Verizon Usage Monitor 1.34.1-signed.1-signed Requires Restart
by Jay Baldwin
Tired of paying ridiculous overage fees for minutes or data used with your Verizon cellular plan? Verizon Usage Monitor is for you! Helps you monitor your wireless plan's monthly allotment of minutes or data to help save you money.
About this Add-on
UPDATE: Version 1.34 should resolve the issues introduced when Verizon changed their usage summary page on 10/5/2013.
The monitor will sit quietly in the status bar, at the bottom of any Firefox window. After initial configuration, all you need to do to see check your usage is glance at that portion of your screen. Setup is a breeze. Just give it your "My Verizon" username and password, and configure exactly what type of data you'd like to see, and you're on your way! Your login credentials to Verizon are securely stored in Firefox's own password manager, and are never transmitted to us or any other third party. They are only used to securely retrieve your current usage directly from Verizon.
Verizon Usage Monitor will enable you to monitor the minutes and data usage for a single line, multiple lines on a family share plan, or the data for a cellular modem or broadband access device.
This extension is a re-coded and improved version of Winston Huang's Verizon Minutes Used. This project was created with Winston's blessing. It has undergone many updates, including support for new Firefox 4.0 requirements, configurations changes, login reliability, support for data usage monitoring, and more.

A number of people have emailed me because Verizon Usage Monitor does not appear to work on Firefox 4.0. This is because Verizon Usage Monitor is located on the "status bar" on Firefox's user interface, which was renamed to "Add-ons Bar" and hidden by default in Firefox 4.0. The extension actually works as expected, but is simply hidden due to Firefox's new default configuration.
I am working to determine a new home for VzUm on the Firefox user inteface, and will be releasing a new version shortly.
