Thread: The "Clear" button is gray and does nothing

  1. The "Clear" button is gray and does nothing

    In my mail and newsgroup window, I have this "Clear" button next to the
    "Subject or Sender contains" box that is always grayed out. The tool
    tip implies that it would clear the search criteria, but it doesn't do that.

    What is it for?

    enter something into that search, then hit clear and it should clear
    that information out.

    That is what it's for. It's broken.

    I remember having heard about an addon stopping that thing. What have
    you installed?

    Because it needs the Extension Manager to disable all extensions, and we
    don't have the Extension Manager yet.

    "we don't have the Extension Manager yet." Does that mean there's one
    in the works?

    I think it is planned to port FFs Extension Manager to SM. AFAIK, but
    Robert might be able to shed more light.

    Does this mean that the Extension Installer Ver 2.0 (on Linux) is not
    supposed to be there?

    Could explain why, when I un-installed (or should that be outstalled??)
    "Downloadwith" with the Extension Uninstaller API 2.0, its still listed
    by Extension Manager!

    "Port" is the wrong word, as is "FFs Extension Manager" actually

    The Extension Manager is part of the XULRunner toolkit (and not specifc
    to Firefox, just also used there), which we're planning to also use for
    SeaMonkey in the future, and we're currently starting to work heavily on
    that.
    This is all work that's done on the "trunk" though, and won't be in any
    stable release before 2007 (currently working title for that release is
    "SeaMonkey 1.5").
    SeaMonkey 1.1 will still be shipped with all the "old" framework we have
    in 1.0, which also means no Extension Manager.

    You can be assured that we want to retain the feel of the suite even
    with that rather big changes going on, and we won't get to be a clone of
    Firefox because of that. It will be much easier to have the same
    extensions running in both applications though, for example. And we'll
    have much less SeaMonkey-specific code to maintain in our small
    development team, which also should help us in many ways.

    Finally, I have some extensions that are just for FF that I would love
    to have in SM.

    the extension uninstaller is an extension you added, probably from

    Yes, I added "Extension Uninstaller", even added it first, before the
    "Extension Manager" as someone said it worked better that way but don't
    ask me who, now

    (P.S. gwtc, it seems to me that you and I are conversing with each other
    on a lot of threads, both here on news.mozilla.org and, I think, back on
    secnews.netscape.com Don't you have anything better to do, either.)

    Nope! I'm in between business things right now. You wouldn't believe
