I had to change a file in the xpi to make this work in Firefox 7. I already sent the author a mail with the change, so the plugin should be updated quite soon.
The Plugin works without problems so far.
This works as specified. A cool enhancement would be to use file alteration monitoring (inotify or the equivalent on other OSes) to detect changes to the /etc/hosts file and clear the cache automatically.
I'm sure it's great, but the icon looks terrible!
Nice addon, works as expected.
clear Firefox's internal DNS cache
es bueno pero le falta el icono para la barra miniatura.
"You will need not to restart firefox after changing your hosts file... c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts"
Only if you have opted to embrace the masochism of the DNS Client service in XP (and newer / not better)
The XP varient of this client is far too clingly, requiring far too many "tweaks". Either use a third party caching tool, your own LAN resolver, or find a public resolved faster than whatever OVERLOADED (oversold) resolvers employed by your ISP. This is NOT an endorsement for OpenDNS or other 'free' resolver that wickedly does not return NXDOMAIN.
Do it say. Little, simply and lightweight addon. Usefull. Thanks
