I'm attempting to put Firefox onto the network today and have found the very useful guide in the Wiki (http://www.edugeek.net/wiki/index.ph...g_Down_Firefox), however, I'm a bit stuck on the CCK Wizard - I've downloaded it but don't what I've got to do it and I can't find any installer for it - just a single .xpi file.
Open the XPI in FF (File --> Open File) - it's an addon for FF.
Thanks for that, I suppose it quite obvious in the end!
Now I've managed to uncompress the jar file (to restrict what they can browse to) but now can't figure out to compress back to a jar file - tried both WinZip and Winrar
right click on .jar file > open with 7zip
go to browser.js and drag it to the desktop. then drag the file from the desktop into firefox to edit (because notepad is crap and screws up the spacings). In firefox select all and copy the text into notepad, to retain the correct spacing. Edit the file and save the file in notepad as browser.js Now drag that file back into 7zip (the overwrite the browser.js) and click close.
probably a decent text editor might overcome the firefox copy and paste workaround
Ok, thanks that's worked.
I'm currently trying to restrict the locations they can browse - the example in the wiki provides me a way to restrict it to everything bar the web, but I need them to access the N:\ (the home folder). I think i've gathered how to put the exception in for this but when I load up Firefox it displays nothing at all, taking out the offending line makes it works again. I've attached below...
(!location.match(/^file:///N://^) && location.match(/^file:/)) ||
(!location.match(/^about:blank/) && location.match(/^about:/))
I couldn't get that working... Can you publish N:\ as a site in iis/apache ?
The problem is that most students will naturally just double-click on the file in their my documents which would open up in IE/Firefox as N:\ in the address bar, or preview in Dreamweaver again which would open up as N:\ etc
