I within a panel and I want to get the current browser URL. Nothing so far works. Here's what I've tested:
Only thing that even returns anything, I get something like
resource://jid0-18z0ptaugyu0arjkaoywztggyzg-at-jetpack/ and then my current panel resource. Obviously this is a scope problem but I don't know how to refer to the actual browser.
I've tried literally everything in the biggest Stack Overflow thread on this: Get current page URL from a firefox sidebar extension. None of them return anything.
If it helps, I am using the Firefox Addon Builder.
// you need to use this service first var windowsService = Components.classes['@mozilla.org/appshell/window-mediator;1'].getService(Components.interfaces.nsIWindowMediator); // window object representing the most recent (active) instance of Firefox var currentWindow = windowsService.getMostRecentWindow('navigator:browser'); // most recent (active) browser object - that's the document frame inside the chrome var browser = currentWindow.getBrowser(); // object containing all the data about an address displayed in the browser var uri = browser.currentURI; // textual representation of the actual full URL displayed in the browser var url = uri.spec;
