You can find an experimental version for FF 3.5.* at https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addons/versions/1306#version-1.0.7
Sometimes I'm in the middle of something and I don't want to close my FF tabs.
I like Stealther because it doesn't force me to close my tabs like "private browsing" does.
It sucks there's no update to make it work with FF 3.5.x, however, you can easily hack the xpi file to make it compatible:
1. Open the xpi file with winzip
2. Edit the file "install.rdf" with gvim or some other text editor. Change the version in "x.y.z where x=3, y= 8, and z=* (for example) this will make the addon work with FF 3.8.x
3. Save the file and have winzip update the archive.
4. Open the xpi file with FireFox.
5. Voila. Stealther works again.
One more asks for update!!!
I agree with Pang. Private browsing is a sad.
I don't want to close all my tabs to browse privately. What happens if I want to open a few links privately with private browsing? I have to save them all into notepad. Then turn it on and paste them one by one into the address bar. Including switching time (I sometimes have 100+ tabs open) it takes about 50 seconds.
What happens with Stealther? I just activate stealther and I ctrl-click on the links. 3 seconds of work.
Please create an update.
Please An update for 3.5 :(((
Please An update for 3.5 :(((
To those who say that Private Browsing made this add on obsolete, you don't know what you're saying. Private Browsing still takes in cookies, it only erases them after the session, it stops and removes all your tabs and their processes, so clicking a link or trying to use your history will not suffice. Private Browsing is AWFUL!
Stealther accepts no cookies so that a site will not be able to keep track of how many times you enter. This is a great feature for sites with limits on how much you see and use (Such as Megavideo and some adult providers.) Stealther also leaves your tabs open so that you can click on a link securely when you don't have it active.
Stealther is the easier and superior way of browsing securely.
Unfortunately Firefox 3.5.2 is incompatible with this add on. I would like to see it's return ASAP.
Like the title says, it turns off cookies in the Firefox preferences and doesn't restore the browser to a usable state when it is uninstalled. Combined with the history deletion issue, this can only be considered a hack, which is unfortunate.
An add-on should not delete your history without the user's consent, (I see no real reason an add-on would do this anyways) and for this reason I give this a rating of one out of five. This is an massive bug that I am amazed made it into an actual release. Makes me wonder if the authors are as amateur as this makes them seem.
The idea of the add-on sounds like it would be useful, but from this one incredible flaw in it's design we can safely assume that it is NOT a safe add-on to install for the time being. Maybe if the bugs are fixed I will try it again someday and post a better, more positive review.
I love this addon, really looking forward to it working on 3.5. A must have in simple privacy and protection
Very good extension, but this one other extensions are blocking me from migrating to Firefox 3.5.1. Is there going to be support any time soon?
I am not pushing just asking :)
A good add-on, but it gets on my nerves
it worked much, much better than privateBrowsing for me, because it didn't lag up pages. However, i have found one fatal flaw.
If you turn on stealther and don't turn it off before you close firefox, your entire browsing history will disappear. It may delete some other stuff too. ne1 else have this problem
without this glitch, it would get 5/5
I've successfully used this ext for long time. Now it's gone daddy gone. Just go to http://www.zadet.net/, click Web Design (?) and click the Download link. 404 baby. Don't getanyonya.
it worked perfectly for me. IT was fast and discreet. Unlike private browsing addon, this didn't make my firefox become unresponsive.
Awesome, just what I needed!
By the way, I tested this with FFox 3.5.* and it works. Here's how t use it:
- Dowload the Extension "MR. TECH Toolkit"
- Click "Ignore version check" and download
- When prompt screen comes up asking you if you want to install, check the box "Override compatibility checking" at the bottom.
I does perfectly its job. its hard to imagine way to improve it.
Please, update Stealther for Firefox 3.6!
So easy to use and functional. Pleaaaaaase update !
m rating it four stars for what it was. Up until Firefox 30.11 it worked great.
However since November of 2008, Firefox builds already have "Private Browsing" included, which does what Stealther does.
However where "Private Browsing" deletes cookies and the history upon closing, Stealther never accepts it. This is an extra feature that is useful for visiting sites that enact limits to how much you can view and such.
Almost nothing that Firefox can't do. Really annoying when it deletes some good cookies/history you needed. CCleaner does a better job at it.
This worked great for me till' yesterday.
After months of use my history got deleted.
Steer away, or take regulary backup of your history if you are going to use this pile of junk.
I use Firefox 3010 and after Stealther deinstallation cash doesn't work at all! If somebody else has that problem, should enter in the adress bar
3)change parameter to 1 (64 mb cash) or other
Не понимаю, зачем нужные такие плагины? Это все умеет браузер. Или вам сложно нажать "Инструменты" - "Удалить личные данные"?************************
I do not understand, what for the necessary such plug-ins? It is all the browser is able. Or it is difficult to you to press "Tools" - "Remove the personal data"?
Hey, this is a great add-on. I was hoping for a feature in the future such that a single link could be treated in a temporary stealth mode. For example, you could right click on a link and choose "Open in stealth mode" from the context menu so that only that particular link would be hidden that one time. Perhaps there could also be a shortcut key combo to hold while clicking a link that would trigger the same feature. I'd love this to be implemented in a later release!
