Firefox Add-on

We are looking for a freelance developer with experience writing firefox [url removed, login to view] are looking for the development of a firefox sidebar skeleton as most of the application logic will occur in DHTML within a browser embedded in the sidebar. Here are the requirement. * Sidebar with xul browser component embedded * Using a XUL button in the extension be able to toggle the width of the sidebar between a minimized width at for example 100px and maximized at 300px * Whether the sidebar is displayed or not the extension should be listening to browser navigation changes and post a response to a web service * When the extension is open and a user navigates to a different page or switches tab the sidebar should invoke a javascript method embedded within the browser in the sidebar. * A link embedded within the html in the browser in the sidebar should open in the main browser * When the extension is first installed it should be displayed by default and also navigate in the main window to a given one time only url. We have already started on this and have a browser embedded sidebar that can invoke javascript methods in the sidebar page when a main browser window is changed. So I can pass this on to you as a starting point (or you could start from scratch if preferred)

## Deliverables

* Extend what we have to listen to all navigation and tab events whenever the browser is running, regardless of the sidebar state and make post request to a given URL.

* Add button to sidebar to toggle width of extension

* Listen to events that happen within the browser page

embedded in the sidebar and be able to catch these in the extension in order to open main browser tabs etc. * When first installed open extension automatically and open a getting started web page in the main view. (If this is possible- I think thumbstrips does it)
