the description used on addons.mozilla.org

CODE
O extensie pentru Firefox care îmbogăţeşte rezultatele afişate de Google (toate ţările), MSN Search, Yahoo Search, A9, Answers.com, AllTheWeb, Dogpile.com, del.icio.us and Simpy.com adăugând previzualizări (miniaturi), imagini şi informaţii (tip, preţ, evaluare) ale produselor pentru Amazon precum şi legături ca „Deschide într-o fereastră nouă”, „Informaţii despre sait”, „Wayback Machine” şi previzualizare rapidă pentru rezultatele căutării.

Vă rog să reţineţi că atunci când folosiţi BetterSearch şi urmaţi o legătură dintr-un rezultat de pe Amazon, suportaţi dezvoltarea acestei extensii dacă cumpăraţi un produs. Dacă doriţi să aflaţi mai multe despre acest comportament, este explicat în detaliu pe saitul extensiei (vedeţi FAQ).
