Acrolinx for Firefox - Version 1.1 (01 June 2018)
This minor update gives you better support for Firefox, so that you can keep all your content crisp!
Sidebar Appears in Your Browser Language
If you've set your browser language to English, German, French, Japanese, or Swedish, then the Sidebar will also appear in this language. For all other languages, the Sidebar will appear in English.
Acrolinx Reads Content from All Fields on a Web Page
Acrolinx for Firefox used to filter out some of the fields on web pages. Now, Acrolinx reads text from all fields. This means that Acrolinx might find issues that aren’t relevant to you. To avoid this you’ll need a new Content Profile.
Updated Content Profile Required
Since Acrolinx now reads more content, it might happen that you see some irrelevant Sidebar cards. An updated content profile will filter certain content on your web pages. Our Acrolinx support team is happy to help with this!
Sidebar Start Page Now Included in Installation
Acrolinx used to load the Sidebar start page from the cloud. Now, we’ve bundled the start page with Acrolinx for Firefox.
We've developed and tested this version of Acrolinx for Firefox with Firefox versions 59.x.
Acrolinx for Firefox requires the following Acrolinx product:
- Acrolinx version 5.2 or later
Acrolinx for Firefox - Version 1.0 (25 August 2016)
We have a new Firefox integration. You can use it to check content in any editable fields on a web page.
This integration is great if you have web content that you want to check but don't yet have an Acrolinx product to use in your web CMS. The following table shows how well Acrolinx works on some social media sites and other web tools. We'll continue to extend this list.
