Great addon - but what about TOR Firefox

Have it working well in latest Firefox v23 with an old HP notebook with an inbuilt fingerprint reader and DigitalPersona - many thanks

Is there anyway to get it working with TOR Firefox?

I assume this uses Java, so in that case it may be a security risk in TOR. But I can always run 2 versions of TOR - with without I suppose

Only use TOR because I like privacy - nothing dodgy at all

I am not familiar with the TOR browser, but from what I can see, it is just a modified version of Firefox. Without knowing the details, I cannot see why it should be an issue to use Fingerfox (SE) in that browser.

No, the plugin does not use Java.

Have you tried installing the plugin ?
If you can\'t make it work, please provide details about what happens. (Haven\'t yet tried it myself)

Tried to respond a few hours ago, but login was acting up. Oh well.

Yes, I was hoping it would work.

In Tor the FF icon \"flashes\" when on a page requiring login. But click it (or Alt X) and absolutely nothing happens. No popup at all.
Click setup OK - port checks ok.
Not sure what else to try

Be a huge bonus for TOR users to get it working.

DigitalPersona worked fine on very early versions of TOR, up to Firefox 3

TOR web sit is
www.torproject.org

Thanks

Fingerfox (SE) does launch an external application. Maybe that is the problem.
I might look into this in the future, but don\'t expect anything soon. I am hoping to do a rewrite of the plugin, but I have some other projects to complete first.

Thanks for reporting though. :)

If you want, I can contact you by email when I have a new test-version ready ? Please ensure your email address is correct.

Hi,

I appreciate your interest in this addon, but unfortunately there is currently no active development on this project. I\'d like to start developing a new version, but I really cannot find time for it at the moment.

I am sorry to tell you that you should probably expect months or even a year before anything starts to happen.

I am busy studying, working and doing other programming projects.
Hopefully you\'re not too disappointed.
