Hi,

I'd like to create a webextension who open a zim file.
Someone can explain to me how i need to tell to firefox that he can open it and how can i mention that is my extension who must do it.

My actual solution (dirty) :
a python script who
1.decode zim file and extract all files in a temp directory.
2. launch firefox with the index.html

Hi,
That's not the right mailing list to ask browser extension related questions. Aside from that currently the Browser Extension API is targeted at the web content. So I believe it is not possible to open and process external files.
