I have not published reviews of new Firefox extensions in a while which can be mainly attributed to the fact that I have covered the majority of good ones already here on the site and that only few new ones come out for the browser right now.

It's all Text is a new add-on for the web browser that can have a big impact on many users of it. I do not find it that useful but that is because I'm not filling out may web forms. If you do regularly, you may find this extremely useful after all.

The extension adds an edit button to text forms in the browser. A text form is any multi-line form on websites that you can use to enter text.

A click on the edit button opens your default text editor so that you can use it to write the text that you want to post on the website in question. You can alternatively right-click on any text form in the browser and select the "It's all Text" option from the context menu to open it in the editor.

This can be extremely useful if you hang out on forums a lot, on sites like Reddit, and even if you are blogging and using the text editors the applications make available to you.

The major advantage is that you can use your editor to format the text that you are writing without having to use bbcode or HTML to format the text in the textbox itself. Very useful in situations that require a good professional layout or if the form on the site is relatively small and not really usable for writing longer comments.

When you save the text in the editor, it is automatically added to the form on the website so that you only need to hit the send button on it to submit your comment or the text.
