* Works on Nightly 20.0a1.
* Drop support for Firefox 9 and older versions.


Fox Splitter 0.6.2012042401
* Provide auto-update for Firefox 4 and later


Fox Splitter 2.1.2012042301
* Improved: Better handling about resizing and moving of grouped windows. Now, switching workspaces on Linux don't break sizes and positions of grouped windows.
* Improved: Add a new feature "stretch the window to the size of the group". In other words, you can hide other member windows to concentrate your eyes on a window.
* Improved: Keep the size of the group smaller than the screen if possible. If you are trying to open a new member window and it will be out of the screen, then the whole group will be moved and resized to show the newly opened member in the current screen.
* Fixed: Restore nested groups correctly.
* Fixed: Disable "auto hide" feature of the toolbox temporarily, while in the toolbar customization.
* Fixed: Free memory completely when this is disabled or uninstalled.
* Fixed: Fix configuration dialog about platform specific workarounds.
* Fixed: Don't hide the sidebar in grouped windows if Ez Sidebar ( ) is installed.
* Modified: Drop support for the secret preference "shouldFixActiveWindow". Now, focused window isn't shown with complete UI until you set the window as "main" manually.


Fox Splitter 0.6.2012042301
* Provide ability to update Fox Splitter 2.x automatically.


Fixed: Failed to detect location of wmctrl.


* Drop support for Firefox versions from 3.6 to 9.0. Now Fox Splitter…
… works on Firefox 10 and later.

* Improved: The toolbox in split windows can be hidden/shown automatically.
* Improved: On Linux, control overlapping order of windows more silently by wmctrl ( ) .
* Improved: Add a new option to disable automatic-resizing of other windows (to keep window size ratio).
* Fixed: Correct UIs for some options. They didn't work correctly: "When the 'Split' button in the toolbar is clicked" and "When the 'Split window' in the Firefox menu is clicked".
* Fixed: Save and restore the state of grouped windows correctly.


* Works on Nightly 12.0a1.
 * Improved: Window frames for grouped windows are now shrunken for Aero Glass (Windows Vista and later).
 * Improved: Now we can disable "auto rising" of grouped windows. To do it, set the secret preference "" to "-1".
 * Improved: Now the only one "main" window in a group has full UI and others have minimal UI, even if window focus is changed. You can change the "main" window from the menu of the toolbar button.
 * Improved: "Split" button works more intelligently (split to right, split to bottom, split to right, ...)
 * Improved: Scrolled positions of windows which are split from one tab are controled like a two panes in a window.
 * Fixed: Used-defined keyboard shortcuts didn't work.
 * Fixed: Works with single maximized window correctly.
 * Fixed: While you dragging something onto any popup, Fox Splitter now doesn't show the drop position marker.
 * Fixed: Scrolling by mouse wheel was too slow if the window was activated for "sync scroll".


* Fixed: Extra toolbars didn't hidden actually even if it is unchecke…
…d in the section "visible UI in split windows" of the configuration dialog. Now, they are hidden correctly.

* Fixed: After a split window is merged to another window, an extra blank tab was opened unexpectedly.


* Fixed: When this is updated, unexpectedly activated even if this is…
… disabled by user.

* Fixed: Dragover on textboxes is now ignored.
* Fixed: Extra context menu items were not updated correctly.
