- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 13165481, 9 months agoLong-time user here. I’m glad the add-on finally removed the privacy-harming log-in requirement for saving pages.
However, when I do want to stay logged in, the add-on repeatedly logs me out every few days or so, so I constantly have to log back in. Would be great if this was fixed and that you stayed logged in until you click the log-out button. If this gets fixed I’ll bump my rating up to 5/5.
Developer responseposted 3 months agoThis will be fixed in the upcoming v3.2 release, coming soon. Thank you.
- Rated 4 out of 5by John Harris, a year agoGenerally works well. It falls short in:
- Frequently auto-updating and then not operating at all until the user agrees to new permissions, which is a drag on workflow.
- Persists in annoying me with pop-up boxes to "check out more great features in settings," which is obnoxious when commercial software does it, let alone when a utility put out by a non-profit does. It should do its job and get out of my way.
- Rated 4 out of 5by pelle, 2 years agoIt's good but sometimes has false positives and thinks that a website is down when it isn't. In those cases there's no way around than to disable the extension. I wish they'd fix that.
But it's absolutely brilliant work the Internet Archive team are doing.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Dark_Ronius, 2 years agoI would like to see the option of a banner rather than a pop up. Other than that, great add on.
- Rated 4 out of 5by 100yenman, 2 years agoポップアップページがやや不快だが、ウェブサイトを手軽にセーブできる点は本当に優れている。
- Rated 4 out of 5by freakedenough, 2 years agoi would love to disable the automatic modal, it sometimes pops up even if websites load successfully (some interference with adblockers probably), which is annoying. yet i would love to have the toolbar icon.
- Rated 4 out of 5by crookm, 2 years agoExcellent extension, it's super useful.
Note that the current version is very outdated, three years out of date now. The github (/internetarchive/wayback-machine-webextension) shows that there is very active development, but changes are not being published to firefox like they are to chrome.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Andrej Shadura, 3 years agoI love this extension, but false positives in recent months have been really annoying, I sometimes needed to press Back up to five times to just be able to see the page I was reading.
- Rated 4 out of 5by active x, 3 years agoAs others already mentioned there's a bug where it thinks the page failed to load when it didn't. If you just provide the option to disable this auto detection it would be great.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 14490699, 3 years agoLately it seems way too quick to jump to a wayback lookup when clicking the 'back' arrow button on Firefox. I'm just jumping back to a page that I had just looked at! It isn't 404!
- Rated 4 out of 5by A Firefox User, 3 years agoLike everyone else has mentioned, the add on is a little over zealous to show archived versions of the page. Other than that it is a useful add on
- Rated 4 out of 5by Mjone77, 3 years agoWorks great, except for it thinking that a working site is down and asking if I want to see an archived version. When this happens I have to spam the back button until it stops thinking the page is down.
Fixing this bug and/or preferably adding an option to disable automatic missing page recognition would make this a 5/5.
