Firefox It's All Text Extension

The Firefox add-in It's All Text is a badly named but somewhat useful extension. After installing it, it didn't become useful until I had to read long bug descriptions in small textarea fields. Using this extension, I can open a text editor window with the contents of a textarea field, edit, print, save, etc., and even write the changes back into the field.

For a while, I used Resizable Form Fields to enlarge the bug description fields but sometimes I accidentally resize small controls such as drop-down lists, so I stopped using that extension.
