WASP v0.51: minor but anoying bug fixes

The support through GetSatisfaction, the "people powered customer service", is working great! WASP v0.50 was launched just a couple of days ago and some users reported two annoying problems, so I fixed them :)

Bug fixes

  • Extension conflict: WASP wasn't working nicely with some other extensions, notably the one. With the feedback collected through GetSatisfaction I was able to find the issue pretty quickly.
  • Crawling step 2 hang: when the starting page for the crawl was already loaded, WASP was waiting forever trying to find which web analytics tools were on that page. The Crawl Wizard is looking for the tools on the first page to speed up the crawling process afterward.
I also fixed some minor aesthetic elements.

Getting it or upgrading

Two ways to upgrade or get WASP:
  1. Get it NOW! Easiest/Recommended: Visit and click on the "Add to Firefox" green button.
  2. Wait some a long time...: If you already have WASP installed, Firefox will eventually trigger an automatic update and prompt you to confirm. But... is getting an amazingly long time to approve extensions...
