  • WebコンテンツをE-mail経由でKindleデバイスに転送する拡張です.

    当初は日本語対応に問題があって頻繁に文字化けが発生していましたが、こまめにバグレポートを送ってるとその都度対応してくれたおかげで,今ではほとんど発生しなくなりました.UI こそ日本語化されていませんが操作は簡単ですし,英語が読めない日本人Kindleユーザーにもお勧めの拡張です.
  • Great addon. Now I spend hours reading in my kindle instead of my laptop.

    Only one problem: keyboard shortcut is the same as "web console" that is embedded in firefox.
    Hi there, thanks a lot for the review. Just a quick update to say the latest version (1.5) has the keyboard shortcut disabled by default. The keyboard shortcut can now be set from the addon's options page (visible when you view your installed addons in Firefox). There are 4 shortcuts to choose from now (one of which does not conflict with any built-in shortcuts).
  • A must have for kindle owner. But could you please make an option to hide the icon on the menu bar? For me the keyboard shortcut is good enough. Thanks in advance!

    update: I also found that the email address could not be saved so I need to type/choose it every time. I could not find a setting for this.
    Thanks for the feedback. Not being able to hide the icon is an issue we're working on. It should be fixed in the next release.

    As for the email address not being saved, please check the following:

    * Make sure Javascript is enabled - if you use something like NoScript, you should add an exception for fivefilters.org.

    * Ensure local storage (an HTML5 feature) is enabled - it should be by default. We use it to save the email address. See http://stackoverflow.com/a/7358969/407938 to check whether it's enabled or not.

    Let us know if you still have trouble.
  • I've tried other similar services, such as Send to Kindle bookmarklet by Klip.me and SENDtoREADER bookmarklet and found that KIndle It is the best. It can handle pages that the other two can't and the web pages are nicely formatted, much better than the other two.

  • There are 3 problems with this beta firefox addon.
    1: If you click on the kindleit button and switch tabs, the kindleit overlay disappears (different than in chrome). So you miss the "Sent!" confirmation if you switch tabs waiting for it to send the article.
    2: The email address field is narrower than in chrome and I can't see the whole address.
    3: No way to put the button on the main toolbar.
    Ponzonik, many thanks for the feedback. All very good points. We are going to start work on an updated extension very soon to bring this in line with the Chrome extension.

    To address your points specifically:

    1. In the new version we will be loading the panel URL in your current tab, the same way it works with the Chrome extension.

    2. The email address being narrower is something we'll have to look into.

    3. Toolbar button is something else we're going to try and do as many are reporting the icon in the add-on bar disappears occasionally.
  • It works and has a snazzy icon, but was needlessly hard to setup because I could not figure out what they meant about "approved addresses". It took me forever to figure out that I was supposed to go to www.amazon.com/myk and sign into my kindle account THERE and set it up to allow me to get kindle downloads from kindle@fivefilters.org and/or the other email addresses I use (which didn't happen to be the one I use to sign into my Amazon account.) But now that I have it working I'll be sending larger stuff to read offline instead of printing it out. Yay for saving trees!
  • Nice work :-)
  • Great addon, I use it to download pages I would like to read on my Kindle as .epub documents. I didn't use the "send to Kindle" options but it works great for my simple use.
