Disappointing Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This would be such a cool app if it wasn't so irritating.

I do not like that when there is an earthquake event that triggers an alert, the Firefox window opens up, even if I am not using Firefox. For example, if I am typing in a word editor, it interrupts my work, forcing me to re-minimize Firefox to get back to my work.

I do not like that when there is an event that triggers an alert, the Firefox window opens up into full screen mode. I prefer to have my Firefox window sized and located in a certain place and every time there's an event, I have to resize the window.

I do not like that when the window shakes to alert me to an earthquake event, it does not show an icon or a message on any status bar that I can find (even though it says that's what it should so in the settings).

Great - yet fact is Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Much better than a year ago when it was useless for so long.
Great - Now page appears at USGS new page.

However backboard is missing for right click menu - invisible against screensaver.
Therefore over words on the page - unable to read - mix of words.
However getting the list of earthquakes do have a backboard for pleasant reading.- Thanks for reading this

Thanks ! WORKING ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's a very useful extension.Problem:Geomap-not save custom zone ! Suggestion: add EMSC (European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre) list, EMSC displays many more earthquakes in the world and faster compared to USGS

It seems ok now Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I just checked the list of recent quakes and it's up to date so...I guess it works now. So we're back in business :D Thanks.

Along with updating the USGS page since it is being phased out, can you add an option to change the depth from kilometers to miles?

Cool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Coolest add-on for those with a soft spot for earthquakes. Several members of my family live in quake-prone areas and I want to be the first to know if their home is hit by a big one. The add-on does exactly as descibed.

Not being able to save a geomap item Rated 2 out of 5 stars

1st, I can create a new geomap item but it is not being able to remember a selected polygon.
2nd, after a shake of browser it should restore the original state of the browser, at this moment it try to keep the size of the window same but a maximize window become un maximize which is inconvenient.

I'm in for a $20 donation, anyone else ... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...appreciate this developer being so responsive and actually doing all the work to bring it up to speed with nee Firefox versions?
Please consider sending a donation as i am, any amount will do if enough people show their appreciation for his work and responsiveness, BECAUSE THIS CAN SAVE LIVES.

About a month ago, I had left a review appealing to this developer to please update this, as Firefox was leaving it in it's dust being limited to 3.5.x, however, after a little patience on my part, and subscribing to this thread... I got notification that it HAS been updated, and it will now work with current versions of Firefox. Well done and thank you!

I am in for a $20.00 donation for this developer's excellent foresight of its use, as well as being responsive to those reviewing his Application, and it is my way of showing gratitude for having taken the time to respond, by both updating the program, and replying to the review, as both were greatly appreciated.

Won;t you also contribute to help keep this current and maybe expand on its capabilities? I am sure it will be worth your while and donation in the long run when the next earth shattering record breaking earthquake becomes more predictable if you are watching the little events that lead up to those big ones, and if the Honshu Japan Quake had NOT been on the ocean's floor, it would have been much more devastating than it was for the Japanese people living in the area, and any further south could have resulted in USA Tsunami warnings and from this notification, MY friends, on the west coast, were afforded much earlier preparation time should an alert for tsunami have been posted, because they were WATCHING for them, having been alerted to the earthquakes by me three days before the 9.0 had finally topped all known records. BTW Honshu Japan is STILL experiencing between 4.6M and 5.4M multiple times a day, up to about two weeks ago when they finally seem to have tapered off to being more infrequent!

Thank you for reading my reviews!
TSG!

I LOVE this add-on, but it isn't working with my older Firefox anymore. I HATE the new Firefox and refuse to load it. The last time I did, I had to reload windows. Why isn't this working with 3.5?

I Miss eQuake Alert Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like eQuake Alert and with quakes intensifying and seemingly happening more frequently I sure wish this add-on could be updated. It seems that every time Firefox upgrades to a new version eQuake does not work.
