    My thought is that all of code that relates to TenFourFox may be useful to developers for OWB, as a reference, AND , as Andreas_Wolf has since pointed out, Quote:

    Andreas_Wolf: TenFourFox is licensed under MPL2 open-source license, so no authorization required.

    As I mentioned above, I wasn't just thinking of only the JavaScript, that I am fully aware Mark Olsen (bigfoot) is currently working on for us, but the whole code that Cameron Kaiser has worked on, as he may be sympathetic to our cause as there are not so/as many PPC systems left to utilise any PPC code, let alone his PPC code, and he may like to see it still get utilised by others, and offer us some help in understanding it, implementing it for our benefit, considering all the hours of hard work he must have put in to get it to where it is now, rather than he see it end up in the digital data wasteland, that is becoming larger year by year.

I am sorry but what you are proposing makes no sense.

    The JavaScript part above I already referred to, so I'll not mention that further, but I am not, and I feel you must be in the same position - unsure as to whether it makes any sense or not, to ask the question, because if it is not asked how can anyone know if the question was worth asking or not until it has been asked? :-?
