FireGPG
=======

FireGPG is no longer supported, the original author abandoned the project. See: [blog.getfiregpg.org/discontinued](http://blog.getfiregpg.org/2010/06/07/firegpg-discontinued/)

We simply grabbed a copy of the code and made it available on GitHub.

Known Vulnerabilities
---------------------

People considering using FireGPG should consider the following article: [tails.boum.org/FireGPG_susceptible_to_devastating_attacks/](https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_and_privacy/FireGPG_susceptible_to_devastating_attacks/)

Compatibility
-------------

This extension is compatible with Firefox 3 and above, on Windows, MacOS and Linux platforms.

Build the XPI
-------------

You can build an XPI for installation by running the build.sh script located in this folder.

For development you should do the following:

1. Unzip the entire contents of this package to somewhere,
    e.g, c:\dev or /home/user/dev
2. Put the full path to the folder (e.g. c:\dev\firegpg on
   Windows, /home/user/dev/firegpg on Linux) in a file named
   firegpg@firegpg.team and copy that file to
   [your profile folder]\extensions\
3. Restart Firefox.

Contributing
------------

Pull Requests are welcome and they will be accepted, but we will not be performing much (if any) testing on them.

See Also
--------

Several people from the FireGPG community have banded together and are working on two
new projects.  One is a replacement for FireGPG that will apparently initially target
the Chrome web browser from Google and then be released for Firefox.
The second is gpgAuth which is available for Chrome. (https://github.com/gpgauth)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
