ESPN NFL Scores Changed again

ESPN changed the way they do football scores again. Hopefully I will have the change done soon and approved before the regular season. I'm gonna have to look for another source I think.

Sportsfox 1.15

I have submitted Sportsfox 1.15 that fixes all the problems I am aware of. I submitted it back on April 18th. Today is May 21st. I don't know what the hold up is. It usually doesn't take anywhere this long.

View Current Game Details

When you click a game in the status bar, you should be able to see the game information or rather the game summary after the game is finished. You used to be able to do this, but after the ESPN format change, I haven't fixed it just yet. This is next up on my plate.

The current version is 1.15 when the folks at Mozilla get around to approving it. I submitted it back on the 18th. Today is the 25th. I'm just sayin..

sportsFox Screenshots

I did some code cleanup, have the colors working. We should be just about ready for the latest version of sportsFox. I have been testing on FF 3.0.8 and Minefield and everything has been looking good. I'm no longer going to be worrying about any versions lower than 3 because you should upgrade anyway. :-)

sportsFox Being Updated

I have started cleaning up the code a little to get it up to "code" to be approved. It actually isn't as much of a re-write when I actually got into it. I did combine 3 javascript files into one though, because I couldn't figure out how to get them all to work with the new coding standards/methodology.

Basically, if I have 3 javascript files and I want all of them to belong to the same "package", how do I do that? Because if I code each of them the same way, the initial declaration in one package seems to blow away the declaration of another. And the same with the "pub"lic vars. I will have to see if there is some forum discussing this. I'm sure there is.

The code is actually kind of cool for javascript. Now if there was only a javascript IDE with Intellisense. That would be awesome!

The basic code that I am using  Mark Ziesemer came up with.  It basically lets me "wrap up" all of my "loose" javascript variables into a namespace and then access just the ones I make public from the XUL Chrome.  It's pretty cool.  Here is Mark's example:

if(!com) var com={};
if(!com.ziesemer) com.ziesemer={};

com.ziesemer.myPackage = function(){
var pub = {}; = "visitor";
pub.greeting = "hello " +;
pub.alertHello = function(){
return pub;


of couse com.ziesemer belongs to Mark, so your should be "com.yourname" or whatever..

Add Experimental Addons

I see that we can now install "experimental" addons in Firefox. So you can actually install the latest version of SportsFox before it's "approved". Click the "see all versions" button on the first screen, and then the latest version will be displayed.
