Developer Chat With Dave Hyatt

Saturday January 1st, 2000

Our next developer chat will be with Dave Hyatt this Thursday, January 6, at 3pm PST (PST is GMT-0800). Dave will be talking about the Mozilla UI and its "skinnability" (the ability to customize the interface). This should be a great chat for those of you interested in Mozilla's UI customization, so be sure to stop by at #mozillazine at It can be as easy as visiting our chat page and using the Java chat client that we provide there.

yes, mozilla has irc. to set it up you have to modify a couple of prefs in the all.js file under bin\defaults\pref. first step is to go the the Tasks menu item and select IRC chat. this will load a page that tells you how to modify the pref. Basically you look for the two prefs pref("security.checkdomprops", true); pref("security.checkxpconnect", true); and change the 'true' value to a 'false'. Once you have done this (with mozilla closed) you open mozilla and click IRC chat (on the Tasks menu again) and from there click on the test3.xul button and it will launch the chat window. If you have any problems post a follow-up and I'll try to help. (note that the default nick is IRCmonkey or something like that, you might want to change it before joining a channel).
