Used to Be a Fantastic Add-on, But No Longer Works Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This was, for years, my favorite and most-utilized add-on. But the tracker blocking hasn't worked for several weeks (months?).
I go to site ABC. I see by the red "2" on my Blur toolbar button that Blur is blocking two of their trackers. Yay!
I click my button, then "Tracking," and note that site ABC uses two trackers: Facebook Connect and Google Analytics. However, both are labeled "unblocked."
Okay, that's weird. Why would there be a red "2" if it wasn't blocking anything?
I dunno, but no problem. I'll just do a quick switch-on of both trackers and refresh the page. Simple.
After refreshing the page, Blur reverts both trackers to "unblocked."
This is how it has gone on. Over. And over. And over. And over again. EVERY site. EVERY tracker. It no longer blocks a single thing. FAIL.
I LOVE This Service, But the Add-On No Longer Works! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Don't get me wrong—I absolutely love this service. It is truly an invaluable tool.
But unfortunately, as of Firefox 42, the add-on no longer works. All functionality has ceased, and the toolbar button has disappeared. I can't even get to the settings through the Add-Ons screen.
This is *mostly* Mozilla's fault because they no longer allow Firefox users to disable Add-On Signing. But it's also Abine's fault because they haven't updated this add-on in nearly five months to verify & signed by Mozilla.
So FIVE stars for Blur, minus FIVE stars for zero functionality, equals ZERO stars. Until they update it.

I tried resetting my api_key and pasting it into the addon settings, but unfortunately clicking TEST still produces the same exact error message.
Hasn't worked for quite a while now. I've double- and triple-checked that my API key is correct, but I still get an error every time I try to use this addon:"Error while fetching short url information. Status code:500; Status text: INVALID_LOGIN"
