There is a thread in OSM-talk
concerning the fact that the JOSM WMS pluging does not work with Firefox 3.
The issue has also been raised in TRAC in the following ticket
This is to move the discussion to this list as there may be people
better able to address this issue then myself or those on the OSM-talk list.
The problem is a result of the mozilla bug report
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=379015 where the feature
that JOSM uses in Firefox to dump Yahoo images has been removed in
Firefox 3 as it "was not being used" and I have checked the Firefox 3
source code and it has indeed been removed.
In the mozilla bug report Andrzej Zaborowski asked what JOSM should be
using and Robert O'Callahan responded
> Use an embedding tool like gnome-web-photo.
> Or write a Firefox extension or a .xul app (launched using -chrome)
> pages, snapshots them using canvas.drawWindow, and uses toDataURL to
> PNG image
Francisco R. Santos frsantos at gmail.com indicated on OSm-talk
> I have a very basic prototype using a swing browser component
> (the Cobra library) inside JOSM displaying an openlayers frame,
> but didn't have time to continue it.
> If anyone is interested to continue it,
> I can give the sources or commit it to SVN.
