My first Firefox extension: writefile

writefile is a Firefox extension [1] which waits for an event from the current page and upon receiving notification of that event writes the contents of the calling element to a new file on the computer running the browser.

The source and a download link can be found on Bitbucket.

One thought on “My first Firefox extension: writefile”

  1. Hi Christian,

    I was wondering if you have any HTML examples of implementing the writefile FireFox extension.

    I’ve had a couple of runs at it, but can’t seem to get it doing what I think it needs to do.
