Earlier today I discovered that my Firefox Session Saver was not working, when I accidentally closed Firefox (I hit Alt+F4 instead of Ctrl+F4) and when I restarted it it came up blank. A couple of other things were not working right. I decided that, since my install seemed to have gotten gorked, perhaps it was time to update, since my version of Firefox is fairly old. So I did that, and discovered that none of my extensions were working. I managed to find a new version of Session Saver and it seems to work. Duplicate Tab now seems to be working, and its coalesce windows feature seems to be working. But I can't find any version of the Snapback Tab extension (which kept track of like the last 10 tabs that you closed in a menu that let you bring them back, and in the same position in the tab bar list to boot, a great feature for someone who frequently manages to close the wrong tab by mistake). And worse, I can't find Deepest Sender, my LJ client, through either the Mozilla site or the LJ page. For the first time in approximately forever, I am using the standard web interface to write an LJ entry.
So, do people out there use the standard page (http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml), or do you use a client? If you use a client, what client do you use, is it compatible with XP and Firefox 1.5, what features does it have to recommend it, and where can I get it? This default web form is wimpy, the rich text version doesn't seem to allow any text entry at all, and in any case, I started using Deepest Sender because I found it was less likely to make my posts suddenly vaporize after a long time writing.
(Update: I tried to post this, and when I clicked on "update journal", instead of posting the entry, it dropped me into the rich text editor with all of my paragraphs mashed into one. At least I can type in the rich text editor now. Not confidence inspiring; I do hope someone can recommend a client.)
