Del.icio.us Complete Firefox Plugin for Firefox 4.x+

I love del.icio.us (or the Yahoo’ed, dummied-down delicious.com) to manage my bookmarks. Unfortunately, the Firefox extension I’m used to using, del.icio.us Complete, is no longer supported, and thus doesn’t work with the latest versions of Firefox.

This is my hacked version of the Delicious Complete extension, which allows it to run in version 4.0 or later. Please note: consider the extension beta software. It works fine for me on Ubuntu and Windows XP, but I haven’t done extensive testing. Please let me know if you have any issues.

Download and Install Del.icio.us Complete

Thanks to verymurklins for providing the original hack for version 3.0

The background colors don’t match! Of course everything looks fine in Mozilla Firefox. So what’s the problem?
