I've a suggestion for the add-ons site: make a link where all of the add-ons show up on one page. I don't exactly like having to click on each individual add-on category group when checking to see if any new add-ons have been added and would rather there be an option for all of them to show up at once. Less clicks; less hassles.

Also, sorry to be a pain, but: do you know if MinimizeToTray Revived will soon be up on the add-ons site? According to a user of this forum there's a simple fix to make that add-on work. It, along with ePubReader, are the only add-ons I use that don't work in the latest version of Pale Moon. I can live without ePubReader as I'd rather read eBooks on an actual physical eReader anyway. But I quite miss MinimizeToTray Revived and would be super duper happy to see it up there. (Heck, if I saw it up there I'd be so happy I'd consider donating to Pale Moon. But I can't guarantee that as I'm quite the poor bugger)

Agreed. I myself check from time to time the listed addons and that's a pain to check every category.

We do have a search.

Search do not allow to see the list of all addons ; and you can't know if the addon is here or not before using search. For one it's ok ; if you want to review what is available that way, good luck...

Here is the hidden page with a simple site map on it.. But I will have to see what I can do to provide the requested functionality.

http://addons.palemoon.org/gamma-25/

For now I am still recovering from this plague or death or something :P I am getting better though so hopefully soon there will be a huge surge in add-on site additions.

That will work. Thanks comrade T! Now, no more of those infamous Mooner coder's wild orgies, at least until you recover from your gleep.

To use an oft-used cliche, "Get Well Soon". Being sick with anything sucks. I'm 47 and a few months ago I had Pink Eye. I never had it before, and it was definitely the worse thing I felt. I've been stuck in bed with the Flu before and I considered having Pink Eye to be worse than that.. I am glad that that you are getting better.

Thanks for Quick Translator! That's a very oft-used addon for me that stopped working with PM25. Very happy to see it back and running. I see the AMO page says "New 2.0a1 version is available in Development Channel", will that be updated? Also, hoping to see Babylon Word Search fixed as well.

The add-on is virtually abandoned. Also that add-on is junk. It is clunky, slow, and hard to use. But i don't get to make decisions on what add-ons you guys use...

Do you mean QT? Or Babylon? I use both extensively and haven't had any issues. Both are very useful and unobtrusive and I haven't been able to find better alternatives for what they do.

So the Dactyl folks are not interested in supporting Pentadactyl for us. https://code.google.com/p/dactyl/issues/detail?id=1223

It's a good add-on and MIT licensed, so I have a fork over at github that I'll try to keep up with. https://github.com/jphustman/dactyl

It's not working currently but the motivation is here.

Any news regarding Foxy Proxy? Maybe dev response or if someone is already working on pseudo-static version?

That's the 2nd time you've asked today. The Add-ons site administrator (Tobin) has to approve all the ones that users submit and he sets the priorities. I am sure more are coming, just not definite on what/when. Be patient.

Hehe, I'm sorry, actually I just realized that the first post (on morning) was on a "Solved" thread that no one might see anymore. That's why I decided to post here again (later on a same day), where it seems more appropriate.
It's not that I'm not patient, sorry if I left a wrong impression.

No problem, just that we can't really do anything to speed it along.

My real interest personally, for what it's worth, is in finding older, good, abandoned extensions that can be forked for Pale Moon. But generally not the kind that are most popular (such as google, youtube, video, download speeder-uppers, styling or anything flashy); but rather those that enhance the basic browser functions, especially privacy and security related functions. If anybody that can wants to help with that, PM me.
