Check the offical page for details how this puppy works.

Sample installations:
  • <a href='http://dingetje.homeip.net/ffcounter/' target='_blank'>http://dingetje.homeip.net/ffcounter/</a> (FREESCO 0.2.7 with Apache 1.3.27)</li>
  • <a href='http://kameleon.homeip.net/ffcounter/' target='_blank'>http://kameleon.homeip.net/ffcounter/</a> (FREESCO 0.3.2 with thttpd+)</li>
This package is in the category useless , but I like the techniques behind it, and I like Firefox, hence this package.

Enjoy! B)

If your page keeps displaying:

<span style='font-size:22pt;line-height:100%'>Loading...</span>

then make sure you have a PHP enabled web server.

On my box the 'Last Time' value was off by an hour, so I suspect there maybe an issue with time zones (FREESCO doesn't support time zone out of the box). Other than that the counter seems to be quite portable.

After the recent "Spread Firefox" site update, some of you may have noticed the counter stopped working. Here's the fix:

In the script /www/ffcounter/mirror.php change the code to look like this:

Code: Select all
<?php

#$host = "www.spreadfirefox.com";
#$path = "/download_counter.php?ff=1";

$host = "feeds.spreadfirefox.com";
$path = "/downloads/firefox.xml?ff=1";


save the changes and you'll find the counter is working again.
