openinfocard for Firefox >= 3.0.2

openinfocard project logoAndrew Hodgkinson found a workaround for the latest Firefox hickups. Mozilla removed the non-standard two-parameter eval( statement, scope ) function which was used by the Firefox add-ons that implement identity selection through Information Cards. SUN's java problems that the openinfocard id selector experiences continue to bug us. With Firefox 3 the openinfocard selector is really usable only for managed cards because the java part of the selector is mainly used to issue self-issued tokens. Managed cards are handled by javascript code.
You can download the latest version of the openinfocard selector from the project's repository.
I still recommend to use Firefox 2 until SUN and Mozilla fix the java problems.
