It's All Text!

Suggestion for default editor setting Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The main thing I want to do is to change tiny text boxes to big text boxes while I'm entering text.

The way I usually do this is opening a tab with this HTML:
<TEXTAREA ROWS=38 COLS=113 WRAP></TEXTAREA>

Those numbers give me the tallest & widest text box that will fit in my browser window for my font & screen resolution & toolbars & etc.. Other users may want to use different numbers.

Then I paste or type a bunch of text into the big text box, scan it for red underlines (misspelled words), and when I'm happy with it, copy the whole thing, close the tab, drop or paste it into the original small text box and hit "SUBMIT".

That's what I did just now to enter THIS text into the small text box provided for entering reviews.

I see that this extension ships with the editor field uninitialized. So my suggestion is to make it default to working the way I described above and let the user simply change the number of rows & columns they want in the "It's All Text!" options dialog.

ReloadEvery

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I know it says not to post bug reports in reviews but this site makes it impossible to submit bugs without registering multiple places with multiple passwords and revealing an email address!

Anyway, the bug: When I right click on a tab and select Enable it enables it on a different tab (the current tab) than the one I right clicked on.

TinEye Reverse Image Search

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It works great for me. I want a "TinEye" button added to images similar to how the "image fetcher" extension adds a "save" button.

Pinger

code reference Rated 4 out of 5 stars

See the Link Status extension for Firefox. It puts a bookmarked/visited/unvisited star icon in the status bar but I like pinger's colored-links approach better if you could add this feature.

visited/unvisited colors Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this! But it doesn't solve the problem I have. More & more web pages are displaying all links as unvisited whether I have visited them or not.

I want pinger to color visited & unvisited (according to my history) links differently. (You could also give bookmarked links their own color.)

It would also be nice if pinger would run automatically whenever I go to a URL which matches a wildcard list of URLs I have entered in its options.

StatusbarEx

Page last visited history query Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please add a choice to the options settings for "show time current page last visited." Then the next time I load the page I will know to look for information on the page which has dates/times newer than that (stuff I haven't seen yet).

This page has info about how to do that:

View Source Chart

DOM InspectThis Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It would be nice if you could display the current DOM location in a dialog box for copying, or go to it with pasting. See InspectThis ,https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1913

InspectThis

Visual Source Chart Rated 5 out of 5 stars

In addition to this extension, I recommend Visual Source Chart https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/655 which displays the source code for the current selection color-coded and in context.

CookieSwap

logouts in FF3 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

CookieSwap worked great for me in FF2. I had multiple profiles each logged into various sites under different accounts, and after swapping cookie profiles all I had to do was refresh the tabs to see the current user's home page or mail messages or account settings or whatever.

When I updated to FF3 (CookieSwap version 0.5.1) that stopped working. Now each time I swap cookie profiles I'm logged out of everything and have to log in again by typing in my userid and password on each site every time. How do I get the old behavior back where CookieSwap leaves all of my accounts logged in under different profiles until I explicitly logout?
