Version 2.0b3 15.4 KiB Works with Firefox 15.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.12 and later, Thunderbird 15.0 and later

Version 2.0b2 15.0 KiB Works with Firefox 15.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.12 and later, Thunderbird 15.0 and later

* Added: (about:config) option extensions.addonsmgrhilte@cfl.updatedSort when set to true will sort by last updated instead of alpha

Known issues:
* If upgrade from b1 -> b2 is done w/ AoM open, Addons Manager Hilite will be listed twice in the (optional) listbox after the upgrade, but will be corrected next time Add-ons Manager is opened. This is due to bug in b1, so *only* affects b1 to b2 upgrade, not e.g. 1.1 upgrade to 2.0.
* If Add-ons Manager Dialog Returns extension is also installed, the aomhilite.xml file will be leaked and show as a zombie compartment. Likely due to the general leak that occurs with only Add-ons Manager Dialog Returns (see http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2063057&p=12686705#p12686705) and AFAIK not fixable by Addons Manager Hilite. aomhilite.xml is only a 1kb file, so this should not be a major issue.

Version 2.0b1 14.1 KiB Works with Firefox 15.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.12 and later, Thunderbird 15.0 and later

* No longer requires restart to install/uninstall. (If you have a prior version installed and enabled, a restart will be required to uninstall that previous version.)

* Compatible with Add-ons Manager Dialog Returns version 1.2.1
* 'Show Add-ons' listbox now defaults to enabled (can be changed via 'Options').
* Improvements to appearance/useability of Options section. ('Autocomplete Listbox Size' should be disabled when 'Show Add-ons' listbox is unselected. 'Instant-apply' changes; remove 'Apply' button. 'Sort Alphabetically Only' takes effect immediately rather than next time Add-ons Manager is opened. Fixed 2px jump of page when 'Show Select Add-on List' is enabled/disabled.)
* Drop support for versions of Firefox/Thunderbird prior to 15 (enables removal of workaround for bug in previous versions)

Known issue:
Updating a restartless add-on results in duplicate item in listbox. Workaround: Press F5 (or close and reopen) to refresh Add-ons Manager. (fix planned for beta 2.)

Version 1.1.1-signed 14.6 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

* Improved Firefox 15 compatibility (issue with keyboard usage of add-on selection listbox)
* Enable add-on selection by usage of 'down arrow' while typing into autocompleting add-on listbox
* Enhancement (Win/OSX): Make styling of optional add-on selection listbox more similar to that of the Search Box.
* Fixed: If number of installed extensions (or userstyles, etc.) are less than 35 and the window is not very tall, some items may not fit into list and the only way to access them is to resize the window. Unless you're using a very tiny window, this issue should no longer occur. Note that this fix may result in somewhat less add-ons appearing in list before scrollbar appears. If you always use a sufficiently tall window and thus avoid encountering this bug, you may restore the old behavior by setting extensions.addonsmgrhilte@cfl.extraRows to true in about:config (takes effect next time you open Add-ons Manager)
* 'Sort Alphabetically Only' option now takes effect immediately rather than next time Add-ons Manager is opened.
* Minor cosmetic fix to Options panel (Input field for entering 'Listbox Size' made smaller)

Version 1.1rc2 14.7 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

* Enable add-on selection by usage of 'down arrow' while typing into autocompleting add-on listbox

Version 1.1a1 14.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

* Enhancement (Win/OSX): Make styling of optional autocomplete listbox (menulist of add-ons) more similar to that of the Search Box in default theme.
* Fixed: If number of installed extensions (or userstyles, etc.) are less than 35 and the window is not very tall, some items may not fit into list and the only way to access them is to resize the window. Unless you're using a very tiny window, this issue should no longer occur.
* Note that fix above may result in somewhat less add-ons appearing in list before scrollbar appears. If you always use a sufficiently tall window and thus avoid encountering this bug, you may restore the old behavior by setting extensions.addonsmgrhilte@cfl.extraRows to true in about:config (takes effect next time you open Add-ons Manager)

Version 1.0.1-signed 12.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

* Added support for Appearance (themes) and Plugins pane
* Added support for 'User Styles' pane added by Stylish extension
* Added support for Thunderbird and SeaMonkey
* Replaced the hilite button with Options - choose desired behavior and it happens automatically
* Added option to choose whether to use/display the add-on list dropdown (defaults to off)
* 'Add-on list' dropdown now displays your selection in detailed view if you are currently in detailed view (otherwise hilites selected item in list and scrolls to it)
* 'Add-on list' dropdown now features autocomplete of typed text entry
(Items in dropdown get filtered to those which match entered text; click on item in list at any time or press <enter> once list displays only one entry.)
* Added option to set autocomplete listbox size (Cropped add-on names get shown in tooltip; Increase size if too many get cropped.)
* Added fix for Bug 616440 (aids scrolling in detailed view and prevents that bug from triggering issues in Addons Manager Hilite)
* Alphabetical-only sort now a (visible rather than hidden) option
* Fixed 'cat is null' error (caused issues when Add-ons Manager was reopened via session restore)
* Added hidden (about:config) option: extensions.addonsmgrhilte@cfl.UIextra
- When set to true provides access to the last previously saved hilite in each category (e.g. extensions) by adding it to the top of the autocomplete dropdown list in the format <add-on name="">. This option only has an effect if 'Always Restore Hilite' is OFF and the autocomplete listbox is ON. Takes effect next time the Add-ons Manager is opened.
* Define event handlers using addEventListener instead of setAttribute (AMO validator recommendation)
* Added locale folder (to enable possible future translations)
* Added custom icon
* Drop support for Firefox versions prior to 7 (due to use of inline options)
* Switch license to MPL 2.0

Known issue: When installing/uinstalling a restartless add-on, the optional listbox is not automatically updated. Closing/re-opening Add-ons Manager (or press F5 to refresh it) will update the list.

Note: 'Alphabetical sort' option has no effect on 'User Styles' (Stylish). This is intentional, since Stylish supplies sorting buttons.
