Panic Button issue on macOS is fixed on Firefox 121 and 115.6 ESR

Back in August, I wrote about an issue affecting Panic Button on macOS that occurs if the Panic Button action is set to "Minimize All Windows" and the "Open a new window after all browser windows are minimized" option is selected. More details can be found in this blog post.

I finally have good news to share: this issue is now fixed in Firefox 121, which was released last week. Update Firefox to this new version to resolve this issue. Users on Firefox ESR should update to version 115.6.

If there are any questions, post to the AE Creations Help and Support forums.

Happy Holidays!

Monthly update: December 2023

With the holiday season approaching, and having just returned from a two-week vacation, I'm keeping my project work load fairly light.

There is still some work needed to fix up the built-in toolbar icons for Panic Button. I am contemplating the possibility of a new version of this Firefox extension, possibly numbered 4.5, to release the improved icons, since Panic Button 5.0, the version that has been migrated to Manifest V3, is unlikely to be released any time soon due to an outstanding bug with tab permissions in Firefox.

I haven't had time to do the research that I had planned for fully migrating Clippings for Thunderbird to a MailExtension. I might have time towards the end of the month to work on that, but it's likely that may get put off to the new year.
