I have just recently installed Firefox, and would like to know where to get the BB Code extension.

I went here: https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/morei...ication=firefox

But there sems to be a controversy as to whether or not it works with Firefox ver. 1.5.0.1
As suggested, I visited the authors website and experienced trouble installing it.
Here: http://jedbrown.net/1.0/mozilla/extensions/

I have installed other Firefox extensions without any problems. *Shrug

Ok I went to the authors website again and allowed his website. Then supposedly the BB code extension was installed.

But where is it?
It shows in my Firefox extensions as having been installed.
And yes I have re-started Firefox.

I think there is a compatibility problem with the latest FF version and BBCodeXtra, Scarlett, and that an update to the extension is needed.

Oh ok I have it now I think. It shows in a "right click" when in the reply box. :thumbsup:



So... those who have Firefox ver. 1.5.0.1 need to install it from http://jedbrown.net/1.0/mozilla/extensions/

Thanks, Scarlett. I use Mozilla 1.7.12, so I hadn't pursued downloading for FF.
