The official “Blog This in Windows Live Writer” will add a quickly blogging button to your Firefox browser.

Click that button and it will open a new instance of Windows Live Writer pre-populated with the post title, URL and a web snippet of the web page that’s currently open in your Firefox windows.

Microsoft released the Blog This extension for Firefox in 2008 but they haven’t updated the add-on since then and as a result, it’s not compatible with the newer versions of Firefox like Firefox 3.6 or Firefox 3.7 which is still in alpha.

If you are missing Blog This in Firefox, here’s something for you. I have updated the extension to make it work with the newer versions of Firefox. Just download this file (Right Click – > Save Link) to your desktop and drag it your Firefox window.

That’s it! Happy blogging with Windows Live Writer.
