AOL Script serving X-notifier 3.x for Firefox

You can download it here: AOL Script
(Left click and download using the button that will appear at top-right next to the Share button)

Just add it as external script. It will automatically replace the included script with the same name.
(Obviously Reloaded users can do the same, when the included script didn't reach the Reloaded update yet)

It was easy for me: tobwithu did the real difficult job!!!

Hey, just FYI... Tobwithu updated the AOL script so that the account icon would show in the X-N drop-down account list.  We can add a line in the FF config file for AOL icon in old X-N 3.5.xx... or... you might extract the updated AOL script and make it available again?  :)

Will check and update.

For update AOL Scripts.


"Just add it as external script."

I'm sorry how do I do that?

It's for the Firefox version of X-Notifier 3.5.xx.
You just click the Scripts button, and then click the Add button, select the downloaded script, etc.
For Firefox 57 and newer, user version 4.x of X-Notifier... it includes AOL, but does not allow users to add custom scripts.  Update to version 4.2.1 of X-Notifier for the latest AOL script.

I've just installed the script into X-Notifier 3.5.2, which I use because I prefer the one-click open method.

While I can now freely open both my AOL email accounts (previously I could not do this during the downtime, I could only access one account through the extention) it is still not notifying me about received emails.

AOL works for me.   (official) X-Notifier 3.5.23 (with updated scripts) on Firefox 56.0 64bit.
X-Notifier checks for new unread email ...
if there's mail in your inbox that has been read, X-N won't detect it.  
Perhaps you could try clearing cache or cookies.

I did so, as of now it's checking my new-mail style email account, but not my old-mail style account, that one still can't be checked.

It seems to me you don't understand the situation.

AOL is in the process of updating their webserver software. This includes a new login procedure and possibly/probably a new look and feel (the website content). I don't know about that last thing because I just registered an AOL account in order to try help resolve the issue.
So you should realise there are still 2 different AOL webservers active. The old one is still active because the different AOL webserver locations get updated on a different time schedule. Eventually all existing webservers will get updated to the new software.

I am not sure from the somewhat confusing info you provided, but my guess/hope is your "old style" account worked before you updated to the new script. I hope you now understand that is pure logic. When this is the case I can explain how you can make both accounts work until the old one also gets updated. (I forgot about this rare but possible situation for users with multiple accounts)

Actually now neither of my accounts are working again.

This fix is relevant for those using more than one AOL account.
Until the developer of X-notifier agrees with my fix or releases a more complete fix, this can be used.
