v1.0 & Mozilla Acceptance

A couple of notes for this latest post. First, I have updated to v1.0. I believe the extension is finally ready for 1.0 status as I have added some additional sites (thanks Pat & toggmeister) and added a status bar menu. The complete change log is below.

The second development is that Mozilla finally accepted the extension and now hosts it. As of this post the old version, 0.4, is posted. I have submitted the 1.0 version for review, so if you have the extension installed, you should get a prompt when it is accepted (assuming you have auto-update check enabled).

*** Update ***
- Mozilla approved the update and published it yesterday, 11/17.

Please keep the comments and suggestions coming.

Version 0.4 Posted - Firefox Compatibility

Got a little push from Kevin over at to add Firefox 3.0 compatibility, so below is a link to Version 0.4. Version 1.0 should be released sometime in early August. I have a lot of plans for that, and will post them to the blog shortly. Any suggestions are welcomed.

New Version 0.3 Posted

With some suggestions from my coworkers and friends, I added the following sites to the PassiveRecon Firefox extension:
  • - Requires a membership if you use this more than once.
  • - I added both the root domain ( and the www 'A' record ( as they provide different information.
The extension has gotten little traction on Mozilla's internal development site (sandbox), so if you have the ability to review the extension and suggest it for 'public' release, I would greatly appreciate it!
