How did you upgrade this to 0.9.4.3? The link here _downgraded_ me to a very old version, 0.7.4. It also wiped out all my settings for the extension. In fact if I hover over the download button, and read the whole long URL, it clearly points to version 0.7.4. I also couldn't find the current version on the developer's own page.

This extension is critical to my workflow. It's also been the biggest PITA of any extension I use, year after year, often wiping out its own preferences. But this "upgrade" to an ancient version is the absolute pits!

Again -- if it worked for you -- specifically, _how_ did you get version 0.9.4.3? Thanks.

New version works only on Fx 36 or above

Please for any bug visit the page at github https://github.com/dafizilla/firefox-viewsourcewith/issues

The version 0.9.4.3 works only on Fx 36 because Mozilla changed some api that no longer works.

The settings wipeout is strange because VSW doen't delete it only write, please check your profile folder to see if VSW setting file is here

It used to be must-have, now it's not working. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work anymore. On recent FF update VSW cleared the list of editors and there is no way of adding new one. After picking path and setting the name it's not stored. The list stays empty. Any working alternative?

Too bad author abandoned it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon was one of the best addons but it's a shame that it no longer works because the author has abandoned the project. Really bad!

Where are the code example? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I went to the forums and I see no examples of how and where to put code to launch a program. There is no real information on the web site to either.

Unfairness Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on is excellent on providing the Edit with.. functionality from Internet Explorer and also extending it to atomic parts of the viewing website. It's a shame that Mozillla Add-On page didn't get updates from v0.9.1.1 all the way to v0.9.4.1 inclusive. Most users doesn't know about the project on Sourceforge so they didn't get updates, as a result it stopped working for newer Firefox versions, leading to unfair negative reviews on this page. Version 0.9.4.2 finally appeared here, but it was late to save the lost reputation of this add-on. As fate is not always fair with humans, so it isn't always fair with software products.

Too bad author abandoned it... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I used to use this addon very frequently but it's a shame that it no longer works on new versions of FF and the author has abandoned the project. Uninstalling...

Very nice but with FF15 I'm having the same problems. I'm now using the "Web Developer Extension" addon that also includes sourceview functionality and many other features.

Since Firefox 15 this great add-on is broken.
I hope the Author will fix this as soon as possible. I need this add-on.

Good but extra option would be useful Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for that good add-on, it is very useful but can be more,
You know, most developers are using offline testing for their system (such as Xamp,Wamp,ISS...) and when we are testing our codes in browser we usually want to edit source code directly.
Your add-on copies source file in "temp. directory" and open from there (so there is no chance to edit and save back original files in localhost) but if there is an option (if file is located in localhost, open from there) to allow for editing original file, then this add-on becomes awsome..
Thanks for your effort again.

Please RTFM

This is well documented on ViewSourceWith wiki

Relaltive path Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I use FF 3.6 and VSW 0.7.4
Option "Use path relative to profile" doesn't work if profile and editor on different disks (on Windows).
"normal" path was, for example:
D:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
and relative
\D:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
first backslash creates preview
F:\AppData\Firefox\D:\Program Files\Notepad++\notepad++.exe
and of course editor won't launch :(

VSW should use relative path to firefox.exe, not to profile dir, and the path should starts with ".." (unix-style) instead of "\"

PS. sorry for my terrible english :)

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@Rico La Fonda, I just downloaded latest version (0.8.1.1) today and it's working fine with Firefox 5.0.1 and EditPad.

I include plain text files as well as html files in my website and this plugin is just great for offline editing of plain text files before refreshing them in Firefox (which also displays them). Maybe this is an unintended use, but sure works well for me. Of course its main purpose is to edit your html source code in your favorite editor while viewing in FF (after refreshing, of course).
