- Rated 3 out of 5by Sidney Whitaker, 2 years agoAn excellent protection! I had no idea I was using/benefiting from it--but then I'm a complete amateur.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Marc, 2 years agoMouse over is too aggressive in some sites. Suggested logins menu appears when the login is already filled in and covers login button preventing me from pushing it. Also I would like to be able to pick a alias I already use from a list on mouseover.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 16814634, 2 years agoWhen I click on the relay icon, it inserts a new alias, but I want one of the past alias I created to be inserted here(Because there is a limit of 5 aliases). So I've to manually go to the relay dashboard and copy it from there.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Kelue, 2 years agoExcellent service, but this extension needs some work. Right clicking the floating Relay icon should present you with a list of the aliases you already have generated on your account so you can auto-fill them in the E-Mail form field with one click. As it is now, you have to:
Click the floating Relay icon > click on Manage All Aliases > go to the new open tab > sign in > click the copy button next to one of your aliases > go back to the original tab > past the alias email address.
This is a real annoyance that defeats the purpose of the extension entirely. I could just have a link to Firefox Relay on my toolbar to click on every time I need to copy one of those aliases, because that's effectively all this extension is: a floating link.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Highly, Ltd., 2 years agoThe icon that appears in an "enter email" box offering to create a new email address works fine the last few days. I'm wondering if there is an easier way to use one of the five aliases that have been set up. Right now one needs to:
1. click the Relay icon in the toolbar
2. click Manage All Aliases in the pop-up window (a new window opens)
3. click the copy icon next to the preferred existing alias
4. return to login window
5. paste existing alias
Would you consider implementing a right-click menu in the login field that offers options including creating a new alias as well as the ability to select any current alias? That would require only two clicks, and no page navigation. Seems a lot more convenient to me.

- Rated 3 out of 5by Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, 2 years agoThe service is excellent. It just works and I can't discern any meaningful lag due to having my email forwarded so great job, Mozilla! However, in regards to this add-on specifically, I have a major complaint: I believe if you're going to have an auto-fill feature that places a glyph button in email fields, then the add-on should act like a password vault and let you click on the button > select the created alias you want > address is filled in the field. The add-on has half of that paradigm done well. It allows creation of new aliases and the option to take you into the "full" add-on management screen for more detailed changes. However, it's rather annoying to use a password vault that auto-fills but then when signing up with a relay address (i.e. my vault has nothing to remember yet to auto-fill), I have to go to manage my aliases and copy + paste them into the field. Again, though, I really value the service and it would be a 5-star extension if it let me pick and fill the alias within the current page's form.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 16706737, 2 years agoThe plugin doesn't play well with RoundCube web interface. Limits email search options by rendering pull-down options (Subject, From, To Entire message, etc.) inaccessible when "Show Relay icon in email fields on web sites" is selected.
- Rated 3 out of 5by tbc, 2 years agoI do not like the limitations. I shall use RFC5322 subaddressing wherever possible.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13731281, 2 years agoInitially I was impressed. However a way to continue with more 'aliases' does not present itself clearly. Are there more?....or was this just a flash in the pan !!??
- Rated 3 out of 5by dali@52, 2 years agoHi, I figured out how to work it. The extension says that only 5 aliases can be used. Can you explain that? 5 per day, month or what? I would also like to know if one of these generated alias emails can be used to sign in to sites which are just temporary. In case it were possible, would the verification email be sent to the Firefox email address? I appreciate the clarifications as they don't seem to be listed in your website. Thanks
Developer responseposted 2 years ago5 aliases total. You can use the generated alias emails to sign up to any site. All emails sent to an alias will be forwarded to the primary email address on your Firefox Account.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 16649641, 2 years agoThis is an excellent idea, but I have been having issues with sites recently. The most recent one says, "Email not valid. Please use a valid working email address.
- Rated 3 out of 5by AC1556, 2 years agoIt's nice and works for most sites but it would be useful to have an easy way of auto filling the email address on new signups. Right now you have to go to the Relay website and copy the address every time.
- Rated 3 out of 5by vldr, 2 years agoThe idea and fact that mozilla offers this is admirable of course. But the actual implementation makes it useless (at least for my purposes) and not worth installing an extension for.
- max 5 aliases
- not able to choose where emails get relayed to
