Most likely its getting interrupted by uBlock Origin or Privacy Badger. Doesn't appear to be much development going on with it. I hope future improvements focus on compatibility with the major add-ons. As of now it's not worth the extra resources.
- by PatheticCockroach, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5The idea behind this is to make the heavy catpcha misuse by lazy webmasters a bit less unbearable, at a potentially hefty cost to privacy. Which is still appreciable in the rare cases when you use proxies without looking for privacy at the same time.
However, the add-on simply doesn't work. Clicking on "get more passes" just brings me to the add-on's website, which explains various interesting things about the extension but doesn't perform the task I was sent there for (giving me a way to obtain passes).
Edit: okay, it works, but there's a big trick: the "get more passes" feature won't particularly trigger a captcha. So, if the IP you want to unblock is blocked even from receiving catpchas (thanks Google!!) but your normal IP doesn't even trigger a catpcha, then you need to find yet another IP that's in the middle (does trigger catpchas, but isn't blocked from solving them). Then it will work (solving the captcha will give you a bunch of passes, which you can use on your other IP).
It really needs a proper way to manually trigger a catpcha...

"the add-on downloaded from addons.mozilla.org could not be installed because appears to be corrupt"
What could be causing this?
- by Firefox user 13667315, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5It earns a star above the minimum because it is functional, for it intended purpose. It's so aggressive, however, that it destroys user experience and makes utilizing Cloudflare sites near unbearable.
It does get past Cloudflare captchas, which are impassable on some sites due to an infinite loop. However, on any page featuring dynamic elements, multiple frames, or anything else beyond your basic HTML setup it flips out. It constantly reloads the pages for each element (resulting in a jarring, headache-inducing white flash between reloads), using a ticket every time too. It's rare to see this happen less than 3 times on any page to even start, really.
Discus is a prominent example of an element where this will happen. Clicking "show comments" will cause the page to reload another several times, then scrolling down will cause it to constantly reload/reset. Pages with video streaming freakout and oftentimes don't work as a result. You'll see that on the initial load the video player is present, but after several white flashes it'll be gone.
It's become my practice to only enable this for a single purpose; when encountering a page with an impassable catpcha, I enable this add-on, validate it using another Cloudflare site, get to the page I initially wanted/needed to visit, and immediately disable it again.
It'd be much more convenient if Cloudflare offered some means of whitelisting for users. I'm only in this mess because I got stuck with a new router and IP following a technician visit.
