Workaround for issue with not being able to type your email address in Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If you're encountered the problem mentioned in a number of these reviews where you attempt to login to the RescueTime add-on and you can't type in the email field, the work around from the add-on developer is mentioned here ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/rescuetime-for-firefox/reviews/804290/ ) stating "We've been able to reproduce the issue. As far as we can tell, the problem with not being able to interact with the window ONLY happens when the RescueTime icon located on the menu panel (under the hamburger icon on the far end of the toolbar). If the RescueTime icon is directly on the browser toolbar, the window works. While we work on a fix, the workaround is to move the icon to the browser toolbar. If you do not want the icon on the toolbar, you can put it there temporarily, sign in, then move it back to the menu panel and the site tracking should work just fine."

Doesn't work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Just like the others complain... it does not pop up after install.

Glitch in the system and I am surprised that the DEV with such low ratings.. is not fixing this issue.

Not fully compatible with multi-process Firefox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It causes issues with other extensions (Tab Groups in my case) because it has not been updated to work with multi-process Firefox.

Problem with Login Ubuntu Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If you put the icon inside the right menu space you cannot write your email, you have to locate the icon at the main bar in order to work.
Hope it helps

Works perfectly on Windows 10 with Firefox 50 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After adding the extension button to the toolbar I was able to click the button, log in, and start tracking.

My only wish is a, user definable, option to combine websites and apps as one. For example, I'd like messenger.com from the web and Facebook Messenger from Android to be counted as the same RescueTime Activity.

Works Perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works just fine. Remember to put the icon somewhere visible after installing by going to "customize" on Firefox. Signed in without issues.

Login Edit Box Disabled on Firefox - No Login Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Environment:

Ubuntu 16.04.1 - up to date
Firefox 49.0 - up to date
OS and browser otherwise stock.

3) Add RescueTime extension to firefox menu by clicking on the menu and then customize and then dragging it to the menu.
4) Click on the rescue time icon, and choose to sign in
5) Attempt to type into the edit box provided

Results Expected:

You can type your email address and see the characters, then continue to the password section.

Notes:

This is probably an issue with newer versions of firefox on linux. Happy to debug further if you have a way for me to get the debug info - can compile browsers.

no icon, cant login Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Ubuntu 16.04 x64, latest firefox
Cant login to account, don't see the any icon for addon.

Cannot input anything into the email field in login page Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I cannot input characters into the email field when login in. I want to give negative rating.

We're aware of an issue that will cause this behavior when the RescueTime icon is located in the menu panel. We're working on a fix, but in the short term you should be able to interact with the add-on panel by moving the icon to your browser toolbar. If that does not fix the problem, please open a ticket at help.rescuetime.com and we will be happy to assist.

Can't login Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I can see the RescueTime icon on the tool bar. After clicking the icon I can see a login window which asking me to input my E-mail address. However, I can't input any character in the E-mail field.

I also tried to copy and paste my E-mail address to the field but nothing happened.

We're trying to reproduce

Hello there, we're trying to reproduce this problem, but haven't been able to so far. Can you email support@rescuetime.com and let us know which browser version you're using and which OS? We'll dig into it asap and fix whatever is broken.

Update Aug 9, 2016: We've been able to reproduce the issue. As far as we can tell, the problem with not being able to interact with the window ONLY happens when the RescueTime icon located on the menu panel (under the hamburger icon on the far end of the toolbar). If the RescueTime icon is directly on the browser toolbar, the window works. While we work on a fix, the workaround is to move the icon to the browser toolbar. If you do not want the icon on the toolbar, you can put it there temporarily, sign in, then move it back to the menu panel and the site tracking should work just fine.

Not working Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not show up after installing. Do I have to create an account?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.221). 

You will need an account for the tracking to work, but the button should appear on the toolbar immediately after you install the add-on (you can create an account after). Do you see RescueTime listed under Tools > Add-ons after installing? If so, maybe the icon is buried and you should be able to find it by right clicking the toolbar and selecting 'customize', then dragging the icon to the toolbar. If that doesn't work let us know at www.rescuetime.com/contact and we'll be happy to help figure out what went wrong.

Works fine! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon is extremely useful to allow me to track my internet usage with RescueTime. I do not have any customisation issues with the addon and it seems to stay logged in. Hopefully more users will update/post their reviews. Make sure you get the latest Firefox version and keep your addons up-to-date to avoid issues.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.20.1-signed.1-signed). 

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

keeping signing out on Firefox. Tested on three OS, windows 8 64bit, windows 7 64bit and Linuxmint 16 64bit.

Non intrusive and simple Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The add on is quite good. I didn't encounter the customization issues and the add-on didn't change anything.

The setup was simple and it has become an essential productivity tool for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.20.1-signed.1-signed). 

still removing customised toolbar Rated 2 out of 5 stars

after all the other reviews stating the same, its not fixed, its a 2 year old bug now :( wiped all my custom settings and positions. very poor

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.19.1-signed.1-signed). 

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I like this addon, but as everyone states it removes, all customizations to the Status Bar, I hope this can be fixed in the future releases, until then I guess I will refrain from using this addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.18.1-signed.1-signed). 

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

An absolute NO GO! This AddOn kills all your own customizations on status bar and tool bar. Whatever you have put there, is now deleted, when you install this! This is not acceptable!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.18.1-signed.1-signed). 

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Same issue here, the add-on still wipes out every single customization to my Firefox. Shouldn't this just add a button to my toolbar? I love RescueTime, but the extension is still totally unusable.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.17.1-signed.1-signed).
