- by jagman, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5In performance I would have rated this add-on a 10 stars, BUT, I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL TIMES, WASTED LOTS OF TIME in its "display". It is confusing and I can not get it to work [displaying the the count tab only ONE WAY.] WHITE NUMBER, NO BACKGROUND. All I get is a WHITE number when the options appear to be able to do more to make the count more visible. It is the fastest, most accurate, but the COUNT is not as visible as it could be IF IT performed as it seems it should.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoYou can open a issue on github if you want to, but from what you've written here:
If you're using icon mode: white text and transparent background seem to work for me
If you're using badge mode: this mode was more of an afterthought - there seem to be better addons out there for this case. No badge background isn't possible (though I could implement a transparent icon underneath) - the API only allows opaque colors. Setting the badge text color separately has also only been supported since Firefox 63
maybe you could clarify what exactly you're trying to do which isn't working
- by nd4spd, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5Flickers on tab-change and new tab. Font parameter instructions are confusing and unclear.
Developer responseposted 3 years agoA pretty font selection GUI doesn't seem to be possible, so I decided to just let the user specify the exact value, since it's just a CSS `font` property (except for the size part, which my addon has to set automatically).
I personally use `"fira sans", sans-serif`.
As for the flickering: It does go away if you use the 'Global' option, which would make it so that the number is the total tab count for all windows. If you don't want that there isn't any other way I know of to solve this. It bothers me to, but what can you do, it's an API restriction. But maybe I should just make 'Global' the default.
update: since firefox 62 the flickering should be gone because of the new windowId parameter for browserAction.setIcon()
