ScribeFire 1.4.7 has been released. You can download it at Mozilla Add-ons.

Here’s the list of changes since version 1.4.6. Important or long-standing bugs are shown in bold:

  • Simplified image upload dialog (issue #5)
  • Added native image uploading for Blogger blogs. (issue #11)
  • Fixed bug in account wizard when blog type was selected with the keyboard (issue #13)
  • Added the ability to edit a post’s timestamp (Firefox 3 only; not supported by Blogger) (issue #19)
  • Added support for tagging in WordPress (and any other platform that supports mt_keywords) (issue #35)
  • Fixed issue where using blockquote removed formatting from the quoted text (issue #42)
  • Added a “Custom HTML” button. (issue #67)

  • Updated spellchecking to support Firefox 3.0b4 (issue #81)

  • Fixed issue where “ ” was being inserted into the text of posts. (issue #89)
  • Fixed bug where random numbers were appearing in the code when adding a link that should open in a new window (issue #94)
  • Changed “Loading tags…” status message to “Loading categories…”
  • Converted right sidebar to an actual tabpanel that blends more nicely with native Firefox theming.
  • Moved “Posts/Notes/Pages” into a sub-box under “Entries”
  • Added the ScribeFire icon to the context menu item
  • Split settings panel into multiple, more specific panels
  • General code and file cleanup
  • Fixed bug in account wizard that caused it to not recognize Blogger blogs with a numeral in the title (e.g., “My 2nd Blog”)
  • Moved FTP settings to their own panel in the Options

Feel free to add any bug reports or feature requests at the ScribeFire Google Code project.

Also, lots of thanks to Evan, the newest contributor to the project for all of the work he’s been doing, especially on getting spellchecking working in Firefox 3.0 Beta 4. Thanks Evan!

    I use this application for five different blogs. It just keeps getting better and better. Thanks so much for all your work! Tags: Great.

    Are there ever going to be themes and add-ons (not that add-ons are needed) or are they around already and I’ve just missed them?

    Thanks for the awesome plugin, I don’t know what I’d do without it! A couple of things I could suggest, just to improve the setup slightly:

    1. For those of us who use WPMU, we get a complete list of our blogs on the MU system when going through the manual process, but they don’t all work. Either eliminate this overlap or allow it to work correctly, that would rock.

    2. Options specific to blogs. I have several blogs I write to and it would be nice to setup my options independently rather than needing to do it for each blog each time I post.

    I follow Firefox startup suggestion to update ScribeFire to 1.4.7. Since then, I can’t get to my Windows Live Spaces. I deleted account and add again and it ends up keep complaining about user id and password. I suppose it is still:
    user = xxxx as in “”
    password = secret word in setting up Spaces…email option…

    Any changes not published? Need to get it up again soon. Please help.

    “Added native image uploading for Blogger blogs. (issue #11)”

    Not working for me, actually.

    I guess I’m having a similar problem as Raymond #9 – i was using 1.4.5 just fine and then took the upgrade to 1.4.7, and now I can’t publish or post drafts. I deleted and re-setup my blog settings, but to no avail.
    My blog uses the MetaWeblog API and is hosted by, using their Quick Blogcast feature.
    Let me know if you need more details for the bug report, or where better I should enter the report than here.
    And thanks for the great work on this plug-in! I can’t wait till it works again. I’m going to try rolling back to 1.4.5 now, wish me luck
