Pimp Firefox for the best deviantArt experience

- P R E F A C E -

Every now and then people ask me about some basic dA things like how to add a link to their page/deviation, how to make text bold, italic, etc and I just tell them to use deviantPlus extension for firefox by zikes.
And almost always get the same response: "Extension? Firefox? How can I get it?"
After dozens of explanations I've decided to make a journal entry, where  I'd sum up all the stuff that people need to personalize Firefox browser to best suit their needs...
I'm not going to try and make you switch to Firefox. Nor that is my goal. My goal is to present you with all these handy extensions/scripts for it that our fellow deviants have made to make your whole deviantArt experience a lot more enjoyable.
I've chosen my browser. I've chosen Firefox. You don't have to, but spare a minute or two t

Hello deviantART,

It's been quite some time since I posted here -- and my, how life has moved on, and on, and on. Three years and a few weeks since my last journal entry, and in that time I've left the PhD program with a Masters (decided I was tired of school, wanted to move on with my life, needed a change of pace, and the concentration was not inspiring me -- in short, I lacked the passion to complete the PhD in the topic I was studying, so I left), started dating and married the love of my life (Katie!), had my first child (who is now over a year old!), took on a full-time job in New York, moved to a nice neighborhood, upgraded cars, ... in short, literally everything about my life is transformed.

It also explains in no small way the lack of time I've had for the DeviantArt community, although there are many here that I still think of and remember fondly. I'm sure if you stumble on this journal and recall my name you'll be surprised by what I've said!

Regardless, of course no guarantee I'll be back in any capacity, but I'm up and sleepless and figured what better use of my time then to drop a line to my old friends and colleagues on DeviantArt. I trust you are all hale and well, and that the transformations in your lives have been equally full of happiness as mine.  Good night, and take care.

Deepest love,
Daniel (TheBishounen55)

Hey there! :hug: It's a pretty neat place, once you get used to it :D. I wish I had more time to spend lounging around on dA like I once did -- it was always a fun time.

Don't be a stranger :D!

Hehe when classes start you always drop off the planet but now I see you've had some difficulties. Always send me a note if you need someone to talk to and of course I'm not going to be a stranger ;)

Yeah ... classes do seem to massacre what little spare time I have! Thank you so much for the offer, I will never forget it :D. I'll look forward to seeing you (and your comments) around here more often, then!
