Why the project is abandoned? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Why? It work discretely yet, but on some site like Youtube, it doesn't work anymore. Furthermore the Lazarus home page no longer opens

Works in Pale Moon 26.2.2 (mostly) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It doesn't work on YouTube comments, Facebook posts and comments, or Yahoo discussion forum posts, which is IRRITATING. I would switch to a better product, if they supported those sites, but I don't know of any.

Works for me! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I wonder why the recent comments are so negative.

The add-on still works beautifully for me (Firefox 46.0.1).
It is very helpful when one experiences an unreliable connection, a browser crash or a site bug!

if only it could resurrect itself Rated 1 out of 5 stars

stop rating this broken addon 5 stars on nostalgia and wishful thinking alone, it doesn't work and likely never will since the developer fell into a black-hole.

The irony being, Lazarus now more popular in death than it ever was when it actually worked. The paranoid fanatics always dogged this extension for being a "security" risk blah blah, but all that was a long time ago.

@SierraCircle- did you too fall into a black-hole? its been almost a year since you mentioned taking over this project and nothing.....it would seem there will be no resurrection for Lazarus.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Like others have said, it now basically does nothing but claim it's doing a good job and prompt me to donate to a site that never loads. Occasionally it'll bring back a text block or form, but I just spent hours on a text block that Lazarus claims to have saved, but it's refusing to actually bring it back. This needs to be fixed pronto or I'll be switching to another extension.

Not working at YouTube Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Addon do not working at YouTube.

Formerly 5* fantastic. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This is for the 28 April 2016 update
Refuses to do anything except prompt me to donate, but then will not connect to web site to do so.
Therefore totally useless.

I unclicked "replace credit card numbers" Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Because then it will NOT replace all my numbers with 00000. For example EAN barcode numbers. An EAN-13 barcode (originally European Article Number) is a 13 digit (12 data and 1 check) barcoding standard. // Too bad I do not know a way to disable this addon for FloatNotes (=another Firefox addon), Facebook Messenger, Facebook, Google Search, Iherb, Amazon, ebay.... I have to manually delete some data to shrink the database.

Once a great addon Rated 1 out of 5 stars

But now has turned into a shill / scam that constantly asks for donations and, if you don't, it just erases every stored data !
I now use and recommend "Form History Control" which is much more configurable and doesn't nag you constantly with donations requests.

super Tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hat mich schon unzählige Male gerettet, besonders weil es auch die langen Text-Boxen sichert.

Please, give continuation to this excelent Addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best password-manager and form-history EVER.
Please, developers help bringing this project back to life!

Fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I first learnt about Lazarus when I meet the author of the software for the first time. At the time it seemed like a good idea but not something I would find useful. Until a form I was working on crapped out :( No big deal it was not that mush time spent. Then another time I lost a bunch of stuff from a text field. I decided to install Lazarus. It is really very good. Another thing I have found it to be useful for is on websites which time you out for a session or even more useful any kind of repudiative form so you can quickly complete the form the same as the last time you completed.

I hope that in the future I connect again with the developer to say thank you for making such a great plugin.

Please add support to Redactor Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The add-on is good, but doesn't save all forms.
Please add support to Redactor

Laz worked for me today (firefox 44) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just spent an hour filling out a (horrendous) web form. There was a glitch in the Matrix and the form disappeared. Thanks to Laz, I recovered 95% of my effort.

To SierraCircle -- if you can resurrect this app, it would be spectacular. You don't need it often, but it saved me this time.

And I don't mind donating. My strategy was to donate $5 for every big save. But the old website is dead.

Can't use 'search', getlazarus.com site down and emails to support@lazarusfr.com just bounce back Rated 2 out of 5 stars

One never knows just how important an Add-on is to one's daily work flow until it stops working. :( When I try the Search function, all I get is a blank window with a "Done" button. It had been working flawlessly for years. If the support email or website worked I wouldn't be reporting this problem in a review. I hope the developer is still around to assist.

Attempting to Revive this add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have written the developer of this add-on asking if the community could take over the development and open-source it. I have not heard back yet. I plan on giving it a little more time and if do not hear from him I will start a git-hub repository so we can clean this up and get things functional.
In particular:
# remove the Donate requests
# add the ability to ignore certain pages (don't save forms for specific pages)
# add a way to access search without the statusbar

I am sure there are a few other features folks would like to see added. For now, if you are like me (and tons of other users), this is the only addon that does what it does, and you use it every day. Having the "Donate" request come up just at the moment you need it is very aggravating, especially now that the developer has dropped off the face of the earth.

I have dug around in the code and disabled the Donate request, but unfortunately, changing any of the code causes the addon to lose its Mozilla signature, so you can only use the edited version if you run Firefox Nightly and allow for unsigned addons...as such, I will need to rewrite the addon and get Mozilla approval to list it as a new Addon so it can be signed properly.

For anyone would like to help out in the rewrite, I will post the github repository here once I open it.

Meanwhile, be patient and hopefully we can get this wonderful addon back on track!

A real Godsend Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has saved me more than once from losing a lot of time typing. But does anyone know how to configure it to save to a different location (for database)? Thanks

WORKS GREAT - but "BEGWARE" Rated 2 out of 5 stars

BUT, that's cause I know enuff ocde to "bump" the extensions version thingy.



Other than the "Begware Bug" It works great

Great, but in dire need of an update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Lazarus has been saving my butt for years now, I've even paired it with another add-on for more effective recovery (GhostEdit, Sublime Text 3, and the GhostEdit-plugin for that!), I NEVER lose text in any sort of web field. The fact it uses encryption to store your text is just icing on the cake! My only gripe, it's outdated by a few years, and new web-form types have come around that it no longer works with, namely Youtube and Google+. I work around this by using GhostText in those situations, but it would be nice if Lazarus played along as well. Still, I cannot knock this add-on for that, it functions very well, rarely a hiccup, and does everything it sets out to! One of my essentials, I just hope the developer can find the time to bring it up to 2015.

A lifesaver, but doesn't work on everything Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This has saved me from losing what I've written so many times, but unfortunately it doesn't work on Youtube (or Google+), and I've been routinely losing comments I've typed due to various issues (sidebar closing when clicking out, accidentally hitting the back/forward button on my mouse).

Just now I've lost something extremely important (yes, on Youtube, go figure), and have come here to check for updates, only to find that it hasn't been updated since 2011.

I will now go try to look for another addon so this never happens again.

Good while it lasted.

Edit: Nothing else seems to exist, which just boggles my mind.

Edit2: The author's site is down; it looks like this addon will never be updated again.
