Send Tab URLs 0.2

Just in time for Christmas, Send Tab URLs 0.2 has been released and is available for download!

Download: sendtabs-0.2.xpi (8 KB; English (United States); compatible with Firefox 1.5 - 2.0.0.*)

Send Tab URLs has been tested and confirmed to be fairly stable on Linux. It has not been tested on Mac OS and therefore cannot be guaranteed to work on that platform. There are limitations on supporting email apps on Windows; users who wish to install Send Tab URLs on Firefox for Windows should keep reading for more info.

About This Release

As blogged about previously, there are issues on Windows where the mailto URL that Send Tab URLs creates won't launch if the URL is too long. This release will now automatically detect and work properly with the following email apps on Windows:
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • SeaMonkey Mail
  • Outlook Express
  • MS Office Outlook
Send Tab URLs no longer asks the user for the install location of Mozilla Thunderbird, unlike the previous release.

For all other email apps, Send Tab URLs will make a "best-effort" attempt to launch the mailto URL via the system's mailto URL handler. But if the URL is too long, then the unsupported email app may not run at all.

Feedback Welcome

Feedback on Send Tab URLs is welcome as work progresses on this Firefox extension. Please submit your feedback and suggestions by clicking the comment link below.

Merry Christmas!
