Extension Update: Firefox AutoSave returns

Good news, Firefox 6.0+ for Mac users. We released a small update to our browser extension last night that brings back AutoSave. You even get first access to a new design we’re trying out for the AutoSave dialog, based on a lot of user feedback. It saves a lot of space while still giving access to some necessary features via the gear menu, such as toggling “never for this site” and AutoSave for all sites.

The new extension is now at version 3.8.5 for all browsers and you can learn more about the other changes in our extension changelog.

To get the new version, you shouldn’t have to do anything! That’s the magic of modern browsers automatically updating your extensions. But here’s how to force an update if you want to check it out right away:

  1. Go to Tools > Add-ons
  2. Click the gear menu at the top of the Add-ons manager and choose Check for Updates
For bonus points: you shouldn’t have to restart Firefox after updating the extension anymore! So how do you like it so far? Let us know in our forums!

We'd love to hear your comments in our forum!
