A new release is now up: v1.1.6
  • Update install manifest to use separate target application blocks
  • Attempt to solve issue #6 - set always on top to false as soon as main window is open. This fix isn't verified yet.

Just one big thing I would ask, is it possible for 'splashed' to interrogate the version num of PM / Basilisk on start up?? (read UA string or something?? )
VM 300Mbs in london england :lol: :coffee: on Intel Core I7 3GHz on Gigabyte X58a.
PM 28.10.0(64bit) on win7(64bit) sp1 - also trying to make Basilisk similar to palemoon! 8-) :lol: :P
Got 24Gig, Nvidia GTX 1060 :D dont need 4k - not rich, not gamer, newer GPUs only for $$$ peeps
:eh: useragentstring(com) :problem: FF 68.9 :angel: :P

Yep, you can use {appVersion}, {buildID}, and/or {userAgent} in the text override option at the extension's settings window and Splashed will automatically replace these with the appropriate values.

After the Update (v1.2.0) in Basilisk the logo only displays the last second or so (before the browser page loads) -- the splash screen is missing the logo for ~95% of the time the splash screen displays (see screen-shot):

Note: this doesn't happen for Pale Moon (so there's something different going on between the two browsers that's impacting Basilisk the way it is in regards to the way the splash screen renders).

I don't think he was actually --
my impression is that he was referring to this post in the current topic: viewtopic.php?p=195034#p194759 (but then I could be wrong :eh:).

But I can see why you might reach the conclusion he was responding to my post re: Basilisk (which I'm assuming is your conclusion :)) since the comment followed within less than 45 minutes of my post and there was no reference to what his comment corresponded to. ;)

I can provide you with fresh builds whenever you want them. BUT there is a price to be paid. You will have to venture to the forbidden irc channel!

Or something.

Is there specific CSS required to only display the image (if this is possible)? I am attempting to use Netscape Navigator's splash screen:
1 cqLQDb_FusL7e8ltKXCwWA.gif
1 cqLQDb_FusL7e8ltKXCwWA.gif (98.7 KiB) Viewed 1387 times
But I seem unable to get it to display without the window borders around it. The custom style I added is

Code: Select all

padding: 0px;
which I believe to be correct, but the splash screen still displays like this:
b.png
b.png (31.37 KiB) Viewed 1387 times
I've tried to add

Code: Select all

!important
to the above rule as well as setting margin to 0, and setting a fixed height and width as a last resort, with no effect. Is there anything in particular I'm missing in terms of code specifications?

Update to Splashed: v1.3.0
  • Retrieve splash window handle using nsIBaseWindow instead of using WinAPI GetActiveWindow
    - This should prevent cases where the main application window becomes always on top instead of the splash window
  • Take device pixel ratio into account when resizing the splash window on Windows
  • Use window `activate` event instead of `focus`
  • Prevent unnecessary updating of splash window state

Allow background transparency for Pale Moon 27 (and lower) and FossaMail
Regression testing revealed that bug #1239743 is the culprit for broken full window (non-glass) transparency on UXP-based applications. Reverting changes brought by the said bug allows windows to be fully-transparent again if chrome is hidden and window background is set to transparent.

Curious. That would mean that GetMaxTextureSize() for some reason fails to give back a reasonable number there (possibly 0?). Otherwise the code change doesn't do anything but constrain the texture size.
Are you creating an unconstrained window or something when you make the splash window?
