ViewState Decoder Add-On for Firefox

My first Add-on for FireFox. Never realized that creating add-ons could be so much of fun. This add-on could be useful for programmers and testers who want to keep watch on viewstate. It is designed to give sneak peek of the viewstate and not really deserialize it.

You can download it here : http://ashishware.com/ViewStatePeeker.shtml

Any plans to update it to work with Firefox 3? FF3 says it isn't compatible.

Do you plan on updating this for Firefox 3.0?

Done !
Just now uploaded newer version that works with FF 3. If possible try and please let me know.

Can anyone please review or rate this add on. Want to see it out of the sandbox !

Works great in Firefox 3.0, thanks for updating it!

I did notice something, the "Show ViewState" context menu item is shown/hidden for all tabs based on whether or not the last site visited (in any tab) had a ViewState. Not a big deal though.

Are you planning to upgrade to be compatible with FF 3.0.1?

I cannot use it since I've upgraded FF.

Thanks!

Yes I have upgraded it ! The latest version is available from mozilla's website here:

UTF-16 support in the Viewstate window: would be nice! Anyway, thx for this addon!
