- by OLAB, 10 months agoRated 4 out of 5Very simple and neat, Ofc it's not another Postman but it suits my needs very well.
I've only complaint is that collections don't work for me at all! I can create collection but I can't add any requests to it, the (+) button doesn't do anything. Please fix this issue.

The response area should be more present. So change the position of reponse and history - or at least let the user change the place.
- by Craig, 5 years agoRated 4 out of 5Just wanted to update my review. Since the breaking changes that happened 4-5 months ago this add-on has been stable and working flawlessly.
My biggest issue now with the add-on is the UI is a little on the clunky side. Still very usable but there is room for improvement as well.
I do recommend this add-on.
Disclaimer to users: I do no perform a lot of REST-based operations. I have a list of REST calls that I have saved and forget about until I need one for a specific reason.
Overall this add-on is very good and works well.
A recent update to it (0.x to 1.x) had some big changes and caused all saved REST calls to be deleted because of a technology change of the add-on.
This is a very unfortunate incident but I'm going to assume that how it works now will be stable for the foreseeable future.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoHi, thanks for leaving feedback!
I'm sorry to have cleared your collections, I know this is painful. As you may have read elsewhere, Firefox will automatically update extensions regardless of version number. But, in case you were not aware of this, there is actually an export feature in the settings menu (the cog wheel above the request) :)
If you wish to recover your old collections, it may be possible to go into the old versions of RESTED (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rested/versions) and download version 0.9.1 and see if your collections are still there. If they are, you can export your collections and import them to the new version. If you try this, please leave a comment with your experience.
Also, I can assure you that this should never happen again. I batched all the breaking changes together, making sure that the extension now is worthy of 1.0, i.e. a stable version.
