Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

So I am using RBTray, but it is not working on Firefox and Opera. Right Click does not minimize these browsers to tray.

PAFuser on 2021-09-19 10:09

Works fine on Firefox if Title Bar visible, if not use Shift-Right-Clicking on Tab Bar (mine in on top) or Windows-Alt-Down. Also works with Thunderbird. Do not use Opera, but one of the three methods in description seems to work on every program I use, so give it a try.

PAFuser on 2022-03-21 09:42

All 3 methods work on Firefox without Title Bar in 4.14 version. Great app.
