Too many issues make it unusable Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen
At first, I thought this was a pretty good app. Like many others, I'm also looking for a Firefox replacement for Echofon. It looked like it had a lot of potential, with only sound notifications, in-line thumbnails for photos and nearly real-time updating missing from the Echofon experience. But of course it was too good to be true.
The first problem I noticed was that if I clicked the close button, Twitbin would log off and I would have to click on my username and type my password in again. You're supposed to click on the Twitbin icon to close it without logging off.
You have to click on the log-in button after you type your password because the enter key does nothing. Also, if you type your password in wrong, it says "Iconrrect Password". That looks really unprofessional. Also, if you accidentally close it, the Twitbin icon that shows the number of unread tweets doesn't work anymore. I assume it starts working again if you log in after restarting Firefox.
I liked that I was able to view my feed on the right side of my browser instead of left, but it feels like some workaround tricks were used for it to work in the sidebar. In other words, it doesn't utilize a Firefox sidebar properly. When I tried to look at my history in the sidebar, it didn't work. I'm not even sure how I got it working. Click this, log off Twitbin, close Twitbin, click history, click history again, close history. Something like that. Once I got my history to appear, I couldn't get Twitbin to reappear. More trial and error to get it working again. But it is this reason that I've given up on it for now. I really hope these issues are fixed so I can give it another try.
