Still not working on Linux with latest desktop app (188.8.131.528).
It is not submitting URL reports via the desktop app (stopped working few months ago), ie. its useless :-(. Latest Firefox (57.0.4), latest Linux desktop app (184.108.40.2062)
Simple, concise, works well, helps me saving time
I have not been able to track websites for months. Updated the desktop client, tried the two different extensions on various versions of Firefox. At my wits end.
Works well in standard Firefox Quantum 58.0b3, but not track sites in Firefox Developer Edition 58.0b5. I tested addon on Kubuntu 17.10.
Are you using the add-on in standalone mode, or in conjunction with the RescueTime desktop app for Linux? If the latter, please make sure you have the latest version: https://www.rescuetime.com/get_rescuetime
Good news first: it is finally working! Just make sure you have the latest version of the Firefox add-on and the OSX client.
However, there are bad news for users like me: the add-on only works if you accept cookies in general (like it is the default setting in Firefox). That may not be a big deal for the vast majority of users, but it is a deal breaker for me. I only accept cookies from a specific list of websites I frequently use and require cookies. Even when you whitelist `*.rescuetime.com` to be able to set cookies, the extension doesn't work. The extension seems to require some other cookies or what not, but I'm not able to figure it out. I even debugged through the extension itself, but I gave up. Hope I'll figure it out one day...
To whitelist cookies for an add-on, you need to first get the add-on Internal UUID from 'about:debugging'. Locate the add-on in the list and copy the UUID to clipboard.
Try adding these to your whitelist:
moz-extension://xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxx (the add-on UUID)
Should solve the problem :)
Since Firefox 57 I've switched over from Chrome. This extension initially did not log correctly even though the notes here said it added support for Firefox 57. However, I recently received an update to my rescuetime OSX app and now everything works perfectly as expected. Thanks rescuetime. This is now a 5 star extension.
Best way to keep track of what you actually get up to on the internet all dang day - warning: may be eye opening.
Using the latest 57.0b9 on both standard and developer editions of Firefox for Mac, after installing the RescueTime add-on I can link it to my account just fine, and if I click on the icon in the toolbar the summary does correctly identify which site I'm on.
*But* it never logs any time on these sites. If I visit a site I've not seen in Chrome that day it always reports it as being my first visit. If I visit a site I've seen in Chrome it reports the previous total time spent there but never increments.
If you're using the add-on in conjunction with the RescueTime desktop app, you'll need to make sure you have the latest version of the desktop app for the recent add-on updates to function properly.
Works well and will continue working with FF 57+ :)
Good overall addon, and now works with Firefox 57+
can't track browser time
Causes problems with e10s and will stop working in Fx 57, need to be ported to WebExtensions.
After install, icon is not showed on the bar. One need to go do adjusting options and drag icon onto the bar. Then click it and it works.
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."
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.
It causes issues with other extensions (Tab Groups in my case) because it has not been updated to work with multi-process Firefox.
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
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.
It works just fine. Remember to put the icon somewhere visible after installing by going to "customize" on Firefox. Signed in without issues.
Ubuntu 16.04.1 - up to date
Firefox 49.0 - up to date
OS and browser otherwise stock.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Install rescuetime extension.
2) Restart Firefox
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 Observed - Run 1:
Nothing appears when typing into the edit box. If you task switch away to another window and back, the entire dialog not redraw, but rather becomes a gray rectangle.
You can type your email address and see the characters, then continue to the password section.
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.
Would be great if it worked. It didn't.
signup doesnt work
I'm not sure what might have gone wrong there. Can you open a ticket at help.rescuetime.com? We're be happy to help you troubleshoot this problem.
Ubuntu 16.04 x64, latest firefox
Cant login to account, don't see the any icon for addon.
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.
