After copying the plugins to the components and plugins directory of Firefox and restart, it seems that it has no effect at all. Do I need to configure something before use? The README and the website do not tell any on that.

Are you copying the files to the right locations? *so files go to plugins/ and *xpt files go to components/. If you're using the official Slackware package for Firefox then these directories are under /usr/lib/firefox.

This problem occurs for two reasons that I know of:

1) Using ~ in the path to the gecko sdk (e.g. ./configure --with-gecko-sdk=~/gecko-sdk)
2) Leaving out the = (e.g. ./configure --with-gecko-sdk ../gecko-sdk)

In both cases this allows the configure script to complete successfully but creates loads of errors when you run make. You must make sure that you include the = and don't use ~ in the path to the sdk (both absolute (/home/andy/gecko-sdk) and relative (../gecko-sdk) paths are fine).

Hope this solves your problem.

seems you use (MS Windows)

instead of

which works much better. Just noticed by myself...

(however, check to use the correct version, like 1.6 or 1.7.10)
