- by Firefox user 15134973, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5Great addon. Does what you'd expect. My only question is, when will it support Firefox mobile view? That would be the only thing I'd say it is missing.
- by Marius, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Consider allowing to increase the width & height after are created the square or rectangle, you can not create form first select the exact size with the mouse (the edges to become editable when you put the mouse over the edges to show an double arrow which to allow to increase or decrease the size and add check-mark who stop the edit and after to can move on the screen your created figure).
To can save as predefined figure to can load in other tab/window!
Scenario: A customer tells you that the distance between the title and the photo is not exactly the same as on his competitor's website and he wants the same distance. If you can save a figure created as a predefined (by giving it a name), you can load the same figure on the other tab/window and to show him if is exactly or not, and you do not have to recreate it again.
To can generate measurable figures in units, for example: create a figure of 24 pixels width and 4.5 pixels of height.

- 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.)
Developer responseposted 4 years agoI 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.

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.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoHi 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 :)
