Social Media For Firefox 3 is Near Complete


Social Media For Firefox 3 is Near Complete

We are getting close on have a Firefox 3 compatible version of Social Media for Firefox. We are sorry it wasn’t ready with the FF 3 launch but it is coming and it is going to be sick. We have taken the opportunity to add some upgrades. Here are some quick features we are working on if you happen to have any additions you think would make it be an even better tool we are all about it and please add in the comments.

We are looking into
> Showing Thumb Up, Down and Review Counts for StumbleUpon and let you choose which combo to display
> Adding Mixx and Sphinn
> Letting You Choose Which Sites to Have Displayed in the Bar
> Adding some really cool social news hubs to be able to scan the content but I don’t want to release the sites yet as we are testing and I don’t want to get people hopes up.
> We are thinking about Taking out they have made some upgrades so we are testing but if we release right away it will be out as it never works and their API is not supported very well. We can always add back in.

Again any other ideas please send them over the tool has had near 100,000 downloads and we plan on making it even better.

    Are you guys really picking up the project again? This is quite the coincidence. About a week ago I got tired of waiting for fixes so I went ahead and fixed the add-on as well as adding support for Firefox 3. Delicious also works fine.

    This is your tool and I’d be happy to “hand it back” to you. I was just bummed that it wasn’t being supported (last update was from 2007, no?).

    My fixed release is mentioned here:

    Please note that I did comment on this blog and e-mail you guys asking about the add-on and didn’t get a response so I figured add-on support was dead.

      You will be hearing from my lawyers…. J/K Totally kidding.

      Some people emailed me and asked me if I was livid. I am not, but honestly I couldn’t find any communication from you besides some blog comments about download problems on an old version. I have my phone number on our site too not just email. I would of loved to have gotten a call, this was my brain child and it was and is a very popular tool.

      We didn’t do much in terms of support cause we never really got that many ideas or support requests sent to us.

      But FF3 compatibility is an obvious must. We should of just tweaked it to work with that as is, but I wanted to release it with a bang with all new sites and things we added that we are super excited about.

      So totally rad you fixed and updated it for FF3. We will be releasing our new version very soon.

      I will put a link to your version for now on our site for a recommended download in the interim.

    Any suggestions on how to not confuse the community? I think I should just update my post and point to you with a note saying a new version is on its way. If people are willing to go through the uninstall / re-install process they can do so and if not, they can just wait for your official release. Sound good?

    By the way, the Firefox 3 fix is a one-liner in the chrome.manifest file. Took me a while to find that fix so hopefully that’ll save you some time.

    Totally agree we are finishing up with Some SU changes and will have something up and ready I will email you.

    Thanks man appreciate it.

    I’m excited for the updated version. SU is one of my favorites and I look forward to the thumbs up/down info. I’d also be interested in a cool and updated tutorial (possibly video) that shares how to best use the new tool most effectively. I’ve seen some good traffic come from YouTube and other video sites and think that could get you out there to a more broad audience (if you haven’t done this already). Look forward to notice when it all comes together.
