  7. Hi Angelo,

    You may want to check your add-on code. After installing, it displays “null will be installed after you restart Firefox” – see screenshot http://screencast.com/t/Rjt0GuOh7

    I hope this helps.

      You can use the add-on safely, the weird message is due to the matter that Firefox doesn’t find the localized name. I think this is a small defect of Firefox, because the name of an add-ons rarely changes per language, so it should use the default value. Anyway I’ll fix it, thanks.

    Salve,
    scriverò con il mio pessimo inglese visto che non sono sicuro se siamo della stessa nazionalità o meno.

    Can you make this addon for Opera too? With userjs system i think you can make this vary easily… I know that Opera is rarely used, but you’ll could make my happiness, i was looking for an extension like this for a long time!
    Anyway cheers for your work :)

      Salve. Siamo della stessa nazionalità, ma per la gioia dei miliardi di visitatori giornalieri di questo blog scrivo in inglese :)

      Opera doesn’t support desktop notifications the way Chrome does. I don’t know whether I can do it with an hack as I did with the Mozilla browsers or if I can use external notification systems like Snarl,libnotify and Growl. Surely you can do something when the title of a tab changes, but I don’t know when/if I’ll have time to look into it. Maybe there is some willing geek that uses Opera daily… He would make my dad happy :)
      By the way, I do like Opera

        Thanks for the answer, i hope Opera add support for html5 desktop notification soon, so maybe i’ll be easy for you make a conversion.
        Sinceri saluti.
