  1. nsIPrompt doesn’t really have a lot to say since it’s basically a forwarder for nsIPromptService, so I improved the documentation for the latter page too. By the way, the example for nsIPromptService::confirmEx is bad because it doesn’t assign the “Cancel” option to button 1, which is where people would expect it to be. I would have corrected it but it has a picture and I’m not sure how to update that.

  2. Is there a document on using the right templates and styles? I’ve probably got this section wrong somewhere:


  3. Neil:

    https://developer.mozilla.org/Project:en/Custom_Templates provides information on templates and how to use them. I updated the readStringValue() material for you.

    Neil: Thanks for cleaning that up. Updating a pic just means making the new picture and attaching it to the page using the File manager section at the bottom. I’ll try to take a look.
