GoalCopy Updated for Firefox 9

If you’re not familiar with the Goal Copy Firefox extension, you can read the original post here.

It seems like everyone I know is using Chrome now. It’s fast, it’s simple, it has developer tools built right in. It’s a fantastic browser and it deserves every bit of browser share that it’s taking away from the Big Two (Firefox and IE).

That being said, I do almost all of my Google Analytics debugging in Firefox. I love HttpFox and you’ll pry Firebug (and, to a lesser extent, Firecookie) from my cold, dead hands. Maybe I’m just set in my ways, but it’s the way I do things, and while I love Chrome for everyday browsing, I do all my heavy lifting with the ‘Fox.

Which is why I keep updating GoalCopy. This latest version works with Firefox 9. It still only works with the old interface, but an update for GA v5 should be ready in a few weeks.

For now, just download the latest version of GoalCopy here and get to copying! You might encounter a weird glitch where only the Find/Replace toolbar shows and the Copy/Paste options are nowhere to be found. Just re-enable it through the new Firefox menu as shown below:

What about you? Have you made the switch to Chrome, or are you sticking with Mozilla? What sort of features do you want to see in a Google Analytics add-on? Please leave a comment below and let me know!

    Great add-on! When will the update for GA v5 be ready?

    Really great. Since v4 is not available anymore, when can we expect a release for v5?

    Hi – and thanks so much for creating this add-on.

    Can anyone tell me if it works in Firefox 12?

    I’ve installed it, restarted, but nothing happens when I click the “Copy” button while on a goal settings page.

    Do I need greasemonkey, or some other add-on installed to get this to work?

    Thanks – Andre
