Links Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The tool is very useful, but I am looking for a way to generate a link from id's in the HTML page. Is there a way to do this or is the interpretation already done when the text is substituted?

Thanks.

Re: Links

I don't understand what you mean. If what you want is to convert a word or a phrase to a link, you will be able to do it with the next version (0.9.0), which I will upload this weekend, and includes HTML substitutions. If you mean converting a text inside a tag with an id attribute (e.g. bar) to a link, then it should also be possible with v0.9.0 using regular expressions.

Great add-on, works wonderfully.

I noticed that it replaces text after been processed by the browser. Is it possible to replace before the text is displayed by the browser? it may be very useful in changing styles and javescripts.

Can't replace before the page is shown, but...

The replacements are done when the load event is fired, and Firefox processes HTML as it arrives, not waiting for the whole page to have loaded. So, I don't think is possible to do the replacements before the text is displayed (but I'm not sure).

But you could still change styles and scripts after the load (if it was implemented), although I don't know what would happen with the script associated with the load event, I don't know if it would be executed before or after the substitutions.

Anyway, if you want to change styles and scripts you could try GreaseMonkey, which will let you do heavier changes to a page.

Great! I modded it to support sourcecode, because I did not want to wait.
For professionals:
Copy one of the "replace loops",
use
valueNodesXpath = "/html/body";
and
valueNode.innerHTML = group.replace(valueNode.innerHTML);
close to the end of the foxreplace.js.

Works Wonderfully... possible features Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm an Electrical Engineer and this works great for what I do. When I'm doing component searches, sometimes I want to change a package size (eg 8-SOIC) to its area in mm2 so that I can compare sizes. Works fantastic.

One added feature is to add a toggle. Like hitting F2 to replace, then something like CTRL-F2 to un-replace. (Once I find the smallest package size, I want to see what that package is called).

Great work!

Would be perfect if it could handle HTML code Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It looked exactly what I was searching for, a simple and easy to set up filter to get rid of those annoying Google ads embedded in too many articles and forums.

But it took me a lot of trying out and finally reading the changelog file in source depository until I realized that it only works on visible text. That really is a pity for such a good tool with built in RegExp functionality and on load filtering.

I hope there will soon be an option available to apply filters on complete page code when needed.

Re: Would be perfect if it could handle HTML code

Hello, the purpose of this extension is to replace strings of text. To do this I find text nodes in the DOM tree and apply the substitutions on every one of them (except for the text of scripts, css, etc.). So, I don't do the substitutions on the source code but on the DOM tree.

To "handle HTML code" would mean modifying the DOM tree, which is outside the scope of this extension, so I don't have plans to implement it. Sorry.

want to resize the width of option window. pls help.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.2). 

Option window now less wide

I suppose you want to resize it because it's too wide. With the last update it's a little less wide, and I hope it's enough. I can't make the options window resizable because it depends on the system: it's resizable on GNU/Linux but unresizable on Windows.

It is awesome. And it will be extraordinary if you can make the replacement site-specific and allow user to group rules based on which site they are applied to - this function will make this add-on an extremely powerful tool for removing advertisement etc.. similar functions have been made available on a very popular browser called "maxthon".

'\n' not working Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I works great for me .... except for the '\n' and '\r' , they simply don't work .....

Would also be nice to have a "tab" option, to be able to enter forms.

Very good add-on! I really need it.

But, "Auto-replace on page load" option does not work! :(
I tried to check and uncheck this. I restarted Firefox after changing this option. No results. (Filters set up correclty - when I press F2, text replaces correctly).

Firefox version: 2.0.0.14

Re: Strange

In fact, the other day I fixed a little bug that might be the cause of this. It appeared if the FoxReplace toolbar icon wasn't on the toolbar, but now this is fixed. Can you try with the latest version to see if it works now?

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Running this on 5 machines. 3 out of 5 are OK but the last two F2 won't work and neither will shift F2. The menu doesn't even list the shortcut and I have been unable to figure out what is disabling it. My firefox is /2.0.0.12, the one of the disabled ones is the same, the other disabled one is /2.0.0.14
