After hours of troubleshooting, I've discovered that my other Firefox plug-ins (namely Flashgot) do not function when OkCupid plug-in is enabled. It would cause an XPCOM error or some other javascript error that disables the Flashgot's context menu. Can someone else verify this bug?

Considering how buggy the site is, why would anyone in their right mind download a plug-in or other app by them? It's like hiring a guy who mumbles crazily as your lawyer.

Y'know, I can't even find anywhere on the site that adequately describes just what the plugin does... It just direct-links to an installer with no actual information.

The only annoyance thus far is that it doesn't work for shite on my Mac, but it does its duty just fine on my work PC. Grr.

So it seems I got the crazily mumbling lawyer at my house, but the competent state college grad in my office.

What the plugin does: Shows you who on your favorites list is online, when people stalk you, when people message you, etc. You can also hit the dropdown button and jump directly to your stalker, matches, home, whatever. That said, it'd be nice if the thing didn't make a bar the entire width of your FF window, or if it could only make itself visible when one of your favorites was on, or something like that. Eating that much real estate for little benefit is pretty fail.

I must note that you must disable the plug-in to Save Bookmarks. With the plug-in enabled, bookmarks are disabled. As soon as the plug-in is disabled, it's fine. That's the only problem so far, and on the whole I like it. If this can be repaired, I'll use it again.

Hmm, bookmarking works for me in Mac OS X (v. 10.4.11) with the plug-in working in Firefox. I'm kind of surprised since there are other problems I have with OKC at work - like not seeing any images or the IM buttons :P

right on brother.

there is no satisfactory documentation for this addon at Mozilla, and that is the ONLY place one can ultimately trust because of the high-level of peer-review in the open-source community.

On the topic of source code review, you are welcome to review the code in the plugin yourself, its just javascript and XUL.

^ which is done by saving the XPI file somewhere and renaming it to *.ZIP and then unzipping it

Well at least now I know where the bookmark problem came from. Thanks.

Yeah.  I just found this thread by a Google search.  OKC gives no explanation at all as to what their plugin actually does, and Mozilla has no information for it.  You have to install it just to learn what it does?  That's very spywareish.

Maybe they've explained it somewhere, but it's pretty bad when I have to resort to a Google search because they won't clearly provide information about it.

"OkCupid Firefox Toolbar    The plugin watches for new messages and which of your favorites are online—even when you’re not at OkCupid."

Seems kinda lame considering that I get emailed when someone sends me a message on okcupid. I guess if I had more favorites it would make sense to use... but if that's the only benefit, I'm thinking it probably isn't worth the hassle.

Also, I only found a description of what it actually is through a google search and thanks to this thread. Not cool.

I've used this add-on for a long time now and have never seen any of those errors but i use xmarks which frees me from many errors like that.
