Dreditor for Firefox

Submitted by timmillwood on Thu, 23/11/2017 - 09:33

Last week I switch from years of using Chrome to Firefox 57 because of all the hype about it being fast, and that I'd been suffering from Chrome using up to 10GB of ram. The big issue I hit though was I didn't have Dreditor and there seemed to be no way to install it. I decided to go on using Firefox without Dreditor, and loading Chrome every time I needed to do an in depth patch review.

Then yesterday I saw the latest Commit Strip cartoon, where in a reply @williambl suggested Chrome Store Foxified for converting Chrome plugins to Firefox. First thing I thought was to try the Dreditor Chrome plugin, and it worked.

This morning Berdir suggested "maybe someone will release that thing as a public extension". So I went digging on addons.mozilla.org and found I could download the XPI file Chrome Store Foxified created during the conversion.

Yep! I've been a Foxified Dreditor user for a couple of months already.
With mentors we were planning to do the same task, so thank you for doing it!

Have you updated the Contributors section of d.org?

I've been using FF nightly for years. And when dreditor stopped working (about 12 months ago) I've been forced to use chrome again, just for reviews.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks! It seems to work well, and I'd like to switch back to FF too. However, too many of the extensions I need aren't available in Quantum (Firefox 57) just yet. As soon as these are back (this plug-in certainly helps), I'll dump Chromium.
