ScribeFire logo Version 1.4 of Performancing for Firefox has been released, and in the process, it has been rebranded as ScribeFire. The homepage has moved as well, from to

Besides the name change, this release includes the following changes:

  • Support for Blogger blogs has been improved (now you can even post with ampersands!)
  • We’ve added support for the new WordPress API. What does this mean? If you have a WordPress blog that supports the new API (currently any blog at, you will be able to add, edit, and delete pages directly from ScribeFire, as well as create new categories. (The API will be included in the next major WordPress release, for all blogs.)
  • General bug fixes and code optimization.

I’m new to this project, having been asked to pick up where the previous developer left off, so I’m not completely up-to-speed on what the most-requested fixes and features are. So in the spirit of catching me up, feel free to comment below with any feedback until the new site is up and running.

You can download ScribeFire from the Mozilla Addons preview site.
