This one is for the users of my Forum Filter add-on for Firefox!
As you may know, version 4 of Firefox is coming soon. You may not know that this new version of FF encompasses significant changes behind the scenes, and just about every add-on publisher needs to do some work to ensure that their add-ons will work with the new version.
Since I'll be working on the add-on to make it v4 compliant, now seems like a good time to ask my users if they have any suggestions for new and/or improved features for the Forum Filter!
(And BTW, if you plan to upgrade to Firefox 4, be aware that the current version of the Forum Filter WILL NOT WORK with that browser! I'll post on my profile and here on the forum when the v4 compatible Forum Filter is available - probably before the end of this month.)
Is there anything you would like to see in the next version of the add-on?
No promises, but I will take all suggestions into consideration...
Feature to snip or hide replies/threads from specific user ? In short, ignore button.

I have blocked Religion and Politics forums. Even though I can't see them, when someone starts a new thread in one of those, can you have the add-on make a nice sound....like BANG? Or maybe it can play a snippet of a song, like "another one bites the dust"
If I did that, you would have to put your computer on "mute" or the constant barrage of noise would drive you crazy :lol
I just installed both. I like the new FF, it's rather speedy.
I dressed up with a new spring persona and now I have the new updated filter. It already had those forums blocked for me, nice.
I like the option to block certain threads we may be tired of seeing. Thanks again Edweirdo!!
Yes! Or maybe a nice message saying something like
"You have just avoided another encounter with a moron!"
Compliance is really my main request as I've been using Firefox 4 for a while now
I wish I had access to my old computer. I'm on someone else's and can't install the handy plugin. Dang.
Wow this is just what I have been hoping for! Thank you so much! I no longer have to wade through the constant dead horses strewn about by religious and political topics. I really have become tired of seeing the never ending stream of "If you believe in this way you are an idiot" or "Your politician of choice is an idiot so you are too" threads. You are my hero Edweirdo!
the new block feature of a specific thread is nice! I just did my first block.

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...

Am I dense? I used to have Edweirdo's F.F. for Google Chrome but my comuter took a sh*t and now I can't get it, even on his profile page. Ideas?

I really wish we didn't have to see the sandpit on the main page of the forums, it used to be that you didn't see it unless you wanted to.
