Default Integrate Firefox webbrowser for MediaPortal

Integrate Firefox webbrowser into MediaPortal ver 1.4



Code:
Features:
- Start Firefox 3 from MediaPortal home menu in full screen mode (F11)
- Operate in Firefox with your remote controller as in MediaPortal
- Adjust Firefox zoom level with your remote controller
- Get full mouse control inside Firefox with your remote controller
- Enter text inside Firefox like SMS typing on your mobile phone

Installation instructions:
1) Firefox (Version 3) and MediaPortal have to be installed in their default directories
2) Copy FirefoxIntegrator.exe and FirefoxIntegrator.dll 
from \plugins\windows\ to C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows\
3) If you use Blue3, Blue3wide, Monochrome or Indigo Skin 
copy skin\...\Media\hover_FirefoxIntegrator.png to C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\...\Media\
4) Download and install MultiShortcut plugin
5) Run DLLFix.exe in C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows\
6) Start MediaPortal Configuration
7) Select "Plugins" - "FirefoxIntegrator" - "Config"
8) Fill out following fields (see \doc\FirefoxIntegrator_MultiShortcutConfig.jpg) 
ButtonCaption "Webbrowser" (or alternative text)
Picture "hover_FirefoxIntegrator.png" (or alternative picture; take a look in your \skin\...\Media\ directory)
Exefile "C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows\FirefoxInt egrator.exe"
Optional you are able to add some Firefox command line arguments, 
e.g. with the argument "www.team-mediaportal.com" Firefox will open the MediaPortal homepage.
9) Select "Save" and close MediaPortal Configurator with "OK"

*) Soundgraph iMon users: Add "firefox" into iMON Manager to your programs and 
import the same MediaPortal.imo file which you use for MediaPortal!
If you use WinXP maybe it is necessary to change FirefoxIntegrator - MultiShortcut Konfiguration - "Hide MP While Executing"
from "False" to "True" if iMon Manager is not able to detect that Firefox is the most foreground window!

Update instructions:
Copy FirefoxIntegrator.exe from \plugins\windows\ to C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows\

Tip:
You can create multiple FirefoxIntegrator's by making copies of FirefoxIntegrator.exe and FirefoxIntegrator.dll,
for example:
FirefoxIntegrator1.exe FirefoxIntegrator1.dll
FirefoxIntegrator2.exe FirefoxIntegrator2.dll
FirefoxIntegrator3.exe FirefoxIntegrator3.dll
After running DLLFix.exe every FirefoxIntegrator shortcut can be configured individual,
for example:
FirefoxIntegrator1: Exefile "FirefoxIntegrator1.exe", ButtonCaption "Google News", Arguments "news.google.com"
FirefoxIntegrator2: Exefile "FirefoxIntegrator2.exe", ButtonCaption "TV Program", Arguments "www.tvinfo.de"
FirefoxIntegrator3: Exefile "FirefoxIntegrator3.exe", ButtonCaption "Ebay", Arguments "www.ebay.com"

Remarks:
This is not a classical plugin, it is a tool which run your "normal" installed Firefox out of MediaPortal,
translate your remote controller commands to Firefox hotkeys, emulate full mouse control with
your remote controller and give you SMS like text input without a need of a keyboard.
This tool was created with AutoHotkey, the source file is included.
Actual version tested with:
- MediaPortal 1.0.1
- Firefox 3.0.10
- MultiShortcut Plugin 1.4
- Skins Blue3wide, Blue3wide Retro, Monochrome and Indigo
- iMon VFD remote receiver (MCE mode)

Control keys:
Standard keys:
[1],[2],[3],[4],[6],[7],[8],[9] ...Mouse cursor move to all directions
[5] ...Mouse click left
[0] ...Mouse click right
[F5] (Rewind) ...Firefox zoom out
