- by iordaki iordaki, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Подскажите, пожалуйста где сохраняются настройки.
Каждый раз сбиваются при синхронизаций.
Автору, Можно сделать, чтоб все папке назначить настройки, а не каждому URL в отдельности?
- by Firefox user 12357918, 5 years agoRated 4 out of 5Я конечно долек от it технологий, но на Windows разобраться смог ,а вот на Android нет !подскажите кто в теме .и еще не помешает частоту сканирования увеличить точне уменьшить интервал между сканированием хотя бы до минуты а в идеале от 1 секунды
- by Firefox user 12312958, 5 years agoRated 3 out of 5Good, but limited. Keeps popping for embedded text randomized click bait. So it's useless for major sites. I chunked my entire bookmarks file into it, then had to delete almost all of it. Quite nice for things like simple blogs and indie game developers. You know, those rarely updated 'News' portions on lots of websites. I'll keep it for those reasons, but until the author figures out how to not trigger a false positive on "Arm&Hammer: the only name in hemorrhoid cream" I honestly can't recommend this. It would be nice if we could actually select exactly what we want scanned on a site, instead of this Scan It All approach. Or even setting it to trigger when a jpeg file tag changes. Maybe a second comparison file containing the last whatever settable number of jpeg file tags seen on a specific site, with a separate whitelist-blacklist setting for the trigger-ability of the file. Honestly, my favorite author loves to blog. Like 7 times a day. Mostly to post cat pictures. I would love to know when she is actually updating because my Update Scanner scanned the site for "Book" or "Novel" instead of "Mittens#7's rediscovered yarn!"
- by drumsibumsi, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5This is almost perfect update scanner. The ONLY disadvantage in my opinion is the absence of import/export functionality. Since I work in two places, I'd sometimes like to copy all the data to another computer. I do this by exporting/importing bookmarks, but unfortunately this does not transfer custom settings applied to pages. I hope the developer adds this functionality in some future.It sounds like you're exporting in HTML format. Firefox doesn't include custom annotations unless you back them up in JSON format (see https://support.mozilla.org/kb/restore-bookmarks-from-backup-or-move-them).
If you're still having trouble, please report this at the support site https://github.com/sneakypete81/updatescanner/issues.
- by Tevi, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5Addon is great as mentioned previously. You might have this feature but I can't find it in the help file. Didn't know how to contact developer directly so I'm posting this here.
I'm looking to exclude certain classes or ids and all their children elements from the scans or check for updates in a specific element. Since the scanner operates before ad-block many websites that use ads, site wide notifications, chat boxes, or online-users do not scan well. Better control of what's scanned will reduce my false positives.
- by trboytr, 5 years agoRated 2 out of 5By coincidence i detected, that if i open a watched website with Update Scanner to see the changes, that it bypasses the addons Adblock Plus and Request Policy Continued.
It means there are connections to Ads and Requests that are usually blocked by these Addons.
I don't know if it is intended or a bug or there are no other methods to make Update Scanner watching/showing website changes.
Until there are any solutions to solve the bypass i have to deactivate Update Scanner or uninstall it if there won't be any solutions.
- by RoxMarty, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5Неплохая реализация. Хорошая штука. Жаль только, что настроек крайне мало и нельзя выбирать только нужную часть страницы для проверки на обновление
Very useful. Thanks! If you will do more preferences (where I can choose parts of pages only what I need) it would be perfect!
- by daidardi, 5 years agoRated 4 out of 5I'd like to suggest a feature to let user to put preferences file (I don't where is) in a specific path folder (ex. dropbox directory) so I can sync the scanning... I use many pc all synced. For this addon I need to set every site into every device! :\
- by Firefox user 11763044, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5Please,
add compatibility with Firefox ESR (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/faq/)
it's stable version of Firefox.
UPD. But what about new bug fixes in 3.2.0? Firefox ESR exist approximately half year.
- by kazerniel, 5 years agoRated 3 out of 5Even though I tell it to only notify of more than 500 character changes and tell it to ignore number changes, it still alerts me with small character number changes... That said I use Firefox 38, I'm not sure how I'm able to run this, as the addon page says my version is not supported.
- by Jan Gundtofte-Bruun, 6 years agoRated 3 out of 5Best addon I know for keeping track of infrequently visited sites. The notification and its ability to open the changed page as a new tab is incredibly handy.
However, it would be *much* better if you could specify which *part* of a page (html element) you wanted to keep track of, so that dynamic content and other irrelevant parts don't trigger notifications.
- by white_car, 6 years agoRated 1 out of 5So many alerts of webpages changing, so I check em out... sure enough, JUST THE NUMBERS have changed. I enabled "ignore number changes" but still receive alerts. Time to find a proper update scanner.
- by Firefox user 11619692, 6 years agoRated 4 out of 5very nice add-on! works perfectly! thank you for developing!
Is it possible to exclude several parts of sites?
There is a website with a small weather stamp, which changes every few minutes and i don't need it. This would be a small part that I would need to exclude from the rest which should be controlled
