Pops up a panel every 30mins (Time is settable) that will display a breaking news feed from Twitter or any website, so that you will never be more than 30mins away from any major news. Click outside to dismiss panel. More info in description.
About this Add-on
The "Check" button will now open the panel's url in a new tab.
Extension's icon updated 21feb2013
Have just changed the name of this extension from
Anywebpageflashpanel to ContinuousWebpageReminderPopup for clarity.
If you want, please post any likes/dislikes or feature requests for this add-on in the Reviews section. Also, if anything stops working on this add-on for any reason, please check back here to see if I am aware of it and have made a fix for it.
In addition to displaying the newsflash panel every 30 minutes it gives the user the ability to change the web address of the default Twitter news feed to any webpage on the internet that the user likes. That way you can keep aware of what is happening on another site every 30 minutes if you want. There are 3 text buttons at the bottom of browser, "Save", "Check" and "Panel". Navigating to a webpage that you wish to add as the new default page, and then clicking on the "Save" button will make it so. Clicking on the "Check" button will put up a notification of what your current stored default page is, and will open the panel's url in a new tab. And clicking "Panel" will bring up the panel anytime you wish without affecting the regular 30 minute cycle of reminders.
Go to Tools, Add-ons, Extensions, then select this add-on and click the Options button next to it to change the amount of minutes you want the pop up to occur. Also, you can adjust the size of the panel.
You can also left click and drag any link inside of the panel to your Firefox address bar and drop it in to navigate directly there.
