Tweetbar (modified from original version) for Firefox

Important note: This modified extension has been branched into a completely separate project, TwitKit.

I recently discovered Tweetbar, a Twitter extension for Firefox that allows viewing and posting to Twitter. I was very satisfied with the application, but I still thought there could be more things implemented. So, being the DIY person I am, I dug up the code and changed it myself.

The result of two days’ work is a good one—one with new features and ideas implemented into it. Read on to find out about how I changed Tweetbar, and how you can acquire this modified extension.

Changed/Added Features

I changed a ton of stuff in this modified Tweetbar. Here’s a list that summarizes all of (I think) the new features.

  • Clicking on a user’s picture prepares a @reply in the status box
  • Tweets can be added to user’s favorites by clicking on a heart below the user’s avatar in a particular tweet
  • Friends tab now lists all the people you follow and their latest status
  • Followers tab now lists all the people who follow you and their latest status
  • The Update button has been removed, to allow more space for viewing
  • Pressing Enter now sends a tweet instead of clicking the Update button
  • “@s” tab shows tweets that are replies to your statuses
  • Refresh intervals can now be as low as 30 seconds
  • Your Twitter statuses can be deleted from Tweetbar by clicking the delete button below the status
  • Viewing area has been extended for easier viewing
  • Many style changes

It might be hard to understand some of these changes without seeing them for yourself, so I made a demo video and posted it to Viddler for all of you to see. I have added comments so you can see where each feature is demonstrated in the video.


You can download this modified Tweetbar extension from MediaFire.

Once the .xpi file has downloaded, simply open it with Firefox (File->Open File) and it will automatically start the installation process.

    Awesomeness! Thanks for your hard work…definitely clears up some of the features that were lacking!

    only prob I have is when clicking the refresh drop down menu it immediate scrolls back up…in other words there is nothing I can select and it is stuck at 2 min intervals…which is fine for me, but other people may be looking for more

    The quickkey you provided for file download was invalid. This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on Mediafire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or Mediafire.
