My little pony.: I know I could learn html, but is it really beyond someone to make the key-stroke combos to build links and the like work in Firefox? I'm not even asking for buttons, though that would be great.

I'd be happy to do this if it's a matter of time. I implemente the code on my site; it's not very different (if at all), just a matter of allowing Moz variations.

Supposed to be "But wait:" -- all the ass-holery after that was right.

For a measley $2500, you can own www.eait.com. Huh? $2500?! And here I thought that you just made that word up. Oh yeah, back to the point of this thread. I too would love that feature for us Firefox users. It's bad enough that we have to think in Russian just to be able to use it.

Firefox, that is. Just to use Firefox. Fuck! Where's my booze?

is this what you guys are looking for?

Well, that's cool, but I still want the Mefi-style buttons for the Firefox proletariat. Don't try to pawn off someone else's extension on us to keep we teeming masses from your doors, capitalist running dog.

Might be, goddam, if I could figure out how come it won't install like every other XPI file I've tried before.

bill, I've had trouble with XPIs a few times (and I think it's often due to one or more extensions I've installed). You can usually get around it by saving the XPI locally and then doing File > Open File (CTRL + O).

forget Mefi-style buttons particularly for those of us who aren't Mefites. How about some Spofi-style buttons that are available on Spofi when using IE but not firefox?

Yerfatma, for whatever reason, when I do that FF treats it as a text file and simply opens a blank tab. Uggh.

How about some Spofi-style buttons that are available on Spofi when using IE but not firefox? How 'bout one of those pretty, standards-compliant WYSIWYG controls that works in FF and not IE?

bill, I usually backup my bookmarks and smoke Firefox when it gets to that point. Save your profile directory if you want, but that's usually what does the corrupting. Or you can open FF in safemode with a commandline switch. Which I forget. So that's helpful. Do you have the tabbrowser extention installed? I can't live without it, but I find that's the source of a lot of problems. If you have it, try turning it off and see if you can install an XPI. It might be how tbe is handling the opening of new windows/ files.
