Firefox Currency Converter – ViewMyCurrency 0.3891 (alpha) released

Tuesday, 21st February at 5:29 pm 8 comments

I’ve added a Feedback Wizard to make it easier for user to submit requests, bugs or general feedback. If you see something on a web-page that you want to comment on:

  • select the problem text (optional)
  • right-click on the ViewMyCurrency statusbarpanel and click ‘Give Feedback’
  • The wizard will prompt you for more information about the problem
  • When you click ‘Finish’ the wizard will open this blog and paste your comment in.
  • You must then click ‘Say it’ publish the comment.
Give Feedback wizard

Hopefully this wizard will save everybody time as I won’t have to keep emailing back to ask for more info.


  • Added: Give Feedback Wizard

Currency changes: (remove and add currency to get changes)

  • DDK default symbol is now ‘kr.’ rather than’kr’. Thanks Christian!
  • ‘bucks’ no longer treated as USD. For all those Milwaukee Bucks fans out there. Thanks Bob!

Minor changes:

  • Fixed spelling. Thanks KK
  • Fixed: Convert Text popupbar would not appear if nothing selected in webpage or clipboard. Thanks Jamie!
  • Fixed: The popupbar will never be taller than 5 rows
  • Fixed: Text was truncated with ‘…’ in the statusbarpanel. (Now using style to set width to 6 ems). Thanks Santi!

    hi, i wanted to inform you about a page, where VMC fails utterly:

    goto and click on “Brunch Club” (on the top, to the left). the problems seems to be that VMC interpretes ANY number as a US dollar amount.

    best regards, rh

    Dear RH, thanks for letting me know about the Brunch Club problem. It’s because there are $ symbols in the comments in the HTML. But there is no point in converting the comments. I should just ignore them.
    Added to the ToDo list.

    Hi Pheloxi. Thanks, who would have thought there were so many ways to write currencies. Added to ToDo list

    Hi Will,

    I posted the message on the ViewMyCurrency Mozzilla addon page about the conflict with Update Notifier Produces error ViewMyCurrency: Failed to find GUI element WILL_hideOrignal

    OK, I was using 0.38 version, so I uninstalled 0.38, restarted FF, installed 0.3891 from hamstersoup, restarted FF, installed Update Notifier, Restarted FF and all is well. No conflicts. Thanks Will
