Firefox 8 support
Tested with Firefox 8 on Ubuntu 11.10 and it worked just fine (as root).
fixed facebook handler
documentation update regarding firefox as root
clarified that we must run under a real root user and not sudo otherwise firefox profile will corrupt
Add-on compatiblity bumped to Firefox 10
Successfully tested and working on 9.x and 10.x on Ubuntu 11.10
Just re-tested the whole thing and it works great under FF10 on Ubuntu 11.10 catching facebook and linkedin.
this doesn't seem to work, even though I can see that a parameter named 'xs' is effectively sent in the HTTP GET request nowadays. Any idea?
I know it doesn't work for mobile or touch facebook. For normal facebook it worked at the time but maybe facebook changed again...
Have you tried another handler to make sure you are setup correctly? If so, then the best way to fix this is to open wireshark and start firefox in a console, have another computer browse facebook and try to find the new cookie. You can modify handlers directly into firesheep.
I have just tested. I can capture flickr, but not facebook (it does not even show up in the list). Wireshark shows these cookies: datr, lu, local, c_user, xs, act, presence, p. The domain is rightly www.facebook.com. If you have a cooked solution I'd be happy, otherwise I'm going to fiddle with the script when I have a bit of time.
Please submit separate pull requests for any handler updates and use #149 to discuss the HAL issue. Thanks.
