Adoro este add-on, ele é meu preferido. Mas a última atualização (2.0.6). Está fazendo desaparecer o ícone da barra de add-on superior diretia. Isso acontece toda vez que reinicio o firefox (21.0a2). Firz a remoção completa do simple currency utilizando também (eCleaner mais recente) e fiz uma nova instalação limpa da versão recente 2.0.6 mas mesmo assim ainda faz desaparecer o seu ícone quando reinicio o navegador. Por favor adoraria que conseguisse consertar isso, por favor, por favor, por favor, obrigado! e um abraço! - (Brasil)
If the toolbar icon disappears the right click on the toolbar and customize the toolbar by dragging the 'simple currency converter' icon to the toolbar.
If the button is disabled (blurred) on every Firefox restart then go to the options and check 'Enable conversion on Firefox start'
Please update your review if this helps, thanks
Since FF 19.0.2, I noticed Firefox would randomly hang completely if there's Amazon/Ebay sites opened along with gmail (not sure if it's the only way that hang FF). Disabling the extension prevents the problem. Too bad, it's currently my favorite currency converter addon ...
So cool to see actual figures on the page you're looking at without having to click or go anywhere. The icing on the cake is a toolbar toggle button allowing for instant enable/disable. Great add-on, would so love to find a similar tool for detecting & converting timezones, so if anyone knows of one please let me know!
Update: There is a new version (1.0.15) that is bug-free and works fine.You should get it from here:
Problem solved.Thank you Dev
My earlier post:
It has a bug. I used to love and use currency converter version 1.0.13 for FireFox, and it does what it is supposed to do, but it really slows the browser down, especially when trying to load Google Images or vids. With this add-on enabled, Firefox sometimes stops altogether and says (not responding). This problem goes away as soon as I disable the converter. It must be scanning for prices continuously, (even when disabled) and I informed the dev, but I guess there is no way to turn it off completely. What a shame! :(
Please try version 2.0.4.
Have totally rewrote it
Edit: after contacting the dev, within a day he fixed the problem for me. It still isn't perfect when activated, but when deactivated, it won't run the background process that caused the problem. And that's good enough for me. Great support!
Scc is a great extension that has helped me with converting prizes on sites as eBay and Amazon.One bug keeps persisting though. When visiting the google image search site, firefox begins to run very slow and hangs intermittently. This only happens with scc installed. Whether the extension is enabled or disabled doesn't matter; the problem keeps persisting until the extension is removed. After that the problem is over.
Please try version 2.0.4.

I didn't even expect it will turn out THIS useful and convenient to use this addon. So tiny and so helpful. Literally changed the way I see online stores or just texts with sums. The toggle shortcut is also a great idea. My must have addon from now on )
Certainement un bon add-on, très discret, convertit instantanément les prix affichés sur une page dans la monnaie désirée. Cependant pour mon premier test sur une page tous les prix en $ présents sur les cotés (publicités, promos etc), ont bien été convertis, mais pas le prix du produit de la page "produit". désinstallé.
Very cool add-on! Really. Simple and does exactly what it's supposed to do (well, almost).
The only small issue i found is the text "selling for less than $.70/GB" in a page, which was not converted to Euros as i expected. I'm guessing it's due to the missing 0 before the dot.
Other than that, excellent (so far).
PS: Updated rating to 5 stars for the immediate bug correction. Excellent work!
Fixed the issue in version 1.0.12
Поставлю хорошую оценку, потому что когда нормально работал - то это супер плагин. Вы у меня спрашивали на каком сайте тормозит. Отвечаю - только что проверил на версии ФФ 11.0, и тоже самое тормоз на версии ФФ 14.0.1. Даже при выключенной конвертации тормозит при перелистывании в google reader. То есть при нажатии на кнопку "следующая непрочтенная новость" - зависает секунды на 2-3. Когда новостей пару сотен - то убивает наповал. Долго я вычислял плагин, который тормозит. У меня их штук 50. И нашел таки ( Почему-то Ваш плагин не дружит с гугл ридером.
Да, вы правы что тормозит, надо там переделать немного, посмотрю или возможно что то сделать
Please try version 2.0.4.

Installed this a while ago, used it from time to time and find it does what it should. Very useful app.
Recently found a bug, reported it and had a fix released within the hour. Full credit to the developer.
OK in Greece we still have Euro and not GRD Next year I don't know Waiting to fix it and i will give you 5*
Well done !!! 5*
Fixed that, also it is was possible to manually select euro from the options. Now it should be automatically if installing on a clean from cache Firefox
Created an account just to praise this add-on! Fantastic online shopping usability enhancement. Many thanks to the author!
Nice when it works, but it could not convert Australian dollars (or Fiji dollars, or New Zealand dollars) to US Dollars. How to convert from other "dollars" to US?
Yes you are right, I need to update the extensions description.
It only converts from US $, Euro, pound and rubles.
It is not possible to convert from other currencies
Awesome addon, apart from the issue of it converting my home currency - is there a setting I can't find?
It's an amazing job you've done here. I'm not sure if I'll keep it, because I live across several currencies (USD/ARS/EUR) and I expect to see the correct one for each case. I don't have a main currency. But you deserve all the praise for creating this anyway! :)
Thank you Brenda!
I'll think about adding the options for more than one target currencies
First I fought, could it be that it will detect my currency automatically? Nah.. but when it did..
A brilliant add on that you can't live without! Its absolutely fantastic. Well done!
Thank you very much
Before I discovered this add-on, every time I went to shopping websites with no option to switch to euros, I had to manually convert each and every price. This was very time consuming when I had a lot of prices to compare.
Well, thanks to this really useful add-on, I can save a lot of time by having the converted prices displayed instantly! It's really easy to use while being really useful, something a good Firefox add-on should be in my opinion.
So if you often have to convert prices, take a look at this extension, it is well worth your time!
Thank you! Glad to hear you find it useful :)
This addon is A 5 star hands down. So simple yet so useful for folks like me who shop from UK and US but from another country with different currency.
PLEASE: There is only one little mod I would like to request (for a little more advanced users like myself). If there was an option to set a little +/- markup (or down) so the displayed figure and my actual expense would be closer to each other.
To explain better. I believe the add-on uses the mid pricing for the exchange rate. Noone ever gets those rate real world, thos are just for backs. We usualy get street price with some little markup like 1-4% depending on the currency. Also paypal (which is what most poeple use to purchase ebay item from other countries) has a extra transfer fee from the exchange-rate). Every time I buy something from the UK it will cost me the current medium exchange rate (this is display correctly by your addon) + 4% (this is made up of exchange markup + paypal fees) = the real amount changed to my card.
So for example. Today I buy something on ebay which is 198 296 HUF the addon shows me that that is ~ 189,000.- in my local currency (HUF) then when I go to actually pay for the item paypal charges me 196,000.-HUF. This is due to the fact that they have some commission on the exchange rate.
If you added and option then users can set some % markup so that the amount displayed would match the amount payable even more.
From the above example I would add (as a constant) +4% to the amount display and then this would make the price display match the price to be payed via paypal.
This would be OPTIONALLY so only people that will set anything here are people that actually use/need/understand it.
Thank you for your consideration!
EDIT: What a wonderful developer, her already added the requested function. Enjoy all.
Thank you! Done in version 1.0.7
Thanks for fixing the "Das iPhone 3GS - Jetzt bei o2 CHF 238 sparen"-bug!
I haven't used your add-on for a while now and I decided to reactivate it. And I have to say that I'm very satisfied and happy with it!
It's a very useful tool mostly when browsing the "steam"-shop because they don't display prices in CHF but only in USD, GPB and EUR.
I am really saving a lot of time thanks to your add-on :).
There is a tiny improvement I'd like to propose:
I like using ' to separate thousands. It would be great if you could implement this.
Keep up the good work!
Thanks for your fast reply! Man you're awesome ;).
I haven't tested it yet because the newest version still seems to be 1.0.4. Maybe it'll get refreshed later on.
Meanwhile I have another tiny improvment:
I noticed that when I don't round the result in francs I may get something like 190.23 CHF which is kind of wrong since francs only exist in 5-centime steps.
I'd be glad if you could fix that in one of your next versions (e.g. 11 cent = 15 cent, 23 cent = 25 cent, 38 cent = 40 cent etc.) - but it really isn't urgent plus I don't want to bother you ;).
Added ' to separate thousands, please install 1.0.5 :)
does not work on firefox 9. I tried it on yahoo japan and amazon japan, there is no change.
EDIT: Sorry, misread. It would be nice to have asian currency conversion rates such as Japan Yen and Chinese currency.
Also, if it could auto-convert the price in the page without use of manually pushing a button. Thanks.
Of course it does not work on these sites. As stated in the add-on description: it will convert only dollar, pound, euro and rubles currencies to any other currency. It will not convert yens. So the add-on didn't deserve the rating of 3/5. If you want converting yen, you could ask to add this feature to the next update
The add-on remembers the last state (enabled/disabled). So if you push the button and turn the add-on on then it will auto convert till you will turn it off.
I'll see if it is feasible to add Japan Yen and Chinese currency in the next update
There are some difficulties to implement these:
1. ¥ is used for JPY and CNY. so it is impossible to choose automatically what to convert
2. There are many different symbols for Asian currencies
To implement these the design of the options should be changed.
This extension needs a update for Honduran Lempira (HNL)... please correct currency to € (euro) and $(USD)
What do you mean by updating the Lempira? the currency rate is not correct? Or it doesn't convert correctly euro and dollars. Or in your country it was replaced by euro or dollar?
I've checked it on amazon.com and amazon.de. Both euro and dollar prices are converted correctly with currency rate used from Exchange Rates UK service
Great add-on... please correct currency for slovenia to € (euro).
Thank you! fixed :)
Nice plugin. Can u make it work on html title as well?
<img title="About MYR1,646">
Coz GSMArena store all price value in img title.
search in titles will really complicate the functionality, I think it is better for performance issues to not implement this, sorry
