Markdown to JIRA is just a tiny wrapper around j2m, a javascript library that converts Markdown to JIRA markup (and the other way around) that does all the work.  
It's inspired by the much more powerful Markdown Here extension, that converts Markdown to HTML (I use it for Gmail).

This extension adds an entry to your right-click menu, called JIRA Formatting that expands further in 2 entries:

- MD to JIRA
- JIRA to MD

When you right click on an issue page on JIRA, and select one of the 2 functionalities, the extension will replace the content with the equivalent markup.

The addon has been tested on the following domains:

Risk impact

Markdown to JIRA requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Markdown to JIRA if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Markdown to JIRA has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Broken in latest firefox

Seems to do the job most of the time. Somehow *[This]( does not get converted to Jira format. Still very recommended. Thanks Paolo!
