    I tried to install the fire bible extension and even though it showed up i could not get it to work. I tried to use the binary jsword stuff and the windows stuff and everything i could think of but it keeps telling me that it cannot load jsword from specified location. I have no idea what to do so I uninstalled the fire bible extension. If you make this easier to install maybe then i will use it. I certainly liked what i saw on your website and would have really liked to have used it, but it is way too complicated to get it up and running.

    Hi Brian,
    Just now i installed the DataFox addon, and it’s simply amazing!!! No other firefox addon is as useful for me as this one is. Thank you so much for developing something like this and publishing it for free. It’s really very nice of you!!!
    Thanks once again.

    DataFox is a great product – thanks. With the time delay that good old BSNL sometimes update the usage data it would be a great help if you could display the last “Stop Time” from the account so that we know how up todate the information is instead of the last time Datafox looked at the data. Keep up the good work. Alan (in Goa).

      Press Ctrl + / to enable the “Add-on” bar in Firefox 4.

    Hi, I have been using DataFox since 4 years now. But with the recent update and revamping of Mozilla Firefox, I can no longer see the Add-On in the customize menu. Please tell me how do I re-enable DataFox in Firefox 29

    I’m getting this error when I click manage books in Firebible preferences.
    TypeError: java_instance.Packages is undefined

      Sofiya, FireBible 2 now fixes this. Please check for updates!
