Seems to have a lot of potential, but does not seem to work with Firefox 9. Please fix
Is anyone interested in a Firefox 4/Gecko 2 version of this extension?
Doesnt successfully disable Java & doesn't have facility to disable Flash, needs improvement.
Very useful add on. Please update for Firefox 4.0 Beta 2.
Do you still support this add on? I would like to update Firefox to 3.5, but I cannot while Prefswitch isn't compatible.
I uploaded prefswitch-0.3.2, but it will take some time to get through the review process. You will loose your switches/profiles (if created by yourself). Make sure to backup the files in your profile folder > extensions > firstname.lastname@example.org. Also consider using the release from http://prefswitch.mozdev.org .
I like it. But it would be nice if there was more feedback about what profile is active. So I suggest the option to display a text label that displays the name of the active profile next to the PrefSwitch icon. Also, when right-clicking on PrefSwitch icon, I would love to have a submenu through which I can control the switches of the current active profile (a submenu similar to show/hide, but for turning on/off switches). This way I could hide all statusbar icons except for the main icon, thus saving lots of space and having everything less cluttered there.
Thank you for the great extension.
But it cannot work properly with Organize Statusbar Buttons.
Another suggestion, when can icons be used instead of colorful texts?
This plugin is great:
Thanks a lot!
A little gem!
It still needs some polishing, like ability to clone and move up/down for profiles/switches/states. Plus moving settings from extension dir to profile would be a good idea... despite that it's one of those extensions that (in skillful hands) can replace many, many others! Simple idea behind it that makes it so damn good ;)
Been looking for something like this for years. Highly configurable, extensible and robust. A must-have for power users. Thanks a lot!
Great extension although how do I remove the CSS and JS in the status bar? Also my own switches I can show/hide but disappear once I restart the browser.
I made the changes you asked for.
You can hide the CSS/JS by right-clicking on any switch, then choose Show/hide and there you can hide them.
If you now select your own switches to be visible, they will not be hidden anymore when opening a new window or exiting/restarting. I suggest you change or add a profile which then will show your switches when it is selected.
ambitious but extremely useful, about time something like this shows up
