Echofon shamefully drops Firefox for Linux

Echofon has officially announced it is dropping support for Custom build Firefox, so it will no longer work with “minor” platforms. How dare you Echofon!?  This is such short sightedness.

Apparently the previous version (1.9.6.4) of the Echofon plugin to Firefox still works, but I would appreciate suggestions for a different Firefox plugin. I would be happy to ditch Echophon alltogether, it was a good product untill the developers killed it for me.

If you get the error –  Echofon does not support this platform or custom build Firefox. (Can’t get OAuth signer.) / Cc[‘@naan.net/twitterfox-sign;1’] is undefined (Fx version 3.6.8 / ABI x86-gcc3) – according to the Echofon developers you are using a minor platform, and that includes 64bit build on Mac and Windows..

  1. I have been trying out Chromium for a while, but would like to go back to Firefox. (even when Chromium is faster than Firefox, I feel less ‘in control’ with Chromium — it’s so much easier to tweak settings in Firefox). However, for the moment the Echofon issue is a reason to stick with Chromium a bit longer as their extension Chromed Bird works fine.

    Anybody knows a good replacement for Echofon on Firefox?

  2. PS I use Firefox on an archlinux platform: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.9) Gecko/20100908 Firefox/3.6.9

    And I get the following error from Echofon:
    Echofon does not support this platform or custom build Firefox. (Can’t get OAuth signer.) / Cc[‘@naan.net/twitterfox-sign;1’] is undefined (Fx version 3.6.9 / ABI x86_64-gcc3)

  3. Thanks for your post. Reverting back to previous version of Echofon worked for me. Thanks again.
