Firefox Addon for a traffic exchange website

Create an addon for Mozilla Firefox to run a "surfbar". This project is for a paid traffic exchange website. All functionality is allready available as as normal dynamic javascript/html website with heavy usage of iframes. The main goal of this project is to convert it to an addon to avoid problems with framebusters. I will provide you the javascript source of the functioning surfbar, so that you do not have do write everything from scratch. Your main job will be focused on converting this functionality to a firefox addon.

The basic functionality of the add-on will be:

1. Ask the user for credentials (username + password)

-> check the credentials by making a POST request

-> save credentials

2. Provide a button for the user to start/stop the plugin in the current tab

3. When running, periodically make a POST request to an URL:

the response will be an xml file containing urls, that should be opened in the

active tab and the time to wait until the next request

4. When running, show a status bar:

some basic informations extracted from the last xml response

The plugin should be aware of the tab in which it is running! I.e. the status bar

should be visible only in the one frame, in which it is running. The other frames should not show

the status bar. Step 3 should open the urls only in the tab, in which it was started.

This is exactly the same behaviour like the Firebug extension.

The addon should display some an info to the user, if there is no connection to the internet

or the xml-url can not be loaded for some reason (e.g. server is down)

5. Provide Firebug-like drop-down menu for the plugin-button with the following functions:

- change status-bar position (top or bottom)

- change user login data

- start / stop running

6. Provide addon-user interface in 3 different languages.

Here i will help you with the actual translation. But will have to implement internationalized

interface in the addon.

7. Recheck user credentials every time when the plugin is started and provide proper feedback to the user,

if the crentials are wrong. (e.g. password changed)

More info available upon request.
