Just version-bumped DS so it'll work in Firefox 4. Absolutely no other changes have been done, so it won't appear in the addon bar or anything like that. I will probably eventually add that when I'm bored enough.

If you downloaded from Mozilla addons previously, you'll need to manually grab it from the Deepest Sender site. I'm sick of complying with AMO's rules and code reviews so it's no longer on there.

Hopefully I signed the updater file properly and if you previously downloaded DS from MozDev, it should work (I was testing and couldn't get it working - wasn't sure if it was due to me screwing up or things taking a while to get through to MozDev mirrors). If it still errors out after a few hours let me know and I'll investigate.

I have a question. Is it possible to run Deepest Sender from the desktop without using Firefox? I have Firefox installed but I dont use it and I love Deepest Sender and want to use it.

Is this possible at all?

I haven't tried it since back in the days of I think Firefox 0.8 or so, but if you run Firefox with a parameter of -chrome chrome://deepestsender/content/ then it should load up DS without showing Firefox's interface. So if you were on Windows, it'd be something like:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -chrome chrome://deepestsender/content/

I can't guarantee it'll work perfectly though, as I haven't tried doing it for a long, long time. I attempted just then and it seemed to load okay though.

I did some experimenting with XULRunner a few years ago to get it to run standalone, but there wasn't enough interest to justify continuing with it.

That worked beautifully, thanks a lot.
