Is this going to be fixed? I am using "Simple URL Extender", but it needs me to right click the link to extend.
Please remove from the list of certified extensions
Contrary to what user Prozaque is asserting below, it does work perfectly fine. I was unsatisfied with the original "Long URL Please" because it doesn't support Bitly's j.mp shortcuts. Of course you may not notice any difference when you're just testing it with the URL shorteners that are already supported by the original add-on. Even in this case though it works just as well as the original one.
Duplicate extension that does nothing. Someone should really start removing all these POCs
I used to use a couple bookmarklets to expand short urls but they stopped working. Then I found this addon and it works way better!
This fixed my issue with the original add-on. Thanks.
--Like a wilted flaccid flower, this addon did NOTHING in my Ffox 3.5.2
--I installed, restarted, opened Addons panel . . . no "Preferences" button for this addon.
--Right-clicked on a Bit.ly link in Twitter . . . nothing. No "LongURLPleaseMod" menu item anywhere.
--10 minutes later: I went to Addons panel again . . . hey! "Long URL Please Mod 0.5.1" had popped a "Preferences" button.
--"Lengthen short urls when every page loads" is TICKED. . . . Reloaded Twitter page . . . Bit.ly links still shortened . . . right-clicked on link == nothing; no "Long URL Please Mod" menu item.
--Clicked on "Tools" menu . . . nothing; no "Long URL Please Mod" menu item.
You can test the functionality of the plugin on the testsite I use when adding new short url services, which can be found at
Can support Twitter's http://t.co ?
The original Long URL please has fixed a memory issue. Can you please update your modded version as well? Thanks a lot.
Very good addon. I want to say that it would be even more useful if it works combined with addons such as "linkification" that I use a lot.
sadly, I must use long url please addon.
You should show a list of services you added in this mod. And please add this crappy and so annoying "adf.ly"!
Works perfectly with Aurora 8.0a2
Essencial addon =)
Please update to work with Firefox version 4+
Where is 4.0 support?
Update for Firefox 4.0, please?
Great addon, can you update it for ff4 and make it work for thunderbird please.
Super addon, genau das was ich gesucht habe!
This is a great addon, I love it! Keep up the good work.
But I have a small request too, could you also add support for voom.in short url service? (for example: http://voom.in?to=S4Gfvs)
Edit: wow, that was fast! Thanks
worthy successor of Long Url Please! I've used it for years and was a bit disappointed that many of the newer short url weren't expanded. They all work with this modifications!
keep up the good work.
@Sharma: I've tried your too, but to be honest, it really sucks that you have to right click on the link to see where it leads! This addon replaces all urls almost instantly. No extra works required
