Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent product. Has save my time on countless occasions.

A good product that became a shame Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have donated in the past.

Now this "thing" does not let me donate because the page does not exist or is not responding.

The issue comes when this shame does not let me recover any text and does not let me donate.

If any of you, try to use it you will find a useful tool until you exhaust the counter and you become a victim of this dictator called "Lazarus".

Good luck, Alberto

Useless add-on Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This thing has NEVER worked, not one single time I've had it.

Not only that, I was looking around for the reviews and clicked the title and it brought it up to the add-on page, and the +Add it to Firefox button wasn't greyed out, as if it didn't know I had it! Which tells me it's never functioned and I'm sick of trying to use it then losing a LOT of work. Either fix it, or remove it. You look shameful.

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

its getlazarus site has stopped working, so posting the bug here.

It is saving facebook new posts, but it is not saving fb comments that we make, so in case of an error in posting comment, we are not able to recover the earlier comment using lazarus.

A bug that is causing hardships.

Must have add-on

Forced Donation? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

1. The addon quality deserves 4.7 out of 5 stars!

2. The addon deserves a ZERO out of 5 when it refuses to recover a form before I complete its request to donate. What makes the whole tragic AND ridiculous is the fact that even if I'm "willing" then to follow the blackmail and donate, I can't because the lazarus website is out of function ...
Which means that I have now no means to use lazarus :-(

Friends, donations should be voluntary, not imposed upon the user ...

Lazarus still works great; just missing icon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I will try to use a throwback status bar add-on temporarily to see if I can view the Lazarus icon and then move it to the main add-on bar at top

But there IS a temporary workaround: Menu bar: Tools=>Add-ons=>"Extensions" on left=>click "Options" button in the row for the Lazarus extension you have=>"Database" tab at top=>hit "Search Lazarus" button. There everything is!

Special Note: This helped me recover recent text that "Form History Control" did NOT have...

Five stars if the developer kept up with Firefox changes to place the icon in the normal add-on bar, and kept Lazarus access in the right-click men.

Huge time-saver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Here, let me finish typing my review that is made up of about ten paragraphs, that took about an hour to type.

Whoops Firefox crashed, and I didn't save it anywhere. I've lost an hour of my time and have to start again from scratch.

This is the kind of situation that Lazarus aims to fix. If you regularly post on forums or send comments, you WILL be glad you've installed it the day Firefox decides to crash in the middle of you typing an essay.

Of course, since it saves all your forms, there can be some privacy concerns; it can be disabled in Private Browsing, and can wipe credit cards numbers so they can't be recovered. Still, if you're on a shared computer, you should be careful about what you'll type, since everything will be saved.

The only issue I have with this extension is its rare inability to restore a form: it just displays a generic "Lazarus was unable to restore this form" and nothing happens. Fortunately you can still search the database yourself, but it can be a bit annoying when you just want to recover something quickly. It doesn't happen often, however, so most of the time, it should have you covered.

Very impressed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It preserves form content across computer restart (not sure how long it keeps stuff, i think the grace period is a week or something). One click and it brings the entire contents of a form (or even multiple versions). Basically it looks like you can write a wall of text on a forum, crash your machine without having saved in any way, reboot and pick up where you left off :)

It saved my life so many times ;) One of those add-ons that everyone should have, you don't have to worry about short sessions or connection problems, simply relax and in case of emergency restore the text :)

nice

Heartbroken Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is one of those add-ons no one should be without. I am heartbroken to discover it is not compatible with latest version of android firefox. Yes, I'm tempted to find either a new browser or an old version… anything to have this life-changing add-on!

Works Well Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have used this before, and it is quite handy sometimes.

I have just re-installed it again after losing information and realising Lazarus is something I had cleared out in a cleanup.

Text boxes are something I do not normally back up and usuriously have no need to. But sometimes I type something that types a while to find and then somehow lose the text box.

Minor faults, I could not get the contact form to work, I wished to report a minor bug.

I certainly disagree with any suggestions of it being ransom-ware because it even has a preference to turn off the donate nag screen

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Lazarus only works a few times and then when you really need it, you have to 'donate' to continue.

Lazarus is an ordinary buyware product..

Must-have add, save my time so many times! Kudos to the developers.
Thanks

So Lazarus has become ransomware? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Stuck with nothing but a "donate" item in it's menu for recovering data. Great move. How to really impress your users.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

What is there to say? Lazarus just sits there ... until you need it. Then it's an absolute Godsend. I installed it after a crash cost me two hours of work. I didn't use it for three months then WHAM! A lost another two hours of work, and Lazarus recovered every word of it within 30 seconds. Absolutely brilliant :)

Utterly vital. Utterly incredible. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really, what more can I say than: "Whoops firefox crashed right in the middle of filling out that massive form/typing that massive post/article....... Oh, phew, Lazarus saved it ALL, I don't have to spend hours retyping it!"

Vital Addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Saved me a lot of work, again. :)

Lazarus opens page with blank feilds, making it useless. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

When I used it to try to get back a form, all I got, was it reopened the page, with all fields empty. It appears that their contact form on their website is also as defunct as their product. I have since uninstalled this, and will not be adding it back.
