This version of the Web Developer extension fixes an issue where the ‘View Generated Source’ feature did not work, as well as combining the Firefox and Seamonkey versions of the extension into one build. The User Agent Switcher extension release should hopefully fix the problem with importing user agents in nested folders once and for all.
Apologies for the frequent updates, but hopefully these will be the final patch releases before the next major releases of the extensions.
Patch releases for both the Web Developer and User Agent Switcher extensions have been released. These releases add support for Firefox 3.5 to the Web Developer extension and fix some minor issues with the recent update to the User Agent Switcher extension—the full list of fixes can be found in the release notes.
In October I will be at the Webmaster Jam Session in Atlanta, speaking about using the Web Developer extension to develop and debug web sites in a session called Firefox Web Development. The dates for the event are October 3rd and 4th, and even if my session sounds dull there are a ton of other speakers so it should be well worth checking out.
Update: My presentation slides are now available.
Bizarrely (and rather embarrassingly) this is an almost identical post to my last post over 10 months ago. New versions of the Web Developer and User Agent Switcher extensions have been released. These releases are mainly to add support for the upcoming Firefox 3, but also contain a few other bug fixes.
And just like my last post I have redesigned my site—I think everything is working, but let me know if you see anything broken. Maybe I will actually write some posts describing some of the new features like I promised last time.
New versions of the Web Developer and User Agent Switcher extensions have been released. They are both patch releases fixing minor issues, as well as updating the extension download and update URLs to hopefully help with my bandwidth costs.
If you are reading this on chrispederick.com you will also see that I have redesigned my site. I am still working out some of the kinks so let me know if you see anything funky and look for some blog posts in the future describing some of the new features.
I am pleased to announce that version 1.1 of the Web Developer extension has been released. The complete list of new features and bug fixes can be found in the history with the biggest change being the replacement of the sidebar with something I am calling the “dashboard”.
The dashboard provides similar functionality to the sidebar in that it allows content to be displayed without hiding the page for features like ‘Edit CSS’ and ‘Edit HTML’. However, because it is a custom component it can now be used in Mozilla and Seamonkey (as well as still supporting Firefox and Flock), docked to any side of the screen and supports using multiple sidebar features at the same time through the use of tabs. For example, you can now ‘Edit CSS’ and ‘Edit HTML’ on the same page at the same time.
The localized build is still version 1.0.2 as I do not have any updated translations yet, but once I receive a few I will update the localized build. If you would like to help localize the extension please read the localization documentation.
Let me know if you see any problems, but as long as there are no major issues I will be uploading this version to Firefox Add-ons in the next few days.
All the work on chrispederick.com is distributed for free, but your donation allows me to continue my development and any amount is greatly appreciated.Donate
