rmd 1.3.2

Version 1.3.2 of the Remember Mismatched Domains extension for Firefox and Thunderbird is now available. This latest version fixes a fixes a few very annoying issues:
- the Domain Mismatch Dialog no longer “flashes” on screen when a mismatch is remembered (more details on this bug here).
- Thunderbird will no longer “steal” window focus when a mismatch is ‘remembered’ during automatic message checks.
- solved a long standing problem for MinimizeToTray users that caused Thunderbird to be restored when RMD ‘remembers’ a mismatch.

Beta testers Rock
A little over a week ago I went looking for a few beta testers for this latest version and was thrilled to have a significant number of folks step up. We ended up with a great cross-section of users (and get this, Windows users were the minority). You helped me track down a few hiccups as well as put up with my tweaking of RMD throughout the week. Thank you all! (Just a note in case I missed anyone, if you installed version 1.3.0 or 1.3.1 during testing you’ll need to uninstall before getting this latest version, otherwise you’ll end up with the two versions installed).

What is Remember Mismatched Domains?
As if you didn’t know ;-) The Remember Mismatched Domains extension for Firefox and Thunderbird adds a “Don’t warn me again about this certificate for this domain’ checkbox to the Domain Mismatch and Expired Certificate warning windows. When selected the domain name and security certificate domain pair (or certificate and expiration date pair) is stored in a Firefox / Thunderbird preference and the security error dialogue will be bypassed on subsequent visits.

    I’ve been using you extension for month now, and it’s been very helpful – thanks! But, I had been getting annoyed at the “flash” popup, and so I tried another solution:

    (this is in Windows, mind you). I added the mismatched domain name to my hosts file with the *correct* IP address. This is just a hack, of course – if their IP address doesn’t remain static, then mail will quit working (thought it’s quick to fix). And also, I can’t ever use the mismatched donmain name (but I never would). Anyway, it works fine.

    But I was just curious, and I decided to go back to your page, and I saw that the bug has been fixed… So, I’m back to using you extension agin – thanks!

    This is a great add-on idea :-) Unfortunately, I am experiencing what looks to be a coding error with version 1.4.3. I am experiencing replication in the “Remembered Domain Name Pairs” option. Subsequently, each time I launch Thunderbird, it doesn’t remember the previously checked items and prompts me once again. I am running Thunderbird on Ubuntu 7.10 Tribe 5.

    Today I removed version 1.4.3 and installed 1.3.4, and it worked! :-) However, RMD is conflicting with the WebMail extension. I have verified this. If you need/want any debug info, please let me know.

    Watch out for the 1.3.x versions of RMD and Linux. The symptoms of the bug that was introduced in TB 2 tends to deceive one into thinking all is fine. I took to calling it “the Linux Problem” – see this post.

    I’m still trying to track down the 1.4.x issue… I’ll look into the Webmail extension conflict too.
