    Nice extension!

    how about adding the 'Run in terminal' option to your extension? .. so I could get it all by just installing one add-on

    Wow, that's useful !!

    Only problem is, I run Opera as default browser, but that might change [since it will not work properly on lin the way it should].

    Great job, thanks.

    Thanks. I don't understand what you mean. You can run commands in terminal form the context menu, by simply selecting text on a page.

    With FoxRunner you can run shell commands from any web page through the context menu. Just select a command from a forum post or web article and run it. You can also save commands and scripts, then launch them through Firefox sidebar, context menu and status bar.

    Please test it and tell me what you think.

    Also check TerminalRun (not mine).

    Great job!!!! I like it!!!

    I always just highlight and then middle click in the open terminal when I need to run a command from a web page- as long as I know what it is all about and what it is both intended to do, and what it will actually do. All it would save me is a single click on the terminal launcher on the panel.

    I'm not suggesting the add-on is not worth all your effort, just that I don't think it is one for me to use.

    Well done though; many others seem to like the idea, and maybe I shall try it sometime and realise that it is worthwhile.

    cool thats very useful , whats the music in the video ?

    maybe a feature to open certain profiles for your shell , or different shells
    What arrests my attention...
    is the fact, that this space is inhabited.
