- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13731281, vor 3 JahrenInitially I was impressed. However a way to continue with more 'aliases' does not present itself clearly. Are there more?....or was this just a flash in the pan !!??
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon dali@52, vor 3 JahrenHi, I figured out how to work it. The extension says that only 5 aliases can be used. Can you explain that? 5 per day, month or what? I would also like to know if one of these generated alias emails can be used to sign in to sites which are just temporary. In case it were possible, would the verification email be sent to the Firefox email address? I appreciate the clarifications as they don't seem to be listed in your website. Thanks5 aliases total. You can use the generated alias emails to sign up to any site. All emails sent to an alias will be forwarded to the primary email address on your Firefox Account.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 16649641, vor 3 JahrenThis is an excellent idea, but I have been having issues with sites recently. The most recent one says, "Email not valid. Please use a valid working email address.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon AC1556, vor 3 JahrenIt's nice and works for most sites but it would be useful to have an easy way of auto filling the email address on new signups. Right now you have to go to the Relay website and copy the address every time.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon vldr, vor 3 JahrenThe idea and fact that mozilla offers this is admirable of course. But the actual implementation makes it useless (at least for my purposes) and not worth installing an extension for.
- max 5 aliases
- not able to choose where emails get relayed to
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon BirchTreeCoconut, vor 3 JahrenWhy can't I just simply copy my relay address, why should i click on the add-on icon, click "Manage All ALiases", go to a new tab and copy it from there? I have Relay icon literally near of e-mail form, it MUST show my aliases by click.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Atrazine, vor 3 Jahren+ Alias email addresses created on-the-fly as well as in the alias management tab
+ Automatic and manual tagging of aliases with where they are used
- inability to influence the naming of the cryptic alias
- Create-alias symbol in email fields disrupts password manager auto-type features, like in KeePass. This is because the symbol is included in the field order and thus accessible with the keyboard TAB- and SPACE-keys. Workaround: add an auto-type entry to compensate when FF Relay is active.
- No ability to use the alias to respond to received messages
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Rob, vor 3 JahrenUnfortunately Firefox Relay uses Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES). I despise Amazon and everything that they and Jeff Bezos stand for. Personally I do not do any business with Amazon and that includes Amazon AWS, and I wish that Firefox/Mozilla would find a better alternative for the core email service it is based on. Perhaps protonmail from Switzerland could provide this, which would be much better and ethically acceptable.
Regarding this add-on: The add-on works fine, but doesn't really add much useful functionality apart from being able to register an alias for relay addresses. The relay icon in any form field that accepts email is something that doesn't add anything for me, but it can be switched off. Instead of this add-on I prefer to use firefox lockwise for the usernames or email addreses and optionally the passwords.
Regarding Firefox Relay service: The number of 5 relay addresses is too little for my use case, also it would be good functionality that after switching off forwarding you'd be able to create a new relay address.
Some users have reported that some websites incorrectly assume these addresses to be temporary email. I believe this comes from the randomised hash in front of the @ sign. This could be circumvented by allowing manual entry of (part of) a username in a relay address.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon livedehtfoeman, vor 3 JahrenGreat idea, but txwo major flaws in the implementation:
- No way to quickly access existing / generate new email aliases from extension icon (it should display 1/ nb of aliases 2/ existing aliases 3/ generate new alias.)
- Relay icon on email fields clashes with password manager icon.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 14873611, vor 3 JahrenAwesome, just one HUGE improvement suggestion. On the button to add a Relay email, add the option to select from the already created aliases. Having click on the extension, manage aliases, copy the wanted alias, then go back to the tab and paste it is unnecessarily complicated.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 14066756, vor 3 Jahrenrelay.firefox.com fails DMARC on postfix MTA just like all other mails sent from firefox.com via amazonses service so this will only work for me until DMARC is enforced
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13453342, vor 3 JahrenGreat idea. However, the first email I've received through this service seems to have been garbled due to encoding problems?
https://postimg.cc/9rhPDJHvWe just deployed a new release which should fix this issue. If it does, can you let us know here? (And maybe update your review so other users will also know it's working?)
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Yatt, vor 3 JahrenIt would be great if whenever I click on the relay icon on the taskbar to display the list of aliases instead of clicking on the icon then clicking on manange my all aliases which will take me to a new tab just to copy my aliases.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 16240798, vor 3 JahrenKnow this is probably not the Place (though believe it is relevant) but would the Developer mind responding to Review by: juan riccio posted nearby.
Not a user yet but am very interested in this. Tnx (3 Star for Middle of the Road, Had to install to review, Had to rate to Review,,,I think. Thank you Again)
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Ince Hamza, vor 3 JahrenI love it, but some bugs are really annoying.
It ruins lot of input fields, even basic website such as Google. I can't wait for improvement, really nice extension. :)
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Firefox-Benutzer 13619449, vor 3 JahrenLike others have said - I love the idea, but just doesn't work for enough sites that I want it for (mostly social media or adult-oriented websites).
Update - doesn't work with Flickr
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon zzz, vor 3 JahrenWas working perfectly the past two months until recently. No longer getting emails forwarded from the previous two weeks from any alias. Also does not work with Privacy.com
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon Cosmic_Annihilation, vor 3 JahrenThis service is a great idea in principle and I hope it helps funding Firefox. But I already found sites that are blocking these alias email addresses, probably because it's too easy to simply block the relay.firefox.com domain. I'm not directly blaming Mozilla for this but hopefully new versions of the service will make it harder for sites to block the aliases.
- Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternenvon tinytoast, vor 3 JahrenThe idea of a relay junkmail with option to enable/disable redirection is excellent!
However, I find the addon and the user experience to be near useless.
BEST UX practice:
1. Click on email field, addon suggests to input relay address.
2. Click on any alias, it gets submitted to field. Nice and easy.
1. Click email field, addons says "You have X aliases left", only "Manage" button available;
2. Click Manage, get redirected to Mozilla sign in page;
3. Sign in to Mozilla;
4. Manually copy alias from the list;
5. Go back to page with email field;
6. Manually paste the alias.Several Relay users have suggested similar enhancements and we have this use case on our roadmap. Thanks for taking the time to leave such detailed feedback.
