BoxCheck for Firefox 2.0

If anyone wants to use BoxCheck (a Firefox extension that allows you to shift-click to select multiple tick boxes on web forms) on Firefox 2.0, I’ve updated it to make it compatible.

Note that this is hacked – all I’ve done is change the supported versions in the script to work with 2.0. It works for me, but if it eats your Firefox, don’t come complaining (execute FF with -safe-mode to remove it if it kills it).

You will have to add me to the list of allowed sites to install software, but don’t worry, it’s pure BoxCheck just with a hacked install file (you can verify for yourself, just Save Target As the .xpi, rename to .zip and explore it).

Tutorial on how to hack your favourite FF 1.5.x extensions to work with FF 2.0 coming soon.

    BoxCheck ticked a list of up to 100 items to be marked for deletion but when the delete link was clicked only the first item was deleted. Is there a remedy for this fault?

    Which app/site is this?

    I only generally use it in the WordPress backup plugin to tick all of the other database tables, and that works fine. 🙂

    As I said, I’m not the BoxCheck developer, and you certainly won’t get any support from them running a hacked version. 😀

    If I can help, though, I will.
