Thanks BabelZillians ;)
Note to mac users: The 'ok' button on the options page is greyed out meaning you cannot add new options. I will try and fix this for the next release.
In the meantime, you will be able to work around it by changing a setting on firefox's 'about:config' page. If you type 'browser.preferences.instantApply' into the filter, and change the value to false, you will then find the 'ok' button appears correctly on the options.
