#142 Shortcut doesn't open ext. editor in FF14.0.1


the external edito doesn't start via shortcut - only via contextmenu.
If the shortcut is executed within a editable/search field, it still opens the editor, but only shows the content of the editable field.

    Mozilla changed something inside their code and I've no time to try to fix it

    Authors of Web Developer toolbar ( http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/ ) has released new version about month ago and their solution works. Maybe you can get inspired?
    It's interesting that when I switch predefined save method from "Normal" to "DOM document", VSW works. But it shows generated source instead of the original one, of course.

    I dont know particular reason, but now it works.
    In function loadFromCache of urldownloader.js
    addProgressListener call twice

    this.progress.addProgressListener(this, nsIWebProgress.NOTIFY_STATE_DOCUMENT);
    this.progress.addProgressListener(this, nsIWebProgress.NOTIFY_STATE_DOCUMENT);

    Although an error, but it works and seems to be no problem.
    loadFromCache [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIWebProgress.addProgressListener]" nsresult: "0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://viewsourcewith/content/urldownloader.js :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 152" data: no]

    i took detour..
    we don't bother to edit the file.
    just in about:config
    view_source.editor.external = true

    it works fine on fx16 and winXp

    yes, I use the about-config workaround too, as it seems that this issue here won't be fixed

    although it was too nice to use a more handfriendly shortcut (e.g. ctrl+A) with VSW...

    Here (Firefox 16.0.1) ViewSourceWith does not work even via contextmenu. "view_source.editor.external" helped.
