- by Николай Егоров , 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Simple and useful extension, but it is not enough drawing functions area by clicking on the page element. Stretch accurately is difficult, and requires more time than a click.
- by mheder, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Doesn't work. Installed, granted permissions, clicking the icon in the toolbar does nothing.
EDIT: read other reviews, realised I was doing the same thing, tried it in another tab, works as expected.

- by Firefox user 12177375, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I installed it, click on the button on bar but nothing happened...
edit: ehm.. I'm so embarrassed, sorry! Now it work!Hi there,

Please try this addon on other websites. And feel free to raise issues at http://github.com/tsl143/jsDemos/
- by Firefox user 5665191, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I was using another Measure It addon. I guess the most people did that. Well we all know the world that we are going to be forced in with the new webextensions.
Old addon that I had:
- NOT compatible with webextension
- Buggy (pages load slow in youtube)
- Required restart of Firefox after installing addon
This Measure It addon:
- Compatible with webextensions
- NOT buggy
- No restart required of Firefox after installing addon.
All in all, just grab this addon if you want to measure. And YES you can hit the ESC key and the measurement window goes away! That is a MUST.
Thank you developer for making it. Please keep it up to date forever.
1. It does not work on addons.mozilla.org
2. Is it possible that we give it a color ourself? It is yellow right now. Would be nice if we had the option to have a:
background color and opacity
ruler color and opacity
- by Firefox user 13358039, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5I downloaded this new version, compatible with FF57, but the icon that appears in the toolbar is GI-NORMOUS. I loved the old version and suspect I'll love this one. But please fix it, or give me some idea of what I may be doing wrong (if that's the case). (I'm using FF56 with Mac OS 10.11.6.)I am not sure if I understood the request. All this addon do is, when you click toolbar button this create an overlay on screen and lets you to drag and select and area which gets the size of selected area in pixels.
- by Firefox user 13352008, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Why does a ruler need to "Access your data for all websites"?
I didn't install it so I just gave it a 2 to be fair but wanted to add this as a warning to other users.
UPDATE: Thanks for the reply and thanks for modifying the plugin to address the issue. I've changed my rating but I'll leave the initial review above so others can have context for your reply and also see how quickly your addressed the issue.Hi there,
This addon uses content-script API from webextensions API suite, which requires the aforesaid permissions. And this doesnt send or store any of your data, here is the code for this addon
I actually second your thought and even I find that permission intimidating, I have mailed Firefox team for same, hopefully we get a better solution.
Thanks again for input :)
updated addon with different approach and without requiring website-data permissions :)
