Doom9 Toolbar Extension for Firefox [v3.1]

Presenting a toolbar extension for Firefox (hope everyone is using Firefox by now ) which should make your navigation around Doom9 easier and also give instant access to your UserCP, Profile etc amongst many other things :-



For download and install, go here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2670/ and click on the 'Install Now' button there.



Initially, I wrote a cruder form of this extension for my own use. As I started using it, I figured others could also benefit from this. So I made few more changes/additions and made it more presentable in its current form.

If you find any bugs, broken links etc. please post here/PM me and let me know. I will try to fix it for the next build of this as soon as I get some time to work on it (something which I don't have much these days ). The next version will also have a built-in search bar to search the site.

Please also feel free to put forward suggestions and criticisms. I am also looking for help in the way of getting some good icon resources. Finding the right icon for the right option took me the most amount of time and nearly drove me nuts. If you think any icon is ugly and can suggest a good replacement, I will gladly take it. A note to the software developers of the tools featured in the extension - if you have a good 16x16 icon with a transparent background handy for your tool, please pass them onto me.

Enjoy! Hope you will find it useful.

Pretty impressive! One feature request, would it be possible to be able to use middle click to follow one of the links in a new tab? It's possible for 'normal' links, and I miss the ability :P

Not trying to sound negative - quite contrary - but does this do something that can't be solved with bookmarks?

BTW, works fine with current 2.0 nightly build too.

@check, I will see if I can add that.

@sysKin, Not at the moment, but that would mean you bookmarking every single link in the whole site to match the functionality of the toolbar.

for me is just the opposite !

come from over one year of firefox (till 1.5.0) then switch to Opera. Never complain !

I knocked up some direct links to the various Doom9 Forum threads some time ago, which I've just tidied up....

Okay, it's not nearly as sophisticated as unskinnyboy's FireFox offering.... but whatever floats yer boat




Cheers

Not anymore. I have made the extension available for all platforms now, even though I could test it in only Windows and Linux. If someone encounters some bug in other platforms like BSD, MacOSX, Solaris or even Linux for that matter, let me know.

Just being curious about this : are the menu items fed by an xml rss feed or something ? or simply hard-coded ?

You saw me coming right ? What happens if the forum gets reorganized ?

From your first post I would suppose "hard-coded" since you mention dead links ...

Nice idea indeed anyway !
Good job

@DarkZell666, It is hardcoded at the moment. Knowing Doom9, you would need more than a good reason to get a new *sub-forum* let alone rearrange the whole forum. Hence I don't anticipate any drastic changes. If there is, I might just go in and change the code. In the unlikely case that the forum keeps changing a lot, RSS feed it will be.

But actually, thank you for mentioning that. It gave me some other ideas to ruminate over..
