He mass-mailed list subscribers. Here is my communications with him:
Hi Eric, thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I have
indeed contacted several developers. I got your address at http://mozdev.org/pipermail/project_owners/.
I'm afraid I'm too small an entity for you to work with as
you usually work with Fortune 500/1000 companies. I can't afford you.
But thank you anyway for getting back to me
All the best,

I imagine this was a mass-mailing on your part. Although I am
interested, I do not bid on a project basis. I typically
work with Fortune 500/1000 companies rather than
p.s. out of curiosity, where did
you get my email address? addons.mozilla.org?

Subject: Seeking Firefox extension developer
I saw that you have a background in developing Firefox /
Mozilla extensions. I
was wondering if you might be interested in the
I want to have a Firefox plug-in created that allows
the viewing of multiple Web
pages by "stitching" them together vertically in
what would seem like a single,
continuously scrollable web page. It's an
alternative to tabbed browsing. The idea
is to remove the interruption
inherent in having to go from one tab to another and
instead enable a
viewing of a set of multiple Web pages in one uninterrupted,
"scrolling down" motion.
This viewing mechanism is already implemented
in a server-side Web-based
application at www.quickbrowse.com, a
service I created in 1999. But that
mechanism nowadays does not quite work
anymore with an increasing number of
Web pages, mainly because of issues
with authentication mechanisms, certain
sorts of Web page contents, etc.
For a demo of a stitch-together page please see www.mflinks.com/qb. This
a Quickbrowse page made up of pages from CNN, the Washington Post and
Yahoo. It also shows the problems of the current server-side mechanism, such
the significant loss of original page layouts.
The idea is to do
it client side, through a Firefox extension, and thereby make it
any and all kinds of Web pages.
As with a set of tabbed pages, one
should be able to save a Quickbrowse page as
a single bookmark.
"Quickbrowse plug-in" should work with all kinds of Web page content
etc) and any username / password / subscription authentication
Cookies, passwords etc need to be cashed as needed. Each individual
etc) intact and operational.
I may want to integrate Google text ads
as a revenue option.
I expect that additional ideas for features will
surface as the specs are
discussed in detail.
If you are interested
in creating this plug-in, please let me know a ballpark figure
of what you
would charge for it (I am just a one-man operation, with a modest
and how long it would take you to develop something like this. Also, if
could send me a resume with a list if past projects that would be great.
Also, please feel free to pass this on to others who might be

Somebody emailed me asking if I were interested in being paid to write
an extension, but when I replied my message was caught in his spam
filter. He must be wondering why nobody is replying to his inquiries
despite dangling $$$ at potential developers :)
