- by Firefox user 15021426, a year agoRated 1 out of 5I didn't use it. Want to know why? Did anyone read the permissions granted to install it? Why do you need to know everything I've ever typed into google.com? There should be a warning for this sort of thing.
- by Firefox user 14658293, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5i like fanatical. i liked it back when it was named bundle stars. it's a nice website, good deals.
that being said, this extension felt unnecessary and the way it was developed shows its awkwardness. banners on the tops of youtube pages? detected by malwarebytes as a potentially unwanted program?
also, REQUIRING the extension just to sync my steam wishlist? really?? i'm already able to connect my steam account to my fanatical account. why are you making us go through the trouble of installing an entire browser extension?
fanatical, i love you guys, for your bundles and your star deals, but this all feels very forced. hopefully you can improve it eventually. for now, i'll just install/uninstall it intermittently when i want to update my wishlist.
- by Reckoning, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5It's one thing to show me prices of games when I'm actively looking at store pages. I do not on the other hand appreciate what amounts to a giant banner ad across the top of my screen just because a youtube video I watch has a game in it. Couldn't turn it off for youtube so I've uninstalled the extension.
- by Talk.Nerdy.To.Me, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Added it to sync my wishlisted games...forgot about it til I started browsing the Steam winter sale and saw an annoying banner across the top of each page, which incidentally slowed down my browsing. Removed the add-on, now no irritating banner and browsing is back to normal. Avoid it, it's a pretty useless add-on from an otherwise awesome store.
- by Firefox user 14378035, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5It's basically unnecessary spam; very unhelpful, and it actually tries to crash my browser when I go to other game stores like GamersGate.
Ever heard of the Aesop Fable, North Wind and the Sun? The more you try to brute force people to go to your website, the more repulsive it gets. Now that I've had plenty of Fanatical on my screen, I would rather buy from someplace else. Great marketing.
- by Whudunit, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 52019-07-22 UPDATE: The increasing amount of permissions granted over time, has become a bit much. I've removed this add-on.
ORIGINAL: I have no idea why Avast keeps rating this as a problem add on. Unless you're a moron, you have to have a Fanatical account to use most of the features. I have had ZERO problems with this add on.
- by Firefox user 14219224, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Finally we got sync of steam wishlist \0/
I am happy they managed to achieve it even without any official help from steam (no option to share it through steam API).
It is 4 out of 5 only because I am missing biggest discount view on the main panel. Apart from it I find it brilliant. Fully customisable and works like a charm.
- by Gary, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5EDIT: 13 Aug 2018. just an edit to thank the dev for his patient response. Bumped to 2 stars for professional comment and for having corrected inaccurate version info on add-on.
This is currently (11 Aug 2018) what the reported FF version requirements are for v1.1.3:
"Works with Firefox for Android 48.0 and later, Firefox 42.0 and later"
Yet, an (actually helpful) review response from the devs (from 6 days ago) explains that it only works with FF57 and above.
WTF hasn't this been corrected by the dev?
Normally, if an extension is only valid for a higher FF build, someone running e.g. FF ESR will just be prevented from installing it. Simple.
I actually always check version history of an extension to make sure all is well. Waste of time here.
Dev - please could you amend and update to avoid this happening for ESR users.
