Google Calendar Quick Add

Google Calendar is a blessing because every time I need a date entered, I head over to the "big GC" and add an entry relatively quick.

The Google Calendar Quick Add extension is even better. After loading and restarting Firefox, the extension was ready to go. Hit CTRL - ; (semi-colon) and a dialog box appears ready for the quick add.

Unfortunately, when I tried the extension, it didn't work. It didn't work in the sense that the dialog appeared, but when I entered the data on the edit field and hit enter, the dialog box disappeared. I assumed it added the event to my calendar since I was already logged in (a prerequisite for using the extension). After visiting the site, I noticed it wasn't there. I even searched through my events to find it. Nowhere to be found.

I added a couple more to see if I was doing something wrong. Nope. No events.

I proceeded to load up Firefox 1.5 and install the extension. It worked perfectly.

Once the extension is updated to support Firefox 2.0, this extension will go straight to a 5 out of 5.

Nice extension, though!
