- by Firefox user 10216609, 4 years agoRated 2 out of 5Its a great idea and I turn it on when buying stuff but man what a bloat wear.
Reloads constantly when surfing eBay and requires frequent sign in. I sell on ebay so its a PITA. When turned on I basically can barely use yahoo mail. Page loads are sometimes 30 seconds or more.
Basically if the developers would give some control over it it would be great to use ie persistent sign ins or white listing. Otherwise I mostly disable it and if I remember turn it on for a purchase run.
I like ebates but this app needs some work. Just spammy as heck.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoHello Skpiste,
I'm very sorry to hear about your negative experience with the Ebates Add-On. If you would like to prevent the Ebates add-on from prompting you on certain sites like Ebay, you can by doing the following:
1. Click on the Ebates icon
2. Click the settings in the bottom left of the popup
3. Check "Do not display Activation Hover on these sites"
4. Click on "these sites" and add "ebay.com" to the field then click save.
If you'd like to turn the add-on back on for those sites, simply uncheck the option by going back into settings.
Thank you again for your feedback.
