Another Firefox Add On -Tired of clicking through pages?

Postby slomo007 » Tue Aug 09, 2005 8:38 pm

Meet, the antipaginator: https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/m ... php?id=853

Here's how it works: If you want to read a longer thread, say, 5 pages, just right click the thread title, and a menu item will be added to the popup menu for "antipagination". Then just click that and ALL of the pages in that thread will be opened at once. This means you don't have to wait for all 5 pages to load individually, and the conversation flows from post to post almost perfectly.

I've used Firefox for a long time and am just now finding out about some of these extensions. I have always used adblock, but beyond that I'm pretty much a newbie.

Edit: See below for correct instructions.

I forgot about ReloadEvery, I use that one and have for a while:

https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/m ... php?id=115

It's a simple one which will (if you tell it to) reload a web page based on a timer interval that you specify. I've used this one pretty often, even though you think you wouldn't.

The one time I remember using it (and loving it) was when I was waiting for my grades to post online (they said, around noon or something like that). Well, so that I could just chill and play video games while I waited, I enabled ReloadEvery for 3 seconds and it did all of my refreshing for me. Another very simple and easy to use add-on.

I'll post more if I find any really neat ones, I'll try to consolidate them in to this thread so that I don't create 5+ threads about them. O:-)

After you download it, just restart firefox. Then, come to the Cafe and find a thread that is 2 pages or longer. Open the thread (go to page 1) and then right click the "Next" page button on the bottom of the screen. Then click "Anti-Pagination" - "All" from the menu that pops up. This should display all of the pages of the thread, in order, from start to finish on one page. If you don't see that option, then redownload/install the extension.

If you follow this, it should work...it's kind of touchy in that you can't click the page numbers, you have to click the "next" button instead. It takes a little getting used to but it is very useful/time saving if you start to use it.

I already had the Reloadevery extension and found that useful a few times. This new one though should be great since I visit forums like this a lot. Thanks for posting Slomo ;-D BTW only 6.5pts back...I'm coming }:-)

You guys want to know how hard it is to moderate some threads? Try that with the hottest chicks thread and you'll see what we go through every time we split off a post (all posts become one really long thread). 72 pages all on one page? Not only does it take forever to load (and I'm on DSL 8-o ), but that becomes one really long thread.

Nice finds Slomo. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
