Location-4-Evar: progress and status indicators in location bar

Unread post by JustOff » 2017-09-30, 13:03

I was asked to make an add-on to restore progress and status indicators in the location bar removed in Pale Moon 27.5.0 and here's what I got: Location-4-Evar.

Please note, that these indicators were removed from Pale Moon core for the serious reason:
Moonchild wrote:To clarify, it was crowded from a code perspective, and resulted in more than a dozen or so practical issues and UI bugs that would affect people who did NOT use this experimental feature (>95%). The only sane solution was removing the code causing these problems.
So don't be surprised if you get such problems back with the installation of this add-on, even though I tried to ensure maximum compatibility with the progress and status indicators built into the browser.

Personally, I've never used these features, and I'm not going to do so, but I'll try to provide basic support and deal with important bugs, if they are found.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

@justOff
First of all, many thanks.
One question though, how do we install? Under Linux in particular.

Thank you! Almost perfect. One thing though: it's impossible to browse for an image when customizing progress style.

Maestro JustOff,
This may seem esoteric but FireGestures status display (not trail drawing) doesn't appear in the location or status bars or in pop-ups when using L-4-E. Is this something you could troubleshoot? Thanks for your consideration.

Location-4-Evar option page problem with PMv28.0.0a4

For the "Options" button using v1.0.4 of the add-on I get this:

using Pale Moon version 28.0.0a4 (the add-on appears to otherwise work OK).
