Almost perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars
It works great with every single tracker I´ve tried it on, both private and public, and with both torrents and magnet links, EXCEPT for KAT, since whenever I press the download "torrent" button on that site it insists on downloading it with my PC torrent client, no matter what. If I press the "magnet" button on the same page, though, it works beautifully, as it does the "torrent" button in any other tracker, such as TPB.
I´ve tried changing the "default" torrent app on Firefox/Tools/Options, but I cannot make WebUI+ work with KAT at all.
Any idea why, Mr. Developer?
Thanks a lot for your nice work.
Very useful for a long time until no new torrent could be added :/ Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like the say 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' so I never touched anything since I got it to work but recently I could access the 'Vuze WebUI' but not add new torrents ('401 - forbidden' was popping up). After searching through Mozilla's addons, I found out there currently are 3 different versions of this plug-in so I disabled this one, installed the '++' version and it's back to normal :)
I hope this helps anyone in the same situation. Have a nice day.
It appears the ++ addon is just an older version of this addon.
Have you tried installing the v0.2.2.2 version of this addon to see if it is the same?
Please let me know if that works for you and I'll check what might have broken it to fix in a newer update.
Just perfect ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfect with Deluge on OSX.
Great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I discovered this addon today.I am using it with Transmission and I have detected a bug, a little one.When I add a new torrent with magnet appears a windows so fast and then another windows showing that the torrent is duplicated (I guess that the first windows is the added succesfully)I have tried to figure out how to solve it by the source code, but I am sorry I have never written any addon.Anyway, thank for this great addon ;)
I am editing this because I don't know how to reply to you.
Anyway, I wasn't double clicking, I tried some times. But, it looks like everything is fine, today the "torrent duplicate" message didn't appear, so may be it was because of firefox or even my computer.
Are you double clicking the links instead of single clicking them by any chance?
Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars
My favorite plugin. I use it daily.
Simply Awesome Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Using ruTorrent 3.5 (with rTorrent 0.9.3/0.13.3) and this works swimmingly! Would be cool if there was a context menu option to download a torrent/magnet link using a local client, might develop it myself if I can find the time.Also, do you have a public repository of this plugin on Github, Google code or anything? Would be easier for the community to contribute if so.Made this account simply to write this review, also the first time I've donated to an add-on developer. So glad to not have to copy the link address and paste it anymore. Made my day!
EDIT: Yes, I noticed that but I'd prefer a context menu option as well as it would be quicker to toggle on or off. Or even a keyboard shortcut.
Yeah, public repos are great. Easier to maintain the project if the code is easily accessible to other people so others may join in development.
No problem, do something cool with it.
Thanks a lot for your review.
One of the good things with this addon is that it has the ability to work with both a remote and local torrent client simultaneously.
Simply click the addon icon to enable it and the torrent links will be captured by the addon and sent to your remote client.
If you then click the icon again to disable it the torrent links will no longer be captured and will open up with your local client normally.
Thanks a lot for your donation they're quite a rare thing.
I don't have a google code repository but that might be a good idea to create one for it...
EDIT: I've set up a google code repository now:
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
For me it works sometimes, and not others. With deluge 1.3.6 (python 2.7, libtorrent 16.8), on windows 7 64bit, firefox 22. I don't know if it's the deluge daemon being picky, or if it's the plugins implementation; but it doesn't work consistently enough for me to keep.
Wish you could specify directory Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I'm trying to switch from chrome to Firefox and the one thing missing from this addon that I've grown very used to is being able to choose from a list of labels and directories to keep all the torrents sorted. Awesome addon for what it does, but that part is needed for me. Back to chrome I guess :\
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Very easy to use and good program.Only issue I had it is my server running both rTorrent and Deluge (for magnets), there is no alternative to put up multiple clients, or use ONLY magnets or torrents instead of both.Unfortunately, it was a dealbreaker. But still a very good addon, simple and quick addon!(Be aware that it's missing a few other options, nothing serious, but enough to drag the addon itself down a bit).
Edit response: Seedboxes.
Thats weird, why would you use one client for torrents and another client for magnets?
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Work's perfectly, except for torrent files on ftp servers (e.g. ftp://iso2.de.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/iso/6.1/NetBSD-6.1-amd64.iso.torrent)
Except for magnet links the mechanism for intercepting the torrent links is using an HTTP listener so won't work for FTP sites. I might look into that for a future release.
Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works very well! On my mac it does seem to make an error noise even though it is successful. I notice another reviewer had a problem with popups not appearing. I have the same problem! I'm not sure how the other person was able to fix it though but it would be good to find out somehow! -Edit-They have now suddenly started appearing! Though they seem to look like growl notifications? Either way it's great!
The last guy who had this problem informed me his issue was caused by another extension that was incompatible with firefox and preventing the popups appearing. After disabling that extension (Growl/GNTP 1.2.5 for him) the popup messages started working correctly.
Impeccable Rated 5 out of 5 stars
EDIT after developer's input: worth another star. The app does have visual feedback of the success of adding the torrent, it was my FF installation.
Highly recommended, impeccable extension and developer !
The only missing piece I think is a better feedback. Right now, we do have sound feedback for the torrent adding, but it's not really useful when working with computers with no sound or intentionally muted. Plus the sound is a beep, that can seem like an "error sound" instead of a "success sound". An unintrusive popup or toast informing the user that everything went smoothly is a must, otherwise we're left wondering if it worked at all. I've seen similar plugins that show a small text bubble close to the link you just clicked that triggered the torrent adding.Another thing, the source code on http://www.alexisbrunet.com/ seems outdated, not corresponding to the latest version available on https://addons.mozilla.org
The addon already has a popup message that appears in the bottom right hand corner of the screen whenever you click a torrent link that will show you success or failure messages. If the popup message is not working for you please let me know.
The original source code from alexis brunet has not been updated for several years. This addon is one I've been updating and maintaining since he stopped working on his.
Probleme WebUI Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Be Careful, WebUI 0.387 does not work with Windows Home Server (Utorrent 3.3) and Windows 7 with Firefox 20.0.1 .
In fact, some time I have a firefox's pop-up asking my ID, ..... my ID work few minutes ..... and i see another pop-up ........
There are few days all worked perfectly ... I used Webui since 2 years ..... my parameters are good .... so ....
I've just tested with the latest uTorrent webui and firefox and I have no problems at all....
Using uTorrent 3.3 build 29625, WebUI 0.387 and Firefox 20.0.1 on Windows 7 x64.
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
nice, but would be nicer if you could configure it to give you a popup that let you customize download folders, tags, etc, before adding it to rutorrent.
That would be nice, but it would also require all of the WebUI APIs for each of the supported torrent clients being capable of accepting those kinds of commands. Which unfortunately, they don't.
stopped working Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It was working fine till I tried a static ip, as I couldn't get it to work properly I reverted to router default settings. Now webui opens but when I click on magnet I get 401 error Server replied unauthorized and authentication window for user and pass opens every time, any idea what might be causing this ? RegardsThis user has a previous review of this add-on.
Sounds like just a configuration problem. Try clearing your settings and reconfiguring the addon. If you need help send me an email with the details.
Doesn't work with uTorrent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This does not work with µTorrent Server alpha (3.0 build 27079). Am I doing something wrong or is this a known issue? Nothing happens when i click on a magnet link. I just hear the notification sound.
EDIT: Looks like there was a bad torrent stuck in my watch folder. It was preventing other torrents from being loaded. Everything seems to be working now. Rating adjusted ;-)
Hi this should work fine with that version of uTorrent. Check that you have the path correct and that when you middle click the addon icon the webui opens correctly. If the webui doesn't load you might have some setting wrong.Send me an email if you need to troubleshoot the problem.
The Perfect Addition To Any Seedbox Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works perfectly with rutorrent.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2.5).
You are one star short of perfection. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Want to know why? Because there is no support for qBittorrent.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2.5).
qBittorrent support is now added in version 0.2.3.0.
