Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This very nice and useful extension appears to have been broken. :(

No matter what regular expression is entered into the "Regular Expression" field the response is: "The entered string is not a regular expression!"

Also the new auto bracket functionality suck ass. I HATE IT. Too many functions do not a good application make. Any chance of getting hold of a previous OLD version?

This extension was one of the most use full ones in my development arsenal. Be nice to have it fixed.

Broken with:
Mac OS X Leopard - Firefox 3.5.9 - latest version of the extension.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0). 

Known problems with Mac OS

Due to a problem related to the Java Embedding Plugin under Mac OS in combination with LiveConnect interpreting the expressions using Java is not possible at the moment. Therefore I created a new version, that at least automatically falls back to JavaScript interpretation instead of showing that misleading message. For more info about this see http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2999075&group_id=107955&atid=649116.

What's the problem with bracket auto-completion? The current implementation is working like many IDE's. If that's a problem for you, simply disable the completion in the RExT settings.
