An excellent addition for firefox.
I have, however, most likely discovered a bug:

The first time I access ComicbookDB and fill in a title to search I get an empty page "http://comicbookdb.com/search.php?form_search=<title>" with only the words "Query failed:"

If I subsequently go back and fill for the second time the title the correct result page "http://comicbookdb.com/search.php?form_search=<title>&form_searchtype=Title" is shown.

It looks like the first time the string "&form_searchtype=Title" isn't posted to the php page.

After that is works normally.

Interesting. I'm "happy" to report that this doesn't appear to be a bug in the extension ... it's something wonky (not) happening with a cookie the site wants to set the first time a search is performed. (You should be able to re-create the problem after disabling the extension by clearing your comicbookdb.com cookies and re-opening the site.)

I'll send a problem report to Chris with what little info I've gleaned.

As an aside: I realize I have some work to do to get the extension revved up for Firefox 3 compatibility purposes, but the Greasemonkey script version is unaffected. When I get around to it, I also have a handful of new features pending I'll try to roll into the update.

This extension has stopped working for me. Is anyone else having problems with it?

You need to download the new version from the home page.
