- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 16363682, 2 years agoVery useful app to report unrelated, bizarre, untrue youtube recommendations. I was sick of them, thank you Mozilla <3
- Rated 1 out of 5by Cory Sanin, 2 years agoIt definitely slows down YouTube on my high-end desktop. Whether you think this addon is a good idea or not, the execution is currently unusable.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 16286609, 2 years agoThe overall idea is very good. Conspiracy theories are a real threat and they are spreading over the internet faster than ever. And Youtube promotes them, it's just crazy.
One thing about this addon: It slows the Youtube Experience down a lot. Everything is laggy with this plugin installed. I currently have it disabled. When this gets fixed, I will enable it again.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Other Otter, 2 years agoThis is a great idea, but you shouldn't have to click on a video before reporting it. If I get recommended a regrettable video, I'm not generally going to click on it (or perhaps that's the point, but would I even know it to bre regrettable at that point?)
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 16314216, 2 years agoit doesn't recognize that im on youtube, even though my url is https://www.youtube.com/
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13066644, 2 years agoI usually get messages on my iPhone from YouTube so don't know if I should vote on it here - you'll have to let me know.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Rodrigo, 2 years agoI think this is a good idea, in spite of the other issues that Firefox could have as a browser. I'm really concerned about the way we are heading as humanity while driven by social networks like youtube or facebook. We need to push back the widespread and harmful rabbit holes where people gets sucked into conspiracy cults.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Proton UI color fix, 2 years agoThis really should not be Mozzila's priority. As their financial situation is getting worse, they should focus on things that actually matter for the future of web. Like keeping Firefox alive to help fight Google's monopoly and literal W3C group ownership.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 13790203, 2 years agoToo many people say they are being shown content that is seriously harmful as a direct consequence of viewing videos about something else. I'm so glad this research project exists to help fill the transparency gaps of YouTube so we can better understand how their automated recommendations work and hold them accountable.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Dr. Jeff, 3 years ago**TL; DR: Although well-intentioned, the way this extension works enables Echo Chambers and Censorship to thrive, and may go against the idea of a "Healthy Internet"; but at least it's open source.**
Positives: At least I can find a plus on the Open Source...
Negatives: Having read all the Instructions and Privacy Notice, analyzing it through my personal lens on Censorship and Echo Chambers, and using it for a little while, I can safely say this could be a tool for censorship and echo chambers. (Suggestions will be sent later to Mozilla.)
This is specially worrying given the bottom disclaimer on the RReporter page:
"This is part of a broader movement for a healthy internet."
