In a little more detail...

I'm a software writer from Auckland, New Zealand. As well as add-ons, I make websites, games, graphic design works, and contribute to the Mozilla project to make Firefox and Thunderbird better. I also spend a large part of my time working with schoolkids from the local area.

I need your donations if I'm going to spend any time making add-ons, so please donate! If you'd rather send me BitCoin instead of using PayPal, use this address: 1MgmXssGd1P8gpXGda5E7ndh9G9Ta4nCsf

Add-ons I've created

Tab Badge

Adds a small badge to your tabs to alert you to (for example) new messages on Facebook. The badge is also visible when the tabs are pinned so you can see when there's something new available.

This add-on is not being converted to a WebExtension.

Better Reader

Better Reader improves Firefox's Reader View by giving you more control over font choice, margin size, and color scheme.

This extension is not being converted to a WebExtension. That's currently not possible.

My Reviews

Messaging Menu and Unity Launcher Integration

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I had to change "libdbusmenu-gtk.so.3" to "libdbusmenu-gtk.so.4" in modules/LibDBusmenu.jsm to get it working, but apart from that, great!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6).
