Version 1.11 16.4 kB Works with Firefox 1.0 - 1.5.0.*

Displays permanently your live IP address on Firefox's status bar. By default the extension checks for IP changes approximately every 17 minutes (providing Firefox is still running). Users can also look for changes in the IP on demand and on schedule.

Added Features in Version 1.11:
. When user clicks on the IP field on FF's status bar the extension checks if IP has changed and if so it displays it.
. Under the Tool menu item, an entry called Live IP Address has been added which lets the user specify the frequency (in minutes) where IP will be checked for changes.

Known Limitations: If even by firing up Firefox the IP status field stays at "Retrieving your IP address..." and does not update, then either you have reached the 300th time (per day) checking for your IP (this is the upper limit set by www.showmyip.com) or that www.showmyip.com site is offline (try load http://www.showmyip.com/xml/ if you cannot get there then the extension cannot get your IP).

The next version of Live IP Address will include more IP finders to overcome the 300th time upper limit.

Version 1.0 10.2 kB Works with Firefox 0.9 - 1.5.0.*
