• September 24th, 2014 - OpenBox no longer works with Firefox as of version 29. I looked into fixing it but there were major changes to code in Firefox that the extension relied on. I was also unable to find documentation detailing the changes. I am hoping to find some time to work on it, but as it hasn't happened yet I can't make any promises. If anyone wants to assist with OpenBox or take it over entirely, please let me know.
