Working on Missing e (reblog: "Poor, poor,...
Hey Folks, I want to apologize for the time it has taken (and in advance for how long it might take) to get Missing e back up and running completely for Tumblr users. You may find yourself needing to temporarily disable Missing e or some of its features to use certain features of Tumblr. Please know that I’ll be working on tweaking the new Tumblr interface soon! cutlerish: I’m busy...
Post Control Icons Gone Wonky? Here's How to Fix...
Looks like Tumblr has gotten around to making more of the post control buttons (delete, edit, etc) into icons! This means that Missing e’s feature which created these icons is now making the new ones look wrong. To fix this, go to the Missing e settings page (here’s how), click on the Dashboard Features tab, and under the section called Dashboard Tweaks, un-check the box next to...
Reply Replies Problem
Thanks for the bug reports, folks. I will try getting to the issue with Reply Replies this weekend. I’ve been sick for the past week, so it might take me a little bit.
Yesterday's issue resolved and improving my...
It looks like yesterday’s possible issue with the “Delete Selected” button was not actually a problem. I didn’t mean to scare Missing e users when I posted the warning, but I am committed to keeping you informed and only adding value to your Tumblr experience. I believed that, though unconfirmed at the time, the issue was important enough to inform users about before I...

I’ve made style changes to fix the sidebar buttons that seemed to have repeating icons (including for the Bookmarker feature, which I forgot in the last update). Again, thanks for bearing with me. It has been a smooth move to New York, but it is still a move to a completely new place. You can update Missing e here: http://missing-e.com/update

Fixes for Tumblr Changes Coming Soon
Many users have noticed some garbling of the look of some Missing e features. I will do my best to get a fix out for this today or tomorrow. Please excuse the delay as I just moved from Toronto to New York City yesterday afternoon!
Using Chrome Beta, Dev or Chromium? Give me some...
Looks like there are some lingering issues with Missing e on non-stable versions of Chrome. Issues include Missing e control icons not showing on posts and the Quick Reblog menu not always showing up. I will be looking into this problem today.
Updates coming this weekend!
Recently, I’ve been busy navigating the murky waters of NAFTA work permits for my move from Toronto to New York City. I apologize that it has been a long time coming, but I will be working on releasing new versions of Missing e this weekend to support the newest versions of Chrome and Firefox. Please stay tuned!
Delayed Bug Fixes and the Hunt for a Job
I just wanted to apologize for the time it is taking to address some of the unfixed bugs in Missing e. Over the past little while, I’ve been flying to and from New York City for interviews during my job hunt. It has left me a little frazzled. Today is likely my last interview, so I will be able to put some more focus on Missing e starting this evening. Again, I apologize and I will keep you...
Missing e - Still To Do Soon
There are still a couple things I will be working on in the next day or two. First, Tumblr has added a R keyboard shortcut to open the manual reblog page, and Alt+R keyboard shortcut to use their fast reblog feature. This is the reason why pressing R to Quick Reblog is also opening up the manual reblog page. I will fix this. Second, I’m going to try to get tracked tags (with counts) to...
Missing e 2.13.8: Fixes for tag reblogging and... →
I’ve just released Missing e version 2.13.8 for all browsers. This release fixes the following problems: reblogging with tags from a post permalink page show a drop-down list of blogs to reblog to when quick reblogging from tag search pages I am still working on bringing tracked tags back to the sidebar. Stay tuned! You can wait until Missing e updates automatically, or force...
Chrome Photo Reply - not a Missing e problem
Please note that although many Chrome users are observing that the Tumblr photo reply feature does not appear to work, this is not a Missing e problem. The same issue occurs with Missing e disabled or not installed. Hopefully, Tumblr is looking into the issue, which has, no doubt, been submitted by many users.
Upcoming work for Missing e....
Just to let you know, I will be travelling over the weekend. However, once I’m in one place for a little while, I’m going to be working on the following fixes and features for Missing e: Display tracked tags in the sidebar, in addition to the new tag search box Fix for the tag reblogging when clicking the reblog button Fix a problem with Quick Reblog not showing drop-down for...
Oops! Are you having trouble Quick Reblogging?
I made a change to Missing e a couple hours ago that broke Quick Reblog for some users. The problem is now fixed, so if you are having trouble, simply update to the newest version: http://missing-e.com/update I apologize for any inconvenience!
Missing e 2.13.3: Some Fixes →
I’ve just released Missing e 2.13.3 with a couple of fixes: Fix an issue causing some users being unable to create Reply Replies for notes that show up in a post when you click on the notes count Safe Dash now hides the new Tumblr videos when enabled Fix a problem with multiple checkboxes showing up on messages in your inbox (part of the Ask Tweaks feature) I wanted to take an...
Missing e 2.13.2: Fix for Reblog Yourself and... →
I’ve just released a new version of Missing e that fixes some problems with the last Firefox release and also corrects a problem that added blogs incorrectly for the Reblog Yourself feature (for users that have commas in their blog titles). Update Here: http://missing-e.com/update
Missing e for Firefox - Currently Unavailable
The Firefox version of the extension is not available at the moment. I have some work to do this evening to correct some issues found by the Mozilla Add Ons site where Missing e is hosted. I will resolve the issue as soon as possible and keep you updated on when it is available!
Tumblr Dashboard Changes - Missing Things
With Tumblr’s new dashboard layout, a couple of things appear to be missing from the Tumblr sidebar. These are not Missing e changes. I may look into ways to improve it, but I will likely wait to see if Tumblr is going to fix the issues on their own or if it indicates more changes they will be making. The “Customize” button is missing in the blog sidebar. Again, this is not...
Missing e continuing to update throughout the...
Over this weekend, as I find more issues with Missing e on the new Tumblr dashboard layout, I will continue to update Missing e. However, I most likely won’t announce new versions unless they fix something major. You can check to see if your Missing e is up-to-date, by visiting the update page. If a new version is available, you’ll be able to download it there. If you are up-to-date,...
New Tumblr Dash Layout - Missing e issues I'm...
In the last hour, Tumblr pushed out a new dashboard layout. Some improvements include restoring a (partial) Tumblr blog sidebar element to the main dashboard. I will be working this weekend to apply style fixes for Missing e and look into any possible improvements. Please note that I am already hard at work on these issues: The Quick Reblog drop-down menu doesn’t show a selection...
Missing e for Safari: Not Working? Try This!
If you’ve installed Missing e for Safari on an Apple computer, there is a small chance you may find that the extension won’t actually run. This is often a problem with the Safari browser, but can sometimes be fixed without too much difficulty. If you see this e. button in your browser toolbar, you’ll know Missing e is installed. However, if you don’t see this e....
Enable replies on secondary tumblrs
thefrogman: I just wanted to let everyone know that you can now enable replies on secondary tumblrs. Just go to the specific blog’s settings page, hit the check mark, and save. A big thanks to Jacob for making this happen. You can now reply to Missing e posts! This isn’t a Missing e feature, but now part of Tumblr’s interface thanks to Jacob Bijanji!
Current issues I'm working on this weekend
A couple of issues have been brought up by Missing e users. I will be looking into them this weekend. The first is that the “open ask boxes on the dash” and avatar magnifier features appear to be opening an extra tab in some browsers. The other is a malfunctioning Quick (1-Click) Reblog feature, though I believe this may be limited to Firefox 15. Please stay tuned for updates!
Tumblr Savior v0.4.2 Released →
bjornstar: I fixed an issue with Tumblr Savior v0.4.1 with the match whole words function. It should be working again. I also submitted the Firefox version of Tumblr Savior to the Add-On Gallery but it may be a while before it gets approved, you can keep an eye on it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tumblr-savior/ You can download Tumblr Savior from the following...
Missing e 2.12.0 for Firefox Available Again!
Sorry for the small hiccup there, but Missing e is again available for Firefox again! If you want the new version now, you can update here: missing-e.com/update Please Note: A recent change to the Firefox tools that are used to create this extension have caused Missing e to be no longer be compatible with Firefox versions below 13. I will look into this to see if I can restore backwards...
Missing e 2.12.0 for Firefox: Currently...
A problem with the Firefox version of Missing e has resulted in it being temporarily unavailable for download. Chrome and Safari versions are still available as normal. I will address this as soon as I am able, which will most likely be later this evening. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Missing e: No Ads!
A handful of people have mentioned seeing ads injected into the Tumblr dashboard (not put there by Tumblr, itself). Let me assure you that Missing e does not place any ads on any site whatsoever. I firmly believe that doing so without user permission is dishonest and inappropriate. If you are seeing ad banners and the like on Tumblr, try disabling other extensions and add-ons you have...
Missing e 2.12.0: Fix for Magnifier feature →
Included in Missing e 2.12.0 is a fix for the Magnifier feature that stopped working earlier today. The fix I’ve implemented is not 100% tested, but I wanted to get something working out to you sooner. I’ve also made a few other small fixes, including improving the spacing of wrapped tags that was affected by a recent Tumblr change. Most browsers will automatically update, but if...
Problems with the Magnifier feature
Looks like a recent change to the Tumblr interface has caused the Magnifier feature not to work for photo posts. I am currently looking into this problem!
Do you get Tumblr's 'Missing e' warning multiple... →
Tumblr displays a warning message to users of Missing e, highlighting what they believe are potential risks, and ask users to acknowledge before continuing to use Tumblr. However, many users are finding that to continue using Missing e, they have to acknowledge this warning multiple times. In fact, some non-Missing e users are receiving the warning, too! First, Educate Yourself While I...
daenearys asked: I looked through the faq, and I saw a question similar to this, but I've been hearing that tumblr (not missing e itself) is deleting any accounts that are using missing e. I uninstalled it just to be safe, but is this true?
basicvocab-deactivated20130323 asked: i feel like such a lame kid for asking but i'm totally lost on how to use the keyboard shortcuts can you explain them? :)
Published asks on your dash look like text posts...
Some users are noticing this issue cropping up in the last few minutes. I just want to assure you that this is not a Missing e problem. There appears to be a Tumblr issue involved. If you want to check, you’ll find that the problem continues even with Missing e disabled, whether you’ve answered the ask with Missing e enabled or not!
Can't update Firefox? Still want to keep using...
I just updated Missing e to version 2.10.4 which should restore compatibility to people who aren’t using the most up-to-date version of Firefox. Basically, if you use Firefox and Missing e worked for you yesterday, this version should also work for you! You can update here: missing-e.com/update
Missing e missing? Are you using an old version of...
Firefox users may notice that new versions of Missing e don’t work or seem to disappear. This seems to be because the newest version of the framework Missing e is built on needs the current version of Firefox. I may be able to find a workaround, but it would only be temporary. Instead, I suggest you update Firefox to the current version (that would be 13 at the moment).
Missing e 2.10.3: Additional wonky icon fix for... →
Looks like I missed one fix for the wonky icon problem from earlier today. It only affects Tumblr users who only have one blog associated with their account. Update to version 2.10.3 here: missing-e.com/update If you have trouble, clear your browser cache after you update Missing e.
Update your Missing e to version 2.10.2! (Fixes... →
Some minor changes on Tumblr caused Missing e buttons on posts to behave oddly today (weird positions, for example). This is now fixed in version 2.10.2! Update here: missing-e.com/update If you have trouble, clear your browser cache after you update Missing e. UPDATE for Chrome users: If you were having trouble updating, it was due to a delay on the Chrome Web Store where Missing e is...
