Im looking for a specific add-on that would save me ALOT of time and confusion and help me with my forgetfulness....

What I am looking for is an add-on that would allow me to edit text in a webpage to add/remove specific sentences or lists that I have already done or checked. This would save me a bunch of time and effort when I'm scrolling through a page and I'm looking up information on certain things and allow me to leave notes behind on stuff I need to go back and look at further. Currently I print stuff off so I can do this but in the browser would make life much more simple.

I’m not sure of any off the top of my head that will do all you want it to, but I thought this one might help a little to keep track of things.

Highlights 0.9.4

Highlights is an ultra-light-weight (13 KB) multi-color highlighting tool. Highlight selected text on web pages with a right-click. Highlights are saved in a user-defined folder and saved highlights are automatically loaded when page is revisited.

While searching around and reading some comments about this I stumbled on a couple of others that are stronger that remember settings and stuff that you decide to remove. It's called Yet Another Remove It Permanently. I downloaded them both because there are times I can use both styles.

That's probably, because I've been addicted to Mozilla's products since Mosaic came out around 1993 :)

The highlights one seems cool too but I couldn't install it because I'm useing 3.5

Highlights add-on works fine here on 3.5.2. Very handy.

Remove It Permanently - definitely, one of the best add-ons. It feels so good to get rid of all unnecessary advertisement frames on any web page. I love it.

It won't let me download it from mozilla's page using 3.5.1 or 3.5.2 because it says it is for versions 1.0-3.0. Is there maybe some trick to letting me do that I just haven't discovered?

BTW, there is another excellent add-on, MR Tech Toolkit: https://addons.mozil...refox/addon/421, which gives you a bunch of wonderful options, and one of them is its ability to disable version check, so you can download, and install any add-on. Number of them may be listed as not compatible, but they still work.

Now wait just a second. Are you telling me ::pause for theatrical purposes:: that there is an add-on that lets you install any add-on regardless of version of Firefox? Am I the only one that sees the humor in that?

I guess the reason I'm laughing as I type this is that why in the heck is version check there to begin with then? Would it not make sense to just eliminate version check altogether then, and when you install an add-on it either works or it doesn't. Am I making any sense?

Well, not really, because some ancient add-ons surely won't work.
Mr. Tech becomes handy, especially with new FF upgrades, like going from 3.5.1 to 3.5.2, for instance.
At the update time, FF will check for add-ons compatibility. FF really doesn't know, if the add-on will work, or not. It just checks for add-on version stamp.
In most cases, with minor updates like this one, all add-ons will work, but if FF spots some add-on with a version stamp not mentioning 3.5.2, it'll say: incompatible.

As I went to the garage to support my cancerous habit, I had a feeling you would say that. I guess I didn't explain my self the best. I totally see what you are saying, its not so much the compatibility that is checked, but as you say the "version stamp" is checked. And this is exactly what baffles me, or is what I don't understand.

Hmmm, maybe it's because Firefox is constantly updating its versions, but I'm thinking of other games and softwares. If I try to install something on Vista or 7, and it is only compatible with XP, don't I just get an error message or code of some sort? Maybe a "Could not finish installation, not compatible with Vista" error?

Eliminate the version check, and check for compatibility, not version stamp. Are you following me? That is the easiest way I can explain it. Is that hard to do? Would compatibility check take to long each time Firefox updates? Just asking to make conversation, or as the Forum Title says, "Geek Talk".

Edit: As in check for code compatibility I guess, not just the single version stamp. I'm not a programmer and far from it lol. So just put me in my place should you need too. :)
