    I’m still missing the split screen feature and the hot button (F8) to open scribe fire. Somehow the workflow in Scribe Fire 3.5 have been better than in the new one. The chrome edition makes tagging (as categories) not that funny and I didn’t find the ping tool either.

    What happend to all these features? I’d like them a lot, supporting my work, copying some zitations from all over the webpage and keeping the needed page in sight.

    Would it be possible to build upon the prism concept and make scribefire a desktop app that worked outside the browser? I think it would be a great addition to the collection you already have.

    For some reason, I cannot right click and paste into the “Title” or “Post Comment” areas. Can this be fixed? Awesome extension, by the way!

    It could be very cool to integrate custom taxonomies in next version of scribefire.

    Is there a way to download a tag list off your blog and be able to add tags to a post as you’d add categories, with checkboxes? This seems like an obvious feature and I wasn’t sure if it I was just missing it or if it’s actually not there.

    No, really. How do you get this to work with Firefox. It doesn’t install automatically, it just saves to disk. Some instructions would be nice.

    Hello. Daily use ScribeFire plugin. For future versions i will suggest to distinguish between categories and subcategories. I have several wordpress blogs especially, and some on blogger. But for wordpress, I need to distinguish between subcategories. Example: one of the blogs contain specifications about phones, tablets and cameras. How will the difference between the three subcategories on the name “Samsung”? Because I need subcategory “Samsung” on all three categories.

    Thanks for your attention and effort that you submit.
