This extension has been invaluable to me as a developer. switching between dev and productions versions of the same site is easy just update hosts and flush DNS
E10 has killed firefox as a developers tool. such a sad loss to the development community I am now bound to follow the same tiresome path other developers without this extension were forced to follow
Firefox -5 :(
being able to see the ip address of the site I am browsing has been invaluable for the admin work I do
Did the trick for me! Thanks.
Suggestion: the sentence to "reload changes made on hosts file" makes it unclear what the plugin does. I would either explain what this file is or remove the reference from the test.
Works good! But it doesn't support the modern firefox feature -- multi-process usage to effectively distribute the load.
It does what it's supposed to and it is extremely useful for development!
Very useful addon, works as it should.
Very good addon. But not enough options.
I would like the option to copy the IP-address to the clipboard. And the ability to remap mouse buttons when you click the button on the toolbar.
Anyway, a good addon, thanks for your work :)
PS. I didn't find how to respond to the developer, so I edit the initial review.
OK, I'll try to do that. I'm not sure if Firefox will allow me but I'll give it a try. Thank you for the suggestion.
Works very well.
No ads, no spying, no money-begging. This addon can be used without a worry.
It does just what it says and what I need occasionally (after hosts file updates).
SImple, effective, hope it doesn't track users or add malware.
Just button on the Add-on bar is not enough.
Glad to let you know that the new version has a button for the toolbar as well
In regards to the latest FF update Bug.
I have checked the - Refresh page button and its solved the problem .
The main thing I find annoying is not really the author's fault. Rather it would be nice if the "Find Bar" and the addons bar that this plugin uses could be merged, its just annoying to have only the far right side of the bar used. Maybe have an option in this plugin to add as a button? You'd have to hover to see the IP, but it would make the GUI much cleaner.
The only other item would be if it where possible to directly change the IP used, but my guess is that if that were possible without changing FF core code then it would have been done.
I'll try to release a flush button, there is other suggestions about that.
About your second suggestion, let me know if my other plugin (Change Hosts) do the job.
works fine with aurora 16.0a2
Great extension, thanks
Something I'd really love to see implemented is an option to copy the site IP address to the clipboard. That'd be handy!
Great add-on. Thanks!
Nice work - performs great! Now just an a toolbar icon we can use to flush the DNS please :)
Thank you for the suggestion, I`ll release it sooner as possible.
To make this addon compatible to firefox 4.X just run this commands on linux
unzip dns_flusher-2.0.5-fx.xpi -d dns_flusher-new
sed -i 's/maxVersion>.*5.*cd dns_flusher-new/
zip -r ../dns_flusher-2.0.5-fx4.xpi *
The add-on was updated to be compatible to 4.0b8pre.
If you face any problem, please, let me know.
