How to activate Mac OS Text Presets in Firefox?

more options

In the Mac OS under System Preferences→ Language & Text, you can set text presets. As I do a lot of web support work with Firebug, I have a list of presets that expand when I type.Things like -> becoming → or <c> becomes .

I cannot for the life of me find an add-on or an option in Firefox that allows Firefox to accept these text presets - the text presets will only work in Safari. Is there such an ability to turn these text presets on in Firefox?

Cheers! Chris

Hi @patrickmc,

The add-on you referenced appears to not be under development any longer, but you lead me to an even better add-on (which is great).

This one even allows complete phrases to be stored - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/mywords/
