Hiding the CCK

In previous versions of the CCK, I provided the ability to hide and or/lock the CCK that is generated. Locking prevents the user from uninstalling the add-on, but it is rather useless since the user can still disable it. Hiding preventing the user from disabling or uninstalling.

Unfortunately Mozilla removed the ability for an add-on to hide itself in Firefox 3.6.

Luckily working around this is very easy and will be included in the next version of the CCK Wizard. In order to make this work, I’m going to provide one option that hides the add-on. Lock and hide will no longer be separate. This seems rather logical since the lock option is pretty useless by itself.

Note that none of these options work unless the add-on is installed in the same directory where the Firefox executable is located.
