A mozilla extension (an .xpi file) is in fact a zip formated file. If your browser (IE, I guess) downloaded it the wrong way as a .zip file, you just have to rename it as an .xpi file to be able to install it.

If you don't know how to install a mozilla extension, here is a small guide.

Close  External Editor

Prerequisite: X11 must be installed and started when you want to use your editor.

Then, you need to have the DISPLAY environment variable defined at the begining of your mac session. For this, create or modify the file: ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist, where ~ is your start folder. You will probaby have to begin with creating the folder .MacOSX.

File content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">

If the file already exists, you just need to add these 2 values

You need to log out and log back in for the change to be taken in account.

No. Or at least, I woudn't recommend it, as it only works more or less, and only in some specific situations.
Word causes 2 problems:
  • If another document is already open in Word, it returns immediately after opening your message, so that External Editor thinks you have finished your work.
  • Some file locking problem (which I still haven't understood really) also avoid sometimes External Editor to works properly.
But Word is not a text editor, it's a word processor. Why would you use it here ? Some people wanted to benefit from Word's real time spell checking. In this case, the In-Line SpellChecker will solve the problem better. And this functionnality is now embedded in Thunderbird 1.1 .

Close  Web iPhoto Access (WiPhA)

  • Delete the wipha folder in your personal Sites folder
  • Switch off the Web server (optional)
  • Go the /etc/httpd and move the backup file httpd.conf.bak_wiPhA_<date> (if it exists) to httpd.conf (optional). This will suppress php support.
  • Go the /etc/httpd/users and move the backup file <user>.conf.bak_wiPhA_<date> (if it exists) to <user>.conf (optional). This will suppress local .htaccess support. This file is not modified anymore as of version 2.2.
