- by Firefox user 14200416, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Has one flaw I hope gets fixed soon. Whenever I go back to a webpage from an article (in Tranquility Rdr), the webpage no longer remembers zoom settings. I keep most of my webpages zoomed in so I don't have to wear my glasses. Having to repeatedly zoom back in is a pain.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoThank you for the review.
Please see if version 3.0.21 (available from August 31, 2020) addresses the zoom settings to your satisfaction.
There may be a slight difference in the font size of zoomed pages (compared to the extension customized font size) due to rounding -- I scale the font size based on the zoom percentage rather than reset the zoom to 1 before applying the extension specified font size. This is not the ideal fix -- which requires an enhancement to the webextensions api (functionality not supported at this time).
- by FFUser2017, 5 years agoRated 1 out of 5Complete fail. Yet another FF dud. I was looking for a FF version of the excellent Chrome extension 'Just Read', but didn't find one. This was one of only two readers available for FF and it is just as bad as 'Reader'.
• no keyboard shortcut
• fewer images than original
• no videos
• small text harder to read than original
Chrome 'Just Read':
• keyboard shortcut activates AND deactivates extension
• all images and videos included
• single page that scrolls without having to click on it
• easy-to-read formatted text
Someone PLEASE port 'Just Read' to FF.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoThanks for the feedback.
(1) Keyboard shortcut --> webextensions on Firefox have very limited choices for keyboard shortcuts, many of which are already used for standard browser functionality; and are not user customizable like in chrome; so I've had to give up the keyboard shortcut after porting my extension to use the new webextensions API on Firefox
(2) Text size --> go to about:addons and click on the extension. There are several preferences/options that can be customized by the user.
(3) Images and videos --> I try not to worry about them much in my extension because my focus is only on reading text. Other extensions surely do a better job and I don't plan on competing with them on this front. You may want to try the built in reader in Firefox (just click on the reader icon within the address bar).
(4) Porting "Just Read" to Firefox --> you should definitely contact the author. Mozilla has made it very easy to port Chrome webextensions to Firefox with minimal changes. There are several help pages and guides.
There is also a Firefox extension that will allow you to directly install a chrome extension from the chrome store: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/chrome-store-foxified/
You may want to experiment trying to install "Just Read" on Firefox yourself using the above extension without waiting for the author to port to Firefox.
All the best in your search for finding an extension that meets your needs.
