  • I've been refactoring that extension for a long time now (part of the reason being that I started without any clue about extension development). I kind of want to drop some features I don't particularly like, but I'm not sure how useful or not they are to others.

    So I wonder, which parts of MozEX do you use?

    • So you did it! Thanks! :-)

      I edit text areas with it all the time. I also use it to view the source with vim.

      A while back I was also using it to send emails... and that's it :-)

      Editing a text area with vim can be really really helpful, you know? :-)

      • Yeah, that's its primary functionality of course and that's what I use it for, all the time.

        What I am thinking of getting rid of is all the link handling stuff; that can all be done without an extension, although it requires about:config hacking and external glue scripts to make it work well.

        I would like the extension to do one thing and do it well and I don't feel like supporting all that extraneous code for the link handlers. Plus it hugely complicates the configuration dialog and… bleah.
