QuickProxy has moved

I’ve just completed the move of QuickProxy and sites under it to the new site. This will allow me to better integrate a system like TRAC (which I’m currently planning on doing for QuickProxy) with the site itself.

For those that frequent the site you may notice some cosmetic changes, which have also allowed me to turn on threaded comments for the blog, to better keep track of things that go on around here.

I’ve also been able to implement some of the features people have suggested or sent me code snippets for, and I hope to have a new version available soon.

Update: Users that have subscribed to my RSS feed will need to update the address, as this has also changed. Feedburner will redirect the old feeds for the next 30 days, but to ensure that you stay subscribed please update the feeds to either:

Hopefully with this new structure even if I migrate the site again the feeds will stay in place.

QuickProxy has become a Recommended Addon

QuickProxy is now a Recommended addon

QuickProxy is now a Recommended addon

It’s been a long time since QuickProxy was first launched, and apart from some cosmetic and behavior changes the extension remains as minimal as I can get it. I’m happy to announce that on the 11th of September, QuickProxy became a Recommended addon in its category.

While I was having a look around the site to see what this had changed, when viewing the section for Privacy & Security addons, I saw that QuickProxy was also on top for the Top Rated addon.

QuickProxy 2009.07.19 Approved!

The 3.5.* compatibile release of QuickProxy has finally been approved by the Mozilla editors, after 6 weeks from the initial release. I hope that the time that this took isn’t going to remain for any future versions that are submitted, specifically for versions that are required for future firefox releases. Those using the previous versions should now be able to auto-update to the latest version through Firefox, or you can get it manually by going here.

Change of Hosts

Apologies to any visitors who experienced the downtime that was caused by the changeover of hosts that QuickProxy and my other sites underwent earlier today. The site was down for several hours (sadly caused by a mistake on my part), but now should be back (or coming back, depending on DNS cache’s and the like), and better than ever.

I’ve submitted the latest version of QuickProxy to the Mozilla team for approval, and hopefully it wont take too long to go through, although there are ~200 odd extensions before mine in the queue =(. For those keen to get started you should be able to download the latest version by going to the QuickProxy page, and clicking on the See All Versions link (Or visit it directly here) .

Firefox 3.5 and QuickProxy

First I want to say thanks again for all the positive feedback I’ve receieved for this extension. Development is still active for QuickProxy, and I’m hoping to release a 3.5 compatible version soon. As the last version was rushed and contained bugs that could have been avoided, I didn’t want to repeat those steps with this release. We have almost completed testing the extension internally, and are hoping to have the last known issue corrected soon, with a new version being submitted to Mozilla for approval on Friday.

QuickProxy 2009.03.28 Known Bug

It appears in my haste to push out the new version, I overlooked an issue in the testing process with the “Open Browser Proxy Settings” button that was added. As this opens a Firefox preferences window, I glossed over this during testing, and assumed that it worked the same as it does in Firefox, although due to a few reports I’m getting from users, and testing done myself, it appears that editing information in the window created doesn’t get saved. I’m currently working on resolving this issue, and I hope to have a resolution to this quickly, but as it’s a native Firefox window I may need to just re-create the entire preferences screen.

Thank you all for the feedback I’ve received on the extension so far. Apart from these annoying bugs that somehow keep finding their way in it’s been a very positive experience for me.

QuickProxy 2009.03.28 Approved!

The latest version of QuickProxy has now been approved by the Mozilla addon editors, and is now available publically for download on their site here. This release will hopefully be well met by users, as the main reason why I pressed so hard for this to be released was due to a fix with the automatic behaviour of the extension.

QuickProxy 2009.03.28 Release

I’ve finally squished the last bug in the newest QuickProxy release, rushed by Mozilla approvers due to the previous release being held back because of the code structure. This should address that issue, and also maintain all of the functionality of the extension. The recode has been quite successful in optimizing the code of the extension, so hopefully it will be slightly more stable also.
