If you want to use ColorZilla on Ubuntu Feisty it may not work out of the box. So here is a little tutorial to get it running. (I am using Firefox 22.214.171.124 on Ubuntu Feisty) -> Should be upgraded to 126.96.36.199 now 🙂
- Download libxpcom* for Firefox ColorZilla (VS von 188.8.131.52). Alternatively you can download the newest Release of firefox from www.mozilla.com and extract firefox/libxpcom*. You only need this 3 files.
- Copy the 3 files as root to /usr/lib/firefox/
Note: I had firefox running and as I started copying firefox crashed. (So If you do not close it before it will do it for you 😉 )
- Install ColorZilla from https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/271
Now the Eyedropper-Tool should work. I waited a long time for such a tool =)
EDIT: Seems that other extensions are too affected such as greasemonkey or firebug. An alternative would be to install firefox the normal way and do not use the ubuntu-firefox version but I heard there are some problems with sound and flash… You can download the current one here: libxpcom* for Firefox ColorZilla (VS von 184.108.40.206), VS 220.127.116.11.
