StumbleBar by StumbleUpon

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The new toolbar is terrible.

1. The toolbar does not stay logged in, like the old version did - you have to log in constantly
2. The toolbar widget does not stay visible when in the standard modes - it disappears and when you click the button on the toolbar to attempt bringing it back, it takes you to the StumbleUpon website and stumbles, still not bringing up the toolbar widget. You have to use the web controls at that point. (Also, it seems incredibly slow to stumble now, like it has to forward the requests through more servers than it previously did).
3. When in experimental toolbar mode, to get it closer to the previous design, it's about 50% larger and takes up way too much of the page viewing area.

I've completely removed all StumbleUpon toolbars now. I've been a user since the beginning (my user ID is SyberCorp, and I've got 31k likes and I'm an "expert stumbler") and if the toolbar doesn't get fixed, I'll probably just delete my account.

I may have typed Java in previous post(s), however regardless of which language Roboform uses in the standalone toolbar version is not necessarily relevant. What IS relevant without a doubt is the fact that Mozilla changed many things in regard to both Javascript and Java in Firefox 17+ that caused Roboform to cease functioning. So, having said that, the blame once again falls on the lap of Mozilla.

For the money - in regard to the full version of the product - it is in no way overpriced for the capabilities, functions, security, and it is unparalleled in its form field recognition and filling. I challenge any of you to show me a way to use Lastpass to fill username/password fields accordingly but wait for the user to manually enter text into CAPTCHA/CAPTCHA2 fields (or other fields which require entering a randomly generated series of keys). To save you some time trying I'll tell you now, there is NO WAY to do this in Lastpass (they will even admit it to you if you search their support site). By the way, this feature has existed in Roboform almost since the beginning of its existence.

LastPass is nowhere near as capable or functional as Roboform is (speaking of the full version, at least - not the stadalone toolbar). I have tried switching to LastPass at various points in time since its inception but always revert back to Roboform due to the lack of capabilities and functionalities in LastPass.

In response to the 2 posts after my last post, yes proper planning would most likely have prevented this debacle but there's always still the other possibility - what if Siber Systems HAS BEEN working on this since the beta of Firefox 17+ but the problems are so extensive thanks to Mozilla's decisions to remove the backward compatibility of the specific Java procedures/functions used by Roboform that it's making the task of simply adjusting the code slightly turn into a full-blown redesign and overhaul because of how things will need to tie in together? (rhetorical question)

As for the part about not adding new features until the base product is functional again - who says it's not functional again in their test environment? Maybe it's just not stable enough for public release yet or there are too many security concerns - which given the nature of what Roboform is/does I'd rather wait for it to be fully stable/secure before I store my sensitive data in it.

As to the worth of the product, the product itself has not lost any value over this in my opinion. The product itself did was it was designed to do and did it well. The fault and blame lay with Mozilla - not Siber Systems. You can't expect all software developers to adjust their code in the same time frame as another company does unless they've specifically worked out a plan to wait for each-other to complete each side of the puzzle.

Hopefully this will make all of you stop complaining about the add-on being incompatible with Firefox 17 and up.

Stop posting comments saying the same thing as the previous dozen people said. We all know it's not working in Firefox 17 and up, so you're wasting your time saying it again.

As far as Siber Systems coming up with a fix, you all need to understand that the problem is because Mozilla changed so many things to do with Java in Firefox 17 and up, so if you want to blame anyone blame Mozilla for not leaving backward-compatibility in the browsers.

Also, as to why it's taking so long for Siber Systems to release a fixed version of the toolbar, have any of you considered that maybe they're trying to add more features to the toolbar as the same time so it functions more like the full version? It's always a possibility.

As a PAID customer of theirs I'm a little more annoyed that I have to wait for a fix than most of you other people are, but I'm making do with what I have: Chrome, Opera, or any other browser in the meantime. I suggest you do the same and stop complaining.

I've been using this theme for quite a while and so far it seems to have the least amount of flaws compared with all other themes I've used. I love this one.

For all of you that want to use this with 3.6+ but don't want to wait for the theme to be updated you can download the Nightly Tester Tool from the add-on section. I've done it and I don't see anything that doesn't work exactly the same as it did in 3.5. So far so good. Give it a try at least, if you want.
