TiddlyWiki probably needs no introduction. This nifty little personal non-linear notebook has been around for quite a while, and it has a large base of devoted users. Until recently, TiddlyWiki worked fine with practically any browser, including Mozilla Firefox. But under-the-hood tweaks in the latest release of the popular web browser brought some bad news for TiddlyWiki users: starting with Firefox 15, TiddlyWiki could no longer save changes. To rectify this unfortunate situation, Jeremy Ruston (the original developer of TiddlyWiki) released the TiddlyFox add-on.


Install the add-on, and you'll be prompted to enable the saving functionality when you restart the browser. No muss, no fuss. While the add-on provides a workaround for Firefox users, it's not the ideal solution to the problem, as it makes TiddlyWiki less portable. Still, it's better than nothing.
