When I first looked at this extension some months ago I couldn't figure out what meaningful use it might have. The Uppity icon sat on my toolbar unused for the longest time until one day, when attempting to view a web site that wouldn't load, I had the idea to get it to do so by going up the directory one level. Just as I was about to manually backspace on the URL I remembered I had an extension that did that sort of thing. What was it? .... oh yeah, Uppity. With a couple of quick clicks I magically had that web site load. Since that time I have used Uppity on numerous occasions, and while it doesn't always work to open stubborn web sites often times it does. Uppity is just another one of those simple add-ons that isn't all that noteworthy when examined individually, but when used in conjunction with dozens of other simple extensions, helps makes Firefox the superior browser it is.
