Great extension but lacks Multiprocess support.
Thanks for your feedback. I think I'd like to reimplement at some point as a WebExtension if I have the chance, allowing it to be more forward-compatible and work more easily on other browsers. Actually, I'd like to turn it into a more broad-purposed add-on which allows you to use the context menu to grab images, links, text, etc. and shuffle it off to any program/website that you want, one of which could listen for the QR data to decode image data as in this add-on.

I really do like simple small apps that work, and this is one of them.
Glad to hear it's working for you! Thanks for the feedback!
Needed for a long, long time. Good simple add on as it does not automatically use 3rd party software and has simple text return as optional. I would recommend under options that you select the output as text since some sites like mine use QR for messages. Here is a text test: http://www.gunstar1.com/LP.png
Thank you for the review. I've just uploaded a new version (0.6.0)--awaiting review by Mozilla--which splits the existing URL behavior option so that you can independently choose whether to auto-visit URLs when encountered (only when the QR text starts with "http") and otherwise, whether you wish to output in a text box or as text+URLs. The text+URLs option (i.e., "Convert URLs to links) will now only convert into links those portion(s) of the text which are URLs (preceded by nothing or by whitespace).
Simple and functional, and a great name :) thx.
Great to hear!
can you get qr code from image css background-image:url()
Hadn't thought of it, thanks! This is now added, but the version must first go through review here at AMO (or you can get it now from the "Version Information->See complete version history" section or from my repo: https://github.com/brettz9/qr-secret-decoder-ring ). (In case you are also interested in grabbing QR images from videos, I have a branch on my repo for this, but it was not working with the QR codes I was testing despite the fact that I think it theoretically should work.)
