hi ppl... your feedback will be greatly appreciated. :-|
no more interest in the extension?
the extension has up to 2000 downloads a week and more than 12000 active daily users. it looks like ppl still keep using and download it. so what happened? where are you the active users?

cool tool.
does not work if the link text has movie name as
a substring. for example, i tried this for http://joox.net
movie links. the movie names also have year part of
it. the snippet is not show in this case.

if possible, also supports for "selected text" in the
web page instead of just "links". now an user can
select a text (which could be a movie name) and
press some special key "Ctrl + M", he will be shown
a snippet if there is a movie/actor of that name.
does that make sense to you ?

Hello

I'm using version 0.44 and I have this problem that only the cover image or headshot is being shown when a hover over a link, no additional information. Everything is enabled in the preferences. I'm running on the new FF 3.0RC2, but the issue was the same under 2.5 (and with the earlier version of IMDB Preview). I'm running FF on Mac OS X 10.5.3

Can you help?

When it works, this is one of my favorite extensions. Thanks for your work :)

The IMDB extension on Firefox is not working for past 18 days or so. Whenever I hover over an IMDb link, all I get is the actor's or the movies poster, not the complete data.
I use Firefox v 2.0.0.14 and IMDb Preview 0.4.4. I upgraded to firefox 3. Still its not workin.

These are the screenshots of the problem I reported earlier.

As you can see only the picture/poster is showing up. The complete info i.e. Bios/Ratings/Cast is not showing up.

Something about the first shot indeed looks strange.
Try clicking the poster (in the preview). Maybe you toggled the info off?

Great add-on!!!
I have a suggestion. Can it be modified to work with "deep links" too?

Examples:
Normal title link (works) / deep link (doesn't work)
Normal name link (works) / deep link (doesn't work)

If you mean that the deep links will preview the main movie page, then yeah, it sounds simple enough. When did you encountered cases with deep links?

If you're referring to the second rectangle, it was added by the user. (See this pic.)

Thanks! didn't notice the user's comment. I'm sure now that it's what I thought - the info is just toggled off.

I clicked on the poster and it started working again!

Thank you very much!

This is the coolest add-on for Firefox

thanks a batch for this extension... took a while 'til i found out it even
works with links to imdb's movies on other pages, which makes it even
more useful ^ ^

i'd like to deposit a humble request for adding the director to the movie
preview... wonder why it's not there in the first place

regards, [icarus]
