Want to receive WordPress.com notifications instantly, even when you’re not on WordPress.com? Back in January, we announced the WordPress.com extension for Chrome, and today, the extension is available for Firefox too!
Simply click the icon to view your latest WordPress.com notifications:
Start following new blogs without visiting WordPress.com
The Firefox extension also makes it easy to follow sites from your WordPress.com account by displaying a Follow button whenever you’re browsing a site that has an RSS feed.
When you visit a WordPress.com site, you’ll notice that the extension icon will turn blue, but keep in mind that you can follow blogs on Blogger, Tumblr, and other services, too.
Quickly post cool stuff you find while browsing the web
Press This is a lightning-fast way to publish content on your blog without ever visiting WordPress.com. Click the WordPress.com extension button, then select Press This whenever you find something on the web that you’d like to share on your blog, and a pop-up editor will appear:
Select the blog you’d like to post to, then hit publish to share a link to the site. Your blog will be updated, and you can continue browsing the web from wherever you left off.
If you’d like to publish an excerpt of text along with the link to the site, simply highlight the material with your cursor before clicking Press This:
And it will appear in the editor for you to publish along with the link:
We hope this makes it easier for you to share cool stuff on your blog quickly; if there’s anything you’d like to see in future versions of the extension, be sure to let us know.

I just installed it…this is way too cool! I pretty much dote on Firefox, but I use Chrome to get to my Gmail as Firefox still has a problem interfacing with Google, or maybe it’s just Chrome…lol.

I don’t add extensions, but i’m drawn into this one and i’m going to add it. That’s really daring for me!

Wow, thank you so much! I usually don’t check my e-mails and my WP account so much, and I usually miss some notifications. Thank you!

good stuff but is there an easier way to quote and get a picture as part of ‘blog this’? currently have to highlight text, save as draft and then add the picture from the blog post
