Firefox 3 Release Tomorrow

Tomorrow, June 17th, is the long-awaited release of Firefox 3.  I have been using version 3 for quite a while now, and I've been using it at work since the Developer Tools were made compatible. It vastly improves both its performance and memory footprint over version 2, so the biggest complaints people have had about Firefox should be resolved.

Also, for you Opera users, 9.5 is out as well.

Web Developer Tools now support Firefox 3.0

For those of you like me that use Chris Pederick's Web Developer Tools on the regular, you should be happy to know that 1.1.5 is out, and supports Firefox 3.0.  This makes me happy, as I have migrated to 3.0 everywhere except on my work machine, becuase I was waiting on support for a few extensions. 

Apparantly I was a bit behind the power curve on this one,  as he released it a couple weeks ago.

Asp:LinkButton as an Asp:Panel's Default Button in FireFox

The asp:LinkButton doesn’t work as a panel's DefaultButton in FireFox

Here’s a link explaining the issue:

I’ve written a custom control similar to the one in the article (Arke:LinkButton). Which fixes the FireFox issue.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Text;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
namespace Arke.Web.UI.WebControls
[ToolboxData("<{0}:LinkButton runat=server></{0}:LinkButton>")]
public class LinkButton : System.Web.UI.WebControls.LinkButton
protected override void OnLoad(System.EventArgs e)
Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(GetType(), "addClickFunctionScript", _addClickFunctionScript, true);
string script = String.Format(_addClickScript, ClientID);
Page.ClientScript.RegisterStartupScript(GetType(), "click_" + ClientID, script, true);
private const string _addClickScript = "addClickFunction('{0}');";
private const string _addClickFunctionScript =
@"  function addClickFunction(id) {{
var b = document.getElementById(id);
if (b && typeof( == 'undefined') = function() {{
var result = true; if (b.onclick) result = b.onclick();
if (typeof(result) == 'undefined' || result) {{ eval(b.href); }}

To use this control...

  1. Add "using Arke.Web.UI.WebControls;" to your code behind.
  2. Register the assembly in the Asp.NET page "<%@ Register Assembly="Arke.Web" Namespace="Arke.Web.UI.WebControls" TagPrefix="Arke" %>"
  3. Add the control (or change your asp:LinkButtons to Arke:LinkButtons) "<Arke:LinkButton ID="ArkeLoginButton" Text="log in" runat="server" CssClass="login_button" />"
