The Firefox extension for DYMO SDK has been updated to support Firefox 15. 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. One of our customers is reporting a problem with FF 15 on W7.. getting this message “DLS SDK 1.4.11.0 add on is not compatible w/this version and was auto-disabled” Customer is NOT using the FF extension, they are using the Dymo Label Framework API/Javascript. Anyone reporting issues like this?

    • DLS SDK 1.4.11.0 add on is the DYMO SDK Extension for Firefox 11. Either you have to install DYMO SDK Extension for Firefox 15 (DLS SDK 1.4.15.0) or use the DYMO Label Framework.

  2. We are using the DYMO Label Framework. Should not have to install the SDK Extension and we didn’t. We are getting that error, using the Label Framework..

  3. I found a bug in Dymo Label Maker 8.x when sharing Address Book files from OS X to Win7. Specifically with the version number in the XML. See https://www.dropbox.com/s/hqgs3wd63fww0ow/20120915%20Dymo%20Label%20Maker%20Bug%20Report.pdf

    If there is a better way to bring this to a developer’s attention please let me know.

  4. Is Javascript SDK has relation with Printer?
    For example: I have a web page use javascript sdk, Can I print label with both “Dymo labelwriter 400 Turbo” and “Dymo labelwriter 450 Turbo”?
    Thanks.
