  • It's an interesting feature showing how much time I waste on youtube and reddit. I'd love if it had more visual representation of the data, such as graphs, pie charts and so on, and not purely lists with hours spend.
  • Helps me to keep track of the time spent online.
  • perfect !!!
  • Very good extension. Since I use the same device for work and home, it would be very helpful to be able to filter the data by hour of the day; even more, as others pointed out, it would be great to be able to export the data for independent analysis.
  • Unfortunally the Add-On doesn't work anymore. I can't access the summary page and the timer doesn't count anymore. I loved that function
  • This add-on is great for getting a rough sense of your browsing habits. I think it would be awesome I could keep track of time within local documents too (file://), since I often end up using Firefox as a PDF reader too.
  • App works as intended, but I would really like to be able to export the information into a spreadsheet file for long-term tracking.
  • Seems to be quite useful and straight forward. Only missing a list for automated timer mode switching. E.g. set timer to movie mode on Netflix or Youtube.
  • This in an awesome productivity add-on. The only problem I have is that continues to count time if I my laptop goes to sleep with a webpage open which completely blows the statistics.
  • I really like this extension and it does just what it says. I wish there was a way to export statistics to CSV for further processing though.
  • Thank you very much for this nice plugin. Perfect for my needs, but I would like to be able to track my private sessions. Do you plan to add this feature as an option in a future update ? Kind regards and thanks again for your great work.
  • It's a great simple extension that worked pretty well. If the developer is reading this, please consider adding an option to choose how many seconds are considered "idle". An ability to adjust the 15 second rule.
  • Unsure what information is needed to (or even where I should) bug report,, but there doesn't seem to be a contact website/email available under "More Information" on this add-on's page. :(

    On Firefox 57.0.1 (64-bit) for Windows 7, running Mind the Time 2.2.0, Mind the Time doesn't show anything on the summary page. The top navigation bar (MIND THE TIME, ..., REFRESH) does show up, and so does a color gradient along the entire page (below the navigation bar). Mousing along the navigation bar does "dark-shade" the box behind the text, and clicking on any of the words doesn't do anything--the exception is "ABOUT" which opens this page.

    Mind the Time shows up fine as an icon on the Toolbar; even the h:mm time tracker increases as it should. When clicked, the popup menu showing the various timer settings shows up fine; the h:mm/h:mm time tracker (showing time spent on the current domain) also works fine.

    The bug persists, even after restarting firefox, and even after turning off all other addons and running the default theme.

    edit: Refreshing firefox (completely new install) fixes the problem, somehow!
  • Great add-on.
    Just one thing that I miss (and I couldn't find any e-mail to contact the author) is an option to configure how the dates are displayed when seeing the statistics/summary.
    Seeing it as "month/day" is really strange in some places; having an option to choose "day/month" would make it even greater.
  • Congrats that you've made Mind the Time compatible with Firefox 57 before Adblock Plus did!
  • Very good tool. But with the new version of firefox (56.0), the timer log keep going even if there is no activity on the browser ! And the timer run with private navigation.
    Update: starting with version 2.2.0 time and websites in private browsing windows are not logged.

    Thank you, and yes, these are two known issues. I hope they can be resolved. A couple quotes from the add-on's page below.

    From Developer Notes: I've noticed that occasionally the idle timeout does not work correctly and too much time is logged for a given site. This appears to be caused by a problem in the WebExtensions layer and not in this add-on's code. See this bug report: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1383244 A workaround is to minimize or otherwise "unfocus" Firefox before leaving the computer idle.

    From Mind the Time listing: Note: Currently time and websites are logged for private browsing windows. This is due to a known limitation in Firefox's browser extensions API. See: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/manifest.json/incognito

    Update: I've added a more prominent "Known Issues" section to the add-on's page and added these two items to it.
  • I already use LeechBlock to delay addictive pages, but found its statistics lacking. This is better. It does not block or delay, but allows to check after-the-fact where that time went. I like the immediate feedback, keeping the time spent on the current page visible at a glance.
  • This a nice, handy addon. It keeps track of all websites I visit, without slowing my browser down. The statistics lack any sort of graph, but personally I'm happy with the lists displayed.

    Edit: A previous version of the add-on kept track of time spent while in incognito mode, which has been resolved as of version 0.2.2. The rating has thus been changed to a deserved 5/5. Thanks to the developer for implementing a manual workaround until the browser's API catches up.
    Update: starting with version 2.2.0 time and websites in private browsing windows are not logged.

    Thanks for reporting this. I took a look and this is a side effect of the migration to the new WebExtensions APIs. Currently Firefox does not fully support all the options for handling private windows. When it does I can update the extension so that it will once again not log sites and time in private windows. I've added a note about this to the add-on's description.

  • As I cannot leave one more message under your answer, I've decided to leave on more review instead.

    «Pale Moon» won't support the new kind of addons, so, please, could you port it just for us, for the community?
    Sorry, Mind the Time was always an "Add-on SDK" add-on, and it would take way too much work to port it to the older lower level "XUL overlay" format.
  • Love this app but I wish that it was translated into my language
