Stock Charts Firefox Extension

January 31st, 2006

Install the Stock Charts Firefox Extension.

Isn’t it frustrating when you come across a list of ticker symbols that aren’t links? If you want to view the stock chart for the symbol, you have to do a lot of typing (and then correcting your typing mistakes!).

For example, how would you quickly view the stock charts of these symbols: FORD, MSFT, REDF, IVAC? Normally, you’d have to bring up a new tab in Firefox, go to your favorite stock charts web site, and go back and forth between tabs typing in the symbols.

Not any more. We’ve just put the finishing touches on an extension for the Firefox web browser. It lets you select one or more ticker symbols on a web page and open new tabs for them all in stocktickr,, Yahoo! Finance, or Big Charts – all in one fell swoop without any typing. Is your favorite stock web site not on the list? That’s ok because you can easily add it to the list.

Here’s an image showing the extension in action:

    Thank you for posting the question on the Mozilla forums about getBrowserSelection(). I was able to modify your extension to get it working with selected stocks again.

    […] StockTickr: StockTickr is a useful tool that allows users to quickly view stock charts for any symbol. For example, if you view a list of ticker symbols that aren’t links, you’d normally have to open up a new tab, go to a web site and paste each individual symbol in. With StockTickr, you can just highlight, right click and view the symbols in a stock website of your choice. […]
