Word Count Plus

Easy to make work in FF version 13 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on has not been updated since September 2008 in spite of numerous requests (pleas!) from users. The work around is to update the install.rdf file for each Firefox update (now v. 13.0). This is necessary as the Add-on Compatibility Reporter no longer allows use of incompatible add-ons. However, another add-on restores this feature so that incompatible add-ons can be used at the discretion of the user.

"Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks" v. 1.3 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/checkcompatibility/) reinstates the extensions Check Compatibility preference without respect to the current application version. It saves the user from having to change/update each install.rdf file following each Firefox update. It works to restore functionality of Word Count Plus and other disabled add-ons. However, with Word Count Plus, the Add-on bar must be open to show the word count. Of course, as with other workarounds, you need to check the resulting output, and your mileage may vary.

Review and Suggestions for next version Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Review:
An excellent, easy to use add-on.
Suggestions:
1. Please add the html tags < p > and < br > in your next version.
2. Could you make it so that we can customize tags?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.5.6).
