Paste IP

A quick extension I wrote for my own personal use, that I thought I'd share with the world. This adds a context menu to textboxes or email messages allowing you to paste an IP address or your current user agent string.

I used this mostly at the W3C validator when validating files on my personal web server, and I got tired of having to check my address with ipconfig all the time.

The UA string comes in handy when filing bug reports in b.m.o or posting to Mozillazine.

To all those people who post comments on saying it pastes the wrong IP address: READ THE RELEASE NOTES! There is a preference that controls which IP address is pasted.

If you have any comments or issues you want me to address, there is a contact form on my personal web page, there isn't really a way for me to respond to the comments that are left on the site here.

Plans for 2.0 include support for NAT-based clients, and perhaps an optional status bar entry showing your current IP address.
