Fangs for Firefox 3 available

Sorry for the delay. Here is an updated version (1.0.4) of Fangs for Firefox 3. Your previous version may not update automatically in which case you need to uninstall it, restart Firefox, and then download/install it from the Fangs project page.

A big thank you to Stuart Middleton who showed me the necessary steps to get rid of the annoying security warning that Firefox 3 displays for unsigned extensions.

    Thank you both for your work :)
    Fangs was on my list of plugin’s I needed updated before upgrading to FF3.

    Yes, thanks indeed! I will be giving Fangs props at a national conference for technology-minded librarians this fall.

    I think you should put your extension on the mozilla repository.

    Many thanks for this. I’ve been looking for something to give us an idea of how our sites would appear to someone using a screen reader. This is just what we needed.

    But why does Fangs always announce the browser as Internet Explorer – even though it’s a Firefox extension and therefore being used in Firefox?
