- by Firefox user 13404310, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5The 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.
- by Firefox user 12926039, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Doesn't work on Firefox android. Why?
Developer responseposted 3 years agoHi 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.
- by Firefox user 12325995, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5Added 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.
- by Firefox user 12309420, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5I'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.)
- by Firefox user 5904458, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Good 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. :)
- by TenLeftFingers, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Fantastic. 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.
- by Windswords, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I tried Amazon's Send to Kindle and it didn't work. So I tried this one. At first it didn't seem to work. Then I got an email from Amazon that someone was trying to send a document to my kindle but it wasn't on the approved email list and instructions on how to register the email address. After following the instructions to register the email the test page I tried to send to my Kindle (basic E-Reader) showed up on my device and I had no trouble accessing it. Very cool! Now, if add-on's instructions could just tell us we have to register the products email for the Kindle device and how to do it it would be perfect.
- by LeeU, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5This is an excellent product! I use it all the time. However, I changed the email address for another Kindle and now I can't get rid of the previous one. I have tried the "Reset" link but, next time, it doesn't remember the new one (and I clicked on "remember Me"). Again, it's a great product. I just hate to have to re-enter my email address each time. (And I have uninstalled and reinstalled it.)
- by kkruglov, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5instead of readability or official kindle addon this extension does much better job with article (saves ALL the photos, better handling of paragraphs etc).
3 years after: still working just fine. some articles may not get parsed well, but it's site fault, you can always paste plain text from the site itself.
- by R. Moreno, 5 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great. I used to use the Send to Kindle official app, but as well as it usually hanged and I didn't know if it had sent or not the article, this one is fast, does not fail and though lacks the possibility of sending without previewing I loose much less time overall.
- by klint, 5 years agoRated 4 out of 5Other e-readers like Pocketbook work on the exact same mail principle. So would you mind implementing a Push-to-Pocketbook option? Only the email host name differs from the Kindle one (email@example.com for Pocketbook). Thanks
Thank you for you reply and for the good news. But maybe you should mention this on the addon page itself as well, or even rename the addon ;) . Thanks again
Developer responseposted 5 years agoHi Klint, thanks for the review. Just wanted to say that this is already supported. Where you see @free.kindle.com in the form, you can click it and you'll get a list of alternative options, including @pbsync.com.
