  • I've bypassed this addon for so long because I'm using Pocketbook and the addon's name screams "I'm for Kindle users only!" You should change its name to Push to e-reader. It was pure coincidence I found out Pocketbook users can use it too.
    EDIT. as for localized letters converting to symbols, well, I can't seem to replicate it to send you some sample url to investigate. Hopefully this means problem is gone.
    Sadly, there is another problem. I'm premium Wyborcza.pl subscriber, I see fully displayed articles, yet they are sometimes pushed partly - generated file only contains few initial paragraphs.
    Thank you for the review, and your suggestion. We'll definitely think about how we can better let Pocketbook users know about this feature. I'm sorry you'd avoided it because you assumed it wouldn't work with your device.

    As for the title problem. We're happy to take a look if you send us an example (URL of source article which isn't converted properly) to help@fivefilters.org
  • This add-on requires ‘read all content on all pages’ privilege, when it literally just appends the current page's URL to their own service's, and redirects you there:

    e.g. http://fivefilters.org/kindle-it/send.php?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F

    This definitely should not need the permissions it demands, unless it's doing something malicious.
    [2018-09-03: Update to the below, having looked into it some more: When we released the extension, there was no way to achieve what the extension does without requesting permissions that would cause Firefox to display the ominous warning you object to. It has since become possible to request access to the tab only when a user interacts with the add-on. See https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/activeTab for an explanation. We have updated the add-on accordingly. But I want to stress that the add-on was never doing anything "malicious", as you suggest above. When we originally released the add-on, before the introduction of the new permission, there was simply no way to implement what we wanted without incurring that permission warning.]

    Hi there, you're right that the add-on really only just appends the current tab's URL to our Push to Kindle URL when the user clicks our toolbar button. The new URL is:

    https://pushtokindle.fivefilters.org/send.php?url=[current tab url]

    I think the ‘read all content on all pages’ warning Firefox shows you is really just letting you know that the permissions for the extension allow us to do more than what we're currently doing. But of course we understand the concern. We certainly don't want to be giving the impression that we're reading people's content when we're not. I'm pretty certain the permissions we require for this simple add-on to function (ie. to get the tab URL of the current page you're viewing when you click our toolbar button) have always displayed this rather stark warning.

    But I'm curious if with recent WebExtension developments we can now achieve the same thing without requiring the permissions that generate this warning. We'll take a look soon. If we can do it, of course we'll reduce the permissions.
  • Great at what it does. Simple and easy to use. No registration required.
  • A great extension! I find it easier to read on the Kindle, and this does the job perfectly.

    It's made by a group that's critical of the media and who keeps their eyes on the engine, another bonus!
  • wow nice extension!!!
  • It works great.
  • Great, much much better than Amazon official plugin (available for chrome). It works well for articles published by various journals as well as wikipedia articles!
  • I frequently use this add-on to send various news articles or opinion pieces to my paperwhite. Even though sometimes its feature 'remember me' cookie does not work (it could be due to one of privacy add-ons that I have), but it works as expected. I had no problem with it so far. Plus, if I have encounter a paywall (which is rare), this add-on sometimes circumvents this problem as well.
  • This extension has made reading web content on kindle much easier. Greater idea, great implementation!
  • It's an excellent add on, text detection and formatting is good as well. But for sending PDF files without a name (I have many documents on my kindle with "PDF" and "converted PDF" as filename) bugs me and I hope this will be updated with an option to chose a doc name.
  • Very good addon - thanks a lot. Only thing lacking is some options to format text before sending. Any chance this could be possible in future update?
  • The first and only time I tried to use the service, it didn't work. Nothing appeared on my kindle and nothing appeared on my "manage devices" page. Complete silence.
  • i like it ,thanks.
  • I installed Push To kindle but it didn't place an icon in the top right, so I can't use it
  • Works great. Perfect alternative to the broken Amazon add-on.
  • Doesn't work on Firefox android. Why?
    Hi there, sorry about that. We recently converted the addon to the new WebExtensions format that Mozilla is moving to. When we submitted it, it was marked as compatible with all platforms (including Android). Having looked into it now, it appears this is not the case. According to Mozilla docs, "Add-ons that work with desktop Firefox do not automatically work in Firefox for Android" - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Firefox_for_Android

    I've just removed Android from the compatibility section. Hopefully this gets reflected on the site and it's no longer shown as compatible.

    We do offer Push to Kindle as an Android app that's compatible with Firefox and other browsers and apps (we are placed as an option in the list of 'share' destinations). I think it's a better option for mobile as it's designed to be used from small devices. It is, however, not free like this extension.
  • It's more stable and quick than others I used.
  • This works sooo much better than the Amazon app. Very fast and so far has worked on everything.
  • Working perfectly where the other one is not.
  • Added add-in to Firefox. No direction or assistance to explain what to do to make it work. Searched Kindle help and found no references. Removed app. An app that requires technical instruction to be sought out is of no value to me.
    Hi there, we do provide the following information on our Mozilla add-on listing:

    * Click our toolbar button (or use the keyboard shortcut if you've set one) on a page which you'd like to read on your Kindle.

    * Check the preview that appears and follow the instructions

    Further instructions appear when our Push to Kindle form loads.
  • I've got installed the addon some years ago, so I decided to install it again, but addon didn't work. There's nothing happens when I click addon's icon.

    6 min later.
    Sorry for first part of my message. I've got some results. If I'm logged in Firefox account (not only for sync, but manual login) your addon works fine, but if I just ran Firefox and began surfing it doesn't work.
    Hi there, I'm afraid we can't reproduce this. The extension should not be affected by whether you're logged into your Firefox account or not. But it will be affected if the page you're on when you click our toolbar icon is not a regular web page. (E.g clicking our toolbar icon on a blank page - about:blank - will have no effect.)
  • Very useful
  • Good add-on. It would be even better if you add options to send selected text and images to Kindle, as it is done in the original add-on from Amazon (which, unfortunately, stopped working with Firefox 45).
    Something we'll look into, thanks. In the mean time you can use our Paste Pad to do that - copy some text/images and paste into Paste Pad then click Push to Kindle

    Not as convenient as having it built into the extension, but still an option. :)
  • Gracias por la extensión
  • Fantastic. The Amazon send to kindle app has stopped working but this one does the trick. As another reviewer has mentioned, you need to add their 'send from' email address to your allowed list in your "Manage Devices" section on Amazon.
