Description

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100423 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6.3

Torbutton 1.2.5

When torbutton is installed GUI customizations in Firefox disappear. By right-clicking on the toolbars and selecting "Customize" I have moved the Bookmarks toolbar to the top slot right after the "File" and "Edit" menus. I have also added extra buttons (like "Open new window"). After torbutton is installed these customizations disappear. See attached JPG screenshot.

Disabling torbutton restores the customizations. I have tried creating a new clean firefox profile and the same thing happens as soon as torbutton is installed.

what happens if you remove all the extensions but torbutton. You have lots of extensions which may be causing conflicts with torbutton.

OK, I have tried turning off plugins, starting with all off except Torbutton, and the problem seems to be a combination of Torbutton and Tab Mix Plus (at least the 0.3.8.2 version of Tab Mix Plus).

Not sure why these two plugins conflict, but that seems to be the combination that causes the loss of GUI customizations.

Will try an older version of Tab Mix Plus, if I can get one, and report whether the same problem exists.

rather than finding an old version, you may want to enable debug logging for extensions and see what torbutton or tab mix plus reports as errors when it is enabled.

In about:config you can set extensions.torbutton.loglevel to 1.

OK, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Tab Mix Plus and the problem seems to have gone away. Sorry for the report, I should have tried this sort of troubleshooting first. Anyway thanks for the great support, and thanks for your contribution to the project.

Seems to be fixed by installing Tab Mix Plus AFTER installing Torbutton. I'll set bug to Fixed.
