  • Needed something to hold my browser over the top when I watch videos with windows command shutdown -s -t active.
    Worked fine on the old computer with windows 7, but now my windows 10 notifications that the computer will be turned off after X minutes overpower this add-on and sadly show over the mozilla.
  • (Edit: It's now slightly more open source, and while I'm not very familiar with exe building, the entire actual program seems to be missing, this is building a shell. Why not just post the project?)

    Requires external program to work, fine. What's less fine is that although it claims it's open source, the source is nowhere to be found on Github. The zip-file he's labeled as "source" in releases only has a config file and the HTML used to explain that "it's totes not a virus and 300kb is too small to fit one in" (you could. Another red flag).

    I wouldn't mind closed source, but when it claims to be transparent, and it's not, that raises red flags. The exe is also not signed by MS and flags up as adware in some antivirus software (may be false positives). Point is I don't trust it, and I don't think you should either. Releasing the actual source would probably fix this concern.
    Hello,

    sorry it has taken me this long but now it's really transparent - I've put the source code in the master branch and everyone can build his own host app,

    Thank you,

  • Why the AOT.exe is not open source?
    This is the virus scan results: https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/984ff236c742c7c490965dbee5b35523e379524af8ced44527fb5650d051de29/detection
    Hello Gabriel,

    sorry it has taken me this long but now it's really transparent - I've put the source code in the master branch and everyone can build his own host app.

    As you'll see, there are false positives in antivirus results sometimes,

    Thank you,

  • Works. But hopefully there is no virus. LOL
  • Worked exactly advertised. Literally 30 seconds to download and run AOT.exe and I can pin Firefox on top.
  • Thank you very much.
    I use it in combination with the YouTube Popup "https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-video-popup/" and use the shortcut function to activate it.

    Great Work.
  • You should definitely change the icon of the AOT.exe into the pin from the extension! The gift box looks so suspicous. I even forgot what it was for, and deleted it after on :D
    Hello,

  • This would be a lot more useful if it resided in the address bar icons (alongside the screenshot, pocket, etc because my use-case for this would be when I have a popped out window. And commonly, those types of windows only show the address bar. The regular addon buttons aren't there.
    Hello,

    I'll consider your suggestions,

    Anyway, you can still use Ctrl+Shift+F7 to switch Always on Top state,

  • This addon does work, I know that it seems sketchy that you need to download a file to make it work but bear with me.

    First install the addon and click the thumbnail icon (or the shortcut ctrl+shift+f7) download the extra file. Unpack it and copy the files to your firefox addon folder.

    To find your firefox addon folder go to about:support in your firefox browser and there should be an area called profile folder, click the button next to it labelled "open folder". Now copy the install, uninstall and aot files into that folder.

    Now run the install file and your good to go. If you press the thumbnail icon (or shortcut keys) the firefox window will stay on top. Press the key again to stop the firefox window from being on top.

    This addon is great, it only got 4 stars because of the extra digging I had to do to get it to work (I'm a windows user by the way). If you could find a way to fully automate the process this addon would be a perfect 5.
    Hello!
    Thank you for such a detailed manual!

    Not all the items were necessary but it's not important now:
    I've prepared a simplified installation, it contains only one file which you have to save and run, that's all

  • Installed this addon, used ctrl+shift+F7 shortcut and all i got was window telling me to download that addon from github repository, and link to some packed archive with exe file. Not suspicious at all.
