Thanks for writing this add-on! It's highly irritating that Mozilla removed this feature, but this is a good workaround.
How to update Awesome Screenshot manually so that it's compatible with Firefox 8, if you are comfortable with making small technical changes:
1. Close Firefox
2. Go to your Firefox Profile directory, then to \extensions\jid0-GXjLLfbCoAx0LcltEdFrEkQdQPI@jetpack
3. Edit the 'install.rdf' file with a text editor
4. Change maxVersion to 8.*
Restart Firefox. Awesome Screenshot is now compatible with FF8 and works perfectly!
You're not the author of a competing product trying to diss a rival are you?
I've just checked the code, and version 0.9.10 appears to be identical to 0.9.8. It's simply been reverted to the previous good version.
There is no problem at all with code as far as I can see.
How exactly is this add-on 'fraudulent'? And how exactly do you imagine it's conceivably going to harm anyone? Please explain logically - if you can - rather than making wild and hysterical statements.
It seems that a version with a nag screen was created. There was a negative reaction from users, so the nag was removed and the previous version restored. Big deal.
Calm down, all! :-) There was a problem with release 0.9.9 but it has been quickly fixed in version 0.9.10.
I agree that the author, CJ, should post a message with an explanation, but he has obviously realized it was a mistake and removed the nag.
I feel less inclined to blame because, after all, Google Chrome ripped off his idea for how a download status bar should work. Please cut him some slack.
This is an extremely valuable and useful add-on. I use it all the time and I would hate to be without it.
