I made an addon for firefox which makes it easy for you to send bitcoins to users. Site owners can put their address as a meta tag on their page and the addon will automatically detect it.
It is also possible to select and right-click addresses to donate to.
Here is the link to the addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firecoin/
. I have released it under BSD, and the source can be found at: https://github.com/galaxyAbstractor/FireCoin
If you like this addon, please donate to me at 1KHTs795SKBd2yBfdfpf4BxArEq5RGrNZo
(also good opportunity to test the addon
Please post suggestions and issues in this thread, so I can work on them
As of version 1.1, http://btc.to
support has been added. Now you can provide your addresses and send to them in a shortened form.You can get 1.1 from: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firecoin/versions/?page=1#version-1.1
What it does
The plugin lets you discover bitcoin addresses provided by the site owner in the header section. When the toolbar button lights up, a bitcoin address has been provided
and you can press the button to donate.
It also lets you select bitcoin addresses on pages, right-click on them and choose "Send Bitcoins". This makes it easy to send payments without opening the client.
How To Use
After install, make sure that the toolbarbutton is placed in a toolbar. Then, make sure you read this guide:https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Running_Bitcoin#Bitcoin.conf_Configuration_File
You need to make sure BitCoin is running as a server by putting these options to your bitcoin.conf file:
rpcpassword=*Desired secure password*
Some things to note:
The addon will not show any transaction fees, but these will be paid automatically by the JSON-RPC API. So if you send 0.01BTC to someone, be aware that
it might cost 0.02BTC total.
There is an option on every transaction to pay 5% extra to me. This will only be paid if you check the checkbox (disabled by default) "Donate 5% to addon author?", never anything else.
You will have to authenticate to the JSON-RPC API once every browser session for security, but you will have the option to save the credentials with the firefox login manager.
For site owners or developers!
Bitcoinaddress detection works with meta tags in the header. They are named bitcoin, bitcoinmsg and bitcointhanks.
To add your address to a page, add this to the <head> section of your HTML:
<meta name="bitcoin" content="1KHTs795SKBd2yBfdfpf4BxArEq5RGrNZo"/>
change your address accordingly
You also have an option to leave a message to the donater, which is shown before donating:
<meta name="bitcoinmsg" content="With your donation, I will be able to keep the site running longer!"/>
The last meta is bitcointhanks, which should hold an URL to a thanks page, like this:
<meta name="bitcointhanks" content="http://pixomania.net
Only the first meta is required, the rest is optional
