Hi!

I am learning how to make firefox extensions and have gotten totally confused... so I thought I would start from the basics again.

Can you make me  (or walk me through creating) a simple extension that saves "ryan" into simple storage, so that it is available even on the browser restart?

Thanks!
Ryan

Ryan,

There are several how to guides which take you through creating a basic add on.
They are not too recent, but this just means that the extensions you create will work with older browsers too - not just FF 4, which is good.
