Verizon Minutes Used Firefox Extension Version 0.5

Version 0.5 has the following fixes, most importantly the fix to address users in the western region that haven't been able to get the extension to work. apologies to those users as you need to understand i have only tested it with a user account in the eastern region.

  • added the "region" option. for now you need to guess its value if it's not obvious to you. and if it doesn't work, try another region. so far i only identified two regions: east and west. (thanks to Brad Templeton for helping me use his account.)

  • fixed the infinite loop problem when login failed due to incorrect region.

  • corrected parsing error in collecting weekend and in-off peak minute usage. (thanks to Phil Figler for pointing it out.)

Verizon Minutes Used Firefox Extension Version 0.2

Version 0.2 is published, with the following bug fixes:

  • Fixed displaying minutes/messages over 1000 (parsing the comma in the number)

  • Fixed TypeError: win.gVerizonMinutesUsed when accessing this extension's option from firefox's tools->extension menu. (A workaround: you can simply right click on the status bar area (with the verizon logo) and choose option there. it should work and allow you to input your user name and password. )
