undoclosetab for Firefox 1.5.0.*

undoclosetab by Dorando is a very cool extension that makes you able to recall a closed tab (obviously). Unfortunately, it doesn’t work for Firefox, out recently. So I repackaged the enhanced version by Turonah so that Firefox doesn’t cry.

Works for me. Try at own risk.

Download: undoclosetab 20060503.

Update, brought to you by davitof: Tab Mix Plus does the same, is Firefox 1.6 compatible, and has a wealth of other tab-related useful functions.

last.fmCode: Firefox extension to manage’s boards code easily

or, How I Got to Become a Firefox Extension Developer. 🙂

What’s that ?

Getting tired of typing [-a-r-t-i-s-t-] etc… on‘s journals & forums for the nth time, I quickly hacked another Firefox extension I was using, BBCodeXtra, to make last.fmCode.

It allows you select a type & select a string (“mll” for instance) and right-click>last.fmCode>User and you get “[user]mll[/user]”. Idem for an artist name, a tag name etc… You can play with the clipboard submenu too, and also the eXtra one.

I left the BBCode there, so bolding, making links, changing colors, etc. just need a few clicks.

Some Greasemonkey scripts for

OK, I just took the time to try Greasemonkey, and it’s cool as I expected. I started fiddling whith some scripts downloaded at the -well made- central greasemonkey scripts repository, and made the following:

  1. with Google
  2. with Amazon
  3. with Allmusic
  4. titles with Google
  5. titles with Allmusic

You may download them on

I’m quite happy with them now (though Amazon clutters the charts a tad too much IMHO).

Many thanks to kepp for his help in tracking the glitches & providing solutions.

‘View in Firefox’ for IE

A nice little app to allow quick viewing in Firefox of pages you browse with IE. Was quoted in Fred Langa’s excellent newletter.
Note: I recently discovered FirefoxView, that does the same, but is better written (better error handling, etc.) and has the “Open link in Firefox” feature that was in my todo list.
Making it a Firefox extension makes sense, too (except that if you uninstall Firefox, ghost registry entries will remain, but the case is pretty unlikely if you installed this exension :).
In conclusion, I advise you to use FirefoxView rather than ‘View in Firefox’ for IE. I’ll probably discontinue further development of ‘View in Firefox’ for IE, unless someone begs me to. 🙂

Edit 2006-02-28: IE Tab is even smarter than FirefoxView. Check it out!

Edit 2007-02-26: Tried to build the equivalent that calls Opera instead of FF. I didn’t test it so View in Opera for IE v0.1please do and report.
