When i found this i almost shouted "heureka!".
Unforunately it doesn't install on latest Firefox/OSX. cause: "not valid install package"
I don't have OSX... So I can't do tests with it. Maybe it's only a matter of changing something with the RDF file.. you're welcome to check it out and let me know. I have no idea on how supporting for non-win OS works. sorry...
Why is my link here to the file on AMO, pops up the download window, rather than the install window? Extenal links to AMO xpi files used to open the xpi install win with no problem.
Shows an install window for me.
My Firefox Add-Ons Collection: Firefox Essentials
First of all: Great Extension.
And now the bugs:
1) When switching to 'Plain Text' and then back to 'Rich Formatting' the RTL and LTR buttons do not reappear.
2) Also if you click the 'Compose Mail' link again when you are already in the compose mail screen the RTL and LTR buttons disappear.
Thanks again for a well needed extension.
Many, many thanks!
It's "holpering" a bit, but it works.
I don't know why this feature is not enabled by default, within Gmail
But this is why you are here, Thanks a lot!!
1. Any plans to support FF 2?
2. Any plans to fix the problems with the current release (0.1)?
Tested On: Firefox 2.0 RC1
Compatibility: Firefox 1.5 - 2.0.0.*
<a href="http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/extensions/gmail_rtl/gmail_rtl-0.1.1-fx.xpi">Install v0.1.1</a>
Added FF 2.0 compatibility.
Sorry, no changes in functionality yet.
Could the extension be converted into a Greasemonkey script?
I have been trying to make the Greasemonkey conversion myself, but have, so far, been unsuccessful. I'd prefer to have a script whenever an extension is really not necessary. If anyone more knowledgeable could help in any way, it would be most appreciated.
Thank you & Todah
