Great addon to liven up your home page. I've been missing chrome landscape images for my home page and this addon solved it so thank you. But beware of the widgets, they turn this addon to a memory hog
- by Ensign Epic, 3 days agoRated 3 out of 5Gotta say, it is really nice to open a new tab and see a random landscape, and the different widgets all have a ton of utility. The app has such amazing potential but it's held back by a ton of little bugs & its lack of some features.
To start with, the widgets are not drag and drop while editing; you click a button and it gets sent to that part of the screen. This would not be an issue if the text of certain widgets did not overlap due to apparent bounding issues. Instead of using the open space below it, text blocks lines will run an indeterminate amount before a line break. Another issue is that certain widgets are lacking features one would consider rather important. As a quick example, the Quotes widget doesn't let you choose how often they update, just the types of quotes. Another is the inability to choose which provider is used in the search bar. The final issue is that this lacks an "article" widget, for example, like the default home page's Pocket, which sorta stinks because it was always cool seeing what random articles they had to read.
I want this to be a 5 star app, it can EASILY get there as the state of the app suggests many of these are readily implemented. But there's so much suck left in this extension before it gets there, I gotta go with the 3 star for now. Looking forward to the day I can fully retire the default Firefox home screen for this.

I came across a bug that should be reported that breaks functionality. The issue is with the `.topRight` widget area. If something with long text is positioned there, for example **Quote** module, the `.Widgets .container .Slot > *` will overlay the settings button `div.Overlay`, rendering it unclickable. The fix for this is to set a **z-index** on the following:
Please check this out and fix!
