Bitly shortening doesn't always work [FIXED]

Post by Mecki » Wed Oct 30, 2013 7:58 pm

Using Firefox 25 and Flagfox 4.2.14, sometimes bitly URL shortening works as expected, but sometimes it doesn't. Am I the only person with this problem or has someone else already noticed a similar problem? When it does not work, the bitly page opens correctly, but the input filed is empty (it says "Paste a link to shorten it"). Any ideas?

Bit.ly changed their API (a few times, I think) and it's not compatible with Flagfox 4.2.x anymore. Flagfox 4.2.17 dropped it from the default actions list. Flagfox 5.0b1 adds back a new working version, however I'm still listing Tiny URL as the new default URL shortener.
