Version 1.0.3 of FLASH-AID has been approved by Mozilla and is now available through the Stable Channel. Future versions updates will be available through Firefox add-ons manager.
This is a good extension, so thanks. However, the update process today required me to reinstall the plugins instead of upgrading them, is this normal? I'm using 32bit.
Version 1.0.4 of the extension has been released and brings the following changes:
- fixed toolbar button
- added missing symlink on 32bit installs
- added visual confirmation before running the install script
- install script is now non-interactive
- added option to install flash 32bit 10.1rc7
Automatic updates through Firefox add-ons manager will be offered when Mozilla approves it, which should take about a week. Nevertheless, this version can be downloaded and installed directly from the Stable Channel on the extension site.
Beta Channel users will be offered to upgrade automatically to version 1.0.4rc, which is the final version.
I finally registered on these forums so I could commend you on your awesome flash extensions. Flash-Aid and FlashVideoReplacer have remedied all my flash woes.
I see what you mean, but it seems redundant to do this twice, as it had already done this process once when I installed and again when the upgrade came out. It doesn't bother me that much, it is just a case of having to hit yes 3 times instead of once.Yes. It is essentially the same as upgrading, the only difference is that the process used by the extension makes sure that there is no left-overs from previous installations. Lots of users perform several different installation methods while trying to make flash work that can leave traces behind and cause conflicts. So the extension remove the packages to make sure you have only the necessary ones.
Unless you think people are going to try different installations after installing this plugin? Which would be unusual of them as it seems to work nicely.
