I had been using ecto and the ectoize bookmarklet for a long time to log useful info off the web.
What ectoize does is it copies any text you have selected on a webpage and copies it into a new entry along with the page title enclosed in an hyperlink to the original page. At that point, you can either just log the quotation or if you want to post about it, you can quickly write around the core of the entry. It automates creating a weblog entry and then handcopying the URL and the text and pasting them into the new entry.
One day I managed to disable ectoize in Firefox by pressing enter while the ‘Remember this choice for all future instances’ box was ticked.
I was unable to reenable the ectoize bookmarklet – once fully disabled, clicking on the bookmarklet does nothing. Nowhere in the Firefox preferences can you fix this. It’s not listed under Application Helpers.
I have it working again now, but the solution is very hard to find. It’s buried in a forum entry over in the Kula support forum which doesn’t appear to be indexed by Google. So here is the solution where everybody can find it.

I am glad you are ignoring the weak sisters of Europe and the UN….. Those EU governments have become so unbelievably corrupt, it makes me sick to my stomach… Unfortunately, you started out fighting this too methodically….all the key targets should have been massively destroyed the first week…all the key assassinations the first day….Nasrullah should have been taken out the first hour of the war… A lengthy war gives the terrorist appeasers time to martial their propaganda machine … You had Iran and Syria cowering the first week…but since you didnt apply overwhelming force, they have become emboldened… You still need to finish them off…or you will have wasted your war.
