  • Click Install Now after the Extension Manager window pops up.
  • Restart Firebird
  • Select Tools -> Extensions and double-click on MozEx

  • Under Textareas type gnuclient %t (see http://mozex.mozdev.org for more information)
  • To edit a Twiki page, make sure that Xemacs has been launched. Click on the Edit button then right-click in the textarea. The text will be sent to an Xemacs buffer. Edit and click Done when finished.
  • Click anywhere in the textarea to see the changes take effect

Errors with Mozex

If mozex reports an error with a message similar to "NS_ERROR_FILE_UNRECOGNIZED_PATH", it cannot find the path to the executable (for instance, gnuclient). To fix this, specify the full path to the executable from the mozex preferences (like /usr/bin/gnuclient).
