ChromEdit Plus ChromEdit Plus

Easily edit user files in Firefox & Thunderbird

ChromEdit Plus is a re-write of ChromEdit... Plus some added features:

 Open the Chrome Folder, Profile Folder, Install/Program Folder & the File Manager.

 I've Added a "Restart" button - One on the CEP window and one for the toolbar.

 The "Open In A Tab" checkbox has been moved to the Options window. Or...
Left click the toolbar button - opens in a floating window, middle click - opens in a tab.

 For ease of use, ChromEdit Plus reopens in the last tab open when closed.

 ChromEdit Plus has been upgraded to "Save" files in the UTF-8 format.

 The prefs.js tab is hidden by default in the Options window.
Please view the Screenshot below for more information.

 Open all from the "Tools" menu and/or 24px & 16px toolbar buttons.

ChromEdit Plus Frequently asked questions:

Q: I've installed ChromEdit Plus. How do I actually use it?
A: For a large collection of code... go to: MozillaZine Forum - Post your userFiles!
I'd recommend joining the MozillaZine forums for easy sharing of code and ways of use.
IMHO... Learning how to use the DOM Inspector is your best option for hacking Firefox!

A: NO! If you wish to translate any of my extensions into your own language...
Feel free to do so. NOTICE... Post them on your own website... in your own language.
