We were informed today that PatentlyUseful for the USPTO has been made public and is published by the Mozilla editors.
Please feel free to download PatentlyUseful for the USPTO at Mozilla’s website.
We are aware that Mozilla has taken affirmative steps to assist in speeding up update publishing and hope that the next upcoming update will take less than three months to be made public through Mozilla’s publication process. All signs are that the editor review team methodology is well improved!
A minor bug fix and steps to take advantage of new features of Firefox 3.7 have been included.
Until made public by the Mozilla editors,it can be found in the Additional Versions section.
Version 0.7.3 of the PatentlyUseful for USPTO Firefox Add-on has been released.
A minor bug fix is included to combat some of the differences between Firefox ver. 3.0 and Firefox ver 3.5 where a specific error was observed when running Firefox 3.0 and not when running Firefox 3.5. While we strongly recommend upgrading Firefox (it’s free after all!),we will continue to try to support the outdated version of Firefox while a large percentage of those with this add-on continue to use the older version of Firefox.
As always,I except that the Mozilla editors will not be able to review this add-on very quickly due to the backlog and don’t expect to see it published for 30 days or more.
You can always download version 0.7.3 prior to publishing by the Mozilla editors,but you will not get an automatic upgrade until they publish it.
Version 0.7.3 of the PatentlyUseful for USPTO Greasemonkey script has been released.
