- Rated 5 out of 5by circcc, a month agoUnlike other extensions, if you clean Firefox with CCleaner, the 'View EXIF data' menu item disappears from the image context menu. FF111.0b6/Win11.
Edit: Fixed now. Thanks
Developer responseposted a month agoUPDATE:
A new version 2.8.0 of xIFr has been released. It will try to re-define menu-item at every new startup of the browser. I haven't tried deleting webext.sc.lz4 myself. Not convinced that it is a good idea to do so. But my best guess is, that this will make menu-item come back for you at first browser-restart after extension has updated (if you haven't already fixed menu-item by un/re-installing of xIFr).
You seem very confident ii is a problem with xIFr. Do you have some technical insight and are able to elaborate? I'm just using the recommended way from documentation to define menu item. That is using browser.menus.create() in browser.runtime.onInstalled handler.
I find it hard to blame xIFr, if you delete a file in Firefox profile using CCleaner. What CCleaner does is sometimes wrong/bad. But there's a Firefox bug that eventually could be related though: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1817287 ? (Though I had the impression that bug was related to MV3 extensions only - xIFr is still only an MV2 extension).
For now, I will assume you can get the menu-item back by un-installing and re-installing xIFr? But I will do some investigation and see if I can make menu-item more robust or "self-regenerating". I hope you can test/verify if a future xIFr-version eventually fixes the problem?

Developer responseposted 5 months agoThanks Ron.
But not sure what you mean by "I can't find it on my PC"?

- Rated 4 out of 5by Dennis, 2 years agoAlmost perfect, only needs a close button :)
Developer responseposted a year agoHi Dennis. A little late answer...
Thanks for comment. Are you aware that besides the usual (in Windows at least) [X] button and Alt-F4 combi, you can also close popup with the ESC key?
- Rated 5 out of 5by schinge , 2 years agoVery useful plugin. The only thing I am missing is a setting to adjust the size of the popup window because I have to make it bigger every time I use it.
EDIT: OK, the "Snap left" option works - so the addon is getting quite better. :D
Developer responseposted 2 years agoThanks a lot for your review :-) Well, yes. Maybe I should consider an auto-fit size option? But have you tried the "Snap left" and "Snap right" options for Popup position? They should make popup open in full screen height, kinda like a left or right panel on screen.

- Rated 5 out of 5by Mental_Freefall, 3 years agoComparing it to other Exif viewers it has a much better layout. At the moment this is the best Exif reader you can get! It would be nice to have a one click save option, however copy / past also works...
Developer responseposted 3 years agoThanks a lot for the review. I don't think I will make a "save to file" functionality (Not even sure it is possible for security reasons). But I could easily make a one-click "copy meta-data" functionallity, essentially doing same thing as marking meta-data in popup and pressing Ctrl-C. Would that be useful?
Update Dec 15th 2020: Well, I added a "copy to clipboard" button in latest version 2.0.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 16140272, 3 years agoVery nice addon! Works as advertised in the screenshots.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Patrice, 4 years agoI re-EDIT my comment after 8 months as my old comment (below) is not anymore up to date nor accurate with all the update you did on your wonderful EXIF viewer (like the dark mode and so on)
Your FANTASTIC EXIF viewer can even read exif on a picture hidden behind a layer or exif of a photo put as background, or even protected photos by a fake extension. That's impressive, your exif reader shines where lots of other type of EXIF viewers fail.
So In simple words: your exif reader is the best out there, period!
Thanks a lot-a-lot!!!
(I am actually on Firefox 74)
Below is my old comment
I Edit my comment, I was not that fair...
First of all Thanks a lot for your answer.
I tried other exif viewer and they all can read some exif, not all, as well, maybe depending the software the pictures was post processed.
The forum I am speaking about, do not stripe exif ;) but it seems that xIFr does the same as other exif viewer, and even better ;). Maybe php (or imagemagic on the server) has a more extended reading on exif, (just a thought).
In all case, xIFr is certainly the best in the way exif are shown, the most user friendly as well.
I removed all the other exif viewer from Firefox and kept xIFr, it's fast, accurate, well thought and... Beautiful
On Linux I am not in dark mode, it's a personal set-up mixing Dark and default mode. It would be lovely if you can allow to force the dark mode, but i would prefer if you add one more tab for the histogram, like that i can get ride of the histogram add-on i have actually and have all in one add-on ;)
Again Thanks a lot Stig, excellent work!
Firefox 68.0.1 on Ubuntu-MATE 18.04
Developer responseposted 4 years agoHi Patrice
Thanks for the comment.
There are some images it cannot read the exif data of. But in my own experience it is does just as well or better than most other exif-reader addons. Also notice, even though a forum shows exif of uploaded photos, the exif data is sometimes stripped from the scaled or recompressed version actually shown on the forum pages.
The dark mode follows OS settings. In Windows 10 (requires latest Win10 1903) settings, you need to set Dark as your "Color" scheme, or Dark as "Default App mode" if using the "Custom" scheme:
Settings -> Personalisation -> Colors.
I hope that can help you a bit. Unfortunately I don't know how to set it up in Linux/Ubuntu, or if it is supported at all on Linux.
Will probably add a setting allowing you to force dark mode in final version.
UPDATE: Thanks a lot for your updated review :-)
