was the best interweb transmographier Rated 5 out of 5 stars

platypus allowed the less than savvy user to rearrange pages to one's own liking. Such power is typically reserved for UserScript authors fluent in XPath and related queries, or those with a CSS penchant (ala Stylish)

There exists a need for proponents of adblocking (AdBlock Edge, karma blocker) to collapse- or move elements. With AdBlock Edge (ethical tinkering adblock "plus") one can remove ads from a div but not collapse the div [to retain space in interweb email]

hopefully some brave, charitable soul will resume development of Platypus. Perhaps one that plays extremely well with privoxy functions?

Such a new platypus would do well to output for userscript (as is), but also pure CSS (into stylish) and some bits into AdBlock Edge.

New modified version - 0.83 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some time ago i made a version that added Firefox 4 compability.Now im updating this up to version 8.0 compability.

So should work fine in 6.0 - 7.0 and 8.0.Just download and open it with firefox.You will be prompted for install.So even on Firefox 8 you won't get any incompability warning.Also changed version to 0.83.Working nicely here on 6.0:

Once again, this add-on will work with FF 5, simply needed to modify the version number. If you don't want to mess with that yourself, you can download an updated copy of Platypus here (merely changed the version number in the install.rdf file, added my name to it):

Im still using the following addon which allows to HIDE specific elements of a website using Add Block Plus:
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/elemhidehelper/?src=collection&collection_id=162d7314-da31-4f38-8df8-4a7892200b54
But still, Platypus has way more usefull options to personalize single websites.
5 stars, allthou Im still waiting for support for Firefox 5+

Thank you @RaXelliX!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First off, I can't believe more people don't use Platypus - I loves loves loves it. Second, a HUGE thank you to @RaXelliX for getting it working for FF4, I am grateful someone else did what I am probably too lazy to do.

I was in communication with Scott (the author of Platypus) some 7 months ago, asking if I could help get it updated, but got very busy soon after. I just wrote to him to find out if anything has changed with it, maybe I will get things going on it...but then again, maybe not. :)

Why the FF4 version is not official? I would like to see.

Thanks to "TheSilverOne" for the file from his profile that made me figure this out. Last thing on my mind was to build my heavily customized Firefox profile from scratch because of 1 add-on. :( Luckily the problem was rather simple: missing chrome.manifest file for Platypus add-on.

Tried "bump version to 3.6.*" and tried to install Platypus 0.82 that is supposed to be working with Firefox 3.7. Did not work. And every time I tried to open Platypus options, my Firefox got frozen.

Works with 3.5.9
Workaround1 for 3.6* is to use the 3.5.9 profile, then "make compatible" with Mr Tech Toolkit)
Workaround2 for 3.6* is to use the 3.5.9 profile, then "bump version to 3.6*" open the xpi (with a zip manager), alter the "max version" line in the file "intall.rdf" (with a text editor), then save changes, restart firefox.

It's too bad that this is no longer being supported. I used Platypus extensively throughout the day and it had become an integral part of my workflow. Sigh...
