  • It was an amazing addon but stopped working a few months ago. Will keep an eye and hope the developer updates so it works again, ideally in forefoxes prior to v57 because Firefox Quantum is pretty awful IMHO.

  • I am also all of a sudden having problems with this extension just started two days ago. Have deleted and re-installed add an and continue to get error code 201 If someone can fix issue as add on no longer seems to be communicating with yahoo finance it would be much appreciated

    StockFox Toolbar has alway worked great. Since Firefox 56.0 nothing works anymore. Is something known here, is there an update?
    Would be nice if I would get an answer.
    Many Thanks

    I'm investigating. It looks like Yahoo may have disabled their Finance and Stock webservice APIs:

  • Fairly decent app and does what it needs to do.

    Problem for me is that I invest in a lot of speculative stock, so I really need the current price to 3 decimal places but this app only works to 2 decimal places

  • Stock Ticker has not worked properly for months and it quit updating so I disabled and installed StockFox. It does not show on my status bar though it sensed all the stockss in my portfolio from Stock Ticker.

  • Tried a stock with symbol DLF.NS , showing N/A , cab you please help on this.
    Appreciate your support

  • Thanks for fixing the N/A problem. Glad to have StockFox working again!

  • New version fixes the N/A problem. Thanks, Tom!

    Sorry about the troubles - can you try this version and see if it fixes the problem?

  • After 4 + years of no maintenance this no longer works.. returns N/A values for all symbols.. looks like a yahoo finance issue but the extension is now worthless. Don't waste your time. This addon should be withdrawn at least as of FFX 35

  • It's a nice tools, but it can not add ShangHai stock symbol, for example, 601988.SS

  • good work devs

  • Like a ticker tape, the stocks scroll across their own toolbar above the Firefox tabs. Unfortunately, they spend most of their time off the screen, out of sight. The scrolling speed can be adjusted, but the items are still invisible, usually. I'm just looking at a few items, and I'd be happy if they were just centered in their toolbar, instead of moving around and getting lost. My workaround is to open a MarketWatch window. I hate to leave one star, but the programming should be checked for usability before it's released. Good idea, poor implementation. The guy that wrote the review titled "Very Useful Tool" should have let the ticker run long enough; then (s)he'd have seen it disappear.

  • With Firefox 21:
    1) the don't show scroll bar option doesn't work
    2) the Apply button doesn't work - ie you constantly have to restart Firefox
    3) the Hide on weekends etc option doesn't work
    My feedback: scrap the ticker. Just enable user to load up his stocks and allow to view at a click. You'll get much praise.

  • I find this to be a very good tool that gives the basic information without a lot of overhead. I recommend it to anyone looking to keep an eye on investments throughout the day

  • Indeed. Simply does not work. Added APPL and ^DJI. Scrolls all the way to the left, then simply disappears.
    Like another reviewer stated: don't bother. FireFox 14.01

  • Frustrating and kinda buggy...
    ... new stocks added to list would appear when first applied and saved but upon closing and restarting firefox they would no longer appear on the list and stocks that were removed from the list would return.
    Toolbar also freezes and at times just scrolls only one stock multiple times.
    Tried tweaking scroll display settings with little or no success.
    Looking for something a little more stable.

  • Great idea, just executed poorly. Stock ticker either crashes or gets stuck randomly, and then stops showing some of the symbols.

    Placement of ticker bar is not adjustable. Ticker operation is jittery enough to be a distraction.

    Don't bother with this one.

  • Doesn't work well on a XP Computer, it may run fine for awhile, then will freeze, and stop running, or I may get a error 200 and it won't load at all.

    I had been using firestox for several years, and liked it, but the firestox web site recently disappeared, so am looking for alternative.

    Edit in response to Developer question.

    When it freezes, both the Scrolling toolbar stop, and the Ticker Bar at Bottom Right stop.

    I did a reinstall of Firefox 10, even deleted all the old Firefox Folders in Program Folder, and User Account Folders, but there was no change.

    UPDATE
    I removed S&P, and Dow (^DJI )which I had added and the toolbar has not had a Freezing problem since. I think ^DJI was the real culprit, but hope others who may have had a problem can verify it.

    I will up my Rating if this works out :), and sorry to the developer if my problem was self inflicted.

    Hi there,
    Was it just the scrolling ticker that stopped updating? Or does the rotating status bar stop as well?

  • It keeps freezing on me while it is scrolling. It will randomly stop regardless if I am browsing or idle. Only after closing Firefox and restarting, often more than 2-3 times will it start to re-scroll again.

    Stock Ticker by Jeremy Gillick (not supported or updated for years) was the best ticker EVER for Firefox.
    It is/was the benchmark all current and future tickers should aspire to be.

  • This works great. Finally a replacement for the old stock ticker that works in the newer version of Firefox.

  • Day-One I was very pleased (although it was hard to limit the distraction of the "crawl" aspect in my browser window), but on day-two of use the crawl at the top is not updating--has yesterday's data. However the listings in the status bar are updating (as is the "View stocks and portfolio" data). Nothing I have done has gotten the crawl ribbon to update.

  • It's good, and I agree with "tez1", difference amount and percents of exchange rate (EURRUB=X and etc.) are not displayed. Please correct this fail and extention will be great!

  • Still not working for ^DJI symbol. Last update was 11/4/2011. It's acting as though the market is closed.

    FF 7.0.1
    SF 1.3.2

    Added MSFT symbol and it was current as of today.

    ** UPDATE 11/10/2011: Looks like Yahoo's feed is now updated. **

    Yes looks like Yahoo's feed is stale. See this request that stockfox makes (we use ^DJX since Yahoo doesn't expose ^DJI):

    http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=^DJX,MSFT&f=snk1c6pt1d1

    You'll see that the DJX data has not been updated since 11/04. I will try to follow up with Yahoo to investigate.

  • Very nice and useful, uses Yahoo finance data. Only one thing does not work completely: If I subscribe currency updates (EURCHF=X), the exchange rates are displayed correctly, but the differency to last dayßs rate (amount and percentage) are not displayed.
