Fantastic - Can't wait for FF3 support Rated 4 out of 5 stars
As an OS X 10.5 Emacs user, this plugin works very well. I use it with Twiki at home and Confluence at work. Thanks for making my life easier.
I just downloaded FF3 b2 and it states that it is incompatible. I understand the reasoning -- this release is so new.
To the author: I hope you continue your support well into FF3.
I was spending most of my IAT time on a newer version that won't have the memory leak in it. It should also perform better.
Since it was obvious that FF3 was coming quickly, I took some time to fix the "stable" version and bump it's support to (currently) 3.0pre (the current max). I'll also bump it to 3.0 as soon as I can do that (AMO only allows certain versions).
Could be better Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a good plugin EXCEPT: It installs an EDIT button for the text window, and right-clicking the button brings up a menu of file types to edit. One would think choosing from the menu would start up different editors depending on the file type. Nonetheless, the application only allows one editor. Apparently it just uses this editor for different kinds of files. The developer suggests supplying a script or CMD file to do more complex things, but I think the application should allow individual editors to be associated with individual extensions.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2).
Totally indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Been using this extension for the better part of a year. On Win XP, I use it in conjunction with Notepad++ as the editor, and aspell. Notepad++ uses aspell spelling dictionaries if installed. For me, this means that I can use one single spellcheck dictionary rather than having a separate one in my text editor and in my browser. My editor for Firefox is the same one I use for everything else, so in this way, It's all Text is extremely handy. If there's anything I hate is having multiple installations of things that really should all be integrated. Next to Adblock Plus and Nosquint, this is my favourite extension.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2).

Perfekt für CMS-Admins Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Das ist soo geil! Mit dem Tool kann man perfekt CMS-Inhalte o.ä. bearbeiten. Mit rechtem Mausklick und "open as" sogar mit korrekter html-Auszeichnung.
Great! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Works as advertised! Great time-saver and powerful extension. I was looking for something that emulated vi/vim in a textarea, but this is even better! Appreciate developer's sense of humor as well.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2).
It's All Good! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very, very useful, and its 'debugging' option made me laugh.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2).
Amazing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Awesome extension. I could use your "remove all bugs" option for all my PHP projects ;-) Can I have your babies?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.2).
Wow, it has hot keys too! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Finally I discovered that Doctor What added hot keys to It's All Text too. Very nice.
Using It's All Text and Emacs I can now easily add XHTML code to my blog comments etc. (Sometimes they are removed, but that is e-life.)
Thanks very much for It's All Text.
Perfect Performance for OS X User! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I love the way that this Add-on functions for Firefox on OS X. You would think that this is how the browser should behave natively!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.8.0).
Wonderful Tool Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is a great boon to anyone who does any type of writing on the web. The ability to edit and keep responses saved in MS Word is positively joyful. Well done.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3).
A miracle extension, but ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3).
As the author wrote, "It's all text" is really a "miracle extension"! Extremely useful for those who want an "real editor", such as vi or emacs, for entering text in "text areas", and for using webmail. In the past I used to avoid webmail at all costs until I discovered two extensions mozex and "it's all text".
I have been using "it's all text" under debian, ubuntu, windows xp without any problems, however more recently I have miserably failed to make it work under Mac OS X. To configure the vim editor for "it's all text", I have tried
open -a Vim (which works from a bash shell)
/usr/bin/open -a Vim
In every single case I received an error message, usually that the path was incorrect, even thought the path does exist.
However regex works without problem under Mac OS X. It was not able to find at the usual site for firefox extensions, but I found it at http://mozex.mozdev.org/
This is the Nuts! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Writing this review to you using Vim is a great joy. This add-on is by
far the most useful I have gotten. Thanks much,
Sweeeeeeeet Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Haven't been using it for long, but this plugin will probably save me at least 2 hours of work in the next few days! Very nice!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3).
Outstanding Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a wonderful little add-on. Text boxes never offer any serious editing tools beyond copy, cut and paste. Did you ever have a lot to say and tried to type into a cramped little text box? It must be what my dentist goes through every day. I have tested this with Boxer text editor and it works just fine. In fact, this little review is being typed in Boxer. I think this add-on is magic. Don't know how I ever lived without it.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.3).
Excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been looking for a simpler, more straightforward method for formatting posts in a forum that uses a mix of BBcode and XHTML tags; none of the Fx extensions I've tried could do it just right for all of the tags. Using this extension with RJ TextEd, however, works great. I just had to put .html first in the File Extensions list (and restart Fx) to make it the default file type for the editor (so that it will properly enable the Preview function in the editor), and it works perfectly (for my needs). Coolness.
Aug2009: updated to latest with Fx 3.5.1 - still works great!
Great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works great and is very useful, especially on websites were text fields are too small sized!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1).
Nice, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Very good idea, and looks useful. Unfortunately it won't play nice with some greasemonkey scripts that are designed for quick replying and editing of forum posts. When installed together the post always reverts to 'undefined'.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1).
gorgeous Rated 4 out of 5 stars
very nice work, couldn't find any alternative add-on that nice (and i tried because i thought this one doesn't function, see below).
a few tips from me: at first, after installation, it kept complaining it can't start my text editor, i had specified the full path and -under windows- the binary certainly needed not be set executable. also tried other editors but with no success. i don't know at what point it started working but now it does (i assume after restarting firefox once more).
my main use case is editing wiki content using a syntax-aware editor, and as may be the case with your editor as well, mine detects the filetype by file extension, so in my editor i've associated ".wiki" with wiki syntax highlighting. afterwards in the add-on settings i replaced ".txt" with ".wiki" - thus text will be stored locally with a ".wiki" extension and my editor will detect the filetype properly.
finally, there seems to be no help available anywhere. ok, haven't really tried to find it but for sure it's not easy to find if it exists. i'd be interested in what some of the settings mean in detail.
Very original! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Seriously, this is one of the most original and useful plugins. I use this on a regular basis and don't know how I lived without it! Thank you so much!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.0).
