In a little more detail...

I'm a software writer/website developer/designer from Auckland, New Zealand. I have a Bachelor of Engineering (Software Engineering) from the University of Auckland.
I'm a volunteer contributor to the Mozilla project, making life easier for users and add-on developers alike.

Add-ons I've created

Tab Badge No Restart

Adds a small badge to your tabs to alert you to (for example) new messages on Facebook. The badge is also visible when the tabs are pinned so you can see when there's something new available.

History Button No Restart

Adds a button with the history drop-down menu to the Firefox toolbar, next to the bookmarks button.

Not compatible with Firefox 29! This functionality is built-in now, you don't need an add-on.

My Reviews

Messaging Menu and Unity Launcher Integration

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I had to change "libdbusmenu-gtk.so.3" to "libdbusmenu-gtk.so.4" in modules/LibDBusmenu.jsm to get it working, but apart from that, great!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6).
