Lazarus - Restore Lost Forms with a Single Click (A Firefox Add-on)

In his Firefox is your Friend post, Greg mentioned that there are hundreds of FREE Add-ons that enhance the functionality of Firefox.  One of the coolest is Lazarus.  The current version doesn't bring people back from the dead. (Although maybe they are working on a paid version that does...)

What does Lazarus Do? (Directly from the people who make it)

Ever had one of those "oh $*#@" moments when you realize you've just lost half an hour of your life because something went wrong while you were entering stuff into a web form and there doesn't seem to be any way to recover it? If so, you need Lazarus. If not, install it anyway, before disaster strikes!

Lazarus securely saves forms as you type, allowing you to safely recover your lost work after server timeouts, network issues, browser crashes, power failures, and all the other things that can go wrong while you're entering forms, editing content, writing webmail, etc, etc, etc..

How to get Lazarus (Firefox Only)

  1. Click Here
  2. Click the green "Add to Firefox button"
  3. Click the "Allow" button in the upper right of the screen
  4. Click "Install Now"
  5. Restart Firefox

You can now use Lazarus by right clicking a web form and choose recover text or recover form!

I used this feature a few days ago. I had uploaded photos to our facebook fan page I am creating. I had finished writing descriptions of each photo and then had an interruption in the wireless network. All my entries vanished. I used Lazarus and it magically re-filled in all of my boxes. Thank you for the time and aggravation saver.
