Fixes for Missing e compatibility with the new Tumblr post icons are coming soon! Please stay tuned.
Version 2.3.15: Missing e’s problematic update
Thanks to a mistake I made late Thursday night when I uploaded a new version of Missing e, some users had a problem with the Safe Dash feature becoming activated for photo posts, despite not having turned it on. Thanks to some quick messages from your fellow users, I was able to find and fix the mistake that same night. The next problem was a change to the Dashboard Tweaks feature that replaces buttons on dashboard posts (“reblog”, “edit”, etc) with icons. Basically, I modified the image that Missing e uses, changing the order of the icons. So, for a little while some users had their icons out of place.
Note that if these problems still happen for you, all you need to do is to update Missing e (instructions later in this post).
Now that the issues have been fixed for most users, I just wanted to let you know what the changes actually were!
It used to be that when new posts are loaded into your dashboard (especially with Tumblr’s “endless scrolling” dash), Missing e would have to run through every one of them to replace icons. This wasn’t extremely slow, but it wasn’t fast either.
As of the last few versions of Missing e, this process is done once when you first load the page, and left to the browser to do for new posts. This makes icon replacement a lot faster. Most users may not notice a difference, but people using slower computers or computers that are hard at work on lots of other things may notice a speedup!
In the future, if you are experience problems with Missing e or have any questions about it, please feel free to drop by the askbox to let me know!
If you want the new version immediately, DO NOT uninstall and reinstall Missing e, instead, read the instructions on how to update:
Firefox users: Until the new version of the extension is reviewed by the Mozilla Add-Ons site, you can update just by installing the new version over top of your existing one from the versions page.
If version 2.3.15 or higher does not appear in the list, you can wait until later, or use this direct link to install.
If you have a problem with the Missing e icons on post behaving oddly, just update!
Sorry, this appears to be a problem with Chrome updating Missing e last night. I’ve since fixed it.
All you need to do is update Missing e to version 2.3.14!

Custom New Post Icons
My last fix in 1.0.46 was incomplete. I forgot to include one important change.
The real fix for not messing up custom dashboard theme new post icons is in version 1.0.48! There may still be some issues depending on when custom styles are loaded on your browser.
Missing e messing up your custom new post icons?
Some people have been noticing that Missing e seems to mess up custom dashboard styles (such as those from userstyles.org) that replace the new post icons.
I believe I’ve fixed the problem, and you can update your extension to 1.0.46 to get the fix!
