Addons Manager Hilite Version History

42 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 1.0b4 12.3 kB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

* Options now include an 'Apply' button, which refreshes the Add-ons Manager page (applying any changes to this extension's options)
* 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.

Known issues:
* If you add item via Stylish's 'Write New Style', it won't appear in listbox until Add-ons Manager is refreshed (press F5) or closed/reopened.
* Spams Error Console with debugging information (debugging info to be removed before final release)
* 'Alphabetical sort' option has no effect on 'User Styles' (Stylish). This is by design, since Stylish has its own sorting buttons.

Version 1.0b3 11.3 kB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

Changes since beta 2: (Major changes since 0.8.3)
* Fixed 'cat is null' error that can cause issues when Add-ons Manager gets reopened via session restore
* Fixed: When selecting from Autocomplete Listbox, it's input area should make visible beginning of Add-on's name (if name overflows visible area), not end
* Increased default size for autocomplete listbox
* Added option to set autocomplete listbox size (Cropped add-on names get shown in tooltip; Increase size if too many get cropped.)

Known issues:
* Changing Options does not automatically update the Add-ons Manager tab; refresh it by pressing F5, or close/reopen the tab.
* If you add item via Stylish's 'Write New Style', it won't appear in listbox until Add-ons Manager is refreshed (press F5) or closed/reopened.
* Spams Error Console with debugging information (debugging info to be removed before final release)
* 'Alphabetical sort' option has no effect on 'User Styles' (Stylish). This is by design, since Stylish has its own sorting buttons.

Version 1.0b2 10.2 kB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

Changes since 1.0b1:
* Improved behavior of 'add-on list' dropdown: now hilites selected item in list and scrolls to it, unless you are currently in detailed view (in which case it displays your selection in detailed view)
* Autocomplete listbox is wider to better display add-on names
* Add support for 'User Styles' category/pane added by Stylish extension
* 'Always Remember Hilite' string changed to 'Always Restore Hilite'
(Many changes since 0.8.3 - see 1.0b1 for details)

Known issues:
Spams Error Console with debugging information (debugging info to be removed before final release)
Changing Options does not automatically update the Add-ons Manager tab; refresh it by pressing F5, or close/reopen the tab.
If you add item via Stylish's 'Write New Style', it won't appear in listbox until Add-ons Manager is refreshed (press F5) or closed/reopened.

Note: Alphabetical sort option does not apply to the User Styles pane added by Stylish since Stylish provides its own sorting buttons.

Version 1.0b1 10.2 kB Works with Firefox 7.0 and later, SeaMonkey 2.4 and later, Thunderbird 7.0 and later

* Added support for Appearance (themes) and Plugins panels
* Added support for Thunderbird and SeaMonkey
* Changed behavior of 'add-on list' dropdown; now displays selected item in detailed view, and 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 fix for Bug 616440 (aids scrolling in detailed view and prevents that bug from triggering issues in Addons Manager Hilite)
* Replaced the hilite button with inline options - choose desired behavior and it happens automatically
* Added option to choose whether to use/display the add-on list dropdown
* Alphabetical-only sort now a (visible rather than hidden) option
* 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)

Notes on inline options (Click 'Options' button and scroll down):
For behavior most like Firefox 3, select the 'Always Restore Hilite' option (default).
For behavior suggested by Bug 586956 (remember until AoM closed or Firefox restarted), uncheck 'Always Restore Hilite'
Turn on 'View Details' list to use/test it (defaults to off, but please turn it on and test, thanks).

Known issues:
Spams Error Console with debugging information (debugging info to be removed before final release)
Changing Options does not automatically update the Add-ons Manager tab; refresh it by pressing F5, or close/reopen the tab.
