Thought toolbar icon had gone. Instead had just been changed and re-named so as to not be entirely obvious as to it's function. Now icone is back, but has a white background instead of transparent, so looks out-of-place on my gray toolbar. Otherwise made happy again :)

Shorten and copy URL icon changed

Hi,

In the latest version I changed the toolbar icon. Right click on toolbar, drag and drop the icon "Copy URL" to your toolbar - looks like a clipboard.

Works exactly as the earlier icon. Hope this solves your problem and you revise your rating for my addon

UPDATE 19-MAY:
I tried resetting my api_key and pasting it into the addon settings, but unfortunately clicking TEST still produces the same exact error message.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:
Hasn't worked for quite a while now. I've double- and triple-checked that my API key is correct, but I still get an error every time I try to use this addon:"Error while fetching short url information. Status code:500; Status text: INVALID_LOGIN"

It shouldn't be so difficult

Sorry to hear the problems you are facing. A lot of people are using this without problems. Here are some steps which will help you setup the addon correctly.
1. Go to Firefox-> Addons -> Shorten URL (Bit.ly); click Options button
2. Get your username and api_key from : https://bitly.com/a/your_api_key
3. Paste the username and api_key exactly as they appear in the Addon Options screen and click "Test" button available below the api_key text box

This will immediately confirm if the api_key is valid. If this returns a failure, try resetting the api_key from https://bitly.com/a/settings/advanced - see towards the bottom of the page.
After this you will have to copy the new api_key to options and click "Test" button again.

Hope this resolves your issue.

icon a bit strange... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not bad, only the icon a bit strange XD

Its the bit.ly fish

I have made my own take on the bit.ly icon.. The bit.ly icon is a puffer fish.My icon is like the puffer fish looking at you.

Homyar.

awful icon, change it now! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

great tool, works very well, i use it quite often....

HOWEVER, the new icon is absolutely horrible and i can't believe it's STILL so huge after so many complaints... thanks to the people who have suggested similar tools, i will not use this extension anymore....

PLEASE get rid of the horrible new icon Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This is a wonderful plug-in, but the icon is huge, ugly and just too much to bear. I'm looking for alternatives...

Good but I think we can customize the shorten link. For example: link bit.ly/blablabla and we must change their link bit.l/WECHOICE

Ugly icon. No way to get rid of it.

Well done Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The add-on does what it is supposed to do, simply and easily. Gets five stars for that.

One suggestion for a feature is the function should be in the right-click menu when you right click in the address bar. Seems like the logical place!

This is the best add-on for easily shortening long urls/links for use or sharing. I can't think of a single negative aspect of the add-on, it's easy to install and use.

causes copy and pasting issues Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great program yet it now seems to overtake my copy and paste ability when firefox is open and working with outlook and other programs. By disabling it I regain full use of copy and paste with it on I can copy but not able to paste.

Pro: Very, very useful. Very useful. Did I mention that it's useful?

Con: No glaring weaknesses. However, it would be nice if the "Shorten and Share on Facebook" function either automatically closed the tab that's opened or brought you to Facebook. On my machine, when I click "Share Link" I see a focus change then... nothing. Facebook is updated, but I would only know my post was successful by going to Facebook.

Twitter, on the other hand, works great.

Thanks for your feedback. Can you elaborate on what you mean by "please provide icon display option"? I did not understand what exactly you would like.

Stupid ICON and ask for login... very bad !!!!

Very simple, very useful, works perfectly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly using a very well-established URL shortening service. Just have to get your API key after signing up at bit.ly - it's at http://bit.ly/a/your_api_key in case you can't find it ;)

Only bad thing is the really ugly icons - sorry, they're just plain horrid! Luckily, you don't need to use any of them (everything's possible with a simple right-click on the page whose URL you want to shorten or directly on the hyperlink you want to shorten), but it'd still be nice to be able to configure the icons :)

Also, if you could have an in-address bar icon such as the addon for spedr.com gives you, that would make it the best URL shortener on the planet :)

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this is quite a concise add-on. no issues as per API usage.

i'm using v0.56 on FF RC2, and i don't show any buttons; the only way i knew that it was installed was when i did a right-click on a page... but what if i can't do that? i don't see any way to bring them out.

4/5 stars!
