I love the idea Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I love the idea of being able to see the conversion rates like this, but I wanted to be able to see conversion between USD and ETH. Also the "code" for Ether is ETH, so you should probably change that in the add-on as well as the page showing all the supported currencies.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.9).
Thanks for the feedback, requested feature added
It should be available in a few days after Mozilla's review in version 5 of the addon.
Tickers don't update after last fix Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Ok, the last fix worked and I can see the tickers again, but they seem stuck. For example, Bitpay shows $433 while now Bitpay rate is $420. My update frequency is set to the default: 120 seconds.
Ps: I use the tickers on "The addon bar (restored)". Could it affect this extension?
This happens when the provider is down
I experienced this when the data provider (Kraken is lately a good example) is down.
The add-on will show the last price and if no new price is available for whatever reason (server is down or they banned your IP for trying too many times in a few seconds), then the last know price will still be shown.
Still great Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Vicurex and Craptsy should both be removed.
Shows as blank often although ticker is there if you mouse hover. Clearing fonts cache does not fix.
Thanks, I just updated and released a new version with fix
Thanks, I just updated and released a new version with fix (pending Mozilla's review)
Best bitcoin ticker out there Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Best Bitcoin ticker out there, lightweight, practical, configurable.
Can you please add Ethereum prices also?
Ether price is supported
Hi, thanks for the review.
As for the Ethereum price, in version 4.6 of the addon you can find Ether prices from a couple of exchanges at the bottom of the list.
Display problem with FF 44 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The values of bitcoin no longer appear on the FF bar.
I was instead "----"
Which price provider/exchange?
If it's a price coming from Kraken, it's just because their website is down for maintenance, I just saw the problem a few minutes before your message, that's why I assume it could be the reason.
If it's another price provider/exchange try closing and opening Firefox and let me know in the comment or by email the name of the exchange so I can help you.
so far so good, even better now Rated 5 out of 5 stars
now there's no reason for me to holding back. All i need from a ticker add-on is fulfilled. Long live for this add-on. :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.6). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
With the update works perfectly again, but not on OSX... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I have a PC and Mac. On Windows it's running perfectly since the last update, but on Mac (I have a MBP Retina 15") I get scrollbars around the exchange quotes...
Please fix it. ;-)
Useful feedback and hopefully fixed
Thanks for the feedback.
Unfortunately, I don´t have a Mac but I can try next week to take a look in that area of the code and maybe produce a fixed version that you can test.
Contact me by email if you´re interested in testing it on your Mac.
Version 4.4 has been released with a fix increasing the size of the tickers, let me know if this fixed the problems in Mac OSX version of Firefox.
Simply the best. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
4.3 with the new widget addon is simply god-tier. Thanks for the hard workThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.3).
Rated 2 out of 5 stars
very bad idea to make it only in a useless toolbar, make it seperate elements that we can move around AGAIN please.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1).
That was Firefox's decission, widgets are not supported anymore in FF40
The old Widgets used by this addon are no longer supported by Firefox so the only options I had left are the current toolbar or the ugly box on the navigation bar.
I put a lot of effort in transforming the old addon into the new toolbar so at least the addon would not die completely after the Firefox update.
Note if you have Firefox 39 or older, I recommend you to use the previous version (2.x) of this addon that are still available here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitcoin-price-ticker/versions/
28/08/2015 - Update:
I made a breakthrough discovery in the Firefox's library and I may have found a way to build custom elements that look like the old Widgets we had before.
I'm working a lot on it and I'm not sure when it will be ready but at least now I have a hope this addon can look again like it was before Firefox 40.
29/08/2015 - Update:
Fixed, version 4.2 is available!
It comes with tickers that can be positioned anywhere in the navigation bar.
Let me know if you have any problems or if you like it :)
I loved using this addon but now it's disappeared Rated 4 out of 5 stars
This addon has disappeared since upgraded to firefox 40.0 I tried creating a new profile even and nothing brings it back :(This review is for a previous version of the add-on (22.214.171.124).
Completely new version is now available
From version 40, Firefox stopped supporting the Widgets used to display price tickers in the navigation bar.
I have been working like a beast in the last two weeks to rewrite the addon for the new Firefox UI.
The new working version was send to Mozilla yesterday for review and I assume it will take a few days until the process is completed.
UPDATE: Good news, the new re-made version passed the review and is now available, you should get an update in the coming hours.
This is a great add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great add-on. Good to see XMR represented dev! Five stars.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199).
XMR already available
Monero was added as per request on version 2.4.8, around April this year.
It's at the end of the list, currently the 5th position from the end.
Which version of the add-on do you have?
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Nice!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This add-on already offers a large choice of exchanges and currencies. Being able to compare the prices at a glance is great.
In addition, new features are added to this add-on on a regular basis.
It would be wonderful if European exchange bitcoin-central.net could be supported by this add-on. It is used by many people (same daily volume as BTCe or Localbitcoins). There seems to be an API for trading, but I don't know if there is one to get prices. Thanks !
Thanks, I've just done some research and found the API for bitcoin-central so I'll add them to the next release.
UPDATE 29-02-2014: Released 1.9.5 with request, enjoy it!
Worldcoin as well? Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Hi the ticker is a great idea. I was just wondering if you could include Worldcoin in your upcoming additions?
That would be great. Thanks.
Hi William, I'm not a friend of adding lots of new currencies to the ticker for usability problems but today I make an exception and WDC will be included in the next release ;)UPDATE 10-02-2014: Worldcoin available since version 1.9.1
Perfeito! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Agora com o Mercado BitCoin ficou excelente! Parabéns!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1-signed).
Thanks Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Super, has already entered a value in the Euro-Litecoin :-) Thank you very much :-)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1-signed). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Very Good Ticker! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I like the additional options; increase, decrease, etc. Have you thought about adding other alt coins asides from LiteCoins? That'd be a great addition. Also, BitStamp has been $??? for a few days now. I'm not sure if you're aware but in the option section of the add on, the wording for MtGox is listed for the BitStamp color option. Lastly, please consider adding Coinbase's prices.
UPDATE: Happy New Year to you as well! Thanks for the quick add and updates. I didn't realize I was blocked by Bitstamp but I don't use them anyways so I guess I'll just deselect them. I was using them previously because the prices were closest to Coinbase but since that's an option now; I'll just use Coinbase.
Thanks for finding and reporting the bug/typo in the BitStamp option, I just corrected it for the next version. I'm happy that you like it and find it useful :D
About other alt-coins or exchanges I don't want to add all possible options because it will make navigating through the settings a horrible experience, so I add only on demand what is useful to somebody. If you need any alt-coin that you use on a exchange just ask me and I'll add it. I will look into the API of coinbase to add it too.
Happy new year! Oh, I forgot the problem of "$???" in Bitstamp, it works for me now but I experienced it before when they banned my IP (because I had a refresh interval <10 secs.). Try opening the website from the same IP and if they blocked you then login to Bitstamp from another IP and open a customer support ticket, eventually they'll unblock you.
Spendid Add-On! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works exactly as indicated. Open-Source. An excellent tool for keeping one's eye on Bitcoin price change, while going about other pursuits in Firefox.
Author continues to actively improve product, and is responsive to suggestions for additional features. Worthy of bitcoin tip.
Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Easy way to keep up with the price of Bitcoin at a glance, thanks! Can you add LTC as an option to see at some point, that would be cool.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206.1-signed).
Wish conceded ;)
Litecoin it's included in latest version (1.1)
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Small and simple, seems to work well. One small problem though, on my computer (v25 on Mac) the bounding box cuts the last character in half. I also hope to see support for litecoins and/or other digital currencies in the future.
EDITED: Upped my review to 5/5 as my requests have been added, along with other new features :) Thanks.
I just published a new version with an option to fix your problem in the Mac, now you can change font size and spacing between tickers.
Give it a try and let me know if you have any problem.
