very cool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Almost perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is almost perfect update scanner. The ONLY disadvantage in my opinion is the absence of import/export functionality. Since I work in two places, I'd sometimes like to copy all the data to another computer. I do this by exporting/importing bookmarks, but unfortunately this does not transfer custom settings applied to pages. I hope the developer adds this functionality in some future.
Export in JSON format
It sounds like you're exporting in HTML format. Firefox doesn't include custom annotations unless you back them up in JSON format (see https://support.mozilla.org/kb/restore-bookmarks-from-backup-or-move-them).
If you're still having trouble, please report this at the support site https://github.com/sneakypete81/updatescanner/issues.

Essential for keeping up to date Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I find this add-on essential for tracking changes to websites are are updated irregularly. Instead if having to remember to check every day for news, this add-on does it for me. For me it's essential, so much so that I recently downgraded my Firefox version when I found the new one broke Update Scanner.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.3).
Question/Suggestion Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Addon is great as mentioned previously. You might have this feature but I can't find it in the help file. Didn't know how to contact developer directly so I'm posting this here.
I'm looking to exclude certain classes or ids and all their children elements from the scans or check for updates in a specific element. Since the scanner operates before ad-block many websites that use ads, site wide notifications, chat boxes, or online-users do not scan well. Better control of what's scanned will reduce my false positives.
Adblock Plus and Request Policy Continued bypassed by Update Scanner Rated 2 out of 5 stars
By coincidence i detected, that if i open a watched website with Update Scanner to see the changes, that it bypasses the addons Adblock Plus and Request Policy Continued.
It means there are connections to Ads and Requests that are usually blocked by these Addons.
I don't know if it is intended or a bug or there are no other methods to make Update Scanner watching/showing website changes.
Until there are any solutions to solve the bypass i have to deactivate Update Scanner or uninstall it if there won't be any solutions.

error Rated 3 out of 5 stars
anyone know to to stop:
i'm getting it at last 40-42.x versions in every scan...
Very useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Неплохая реализация. Хорошая штука. Жаль только, что настроек крайне мало и нельзя выбирать только нужную часть страницы для проверки на обновление
Very useful. Thanks! If you will do more preferences (where I can choose parts of pages only what I need) it would be perfect!
Great.. but Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I'd like to suggest a feature to let user to put preferences file (I don't where is) in a specific path folder (ex. dropbox directory) so I can sync the scanning... I use many pc all synced. For this addon I need to set every site into every device! :\This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.3).
Fantastic! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a really great add-on. I monitor about 20 sites and this is a great addition to my web toolkit. Thanks for developing it. Is there anyway to export the settings as I'm in the middle of changing PCs and I don't want to have to add all my sites again manually? Thanks, Steve PThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.3).
Export as bookmarks
Thanks for your comments, I'm glad it's useful to you.
The sites are stored as bookmarks, so can be exported using the standard Firefox bookmark system. See https://github.com/sneakypete81/updatescanner/issues/54 for more details.
Rated 5 out of 5 stars

UPD. But what about new bug fixes in 3.2.0? Firefox ESR exist approximately half year.

Used to be great, but stopped working properly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Even though I tell it to only notify of more than 500 character changes and tell it to ignore number changes, it still alerts me with small character number changes... That said I use Firefox 38, I'm not sure how I'm able to run this, as the addon page says my version is not supported.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.3).
Remplace les flux RSS Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Très bien pour surveiller les mises à jour de sites n'ayant pas de flux RSS.
Par contre, je n'ai pas trouvé comment exporter les pages surveillées vers un nouveau compte Firefox, d'où seulement 2 étoiles. :/
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Simpliest way to be informed of site changes.
But need the buttons "Next change" / "Previous change" greatly.
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Best addon I know for keeping track of infrequently visited sites. The notification and its ability to open the changed page as a new tab is incredibly handy.
However, it would be *much* better if you could specify which *part* of a page (html element) you wanted to keep track of, so that dynamic content and other irrelevant parts don't trigger notifications.
"Ignore numbers" is useless Rated 1 out of 5 stars
So many alerts of webpages changing, so I check em out... sure enough, JUST THE NUMBERS have changed. I enabled "ignore number changes" but still receive alerts. Time to find a proper update scanner.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
