It doesn't crash anymore :biggrin:

Firefox & windows only, sorry. I have a few more features I hope I can get in today/tomorrow before I take it out of beta. As always, any suggestions would be appreciated - especially on the interface.

ETA: Drag it into a firefox window to install.

What exactly does it do? My main OS is Linux, though. :(

Renders it client-side. It's good for learning latex, or for writing up a complicated expression before submitting it. I'm thinking I'll add automatic uploading sometime today. Linux support is my next big project after finishing the minor features.

Sounds good. I'll wait. :)

Hmm I thought I got rid of that bug. Is your c:\temp folder writeable? Try closing firefox & starting it again. Also try to reproduce it & post the steps.

I just created a folder called temp in C: and it worked just fine.

Linux only version is up.

It involves some fairly sophisticated code. I'll eventually figure out how to merge it into the main trunk..

The windows version is currently bogged down in the https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4082" [Broken]. If you've tried it & you have an addons.mozilla account, post something & bug those editors into making it public. :p

Great! Thank you very much. This seems to be very useful. Is there a way to add custom code?

Yeah ... mostly. Rename the .xpi as .zip & check. Adding new favorites is easy, adding new latex functions is hard. I'd appreciate any suggestions too.

Which file do I use to change the favourites? Should I install it again after changing them?

chrome/content/texwindow.xul

http://ted.mielczarek.org/code/mozilla/extensiondev/" [Broken] extension is very good for testing xul. Yeah you'll have to install it again unless you edit the currently installed extension.(in which case you just restart)

Tried that, but I get this error when trying to save the file. (I was accessing it as root, and that file was inside my home folder.)
You are trying to save the file on a read-only disk. Please check that you typed the location correctly and try again.
Of course, having the option to change the favourites from within the browser will always be welcome. :wink:

I don't know why firefox makes it read only. You'll have to change permissions.

yeah I was thinking about that & I have no idea how to do it.

Changing the permission worked! Thanks. Although I added \\kappa to the list of Greek letters and it appears as a mu. :biggrin:

You'd need to change its image src at <image src="chrome://... /> then go to chrome/skin/favorites and add the kappa image.

I've updated it with some more greek stuff.

K version 1.0 with uploading is done. I'm probably done with major features for now.
