It dosen't working.
Buttons cannot be clicked. None of them, as far as I can tell. Tried several times just to make sure I wasn't crazy, but yeah, this appears to be bricked.
Does nothing in Firefox 40.x. Run Test button does nothing. All other tabs also not working. Please fix this.
Run Test does nothing. Wasted space on the add-on pages. Remove this garbage.
YSlow does not work anymore with the latest version of Firefox (V39 FF)
YSlow is a decent app, but there is a need to develop it, which the founder is doing, but slowly as he/she has not worked with FF recently. It is possible to get a grading and look at the header of each component, including HTTP requests, Use a CND, avoid empty src or href, ... , make favicon small and cachable. This is done as a workaround as follows:
1. Go to Add-ons (about:addons)
2. Click on Options button of YSlow
3. Select Automatically run YSlow when page finishes loading
So the important question is: why slow at developing YSlow?
Yslow not working !!!
Kudos to Barbequemeister for the workaround.
As others have noted, YSlow has not been updated in some time to work with the newest FF releases.
However, if you *only* want to use YSlow and are willing to forego the latest FF updates, BBQmeister found an "older" but supported version of FF that still supports YSlow. The ESR version is the "Enterprise" version of Firefox that is deliberately configured several generations behind the standard version - this is to ensure stability for enterprise users. For now, at least, the ESR is "old" enough such that YSlow still works.
It is June 2015 and I just installed the ESR 31.7.0 version for Windows. I have Firebug 2.0.11 and YSlow 18.104.22.168-signed. Seems to work fine.
NOTE: Barbecuemeister's admonition in installing the ESR version - unless you rename your current Firefox, the ESR version will overwrite your current Firefox. You can have both installed simultaneously.
This tool has not worked in months. What a shame, because if it was working, I would give it a 5 and recommend it to all web developers.
Used to be five stars, now its one. It's been broken since Firefox 36, no updates from the developer. So sadness.
I am using Firefox 38.0.1 .... :( Yslow not working !!!
Use the latest Firefox ESR Version. I used Firefox ESR 31.6.0 for Mac OSX.
Install the Firebug 1.12.8 Addon.
Install the YSlow 3.1.8 Addon.
Open the Firebug Extension and from there you can use YSlow.
PS: Ich you will have 2 different Firefox versions on the Mac, just rename the Firefox program to "Firefox 37" or a similar name. Than you can install the ESR Version and rename it to Firefox ESR. After that you can rename "Firefox 37" back to Firefox or whatever you want. Both Firefox programs will share bookmarks and so on. YSlow will only work with the Firefox ESR version.
such a great addon cannot have been ignored for so long now by the devs (it's been almost a year since it stopped working properly) - most importantly, rulesets, help, and most important of all... printable view don't work. please fix this otherwise brilliant addon.
one star until it's working again, unfortunately, otherwise i'd give it five.
Since most of you missing YSlow on FF are very likely to be a developer who cares about YSlow + Firefox + Firebug. I kindly call for your help. It's been years since I'm not following FF nor FB development. Chances are some change on their end broke YSlow. If only one of you could spend some time investigating I'd be more than happy to merge a PR on Github and push to Mozilla. Thanks.
This does not work on Firefox at the moment. None of the buttons are clickable.
Does not work on Firefox 37.0.1
It is much more better then google's page speed on chrome, so please improve it's work with latest firefox!
Although I'm swamped, I'll try to take a look tonight. It might take some time since it's been a while I'm not developing for Firefox.
I have the same problem as behnampmdg3. What's the solution?
Doesn't work on Firefox for me.
Can anyone help?
None of Yslow panel buttons are clickable!
Good Job. Development next time
Yslow is definitely great! I can check my website performance and see if everything is working perfectly. However, sometimes it does run a little slow, but nonetheless, it's awesome!
YSlow is one of the best tools for web developers ever - it is so much helpful to improve any site by improving access speed and minimizing broadband waste.
However, since Firefox updated itself to version 29, YSlow is completely useless. That is because the only way to access YSlow was through an icon in the add-ons bar, and now this bar does no longer exist.
The same problem happens with some other add-ons, but then you get help if you click on the menu item "Customize" or press F10 to get the menu bar.
-Customize provides you with some of the missing add-on icons, so you can add them either to the address bar or to the bookmarks bar - but then, the YSlow icon is not available.
-The menu bar helps you. But not through the "View - Toolbars" menu, which has the add-ons bar missing so user cannot even opt in to have it, but rather because at the tools menu there usually is some alternative access to the add-ons - but then, the YSlow menu item is not available.
I wanted the print report of YSlow results but Print functionality is not working in latest Mozilla as on 19 Apr 2014
I would not give it even 1 star because i installed it with firebug and it did not give me info about why my pages are slow .
Clicking "Run YSlow" does nothing on 27.0.1. No documentation telling you how to access it (unlike Chrome version), so if you don't know about the Addons bar, you're SOL.
Doesn't really seem to work with many (any?) web sites and latest firefox. Requires a bookmark hack to get running and hasn't been updated for around 2 years.
