GeoURL Firefox Extension for 1.5

I’ve been a fan of the GeoURL project since I first learned of it and I’ve enjoyed seeing sites adopting it. With the newest version of Firefox, however, the GeoURL extension (originally by Mr. Lauke) was no longer working. The fix was as simple as changing the maxVersion variable in the install file, but no one else seems to have shared the fix and I thought I’d do so in order to save others the hassle.

Once you’ve installed it you’ll see a globe appear in your status bar whenever a site uses GeoURL tags. You can then click on the icon to see a list of site geographically near that site. If you’re not using the tags yet, I highly recommend implementing them.

Update: Patrick H. Lauke just dropped me a line to share an actually recoded version of the plugin that can be found here.

  1. just bumping the version number introduced subtle yet annoying bugs (right-click menu becoming jumbled the second time around). that's why i took the time to actually recode it…still not perfect (due to some new bizarre FF1.5 quirks), but the proper 0.4 version is now available. https://addons.mozilla.org/
