AutoCopy

Add send-link in the pop menu Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The add on is excellent. Use everyday. It can be better too if add a "send-link" call in the pop menu. This is very useful for firefox user sending the copied contents to friends. :>

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2). 

ViewInFirefox (formerly FirefoxView)

Fix for IE 9 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This is a good add on that allow quick switch from the Internet explorer to firefox . However, the author does not have updated it for IE 9. Here is how we can do a fix manually.

Thanks Andrew for sharing the solution.
In Windows 7, search for the file firefoxviewpage.html which is stored in a folder something like below :
C:\Users\Kevin\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ba9w9cyr.default\extensions\{5D558C43-550F-4b12-84AB-0D8ABDA9F975}\ ,
where Kevin is my user profile name.

Edit the html file using a Editor, say Frontpage.
Switch to the HTML tab, replace the complete source by followings and saved. Restart IE9 and you are fixed.

<HTML>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" defer>

function runFirefox(location) {
var ws = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
try {
ws.Run("firefox \"" + location + "\"");
} catch (fireerr) {
try {
ws.Run("mozilla \"" + location + "\"");
} catch (err) {
}
}

}

var oWindow = window.external.menuArguments.top;
if (oWindow != null) {
runFirefox(oWindow.document.URL);
// runFirefox(oWindow.location);
}
</SCRIPT>
</HTML>

Hi,
This addon is excellent and meet my need. Some argue that using a simple right-click &gt; Bookmark this Page is sufficient,
but it is always that the page is full on context sensitive shortcuts that you spend time finding a place to do a right click. Sometimes you will click into their advertisements too. :&gt;

Hi,
I always bookmark several tabs (but not all tabs) at a time.
And I need to change where it is stored ( the folder dropdown box ).
So, can you auto set the folder to the one previously chosen?
