As a developer I LOVE this addon. Editing code can be a relief if it is done in your favorite editor with a nice syntax highlighting instead of an ugly textarea.

An of course cache files are deleted after some time ;)

It is a pity to see how some people give a bad review for a nice tool that they simply don't understand...

WARNING! ***DESTROYS*** Your Files After Seven Days! WARNING! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This program is doing the same thing to me. It is deleting texts that I expected to be able to refer back to.

According to the other review, it is a deliberate part of the software and I find that unintelligible.

This program is useless to me as it is I am quite sorry to say.

WARNING! ***DESTROYS*** Your Files After Seven Days! WARNING! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This would be an excellent add-on except that it deletes the files you saved after 7 days. It is a hard-coded "feature" -- see below.

I just found out that I lost several months of writing. I may be able to retrieve some from backups if my backup system saves old files. Even there, I expect considerable loss.

I understand that the Internet runs on the most cynical of intentions, but software that destroys the output of its users is a new twist.

A look through itsalltext.js shows the offending code starting at about line 900. A hard-coded destruction mechanism.

Christian Höltje -- fix your product! The difference between one star and five is your poor documentation skills. If you fix it, I'll upgrade the review.

What happened?

Can you explain what happened in more detail? I can be contacted via https://docwhat.org/email/ if it is private.

Hmm... okay, I'm taking a guess: Did you set the "Working Directory" to where you save normal documents? And then it cleaned up all files over 7 days?

I'll change that label to "Cache Directory" instead and mention that it auto-cleans up that directory.

It's a wonderful extension. Works great with emacsclient.

Brilliant idea, now I can use my editor with TiddlyWiki! I can now edit multiple lines at the same time, etc... great to have this extension!

Unfortunately, this add-on doesn't work very well with Apple's TextEdit, because some UTF-8 characters get corrupted.

It works much better with TextMate. But TextMate is a more complex text editor. If you don't know it, it will take a bit of time to set it up so it behaves like TextEdit, but then it will work fine with this add-on.

Unicode characters get corrupted. :( Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The process of opening text in an external editor and saving the edited back to the web page works flawlessly. However, there is one issue that makes this pretty unusable for me: Even though the character set is UTF-8 (default), any non-ASCII characters in the text saved back to the browser get replaced with weird characters—diacritics (special characters in other languages), even typographic quotation marks. This happens with any editor I've tried (including Vim, Notepad, LibreOffice), so it's clearly a matter of this addon, not of the external editor. I'm still assuming this is a matter of settings, as no one else seems to have this issue. There even is a five-star review in Japanese below... However, when I copy and paste the Japanese text into an external editor and save it back to Firefox with this addon, all characters are replaced by question marks. Doh. Any help appreciated!

Firefox's built in editor isn't bad, but for serious text editing it's joy to easily pop the text out into a full featured text editor. Especially helpful at Facebook, where I regularly forget I need to use Ctrl+Enter to create a new line and accidentally post incomplete things.

Abandoned? There are still outstanding bugs with respect to Stylish, but the author is no longer replying to the Stylish developer or updating the extension in any other visible way.

It's All Text is the first addon I install whenever I set up Firefox on a new machine. I can't imagine editing text of any size in a simple textarea anymore; having the power of Vim at my fingertips makes writing for the web much more convenient. If you have a favorite text editor, you need this addon!

I can't express sufficiently what a great add-on this is. There are some detailed instructiuons for its setup for Linux & Mac on Wikipedia:
