Hi guys, im in the middle of writing a new addon for Orca.
Anderson took a lot of the original mozilla stuff out and replaced it with Avants menu system.

So there is a few tiny things that are very usefull that you can still access.
Kudos found the urls to these in the system jar files;
http://forum.avantbrowser.com/viewtopic ... 74&t=25173


Ive been working on a way to redirect the browser to those pages, but redirections and javascript dont work. Shell commands do however work. For now im going to release these here as seperate plugins.
If I cant integrate them into one plugin (I might have to make a small menu application) then ill eventually push these into the releases forum.

Let me know what you guys think. Especially if you have any suggestions as to how to go about it.

This is a proof of concept one for now, ill upload more later.

I add the chrome:// URL's as bookmarks and they work well.
Is there an advantage to having them as addons?
BTW - Mozorca, cool name, I like ;-)

Not at all no, but I was hoping to get all the links into one button, like a drop down menu.

Many useful options are unavailable for normal users who will never read this forum, or who even don't speak English. Most useful options should be integrated into Orca options dialog IMHO - also to prevent conflicts, there are Orca options, hidden about:config options, firefox dialog and more "Useful Orca/Fiefox settings".

Don't know how complicated it might be, but they are all existing options, just GUI is needed. Perhaps at least a buton in the Orca options to open for example about:config options - there is a warning, so it should be OK...

Just save it somewhere and import via Tools > Orca Browser Options > Add-ons > Import

Or... [url=aba://forum.avantbrowser.com/download.php?id=1740]Click Here to Auto Install[/url]

Install it as bigC described. If the icon doesnt appear then you need to click View>Toolbars>Add-ons to show it.
This ONLY works in Orca.
