Looks like Firefox 12 was released: http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all.html

Any word on getting a GWT plugin that is compatible with it?

Thanks,
-James

This question gets asked every time when there's a new Firefox release.

Please search the list for similar topics on Firefox 5/6/7/8/9/10/11 and swap 12 for the version number.

I'm well aware of the other threads that exist. But these thread
tends to act as a central place for people to go to see if a build of
the GWT plugin is available. Alan has been very helpful in previous
few FF releases on getting us new plugin builds within a day or 2.

I'm just sitting and waiting for Alan or another Googler to say they
have a build or are working on it. I'm not in any real rush, just
wanted to get the ball rolling.

I'm not annoyed by the threads asking for the progress the plugin. I'm more annoyed by Firefox itself.

One would thought that if they were to do rapid releases, at least they'd think of a way to provide compatibility with old plugins...

Why don’t people either:

– Turn off auto-update in Firefox* if they use it to develop in GWT? I
think it’s been proven that the only major thing these releases have
is their version number increment, so why the rush to update?

– Use Chrome to develop in GWT? I never had a single problem with the
GWT plugin since I started development.

* I _think_ they finally managed in version 11 to make a mechanism
that actually doesn’t still update Firefox behind your back at the
first opportunity if you explicitly disabled auto-update, assuming you
properly sacrificed a weighted companion cube using an adequate
garbage incinerator and the correct ritual.

Mozilla wants to deprecate extensions with binary components (it's not the same thing as plugins!), and having to recompile for each new version is an incentive to trying to find alternative ways (e.g. super draft/dev mode).

Or install a "portable" version that you use only for development.

You're lucky apparently:

Just wanted to say thank you man. The plug-in works great. It is a shame that Google couldn’t create these in a timely manner. Your effort is greatly appreciated – especially from those of us that have to get real work done.

Alan is a Google employee. The real shame is what Firefox is doing.

Agreed… right now the giant issue is Mozilla/Firefox.

If Firebug didn't exist, I imagine nobody would use Firefox anymore.  It is that simple.

I agree with the opinion that excessive FireFox releases are hard to keep up with. Our FireFox constraint is due to customer demand. All of our large telecommunication customers standardize on FireFox through out their company for it's stability (the majority also run Windows clients).
