Thanks for answering question,

Another good feature would be ability to see all the threads you are subscribed to and onclick goto them. Its all now down to whether vBulletin has some kind of webservice for retrieval of this information rather than having to parse a webpage. Either way its a very good start.

Funny you should mention that... I was just reading in this thread over at Anandtech about how there is another extension for the SA forums that does something along those lines for last read forums. There's all the potential in the world to make some very slick and useful extensions. Now I just need to find the time. I've been sick most of this week so I've had a lot of free time but that won't last.

I was playing around with the placement of this menu (I like it right at the top, the first item in the right click context menu). I thought it would be neat to allow users to customize the placement to their liking and I soon found this:

http://menueditor.mozdev.org/

Very cool extension, you can also hide a lot of the junk in the context menu that you may not use. Makes using it much easier/cleaner.

BTW, the nV News Menu shows up as "forums-menu" as that is the root <menu id value. So, that's what you'd want to select if you want to change where this option appears in the context menu.

I've been granted project space on mozdev.org so from now on you can find the latest info and/or install nV News Menu here: http://nvnewsmenu.mozdev.org/

Good idea for a "lite" version that would only have the most used Quick Links.

Excellent extension! I've got to get it installed on the PowerBook once I get home. Great job, Clay!

[Edit] There seems to be a weird bug with my setup ... once I've selected a link from one of the forum submenus (e.g. the Forceware Drivers forum under Graphics Card Forums), the menu goes away. No more list of subforums. All the rest of the menus are OK, at least until I select one of the forums under the menu. Running Firefox 1.0.1 with the Qute 3 theme, Sage, BugMeNot, Adblock, ForecastFox, Tabbrowser Preferences, Spellbound, and the nVNews extensions on Windows 2000. I'll try a restart and see if that fixes things.
