    Yes I have been playing since the day of release. All the mods I implement work apart from the Favorites add-on. I believe Mozilla have slightly changed the way add-ons work and secondly Plain-Old-Favorites doesn't work with FF 3.6 (yet).

    Eventually you will be able to upgrade 3.5.7 to 3.6.0, so don't worry about that.

    In short:
    - The Bookmarks menu is replaced with Favorites (just like IE). This allows the user to switch between IE and FF and read from the same list dynamically
    - The about:config menu is disabled
    - The import Favorites Wizard is disabled at first use
    - The Tools > Options menu is all greyed out
    - Proxy Settings and Exceptions can be pre-configured
    - The Homepage can be pre-configured
    - Deployable using an MSI

    Great, thanks.

    Do we still have to request the homepage and proxy from you or can we do this ourselves?

    No you can do it yourself by reading this - hope this explains all

    Hi,

    I have checked and I do have the entries in the exception field but still getting timed out when trying to access OWA and RM KLP. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    As an experiment uninstall the Mozilla Firefox (3.5.7) Logistix package and download the standard Mozilla Firefox from mozilla.org. Configure proxy settings through Tools > Options. Do you still have the same problem(s)?

    Do you mean the extension compatibility check? If so, Mozilla changed this in 3.6 from extensions.checkCompatibility to extensions.checkCompatibility.version.

    I mean when upgrading FF 3.5.7 to 3.6, your disableAboutConfig.js file no longer prevents the user entering about:config. Try it

    Haven't got round to testing that yet, but thanks for mentioning it though.

    I'll see if I can get it working with v3.6 or come up with an alternative. Might have to wait until the Firefox CCK Wizard add-on is updated though.

    Good news, the Mozilla Firefox (3.6) Logistix pack has been released! Download the latest version at logistixonline.com Apologies for the delay, but additional testing was required to ensure reliability and consistency
    For your reference you can upgrade from any prior version. Below are the final specs:

    - I have modified and tested the 'plainoldfavorites' addon, so it'll work with up to Firefox 4.5 theoretically. The Bookmarks menu is replaced with Favorites (just like IE). This allows the user to switch between IE and FF and read from the same list dynamically
    - The about:config modification no longer works. It works fine prior to upgrading FF 3.5.7
    - The import Favorites Wizard is disabled at first use
    - The Tools > Options menu is all greyed out
    - Proxy Settings and Exceptions can be pre-configured
    - The Homepage can be pre-configured
    - Deployable using an MSI

    Firefox 3.6 is also noticeably faster, especially when scrolling the forums on Edugeek!

    I've come up with another alternative for v3.6 which works the same way as the file:/// block. Put this in your userContent.css file.

    Code:
    @-moz-document url("about:config") {
    
        #config #configDeck
        {
            display: none !important;
        }
    
    }

    So, does about:config work in your release Michael?

    Edu-IT. It does (at least at the moment).

    Michael. Have you disabled the new 'Personas' feature in your version? If not, you may want to add this to your Mozilla.cfg.

    Code:
    lockPref("xpinstall.whitelist.add.36", "");
    Alternatively, you could use the userChromeJS extension along with this code to achieve the same.
