Talk about add-ons and extension development.
It's even better now, with a dedicated tab instead of a secondary dialog box. Cheers!
Edit: Aye the icon is nice but a tad too dark (for my crappy monitor only perhaps) I had to increase brightness by a fair amount in order to figure out what it was =)

Right, almost finished now I think. I have done a newer version but I'm not putting it on the main page yet because I don't know how it will act on non-windows machine. Basically I've added an extra option to it so I've had to play to increase the size of the options dialog, hopefully this doesnt screw things up:
If anyone using a non-windows OS could give this a shot and let me know if it works out ok then Ill put it up properly.
Also do people like the options where they are or would it make more sense to put them into an extra pane in the advanced tab?
I've taken a look into this, and to be honest I'm unlikely to do it since it looks like it would be a real pain in the neck to do. Possibly this is because I'm very new to this extensions business so maybe I don't know some of the tricks.
Also I would have to overlay what is already an overlay (to do both that or put the options onto the advanced tab), I'm not sure whether thats possible or not but when I jsut tried it I managed to crash Firefox everytime.
So I think right now the options will have to stay where they are.
The new 0.7 version seems to be working fine on Mac OS X.
Thanks powerbook, thats good enough for me
In regard to FF:
I'm using the very latest Beast-Tinderbox (timestamp: firefox.exe: 27.02.05 02:07) -> Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050227 Firefox/1.0+
In regard to the (GREAT!) extension (already at version 0.7):
The only "problem" is that I couldn't install it directly from the "Install" link on the page although I had "Allow web sites to install software" activated. Instead, the "Download" dialogue opened, and I downloaded the .xpi and installed it by dragging it on to FF.
It might have something to do with another option that I have (or don't have) selected somewhere, but I'll have to fool around with it for awhile.
As an English teacher who's a real FF fan but really nothing but a computer wannabe, I am happy to say for the record that I stand in awe of all the people who work so hard to make FF a great browser. My thanks to "Dave?" for this cool extension.
Although every day is Judgment Day, I nonetheless feel like a room without a roof.
FF v1.0.1 is the latest stable release of Firefox. Many of us are testing the so-called nightlies that contain new features and works in progress that will appear in FF v1.1. One of those new features is a redesigned options dialog.
Nightlies can give you a look at whats coming up in FF, but they also generally contain lots of bugs and they aren't for the faint of heart.
Yeah I just tested it and that does appear to be the case. Some oddity on my website, I'll take a look into it later this afternoon. Cheers for letting me know.
Always nice to receive praise
I think I've sorted that, though I found I needed to clear my cache before FF would notice the change.
