causes crash/hang on FF close and high CPU Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great concept and have previously had high success. Though recently my FF has been performing like crap and today finally set out to isolate it. High CPU usage even when idle one tab open to duckduckgo. Running Ubuntu 16.04 FF latest.

First part (which I fixed)
---------------------------------------------
First problem:
-> high CPU consumed by Firefox idle. Isolated down to this plugin. (plugin enabled = 20% CPU, plugin disabled = 0-1% CPU idle)

Seems I was running an older version of the backend service, which was the root cause of this issue. (sorry didn't note which chrome-gnome-shell version was running previously).

Second issue. (no fix)
---------------------------------------------
Any attempt to close firefox (File Quit, CTRL+Q, restart FF due to addon/extension change, etc.) results in a hang and crash. Firefox spins CPU for about 1 minute then crashes.

confusion over sudden backend requirements Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The backend requirements (copr dnf repo and ineptly named chrome-gnome-shell) could be made more clear on extensions.gnome.org. Works fine once you waste 20 minutes trying to figure out all of the manual dependencies. Grumble grumble.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.2). 

You may not waste your time, but go ahead [1] and improve opensource [2] website.

not sure how to reply, but that link you sent is for google chrome, not for firefox :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8.2). 

This link for ALL browsers: Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Vivaldi.
Just read instructions: https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GnomeShellIntegrationForChrome/Installation

It works, and if it does not work for you, read the instructions! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

As said by mostly everybody, this addon requires a backend service, it does not work out of the box by just adding it to Firefox, and this is by design, so, for everyone which did not it yet, repeat with me:

Read the addon instructions!

Solution: Read the addon's description.

> You MUST install native connector for this extension to work

The package is called 'chrome-gnome-shell' but is needed for Firefox too. It seems to be a dependency for the addon to communicate with the gnome-shell.

Buggy Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It can work, but when enable this addon, firefox will take much more CPU Usage abnormally. And then cause the browser crashed while you quit it.
I'm using this addon in openSUSE Tumbleweed, chrome-gnome-shell is v8 too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (8). 

Crash fixed in git master branch

Hello.
Crash fixed in git master branch and will be available in connector version 8.1.
You can ask package maintainer to apply patch to OpenSUSE package.

As for high CPU usage - can you provide more details at https://github.com/nE0sIghT/chrome-gnome-shell-mirror/issues ?

Works just like expected Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks, this offers a very smooth way to install gnome shell extensions via firefox.

Hi, Edgar.
Did you installed native host messaging connector? You need to manually install manifest file. Take a look here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=754316
