to qualitypush.com: Thanks so much for posting that "extensions.checkCompatibility" work-around. I've now been able to restore my Firefox to its former glory.

Workarounds work, but it's better to have the author update his work... Update Please Jeremy!!!

ah! thank gawd i have my baby back. after installing FF3 i´d "lost" many good plugins, 1 of them was CPT.

i did it this way (thx to those who explained here):

1) uninstall CPT
2) restart FF3
3) type in address field "about:config" (just the letters)
4) answer: "yes I won´t destroy anything"
5) you´ll see a list
6) right click --> new (boolean)
7) type in: "extensions.checkCompatibility"
8) set it to "false"
9) close FF3

10) just install CPT as usual:
--> https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/134
--> "don´t check version"

hope you´ll be as happy as i am!

thx Kevin C. Tofel and James Kendrick (i copied your names with my good old CPT! :)

would be great if a version for ffox3 will be released.
When it is easy as "crj sdin" says, there is maybe no programming work needable to make it run with ffox 3!

Great as it always was Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension works with FF3 if you change the maxVersion from 2.0.0 to 3.0.0 in the install.rdf.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I saw what ervee did with the "install.js" JSscript Script File. I extracted the xpi and opened the .js file with notepad. Just type "b" after the no. 3 where you see this area:
const gVersion = "0.3.3";const gJar

It should read: ="0.3.3b";const gJar

Or if you already know where to look for the extension folder within your profile or from the Mozilla Firefox in the Programs folder. Then all you have to do is open FF, go to the Tools Menu / Add-ons, click on the extension Copy Plain Text to see the registry number. Once you have that you can find the Copy Plain Text's extension folder with the same number. Go there and do the same modification above on the "install.js" file.

Restart, then override FF3 to allow this extension. Concern for doing this is not warranted on this extension. It works and I haven't experience any crashes or problems, not even on all versions of FF2.

Jeremy, make it work in FF3, PLEASE!!!!
For many, this extension is very useful.

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was handy but it's too bad that it hasn't been updated yet. There has been plenty of time to do so as well.

Sorry, but I don't have a clue who ervee is, so I'm not planning on downloading their update AND I too don't recommend forcing FF3 into allowing this extension.

The truth is that this should have been updated by Jeremy sometime ago. Perhaps he's too busy but then a notice here would've been nice.

My Firefox isn't complete without this extension...

excellent but doesn't work with frefox 3

I don't recommend disabling version checking in Firefox itself. I've modified the 0.3.3 version to load in FF3. Download here: [removed]

Firefox 3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This great extension works in FF3. FF just doesn't know it (yet, -1 for not updating it). If you know what you're doing you can force it to be accepted. See for example:

Please update for FF3!

I miss a 'copy as formatted text' CTRL+SHIFT+C shortcut, when CTRL+C is set to 'copy as plain text' in the options

So basic it should be added to every browser Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I happened on this add-on when it first came out and I added it every machine that has Firefox I come upon. Seems like it should be built in.
Works great, I take it for granted until I have to use IE.

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent Add-on, one of the best!!! THANKS!!!

Used Constantly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Pros: Does exactly what it says: copies whatever you have selected (on a web page) while removing all formatting in the process. I use this extension constantly.

Cons: Needs an option to create a user-defined keyboard shortcut. Needs to be updated for FF3.0.

It does work with FF3.0b3 if you use the MR Tech Local Install extension to overwrite 'maxVersion' compatibility testing. You can also use the Nightly Tester Tools extension to overwrite 'maxVersion' compatibility testing.

Thank you Jeremy Gillick!

how about a past-plain-text? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is excellent. Would it also be possible to write something similar, a paste plain text for firefox? (for when you copy text from ms-word, etc?)

perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

does exactly what it's supposed to. makes copying large amounts of text with tables a lot easier..
