Re: Re: Why Fasterfox Lite send some data to api.wips.com? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Hello Wips.com developers team,

Thank you for show me a way to get about page.

But, I am frustrated very much about as follows.


1) could not disable "collecting infomation" .

I tried to disable collect information on Firefox 12 and Fasterfox Lite 3.9.6Lite.
But I can not disable it from about page.

I unchecked "Enable anonymous statistics" of about page.
Then close about page and open about page again.
"Enable anonymous statistics" was back to "checked".

I changed locale to English.
But I got same result in Japanese.


2) disable "collecting information" manually, but still access api.wips.com

I seted "extensions.wips.stats_permission.fasterfox" to false in about:config.
It reflect to unchecked "Enable anonymous statistics" of about page.
But fasterfox still access api.wips.com. :-(


3) not describe "collecting infomation" in "more information page" of "Fasterfox Lite" at "Add-ons Manager".


4) not describe detail about "Enable anonymous statistics" in "Fasterfox Lite - about" page.


5) No screenshot of "Fasterfox Lite - about" page in this Add-on page.
https://addons.mozilla.org/ja/firefox/addon/fasterfox-9148/


6) A kind of setting "Enable anonymous statistics" shuld be placed in option page.


7) Context menu of Fasterfox do not have "About" menu.


I am happy if you fix and improve Fasterfox as quick as you can.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.6Lite). 

Hi Backy,
your arguments are really reasonable. Thank you for your response and we will start working on these immediatelly :-)

Hello Wips.com developers team,

Thank you for replay.

I could not get "About the addon" page in Japanese what you mentioned.
How can I get it?
Is there any locale problem?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.9.6Lite). 

There shouldn´t be locales problem. If you are in the page with list of all your add-ons and by right-click on the fasterfox lite you will see a context menu and there should be "About" or "About this addon" or something like that.
Please if you have any further questions, write us on info@wips.com. Thank you.

Why Fasterfox Lite send some data to api.wips.com? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I noticed Fasterfox Lite send some data to api.wips.com.

But I could not find any document about it.
Does someone knows why?
