First of all: THANK YOU! Yes, using plain desktop Firefox 29(Nightly) I
have it working!!! Very excited. So, I am able to wish you a Merry
Christmas in style

my sermon on this from the last Sunday at
That means that 90% of the hard work (i.e., reading compressed Sword
modules) is done. Congratulations!

Now, the bad news :(

When I opened your page in FxOS-simulator
... contains FxOS 1.1), I got exactly nothing ... when clicking that [+]
button I get absolutely no response whatsoever ...

When I open your page in my real Firefox OS phone (Geeksphone Peak with
FxOS 1.1hd ... not sure what's the difference from the pure Mozilla
Foundation 1.1 image, but I know they have backported plenty of patches
to it to make it more stable) or in Firefox App-Manager
with https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/labs/fxos-simulator/
Firefox OS 1.2 Simulator), so when I open the page in either of these, I
do a little bit better. I can open the Module Manager and I get [object
progressbar] visible. See

And the last piece of bad news. In the desktop Firefox your app works
with ESV, but I couldn't make it to work with either CzeBKR or CzeCSP
(two Czech Bibles I tried).

It is hard to debug these problems if I don't have a manifest. If you
put your app manifest
(https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Apps/Developing/Manifest) somewhere
on the web, I could load the app into App-Simulator and start to find
out what's going on with the debugger.

Thank you very very much for your hard work!
