In a little more detail...

I'm a software writer from Auckland, New Zealand. As well as add-ons, I make websites, games, graphic design works, and contribute to the Mozilla project to make Firefox and Thunderbird better. I also spend a large part of my time working with schoolkids from the local area.

I need your donations if I'm going to spend any time making add-ons, so please donate! If you'd rather send me BitCoin instead of using PayPal, use this address: 1MgmXssGd1P8gpXGda5E7ndh9G9Ta4nCsf

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).
