Mozilla to automatically block unwanted Firefox add-ons

Mozilla’s Firefox will soon start blocking browser add-ons installed by other programs until users explicitly approve them, a move that’s designed to give people more control over their web surfing experience. The feature will debut next week in the Firefox Aurora beta, Justin Scott a Mozilla product manager for add-ons said Thursday. It will be activated each time the browser is started. If it detects a new add-on that’s been installed by another program, it will disable it and present the user with a dialog box. The add-on will be unblocked only after the user approves the add-on.

“Third-party applications frequently install bundled add-ons into Firefox as part of their own installation process,” Scott wrote. “While some of these applications seek the user’s permission beforehand, others install add-ons into Firefox without checking to make sure the user actually wants them.” Continue reading Mozilla to automatically block unwanted Firefox add-ons

Solution: Ovi Store Problems After Update

Recently I got an E7 for trial for 2 weeks and as I started using it, I got a notification to update the Ovi store to version 2.08 to 2.12. But there was a surprise awaiting me.

After the update, Ovi store was stuck at Loading.. as in the pic above. I searched a lot over the net but couldn’t find a solution to it! I finally approached @NokiaHelps over Twitter in order to at least get some lead.

And then I got a reply from them and asking me to install the Qt files over to my E7 via the Ovi suite as to solve the issue.
The files can be found in the attached ZIP file, and should be installed in the sequence listed below:

1. qt.sis
2. qtwebkit.sis
3. qmlviewer.sis
4. qtmobility.sis
5. Notifications Support Package Symbian3 v1.1.11120.sis
6. Notifications Environment Selector Symbian3.sis

Following this re-installation of files over to your mobile, Ovi store being stuck at Loading.. is solved.
As far as I have noted, this problem exists over the E7, C7, N8.

So to all those who are facing problem with Ovi store, kindly download the Qt files package from below and install them.

Hope it helps.
