I regularly update my firefox extentions (on ubunbu) when presented with the option. Almost always, everything is OK. But last week the latest del.icio.ous (now delicous.com) update broke my firefox:
The delicious bookmark menus would not show.
No more pageup/pagedown, cursor keys, spacebar, tab.
Especially that last one is serious. Completely breaking the main way in which I interact with my pages… I did not know a plugin could have that much effect. Pretty bad that a plugin can have that effect and pretty bad that a plugin does break most keyboard interaction.
I reported it on the delicious.com support forum. I’m not the only one.
Downgrading to 2.1.072 helps, get it on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3615/versions/ , Erik van Oosten hints. Yes, everything works again.
A yahoo developer points to the yahoo support mailinglist, but I can’t find a mention of this issue there, so I’m not bothering to register: too many mailinglists to track…
So: watch out when updating this extension on linux! Pretty bad that it’s broken as I generally like the extension a lot! So I hope that they’ll fix it soon :-)
