This was awesome for Windows, but just one question. You say it's available for Linux, but I get the text saying 'x addon is not available for Linux'

Is this just because it isn't available for Ubuntu/Debian?

Brilliant! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent piece of kit. Makes life much easier.
Only ever had one problem, and that turned out to be my fault for installing the windows version on a Mac (lol)
Superb addon that means that I can check what's valid without having to trek to the W3c website

Good job Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This validator gives quite accurate results as W3C one. I really like it, especially because it doesn't rely on 3rd party applications or servers (no upload required). Keep up the good work.

the extension now crashes Firefox using gmail Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a new issue, because google mail just changed something (only in the English version for now). If you are using gmail (set to English) and the extension is enabled, you click on "Sent mail" and Firefox crashes completely under Windows that is.
Otherwise I like the extension.

Update Breaks on PPC Macs Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I\'ve been using an earlier version of this and have absolutely loved it! But yesterday my updater said there was an update available, and I clicked yes. \r\n\r\nBig mistake. The update does not work with PPC Macs. I had to uninstall it. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the previous installer?
I'm giving this a five -- the old version was a 9, but the update doesn't work on my machine.

Add on bug

There is no PPC version in addons.mozilla.org. This is a bug of this site. See here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=404160

Thanks.

Ps: This is not fair to put a 5 if the issue is not created by the extension but this website ! :-)

Wonderfull Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wonderfull, it is the same program used in this extension and real w3c online validator !

OK ish I suppose Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Firstly, the description above is confused to say the least....
"available on Windows only"
"platforms supported, OS X"
"Just a reminder, this is NOT available on mac OSX"

.....make up your mind mate ;)
Seriously though, this simply means you have to go to the website to install it if you're not a windows user, but then the issue arises that it will NEVER auto-update via the firefox interface.

Secondly, this app has a PPC version, but one that hasn't been updated FOR 3 YEARS. I'm forced to use version 0.7.9.5.

Maybe this is why this validator seems to miss more errors than MOST other firefox add-ons available?
It also has an issue with iFrames that other validators don't have.
Finally, W3C online is much more comprehensive (leading me to believe that all this needs is an up-to-date PPC build or a OS X UB build to bring it back up to spec?).

Either way, currently "Total Validator" is better at detecting issues (and conforms to W3C properly), whereas this one has the better GUI and doesn't send the html data to another site.

overall I'd give it 5/10 as it stands.

It is freeware

Hi there,

If you want a PPC version of the 0.841 validator, a Mac OSX PPC user will have to compile it.

There are compilation instructions here:

http://users.skynet.be/mgueury/mozilla/compile.html

Unhappily, all my Mac buddy are on Intel now and are not interested in compiling a PPC version.

Finds errors W3C misses Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is incredible. At first I thought it was not working right on pages that had been checked with W3C. But then I realized it was finding errors that W3C missed! Thanks guys.

Linux Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have been using this for quite a while and I am really fond of it. Is there any chance the latest version (which supports SGML testing and therefore XHTML/Strict) will be available for Linux?

Right now I have to switch to a windows PC for my final testing - would be nice to do that from my development PC.

Thanks for a great tool!

A God-send! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I might be the pickiest person I know when it comes to HTML validation. I have been willing to pay $150 for the CSE HTML Validator in the past because it would catch nesting errors that other validators would miss (it's still great for batch validations). But I don't need that any more - I have something better - the Firefox Html Validator.

It's so darn convenient that I can test my site and just glance at the little icon at the bottom of each page to look for HTML errors. They have made great strides forward in the past few months and now I rely on it for everything. Except for batch validations, this is going to put every other validator out of business.

The suggestions for how to fix errors are often very insightful and relevant. It teaches you how to write good HTML as you use it.

And speaking of using it, that's my only complaint. Now that it's so easy to write valid HTML, why doesn't everyone do it? There is no longer any excuse!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for creating this!

the best offline validator ever :D Rated 5 out of 5 stars

as a junior web-developer i'm using this tool(along with the http://validator.w3.org/ online validator) to validate my pages. it works great.

still i'd like to suggest some improvements though, because my page validates at http://validator.w3.org/, but this validator gives a warning:
"Warning: escaping malformed URI reference" which refers to any javascript links. e.g: Search

anyway, great tool and i advice any web developer to use it!

View source speed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi Timki, the view source speed problem is only happening when the page is very very big. To have an immediate answer, remove the "line highlighting" and the "line numbers" in options.

Too slow Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Very good extension, extremely useful for web developers, except for one major problem which is that it runs faaaar too slow. The 'view source' window takes absolutely ages to come up. Needs work.

Nice but limited validator for the Web developer Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's a useful extension but it lacks XHTML strict validation for example, instead you have to manually use the W3C online validation tool. But the extension is great to quickly check for HTML/CSS websites or accessibility issues.
