iGlasses is an application for adjusting web cam settings (brightness, contrast, etc.)
It seems to search for specific video enabled applications, and inserts a menu item to allow its selection, or often just opens a small window whenever such applications are opened. It owrks fine with Firefox, but does not recognize TenFourFox.

Is there a fix? Is there a way to change TenFourFox so that it is named Firefox?

Thanks in advance for any help!

    I am not familiar with this application. You could certainly rename TenFourFox to Firefox.app and see what it does, but if it's looking for particular characteristics of the application, I would need to know what those are and there's no guarantee I could accommodate them.

    Thanks for your reply!

    Info on the latest version of iGlasses, which is NOT compatible with
    PPC is available here:

    Since I'm obviously on a PPC, I obtained a compatible version here:

    I already tried to rename TenFourFox in the Finder, but this did NOT
    solve the problem, probably because it still remains named as
    TenFourFox to OS X, and appears with this name next to the Apple menu.

    iGlasses is NOT a browser plugin. It gets installed in the OS, and
    seems to makes itself available to a specific list of applications
    which includes Firefox, but NOT TenFourFox (which was not even
    available when that version of iGlasses came out.

    I wouldn't have bothered you if iGlasses didn't work fine with
    Firefox, but it does.
