- by Phillip, 10 months agoRated 4 out of 5If you want to copy something that you wouldn't normally want to, this is the extension for you.
WebExtensionAPI has pretty much sent everything else down the loo.
- by PERCE-NEIGE, a year agoRated 1 out of 5I used this one for "force addon compatibility". Missing greatly.
Developer responseposted a year agoPlease see https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/nightly-tester-tools/reviews/1095111/, where we already described why it's not needed anymore. Where exactly do you have problems?
If that fixes your problem please reconsider the rating of the extension. Thanks.
- by Firefox user 13910128, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5How can i use "Force Addon Compatibility"...Just in short this feature is not necessary anymore since Firefox 57 when only extensions based on the WebExtension API are allowed in Firefox. As such it has been removed.
If you have problems with a feature you should contact the support site or send an email instead of writing negative reviews on AMO. We would be happy if you could adjust your rating. Thanks.
- by grahamperrin, 2 years agoRated 4 out of 5I'll use this occasionally with Waterfox.
More generally – for any Firefox-like browser – identifying extensions primarily by name is troublesome. Because addons.mozilla.org (AMO) too often makes it unnecessarily difficult to find by name; because developers too often use multiple names for a single product; and so on – so I can't give five stars.
The extension could be improved by more positively identifying extensions. Include:
- either the AMO address of the extension, non-localised, for example https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/nightly-tester-tools/
- or (if not listed on AMO) ideally the support URL, less ideally the home URL.
If no URLs is associated with the extension, be explicit about the absence of a support URL.Thank you for the review. Also those are helpful information in how we can make NTT a better extension. Would you mind to file those as new issues in our issue tracker on github? We would kinda appreciate it, and make sure that it will be included in one of the future releases.

I understand your sensitivity to my recent review in which (among other things) I congratulated you on keeping Nightly afloat.
I cannot, in all honesty, change my "star rating" because, whosoever's fault it is, Nightly is a shadow of it's former self.
Sadly, I do not have the skills required to help. This makes me sad.You are welcome to raise issues of missing or broken behavior on Github. The issue tracker for the add-on can be found at https://github.com/mozilla/nightlytt/issues.
At least with that you can let us know of things you are not satisfied with. Please file individual issues for each of the things you have in mind if not existent yet.
- by jojo-g, 2 years agoRated 5 out of 5Why we skip support from Web Extension version of the add on for 55 version of Firefox?Can you please explain what you mean with `WE`? Also do you ask regarding the uploaded beta version of the rewritten extension? Maybe you can clarify the question a bit. Thanks.
- by Firefox user 12473153, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5The user who wrote the reviews as IMHO an idiot (almost!). The developer took his time and gave a considered reply Solving the reviewers problems. And why I am writing this is becasue he did not even have the manners to thank for the reponse. I hope most things get screwed up for him/her. We need better standards on the web. Feel free to repond to me offline. Dont know if poss from this site.
- by WildcatRay, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5"Use comma between entries when copying the list of extensions (#195)"
You just screwed this up big time. Without the commas, I could add the list of extensions into an Excel spreadsheet. I used the spreadsheet to compare my various profiles across my computers.
Now, because you made this change after all the YEARS that NTT has been around, I now have to work around this if I am going to maintain my spreadsheet.
I’m guessing you never stopped to consider how this change was going to affect those of us who have been using NTT all these years before acting on it. Thanks a lot.
Reply: Incorrect! All I needed to do prior to this change was Ctrl+V to paste the list of extensions into Excel.
I do not import which is what you are talking about. I pasted. I can't do that now because the entire list goes in one (1) cell rendering things worthless.
Again, you failed to consider the unintended consequences of this change before making it.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThe problem here is not that we are using comma now, but the way how you import the data into Excel. It means there is always a way to import as CSV which let you specify the separator between entries. So once you selected comma all is still working and no extra work has to be done.
- by Firefox user 12493403, 3 years agoRated 1 out of 5Leider funktioniert dieses bisher sehr gute AddOn ab Firefox V. 48.x nicht mehr!
Ursache ist die Modifizierung von Firefox betreffend Richtlinien in Sachen AddOns.
Abhilfe gibt es keine, außer sich nach aktuellen oder ähnlichen AddOns umzusehen, welche man nicht mittels
"Nightly Tester Tools" freischalten muß.
Man kann somit getrost unter Firefox 48.x "Nightly Tester Tools" deaktivieren, oder gleich deinstallieren.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoDanke für das Feedback. Ich hätte jedoch noch eine Frage, da die Funktion, die hier angesprochen wird, nicht Teil von NTT ist und auch nie sein wird.
Mit Firefox 48 sind signierte Add-ons vorgeschrieben. Daran kann auch NTT nichts ändern. In den Release-Versionen kann die Überprüfung so halt nicht deaktiviert werden. Firefox blockiert es einfach. In nightly Builds sollte es noch möglich sein, hierzu nehmen wir gern einen Feature-Request entgegen: https://github.com/mozilla/nightlytt/issues
Es ist jedoch unfair, eine Bewertung über eine Funktion abzugeben, die bis jetzt nicht unterstützt wird.
