I am using the gnome-keyring extension for Firefox/Thunderbird.
There used to be a PPA for this plugin, but the maintainer gave up, as the new policy for xulrunner makes it uneasy to keep up with latest firefox version: see the rationale here.
It refers specifically to this post stating xulrunner dev will be removed from Ubuntu.
So the extension is now available in Debian, in Fedora, but not in Ubuntu !
Currently, I just pinned Firefox to the latest compatible version (22), but I am willing to compile this extension by hand.
The source code can be found on github. It depends on xulrunner sdk.
So here is my questions:
- is there a way to get xulrunner sdk into my system and to compile this extension ?
- if so, is it likely to work with Firefox/Thunderbird as shipped by Ubuntu ?
- is there some kind of howto / documentation on the current state of developping / maintaining / packaging extensions for Firefox on Ubuntu ?
