Misbehaving in Firefox 44. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Since the update Persona Switcher has been a little bit wonky. I had it set so that when I hover over a persona in the list it would briefly change the browser so that I can see what it looks like. I cannot use that part of it anymore because Persona Switcher's button menu twitches and blinks and most of the time the changes in appearance doesn't work, the menu keeps closing too. Also, Firefox's Default appears in the list twice now.
If I turn off the previews of the different personas, Persona Switcher's menu is usable but Default still appears twice.
I've seen similar issues and I'm working on getting them fixed. I'll have a new beta ready soon -- would you like to be a tester? Thanks!
Ignore certain personas when using the auto-switcher. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
To drb80 the add-on developer, I updated my previous reply below to give you that link.
As far as my suggestion goes, I still think it would be a nice feature if we can tell the addon which personas to ignore. I have some installed that I may use once in a while for certain reasons but not something I would want the randomizer to use. I do not want to remove the persona, I just want to keep it disabled and I will manually turn it on when I need it.
Auto-switching doesn't seem to work. Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I set the auto-switcher in options to 1 minute to test it. It didn't work, it never switched personas.
I went back to the options thinking that maybe I forgot to checkmark the box, it was checked. I closed the options and it switched. I continue to wait for it to switch every minute, and it never switched again. 8 minutes have passed without it switching so I wrote this here.
If you can get it to switch reliably I will up my rating.
EDIT: By default the auto-switcher switched to the least used (very bottom of the list). Any time that I would manually switch the persona, a minute later (per my test setting) it would try to load that least used one at the bottom of the list again.
I went back into options and told it to pick at random and now the switcher is working every 1 minute. I think the problem may be the persona itself. It is the Developer one, it would switch to the Developer one and it would stop switching after that.
When I load that Developer persona manually it works fine so there is no need to disable it for your addon. It would be nice if your addon gave us the option to ignore certain personas, either problematic ones, or ones we don't like as much but still want to use manually on occasion.
I upped my rating from 2 to 4 stars.
EDIT: Here is the link to the Developer addon/persona
It's one of those no-restart ones, however in your Addons window/extensions tab where you would manually enable/disable it, for a brief moment after telling it to enable, it says it requires a restart and then a second or two later it clears that message. Perhaps because of that, this is why the auto-switcher hangs. /shrug
I'm not sure why a specific persona would cause troubles. If you can, email me the persona or tell me how to get it, and I can take a look. I am working on a new release at the moment. I'm not sure how easy it would be to ignore certain personas, but let me think about that. Thanks!
