I am all about FF Addon Dev and helping others with their dev. At my website you can find addon dev resources (@Gists), my addons in progress (@GitHub), and how to reach me for help (@StackOverflow).

Add-ons I've created

YNews!

When you search Yahoo, with the built-in search bar on Firefox, the loaded search does not show a jump link to "News". This adds it in.

ChatZilla

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can we get an option to open this in a tab, i would love to have this as a pinned tab. Currently i do that with mibbit but on every startup i have to manually join all my regular channels.

Text to Voice

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is nice but it needs an internet connection to work. If you are available to collaborate I can help you create a native version using js-ctypes, windows and mac osx are ready i havent worked on linux though yet.

deskCut

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This seems to not work on Windows. I think what this does is create a file on desktop, and when you click it, it opens the website?

The error I get when I click on "create deskcut" from context menu is:

NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsILocalFile.initWithPath] deskcut.js:931:0

The drop down is extremely pretty! Very very lovely UI!

I was actually planing on making the about:newtab page be a dashboard like this. It will list all the about: pages with a pretty icon like this. As addons register their html5 applications on about: pages, we can list them all out at about:about.

Then the new tab thumbnails I doc swap into the awesomebar suggestions area when its blank, and instead of showing the tab thumbnail I show a circle icon like you created here for the different pages, but like Safari does it. Would you be interested in collaborating on this project? Here's a mockup:

Desktop Messenger for Telegram™

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wowww. Totally sweet! This should be frontpage material. Would be awesome if you can make about:teleggram page so I can pin the tab as an HTML5 application as well :) I dont like to clutter my toolbar too much.

Developer Edition theme enabler

FireMath

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent!! You should make this an about: page so I can access it like an HTML5 application in my Firefox :) Very very useful!

CLiCk, Speak.js

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extremely cool! We actually did some js-ctypes for windows and osx specific text to speech:
windows - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/js-ctypes/Examples/Using_COM_from_js-ctypes
mac os x - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/js-ctypes/Examples/Using_Objective-C_from_js-ctypes

So this is real cool you find a method for linux too.

We are also working on an addon to bring speech-to-text ability here: https://github.com/Noitidart/FoxSpeak/issues/1

Easy Screenshot

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you very much Wei Deng for your quick reply and taking into consideration my idea on if cursor exceeds bound of window it should continue to scroll that direction, otherwise its very choppy Ill take a youtube screencast to show you.

I forgot to mention my all time favorite thing about this addon, it is for Firefox only! I love how you didn't take it to other browsers. This matches the Firefox dark theme very well, can you please make it also match the light theme? :)

I actually made a screenshot addon myself but its a bit different, I would love to chat with you developers, your canvas editor is absolutely beautiful! I have some ideas :D

It'a a very good advice, but I think by means of scrolling mouse is much more convenient than moving cursor to scroll web pages. I will discuss it with someone working for UE. Thank you very much.

Very very awesome! I love how when selecting "web page region" it scrolls the page when I move cursor to edge of window. But the scrolling is tricky to accomplish, if we move the cursor outside of the browser it no longer scrolls, can you please fix this. I love this addon! Windows users have the nice option to take a "Screen Region" for the current monitor.

Screenshoter (Fixed)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was looking for a wepage (visible area, full webpage, page selection) screenshot addon that was designed just for Firefox and finally found it. Thanks for this awesome thing. It would be nice to see maybe a simple editor in it someday like we see in native screenshots for LightShot addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lightshot/ :)

Just one feature request/bug when I do selection I want to select and when I move to edge of window it should scroll the page if the page is scrollable. It currently doesnt scroll if I move to edge. :(

Also bug 2: When go to context menu and do "Complete Page > Copy" it does only visible portion.
