My first Firefox Extension

Sometimes we encounter “Firewall – Access denied for the web site you requested!” message while surfing from a corporate network. Unfortunately, firewalls sometimes rate a good valid site as blacklisted site. In that case we use to request our system administrator to whitelist that site. This tool comes in handy for this purpose. Once you encounter this message, you have to just click “Request Access!” menu in Tools menu of firefox. Now your mail requesting administrator to unblock the site is ready in your default mail client. Just click “Send”. That is it. Your System Administrator’s email-id and your Full name are configurable through Options button in extensions dialog.

This is my first contribution to open source world. My first firefox extension too. Welcoming your comments for this tiny tool..!

I had submitted this extension to mozilla for approval. Today it has been approved and listed in Mozilla site. You can download it from here:
