Should I update to latest version? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for all your hard work. This extension has been great! Been using it for years
As Mozilla seems to be making future development/updates of really great extensions “precarious” I wanted to find out if this update will be problematic or breakdown in the future? In other words should I stay where I’m at?
I’m currently using the last version. I’ve disabled auto updates because new FF compliance's have already broken a few extensions (or will cause breakdown in the future). The first example of this coming to mind is/was X-Notifier. The last two versions are FF compliant, but don’t function. They…. suck. Not the developers fault, he warned months ago this would happen with Moz changing policies and updates. Yet everyone initially screamed at him when it broke down. There was a temporarily a work around, rolling back 2 versions. This made everything work again, but then with another FF update, even the legacy version only partly works.
So In regards to your extension, would you recommend updating to the latest version, or stay with the previous one which I’m running?
My Machine; Window 7 64 bit, latest FF 64 bit version for windows.
One more issue, and if you don’t have time for this one no problem.
I’ve read that if users install FF 52 ESR (I’m not sure what it is and if it’s secure), all legacy versions will work. Wouldn’t using a legacy version of FF, as well as extension present a security risk?
This really sucks for FF developers and users. I really hate Chrome, it’s heavy on resources, super proprietary, nosy and intrusive as hell. I have no idea why Moz is killing the best part of FF, the extensions. Especially security and utilities extensions. The other stuff I could care less.
Also, if Moz is going to make life difficult to impossible (depending on which developer you’re talking to, and their extension) for developers, why don’t you all go to Opera? I’m betting a lot of people would follow.
It’s my second choice browser, and although it’s Chromium based, it’s lightweight and even has a VPN built in. But they have mostly lame apps.
You’re opinion/feedback on this whole Moz turning FF into Chrome and how to proceed would be appreciated!
Thanks for every thing!
ReminderFox Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great program. works better than any of the other 10 downloaded and tried!!
Works great in SeaMonkey 2.46 (64-bit)! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am using the x86/x64 Mozilla build of SeaMonkey 2.46, and I find that ReminderFox 188.8.131.52.3 works GREAT. So glad to have this. It does exactly what I want without being bloatware. (The so-called "90s style" that another reviewer criticized has just enough features and capabilities.) I have been using this to remind me of tasks that I must do daily and weekly. An absolutely essential extension for me.
The developers have indicated they might abandon ReminderFox due to changes in Firefox technology. I would like to encourage them to continue to develop it for SeaMonkey and for Pale Moon, which is continuing to support "legacy" add-ons.
(N.B. I may have had to use the SeaMonkey converter or fiddle with the install.rdf file to get it to install. Cannot quite recall.)

Nice but 90s style Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This is the best caldav tool for Firefox. Just one is available:) It's pretty functional, but stuck in 90's with design, just like the browser itself. Unlike Chromium(R), you can't have sticky popup dialog to quickly grab data from a note, which people want to do often (a note must be quick to access, it's a note! not a Word document). In fact a new window is open, spawning a new bar in Windows taskbar, so as you switch between apps to paste data, you will have hard time to return to Firefox. And yet another windows opens to actually read anote. Then after utilizing the data copied, one needs to find those 2 windows and close them manually. 90s!
Still a great plugin, ez to plug a source from EAS mail provider. The hint system is impressive. Sorry for lot of irony, but transition from Chromium to Firefox is extremelly painful, I wish it all gets better otherwise FF loses remaining 10% market share if ppl not willing to change their mindset to 10's. And that's a sad fact:/

options window does not close Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Quick Alarm quirks Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Great Addon! Lately I'm using more often Quick Alarm and I noticed 2 quirks:
1. After 12pm it asks to select a future date (although its date is current) - if you say OK it still enters the current date but inserts a nr. of about 600-700 minutes - annoying!
(if you click the calendar - and see it's current date and OK it - it does not do the above problem)
2. Quite a few times (not from begining) it changes the amount (minutes) you entered with a default(?) 720. That will change 1 minute to a day!! I could not find yet what is triggered by (it may be resulted from above problem).
Would you please fix these 2 ASAP??
Love it - Perfect for my work reminders - Fast and Easy to use Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I work for a trucking company and we have a LOT of things that expire such as annual or quarterly permits for our equipment, as well as CDL's & Med Cards for the drivers. Sometimes I get sidetracked and forget to make a phone call etc and a simple posty note reminder does not work for me. I have so many posty notes all over my office they all started to blend in. Even the ones on my calendar get overlooked. I also have a paper copy of all of my expirations, but a paper can't hop out of the folder and remind you that you have something that is about to expire. I used to try and add all of these reminders to my Office 365/Outlook calendar, but that is such a tedious task and left me frustrated and annoyed. Reminder Fox is so much more simple and user friendly. I really like how the pop up is enough to get your attention, but it does not annoy you. It is SO easy to snooze a reminder if you don't have time to deal with it when you first see the pop up. One thing I do wish there was an option for would be to set a reminder to repeat every 90 days, or just a custom box that said "repeat reminder every "X" days" where you could fill in your own amount of days. I have a lot of quarterly permits that expire every 90 days and if I could set a reminder to repeat every 90 days that would rock my socks! Thank you to the developer for taking the time to make this, it is a real sanity saver for me!!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199.3).
French Translation Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Just to porpose a new french translation :
ReminderFox affiche et gère des listes de mémos/Choses à faire.
Il s'assure que vous vous rappeliez de toutes vos dates importantes grâce à des listes simples et des alertes, intégrées au navigateur. Pas besoin d'agenda !
Notification sound can't be disabled Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like this addon and have used it for years. But with FF49, it started playing a Windows notification-type sound everytime FF opens. I think the popup slider is what triggers the notification sound. So I disabled the setting to play a sound with Reminderfox notifications. It works for a while, but hours or days later, the sound setting is re-checked by itself and the sound reappears every time Firefox is opened. Very annoying, as I prefer a quieter PC. Please fix.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52.3). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
alerts are gone after FF crash Rated 2 out of 5 stars
My FF crashes after insufficient disk space on my SSD. After that all my events in reminderfox are missing. Where can I get those alerts back?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206.3).
Bad, especially with Google calendar Rated 1 out of 5 stars
While start new events:
1) uncomfortable data set - always start from first day of month instead of the current date;
2) this also applies to the setting of the time;
2) not understand the day of the week - shows only the days of the month.
Google calendar: changed in ReminderFox events still begin at the previously set time.

Nice. Works well on FF 45 with Mavericks Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Nice. And particularly like the little stopwatch reminder clock.
New problems for me with latest update Rated 4 out of 5 stars
While the latest update solved the problem of not being able to rearrange tabs, in seems to have some new bugs and disimprovements:
1. One must now click on the little X in the upper right corner of the slider to close it. Before, clicking anywhere on the slider would close it.
2. Why the delay and slow fade-out after clicking the X for the slider to disappear? This is annoying if the slider is obscuring something on the page that one is looking at.
Back to normal! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
