30 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 3.0b4 18.5 KiB Works with Firefox 16.0 - 47.*, SeaMonkey 2.13 - 2.39, Thunderbird 31.0 - 47.*

* Fix various shutdown code issues (memory leak after add-on disabled until application, e.g. Firefox, restart)

* Drop support for Add-ons Manager Dialog Returns (which is broken on current Firefox versions anyway)
* Added el locale (thanks to George Malamas)
Known issues:
* This fixes all known memory issues, but only restarting the application (e.g. Firefox) can clean up any memory possibly leaked by a prior version.
* When uninstalling this extension, the Add-ons Manager page is reloaded, eliminating the chance to click "Undo". If you changed your mind, you will need to reinstall this extension.

* Chosen sort should be restored even if option to always restore hilite is off
* Fixed: clicking the "Enabled" sort button on another category causes the "Extensions" category to become selected

*If "Always Restore Hilite" option is disabled, the previously used sort order is not restored after closing/re-opening the Add-ons Manager.

* Added: Support for Dictionaries/Language Packs, Scriptish userscripts, and Custom Buttons (patch by Zoolcar9)
* Ignore sort option for Greasemonkey Userscripts and Custom Buttons categories (since they provide their own sorting buttons)
* Fixed: Issue with Services category

Known issues:
Adding items such as userscripts, 'Custom Buttons' buttons, etc. may not immediately add them to the Autocomplete Listbox. They will appear next time the Add-on Manager is opened (or press F5 to refresh).
Enabling the (off by default) sorting option may cause some delay as the items resort

Version 2.0rc 15.1 KiB Works with Firefox 16.0 - 24.0a2, SeaMonkey 2.13 - 2.21.*, Thunderbird 16.0 - 24.0a2

* Minor code cleanup, etc. (No functional changes since 2.0b4)

Version 2.0b2 15.0 KiB Works with Firefox 15.0 - 20.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.12 - 2.17a1, Thunderbird 15.0 - 20.0a1

* Fixed: Updating a restartless add-on results in duplicate item in listbox
* Added: (about:config) option extensions.addonsmgrhilte@cfl.showVersion when set to true will show add-on's version number in dropdown listbox (takes effect next time Add-ons Manager is opened - or press F5 to refresh)
* 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 - 19.*, SeaMonkey 2.12 - 2.16.*, Thunderbird 15.0 - 19.*

* 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.)
* Fixed: Newly installed restartless Add-ons should be immediately added to optional 'Show Add-ons' listbox
* 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 1.1rc2 14.7 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 18.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.15a1, Thunderbird 7.0 - 18.0a1

* 'Sort Alphabetically Only' option now takes effect immediately rather than next time Add-ons Manager is opened.
* Minor cosmetic fix to Options panel

Version 1.1rc 14.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 16.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.13.*, Thunderbird 7.0 - 16.*

* Tweaks to appearance on OSX

* 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

Version 1.1a1 14.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 14.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.11.*, Thunderbird 7.0 - 14.*

* 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 1.0rc2 12.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 14.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.11.*, Thunderbird 7.0 - 14.*

Changes since 1.0rc (major changes since 0.8.3):

* Increase possible number of results shown when typing in optional autocomplete listbox before scrollbar appears
* Switch license to MPL 2.0

Version 1.0rc 12.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 11.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.7.*, Thunderbird 7.0 - 11.*

Changes since beta 4 (Major changes since 0.8.3):
* Restyle/recode autocomplete dropdown to enable more items to display before requiring scrollbar use

Version 1.0b4 12.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 10.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.5.*, Thunderbird 7.0 - 9.*

* 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 11.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 10.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.5.*, Thunderbird 7.0 - 9.*

Changes since beta 2: (Major changes since 0.8.3)

* 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 10.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 10.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.5a2, Thunderbird 7.0 - 9.0a2

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'

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 10.0 KiB Works with Firefox 7.0 - 8.*, SeaMonkey 2.4 - 2.5a2, Thunderbird 7.0 - 8.*

* 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.
