This extension allows me to find and replace entire bodies of automatic emails in our training system. Each course code has it's own set of emails and the set can only be accessed on a single long webpage. It was a godsend when we changed our email address and every single instance needed to be updated. I was able to load each course code, click a button, then click save.
This saved me weeks of time! I now also use it when entire email bodies need to be replaced for several courses.
Este complemente está súper, funciona muy bien ,me ahorra mucho tiempo en el trabajo diario reemplazando miles de palabras. Gracias.
Maybe it's time to solicit help from other developers to get the outstanding issues and feature requests fixed / implemented.
Your two requests from your first review are already implemented since a long time ago. In your two next reviews you have complained about "outstanding bugs/issues and missing features", but you don't specify what. You should do that at https://code.google.com/p/foxreplace/issues/list.
I can't stand it when an extension wastes my time by having hidden documentation or no documentation at all. In the "About" it says you can find help in "Tools>FoxReplace>Help" but there is no "Tools" menu item anymore. It then say you can go to the "Help or Firefox menu>Replace>Help" and that does not exist either. When I press Shift+F8 nothing at all happens.
I'm sure the extension works fine but if there's no way to learn how to use it, it's totally worthless.
Sorry, I haven't updated the "About" text since a long time ago. But you can still access the Tools menu by pressing the Alt key. Shift+F8 is used in the newest Firefox versions by the WebIDE, so the shortcut will have to be changed. But assuming you don't have the WebIDE, Shift+F8 is used to manually apply the substitution list(s) to the current page. So, you have to first define the substitutions you want to apply.
Using it for fun, and it works correctly. Just set up the replace list and get it to auto-run on page load.
it seems like a great extension. but i can not get it working, pressing shift+F8, nothing happened
oh, i know how it works! you must set a find&rep rule in options, then selecting the text, pressing shift+f8, all is done by your define find&rep rule. thanks
Здравствуйте, можно ли сделать, чтобы при замене найденного текста проигровался какой-то звук?
Hello, can I do to replacement text was sound?
Hi, I don't understand your question, but you should post it to https://code.google.com/p/foxreplace/issues/list instead, and please try to explain better.
I set it up to replace "Evil Asshole" with "Evil Asshole". It makes watching news clips that reference Evil Asshole so much more bearable.
Great but how can I replace ajax-loaded contents?
Starting with this version (0.16.0) there's a new option that allows you to apply a substitution list periodically. You can try to apply it every second (or the period you consider necessary) and see if it fits your necessity.
FoxReplace is the best and most complete replacing addon that I ever seen. Chrome and Opera doesn't have such a great addon as this one! =D
A question to the developer: when will the 0.16.0 version come out?
Thank you for your review :)
Version 0.16.0 is already submitted and will be available when it is approved by addons.mozilla.org, in a few days.
I use it to replace long and clumsy category names etc. on some sites.
Spasibo very much, Mark RA!
It's interesting to make it work with Firefox UI as well, e.g. replacing "Inspect this element with Firebug" by just "Firebug", etc. Sometimes it's very useful.
Generally, you benefitted many peope, Mark. Wish you to get interest again and resume the development. Have a good day!
How can I import a .txt list to foxreplace?
It used to exist the following:
Babelfox – An online tool for converting Google spreadsheets into FoxReplace lists.
Ok, I never heard about it. Anyway, you can only import XML and JSON. If the txt file is really one of these formats, you can just change the extension to .xml or .json, respectively.
If you have further problems, please open an issue at http://code.google.com/p/foxreplace/issues/list or send me an email, since this place is for reviews.
It saved many works for me. fine.
Thanks for the good addon.
Can be both funny and useful!
Happy new 2014 year!
С новым 2014 годом! (in Russian)
1. Please make it possible to replace the selected text on page.
Сделайте пожалуйста возможность заменять выделенный текст.
2. Please make possibilities: a) transfer rules from one group to another; b) sort the rules alphabetically.
Сделайте пожалуйста возможности: а) переносить правила из одной группы в другую; б) сортировать правила по алфавиту.
P.S. A very nice addition! I process the pages (by pressing a combination of keys Shift + F8) so many rules that appear in the delay of 30-60 seconds.
Очень хорошее дополнение! Я обрабатываю страницы (нажатием сочетания кнопок Shift+F8) настолько большим количеством правил, что появляется задержка в 30-60 секунд.
please make a version for SeaMonkey
Wow, I already had this installed to replace too long navigation elements on certain websites but I was never aware of it's ability to also change the html source.So this extension just became a reliable companion in my web development process along with Firebug, Fiddler and others especially when you have to deal with pages where you can't alter directly the source for testing purposes.
Excellent tool.So simple to use, so powerful, efficient and fast. I have created a substitution table using this tool that would convert Hindi/ Devanagari to Roman-English or to iTRANS. (not translation, just transliteration.) Previously long cryptic programs were needed to achieve the same, and now just a substitution table of foxreplace is achieving the same, that too much faster and efficiently. It came very handy, and is so simple to use, and yet so powerful. It is magic.Keep up the good work.
I wish that you added the "highlight all"
as in the standard search
Great add-on.Using it to auto-replace 2000+ search strings (phone numbers) to show me real names when reviewing my phone bills in browser.The only alternative to this is a Greasemonkey script (Replace text in webpages) that for me (and others) as of July 2013 somehow does not work any more. So I switched to this plugin, which is way more powerful (limit autoreplace to certain domains/sites, etc. etc.
This is a very good addon for me. I usually used to replace lot of words in my wordpress blog posts and editing css of various codes on the fly. Great functionality and very good addon 5 Stars.
The replace option wors as i can edit the lines in the form with the desired updates. However, when i click on "apply" or "save", the updates are not kept so whatever i edit with the add-on is not retained.
If i manually update the form, the changes are being applied.
Could you please help me on this?
Please, create a new issue at https://code.google.com/p/foxreplace/issues/list and I'll try to help you. I haven't understood your explanation, so I don't have any clue right now.
Very usefull addon, Thanks!
