We have added support to export the saved form data (it should be available from the add-on settings page since version 0.9.14). I have added a feature request for the date format change on the GitHub page at https://github.com/lutostag/webextension-formsave/issues/19.
Works on one of two sites, im using often. Facebook.com does work. Brieffreunde.de does not work. www.kialo.com does not work. If this is not working on sites with great amount of text, its pretty much useless.
Like most others, I use it as replacement for Lazarus and although different, it is useful. But I just discovered it doesn´t capture the Write window on Google Gmail. I once more fell victim to the common plague of focusing on the keyboard while typing, and not noticing, that the typed text had been accidentally marked by a swipe on the trackpad. I had been typing quite a lot and was knocked down to a state of depression by the incident.
Thanks for the feedback. I have just submitted a new version to review with the ability to go to the page currently selected in the actionPage. It should be live and available in a day or two. Thanks for the good suggestion!
I have also filed a feature request for blacklisting certain sites, you can follow along here: https://github.com/lutostag/webextension-formsave/issues/9
Thanks again for leaving feedback, I appreciate it!
Sorry this extension doesn't seem to be working for you. This extension saves textareas, not all forms. If it does not work for you on a specific site please include it in your review or file a bug at https://github.com/lutostag/webextension-formsave/issues and I will try to fix it.
Thanks for the time to make a review, wish you had a better experience.
Das Programm ist absolut überflüssig. Keinereli Ersatz für Lazarus. Ich nutze weiter FF in der letzten Version, wo Lazaurs noch ging, und werde nicht weiter updaten bis es einen akzeptablen Ersatz gibt.
The title of this review is the question I have in mind. I find the add on having saved a gazillion of forms but not the last one I am looking to find. It's not even saving this text I am writing. Shouldn't this little text box be the first that the author verifies it is working? I mean, if it doesn't work with the text box in the Firefox add on review form, how can you give it a higher rating?
The fact is that I use it only because an older add on I have isn't getting updated and does not support multithreading. Not because it is any good. Unfortunately.
So I only hope that one day FormSave will be an add on that you can trust that it will save what you are typing. For now, it's usability is questionable. I only keep it on my browser only for the lack of alternatives and no other reason.
+1 star since my last review, since the UI evolution was exactly what I requested: thanks for listening.
For further improvements: I would like to be able to redimension the "pop-up" and is columns, but maybe that's a Firefox limitation. In particular, the "date" column is too wide on my display, and the "URL" one not wide enough.
Also, in replacement to the URL column, or as an addition, I think the column with the Page Title would be useful. TextArea Cache Lite does offer that.
Finally, the column sorting should be remembered (and should be "from most recent to oldest" by default, in my opinion).
I agreed 100% with your previous suggestions. They were spot on. I know there needs to be some further improvement, but yes these changes are a bit more difficult to make. I will think about the overall experience and see if I can improve it further.
Thanks for the suggestions, you have already made this add-on better with your previous eagle-eyed ui requests!
As a security precaution all firefox addons are disabled on addons.mozilla.org.
