- by Daniel, a year agoRated 3 out of 5Excellent, does the job where other reload-addons fail. Bug: When typing in a 2nd browser window on a second screen, the "Timer disabled - you are typing" notification window appears on the other (main) screen, instead of on the screen where I type on a page which actually disabled the timer.
- by Stephen R, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5It does something odd with reloading -- it does NOT do the same thing as actually hitting "Reload" on a page. For example: I log in to a site. The site takes me to login.php to authenticate, then sends a 303 header and redirects me to the front page of the site. Because of the 303, hitting Reload will reload the front page; but this login ignores the fact that a 303 was sent, and tries to reload the login.php file (which fails). Give the plugin a better understanding of HTTP headers and it'll be gold; but as of now it's not quite there.
UPDATE: No... it's even weirder than that. It's "reloading" the target of an iframe, I think(?). Whatever the case, it's not doing what it should do, which is reload the page exactly the same as if I'd hit ctrl-r
- by Firefox user 12534656, 3 years agoRated 3 out of 5I'm pleased with this add-on's capabilities, but it may have a slow memory leak, even when not being actively used to reload a page.
I've been having memory issues with Firefox lately, so I started disabling add-ins one by one. Disabling this one freed up roughly 2 GiB the moment I turned it off. It had been active for about a week (and had probably seen thousands of tabs, millions of loads in that time).
