When I installed this calculator add on and saw how small it was ( have a look at the photo, it's tiny and sits in the status bar) I thought it was useless but I started using it and realised it was all that I needed. You can use the keyboard to type in numbers. Very simple, completely and useFUL and it works with version 3.5.
if you ran into my last review of this add-on, I apologize, that was what I was saying about the OTHER status-bar calculator that I replaced with THIS one...
This one is wonderful and works great with the organize status bar add-on! simple and efficient, and thank GOODNESS for being able to use the number keys instead of clicking number buttons on the screen.
Great little addon for FF! I use it for merchanting online w/o having to bring up the annoying windows calculator. And BTW, why does it say "denifednu" when you convert a blank decimal field to octal or hex?
Status-bar Calculator is a very convenient add on to firefox and is to my knowledge, the only caculator that lies in the status bar and supports keyboard entry. It is great for off the cuff calculations. However, be warned. In version 2.0, there appears to be something wrong with the "=" keyboard entry method. It appears to calculate everything twice? That's at least what I've seen. Clicking on the "=" GUI button works though.
Is there anyway we could get a fix? I don't much like having to click.
Tiny and very basic, but it's right there where I need it and does the job without getting in the way. Atm I'm looking for a new job so whilst browsing/job hunting I can calulate wage stuff on the same page. Thanks. I'd love to see this lil feature incorporated onto taskbars too!
