SixOrNot Version History

12 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 3.1.2 181.6 KiB Works with Firefox for Android 60.0 and later, Firefox 60.0 and later

3.1.2 - Fixes a bug in display of address bar icon and incorrect display of toolbar button with v6 sites.

Version 3.0.0 143.3 KiB Works with Firefox for Android 57.0 and later, Firefox 57.0 and later

All-new code for WebExtensions! :)

Sadly, some functionality has been dropped, namely DNS lookup (this will be coming back in Firefox 60, and I'll be releasing a version of SixOrNot that supports this for FF60 beta versions soon). TLS info also missing since there isn't a way to get at this using the WebExtensions API at present.

Copying address info also doesn't currently work, but I'm going to add that back in soon. I've also had to drop the local hostname/IP address listing for now as I don't think there's a way of getting at that information (and I don't think the DNS API will help).

Version 2.0.2 256.6 KiB Works with Firefox 50.0 - 56.*

Bugfix version
- Fixes issue with window IDs not being tracked correctly, occasionally leading to results for a previous page appearing as part of the current one's results.

Version 274.1 KiB Works with Firefox 38.0 - 56.*

- Adds E10S support for future versions of Firefox
- Removes support for non-Australis browsers (SeaMonkey/FF pre version 29) (sorry! It's just become too much to support these with the changes made to add E10S support, version 1.0.1 will keep working for these browsers)
- Lots of refactoring and simplifying of the code
- Adds support for http-on-examine-merged-response
- Integrates documentation into the addon
- Proxy detection and info display (disables DNS lookups when using HTTP proxy, or SOCKS proxy with "Remote DNS")
- Better handling of chrome:// and resource:// URLs
- TLS information about connections, displays icon for secure connections
- Move to using chrome:// URLs for addon resources
