Nice addon.

Here resolving this problem:

Service has been revived. dnsmadeeasy.com has assumed responsibility for hosting & maintenance of the LongURL.org service. See http://twitter.com/DNSMadeEasy/status/12212203681, etc.

Review-wise:
Still supports the most URL shorteners, but hasn't seen an update in almost 11 months. LongURLPlease is swiftly overtaking this extension in terms of feature-completeness and reliability.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1).

I don't notice the performance issues encountered by the other users and find this Add-on one of the more useful in my collections. I'm at the point now where I won't click on a shortened link unless LongURL tells me where I'm going.

That being said, I'm at a loss at the moment, as it's not compatible with FF3.6...LONGURL WHERE ARE YOU?

It works, but it takes quite a while to get the long URL. In fact, it would be faster to click on the link and load up the page then to actually wait for the long URL to show up, which makes this useless.

I would like to see this work fast and available in the status bar. Also, I had no issues watching youtube videos with this plugin.

Jerky youtube videos Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I have the same problem as jarodirc. It seems to make youtube videos quite jerky. I then tried out the greasemonkey version, but its still the same.

I found that all my video laggued too much every 10 seconds. After searching on the Net about Firefox, I changed everything I found in about:config with no result.
I tried to launch Firefox without any extension and my videos worked very well. Then I tried to desactivate my add-on one by one, and I found that this one (Long URL tool) was at the origin of my issue....

I don't know why but your script seems to create a lag every 10 seconds when watching a video (Youtube, Facebook, ...)

Works! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Contrary to the "Long URL Please" addon, this one actually works for me! Thank you!

Took me forever to figure out that this app was responsible for freezing facebook! Otherwise it is great.

"Supports ALL shortening services."

Just what I was looking for! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While I understand the need for short URLs, a lot of information is lost when all you can see is http://bit.ly/sfasdfdks. Before clicking a link, I generally like to know where I'm going (what domain), especially if all someone says is "Check this out!" I thought this might be the perfect application for an add-on and, low and behold, here it is!

This add-on works exactly as advertised. Find any one of a number of different varieties of shortened URLs on virtually any webpage, hover over the link and within a second or two you get a little box with the expanded URL and the title of the destination page. There's also a link that takes you to some additional useful information at http://longurl.org/expand?url=...

This add-on is very handy and never gets in the way. Load it up and forget it. Very well done!

hangs FF 3.5 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

took me a long time to isolate which add-on hangs FF (it eventually responds again), it turned out to be this add-on. happens when editing long forms on FB, amazon search drop down list, etc. uninstalled this add-on asap and FF looks beautiful again.

bug fix for "current_domain is null" Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Add an if condition after current_domain variable declaration.

var current_domain = document.location.href.match(/^https?:\/\/(?:www\.)?([^\.]+\.[^\/]+)/i);
if(current_domain!==null){
//start of for loop
....
//end of for loop
}

Fix suggested ms1418 works great! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Adding the If statement as suggested by ms1418 solved the pop up error box reported.

Thanks!

Bugfix for previous posts Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Hi all,

to fix the bug with the current_domain is null you have to modify the file longurlmobileexpander.js on line 79:

The new line should look like:
-----------------------------------------------------------
var current_domain = document.location.href.match(/^https?:\/\/(?:www\.)?([^\.]+(\.[^\/]+)?)/i);
-----------------------------------------------------------

I just made the second part of the domain optional in the regex.

Best regards,

Matthias Jansen

Confirms the previous post. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I can confirm the bug Roland Spencer just found. It is really disturbing when developing on localhost for example. I use the fully released Mozilla Firefox 3.5.

Small Bug Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've discovered a small bug that crops up with this extension installed on Firefox 3.5 RC2 with Windows XP... when this extension is installed and you open a local file(a web page stored on the hard drive i.e. - file:///location), an error box pops up as soon as the page finishes loading that says current_domain is null. It happens every time a local file is opened with this extension installed and enabled, and does not happen when this extension is disabled or uninstalled
