This page has a tool to create a Firefox extension (.xpi) from a greasemonkey script.
Gmail’s new version rolled out for me today, and first thing I noticed that it had reset my gmail chat config (basically I had switched off gmail chat), my greasemonkey scripts were broken and I had a firebug extension warning on top.
While I have no gripe about greasemonkey, resetting gmail chat setting means I’ve to check rest of my settings to be sure anything else is not broken.
New version seems quicker, with additional options in “More Actions” menu and updated “Contacts” section.
Apparently, Firefox deletes profile files permanently without moving them to trash first. I tried using “Free Undelete” to recover my profiles (which were in a non-standard location in first place – somewhere on my H: drive). Most of the files were recovered but my bookmarks were all gone, along with a few of my Firefox extensions.
A small greasemonkey script to get direct link to a quote on IMDb’s “memorable quotes” page. This script creates a “#” with a link to corresponding quote.
Firefox has been gaining browser market share really fast, it seems. January statistics are 31% for Firefox compared to 42.3% for IE6 and 13.3% for IE7. Even though Firefox has its share of issues/bugs (features 🙂 ), and I like IE7’s beautiful rendering of fonts, I would love to see Firefox gaining some more market and mind share.
I need one Firefox extension/greasemonkey script to add an option to open xls/doc links directly in Google docs & spreadsheets. This is something Google itself should be providing like they do in Gmail. Perhaps, I’ll write one myself in case I can’t find it.
[Update]– Whooaa! Same day Google releases its Firefox toolbar (beta) with this exact same functionality I’m looking for and have blogged. Now, is it just one wish a day, or – I want to be king 😀 , please.
