I do Genealogy using the open source program, Gramps. Help files are in the form of a huge wiki, therefore I make my own document with more precise info which includes a link to the wiki page. The wiki links were two or three lines long. TinyURL has reduced these perfectly.
I was aware of TinyURL previously, but couldn't be bothered to locate it in my bookmarks. Only realized now that there is this add-on. Thanks for all your creative work.
Very nice and helpful. I do not see the (with preview) context entry though, no matter what I set in the options. Using Pale Moon 20.0.1 x64.
this addon makes sending messages and sharing links so clean. definitely will keep it for a long time.
A nice time saver!
No mucking about with other tabs, or any other go-seek-em games. A simple right click gives me exactly what I need.
Simple and very useful. Thanks.
Been using this for ages, and always hunt it down again when I get a new PC or reinstall FF. There are ones with more options, but this just does the job sweetly.
Works like it should but I wish it had a larger icon for easier clicking and viewing. The thing is extremely small.
Hi David, Glad you find the add-on useful!
Have you tried moving the icon from the add-on bar to the toolbar? This should increase its size; making it easier to use. You can do this by right-clicking the toolbar, selecting "Customise..." and then dragging the TinyURL icon from the add-on bar to wherever you like in the toolbar.
If you need further help please contact me via the support email address.
I use twitter and facebook alot and tinyurl help me to share long link very easily.
I spend most of my time social networking and sharing. This add-on just made my life easier...
On-the add-on bar or in the context menu, the shortened URL is just a click away.
The great part is, not only does it create tiny URLs, it automatically copies it to the clipboard... I just have to Ctrl+V :)
I have to shorten links quite often.
It used to take much time in the past. But this thing makes it so much faster.
It only takes 3 clicks to make a url and paste it in the right place.
Update: I'm using cutyfox with bit.ly now.
Works great (10.0.2), fast and easy to use! Good work.
TinyURL Generator is really easy to use and practical.... thank you!
I just wish there was some way to reposition the add on bar in firefox - tucked away at the bottom with just a tiny (no pun intended) logo I keep forgetting its there
It's possible to move the icon from the add-on bar. If you right click the Toolbar and select Customise you will then be able to drag the icon from the add-on bar to wherever you want on the toolbar. Click done and the icon will appear in the toolbar from now on. Thanks for the review. Richard
Perfect on 7.0.1
I like the add-on a lot, my only problem with it is that it forces the Add-on Bar to display, even if I disable the Add-on Bar.
I would like a future update to include an option to NOT display this in the Add-on Bar (thus removing the problem) or just not even listing in there to begin with. I have disabled the app for now as I cannot stand Xing out of the Add-on Bar upon every new instance of Firefox that I run.
Apologies for taking such a long time to fix the problem but it is now fixed. Installing version 2.5.1 will make the add-on bar respect your wishes as to whether or not it appears.
This add-on is great, as always.
I am not affiliated with the creator of this add-on. But here is a TEMPORARY fix until a new version is released. Use as you wish. For myself, it works perfectly on Firefox 6.0.
This is one of the most useful add on I've tried. Simple, yet efficient. No unnecessary features.
Please consider support for FF 6. I'd appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
Richard, just upgraded to FF6. Any info on timeline for when TinyURL will support it?
You'll be pleased to know that I have tested the add-on a version 9 nightly and it appears to work fine so I have upp'd its max version to 9. You may need to wait until 2.5.1 has been successfully reviewed before you receive the update though.
i use this tinyurl for one year..i love it..very simple, faster and work..make me easy to short my link..
Perfect add-on. Clean, simple and does what it's supposed to. 5*
Like hundreds before me......UPDATE FOR FF4!!
I love this add-on and use it everyday for work!
Excellent! I just wish there was an ETA on a version compatible with FF4. Will rate 5 stars when it works with the latest version.
