fixing that which broke

I think we may have a solution. Finally.

You “edge case” RMD users running the alpha versions of Firefox and Thunderbird 2 will know what I’m talking about but to recap… With any version of RMD installed, the Domain Name Mismatch dialog window will briefly appear for your “remembered” domains before RMD “wakes up” and dismisses it. I described this in more detail last month.

Anyhow, after spending way too much time sifting through Mozilla lxr, I have a rewrite of RMD that I’ve been testing. Successfully. So successfully that I’d like to recruit a few “beta testers” to give it a whirl. If you’d like to try it out I’d be most appreciative – it would be nice to get a spectrum of environments so non-Win32 users: I want to hear from you. (MinimizeToTray users I want to hear from you too).

If you could either shoot me an email (address is up there in the top right corner), or leave your contact info in the comments section and I’ll get you hooked up with an xpi. (Oh and maybe you could let me know your OS and TB or FF version too). To be honest testing won’t entail a heck of a lot of excitment. The new version should work exactly the same as the old version, only better.

update 2006-09-16: Many thanks to everyone who ran RMD through it’s paces. You can get the update in this post.

    I would like to test it. My e-mail is given in the form, I hope you can see it.

    Running currently English Thunderbird 2 alpha 1 (20060724) on WinXP and Polish Thunderbird on WinXP.

    Nothing exciting. WinXP SP2 also. Currently on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1b2) Gecko/20060910 BonEcho/2.0b2 but this can and will change.

    Don’t use RMD with TB (it’s possible? :0) so can’t help with that, sorry.

    Everything’s looking good, except the spam in the latest comment!

    I’m using polish TB with MinimizeToTray and Remember Mismatched Domains plugins, polish FF on windows XP SP2. The only problem I have is that when the box would appear (that is blocked) the TB window appears (it was minimized). I am willing to test this plugin.
