This is a great plugin.
In a simple muse movement, I can switch between a local proxy A, a local proxy B, or no proxy at all (essentially when taking the machine out of either company or home network)
Too bad that the proxyselector icon seems to hide itself somewhere for now, in FF 29. But 'm confident that either "this will be repaired soon" or that ... I stumble upon the thing where it is hidden. In that case, I hope to remember posting that here.
Which was quite soon. After posting the above lines, I "found it" ... almost in the TOP of FF29's new "more tools" menu. I was so sure had "looked everywhere", so I suppose that just speaking out what went wrong twisted my fingers/eyes/brains enough to go look where it was.
This is a big relief.
Yes, this seemed to be brokn when FF updated to version 25. But ... I’m wrong … There are two buttons who aren’t grey, and when I click either one ( "Text Pieces" or "Web style" ) the red boxes come back, and the EDIT buttons are active again. Hey, THAT could better go on the Review page, with 5*****, of course !A GREAT extension, and either it reaired itsel, or that one click on "Text Pieces" repaired it. Either way: it sems NOT to be broken by the firefox update. HHThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.2.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Four stars for now: it really IS easier than HackTheWeb (HTW).
Before FF 9 (or so) we had Aardvark. But that stopped working. Then HTW revived it. I mainly use it to "I-solate a block" before actually printing "the part of the page that holds what I need"
For that, Print Edit feels easier.
with HTW it is a multi-step process, and I ca still make the font size bigger right before actually printing. I don't find that option -yet- in Print Edit.
So yes, it is easier to do the bics, but HTW lets you add an extra step. Hence not the "maximum" stars but VERY GOOD
I found that TableTools2 suddenly had disappeared.
Turns out that in "synchronizing extensions" between two machines, I had Book Text Mark" extension enabled.
Apparently there is an incompaibility with TT2 not showing up in the context menu any more.
Since I don't need to bookmark "a text within a long page" too often,I disabled BTM and ... TT2 is back.
It doesn't do "a lot" but does right what it needs to do.
Well, my only "anoyance" is when the web presents something "as if it were a table" and the right-click doesn't show TT2
But ... those times I asked the "view source", I noticed these tables weren't coded as "table" but as a bunch of <div> html.
Maybe that is modern html for tables, but it would not sort or filter.
On "java blocks" it seems to ... well, they are blocks, aren't they? As in blocking.
i guess TableTools isn't meant to do that kind of extras.
Maybe I 'll learn to use the "being not there" of TT2 in the context menu as a sign that I'm looking at an "advanced page".
But it is VERY nice on real table stuff, and there is still plenty of that on the web.
Thank you for a GOOD tool
