Firefox extensions+jquery: replacing words with textfields

Firefox extensions using jquery for substituting a given list of words with a text input.

Hello. I would like to have a firefox extension which does the following:

1) load jquery

2) replace words with input element of type text

3) for every text field implement a little word-matching game.


1) Load jquery (version > 1.3). I am aware that loading Jquery could be a bit complicated for FF extensions, but I would like to reuse the projects in other contextes, and work on it again. That’s why I really want to use JQuery.

More information about how to include jquery here:

2) When the Extension is active everytime a new page loads a function will be called.

The function replaces every instance a given word (configurable) in the body of the html document with a input element of type text.

The list of words to replace should be configurable in code, a javascript array is all what I need.

In the attached example the list of words to replace contains just the word “browser”, but it should work with more words.

3) For every replacement a new “game” has been created. When the user click enter after writing in a text field, the typed word will be matched with the word which have been replaced by the text field:

if the typed word is correct, than the text field will disappear, and the word will be printed like in the original text;

if the typed word is not correct, than a javascript alert will say “You didn’t guess the hidden word. Try again”.

I would like to have delivered the source code of the extension.

So you want to create quizzes on the fly. But why do you want to load jquery? You can have it embedded it in the add-on's code. Currently, the latest jquery is 1.4.2. Also you want the add-on to be compatible with Fire More
