The Firefox extension for DYMO SDK has been updated to support Firefox 12. The extension is available here. The FAQ article is here.

Please note that the Firefox extension is deprecated. No new development will be done for the extension. For new projects please use the Javascript library from the DYMO Label Framework. We encourage developers to switch to the new API even for current projects. Here are some benefits the new DYMO Label Framework API provides in comparison to the extension:

  • DYMO Label Framework API provides a cross-browser and cross-platform pure Javascript API. The same API supports all major browsers on Windows and Mac. The Firefox extension API can be used only in Firefox on Windows.
  • All necessary Framework installation is done by the DYMO Label software installer. By contrast the Firefox extension must be downloaded by customers separately and installed manually.
  • DYMO Label Framework supports and will support all the DYMO printers. New printers will not be supported by the extension.

The auto-update functionality isn’t included in this version. We will add it later.

  1. It would be really nice if you put up at least a contact form or something to write personally.

    I have a question regarding printing on tapes. Is it possible to print without default margins on both sides on tape (which is about 0.5cm)? Is there a hidden option somewhere in DYMO Label or do I have to dig myself in shell or compiling new drivers?

    Best regards,
    Koyot

  2. Is there any Dymo forum? Or anybody is interested in that?

  3. Please fix Mac Dymo drivers, because I can’t print to continuous paper (automatic or fixed length), because it is prints out 50cm of the paper. Under Windows it is OK, I set fixed length and my Dymo LabelWriter 450 prints fine.

    Matt.

    • You can’t remove the leader (margin at the beginning) since this is a physical constant (distance between the print head and the cutter). The minimum tape length defines the minimum tape length in order to grab the output without having to open the printer.

      There isn’t a hidden option to change the default margins. You can always print multiple labels at once and cut them afterwards yourself. You might look into the LabelWriter/LabelManager SDK for Linux (http://sites.dymo.com/DeveloperProgram/Pages/LW_SDK_Linux.aspx ) since it comes with the source code for the DYMO printer drivers. The margins are defined in the corresponding .ppd file.
