Rated 3 out of 5 stars

* BOTTOM LINE :
Go with Tab Mix Plus instead -- it does everything TryAgain does and much, much, much more.

* POSITIVES :
This is a solid addon. It does exactly what it says, it's very easy to use, it's stable and, of course, having the ability to auto-reload tabs certainly has it's uses and is a worthwhile feature.

* NEGATIVES :
Tab auto-reload functionality is already available via the Tab Mix Plus addon and has been for a long time. Furthermore, TMP's implementation is also more configurable/versatile than TryAgain. Finally, taking into account that TMP is truly a Firefox essential addon for providing dozens upon dozens of highly useful features (of which auto-reloading of tabs is relatively a minor one in comparison), and, well, TryAgain is ultimately redundant or obsolete despite being an otherwise solid addon.

* OTHER CONSIDERATIONS :
TryAgain might be useful for high performance users who want to keep Firefox as streamlined and minimalist as possible but absolutely require auto-reloading. While Tab Mix Plus isn't exactly a resource hog, it's wealth of features makes for one of the more robust addons out there and TryAgain consumes almost no resources in comparison due to it's tininess.

This is hands-down the best add-on out there. If you have a laptop and your internet runs on a mobile broadband device like mine does, then your internet connection is probably pretty unstable.

My internet usually ends up showing me page errors, load errors, and connection errors about 50% of the time. However, with this add-on, It will simply continuously reload it until it works and goes through. Now I can step away from my laptop and not worry about having to come back to an error message in my browser!

This addon is really useful when a webpage has trouble being loaded. Typical example: you launch Firefox with your multiple home pages but you are first redirected to a login page for the wifi network you decided to use. By the time you complete the form, your webpages are loaded again until the process is completed!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Really useful addon if using Tor where pages might take a few attempts to open, saves a lot of F5'in.

Firefox performance Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really like this addon but there is one problem: I have a very unreliable wifi connection which can go down unexpectedly and remain so for some time. This addon tries to reload webpages repeatedly in the meanwhile, and after some time Firefox performance decreases (eventually it comes to a halt). I have to kill the process and start it again. The issue is resolved if I uninstall the addon.
Is it some memory leak issue?

This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Thanks for the feedback. Some resources are indeed kept in memory (in case the page repeatedly fails to load), but these are cleaned up in the background.

Could you please open a new issue on the support site, so I can further diagnose the problem with you?

Please don't use Facebook as the home page for your addons; I can't post an issue without getting an account, and I refuse to get a Facebook account (it's not safe; Facebook downloads spyware onto your system). Mozilla offers sites for the home pages of addons that aren't a risk to your system.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

The Facebook page serves exclusively as a fan page, as we find the add-on page and support pages sufficient. Since you're looking to post an issue, please visit the support page (http://getsatisfaction.com/tryagain/products/tryagain_tryagain_for_firefox). You can find this either directly through the add-on information or on the right side of this page. I'm sorry to see this misunderstanding being reflected in the add-on's rating.

Good Job !
I made the same kind of extension, but yours is really effective :-)
Just a little bug to report.
When you click in the "downforeveryoneorjustme", you'll be redirected in this : "http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/http:/www.sitedown.com"
It'll be this instead : "http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/http://www.sitedown.com" (look, a slash is missing)
I'm in ff4b8.
Thank you

Thanks for reporting this! The bug has been resolved in version 3.4.5.

This so-called semi-automatic, rather! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This so-called semi-automatic, rather!
If you want to call is automatic, no need to press the Retry button can also be connected to the internet again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.4). 

Nowhere does TryAgain suggest that it monitors your internet connection. TryAgain retries loading the page for any variety of reasons, for instance when a website is temporarily down, in a redirect loop or the connection simply times out.

It appears by the 1-star reviews you have placed on this and other add-ons that you are simply trying to promote your own. I find that rather disgusting. If you have a specific problem, however, please feel free to report it on the support site (http://getsatisfaction.com/tryagain) so that I can work towards a resolution.

I'm loving the new features!

great add-on! thanks m8 :)
i wonder if you can add an option to customize some proxy so that the add-on will use a proxy automatically when it tries again

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.2). 

In the upcoming version you can instead use Coral CDN, a third-party content delivery network. I am presently looking for a partner add-on developer to team up with to make the proxy option more useful. If you have any suggestions, please post them to the support site: http://getsatisfaction.com/tryagain/topics

fox freeze Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Using Fox 3.5.6 and TryAgain 3.4.1,
Fox got freeze while searching for 'Down for everyone or just me?' or 'Uptime Auditor'. (IMHO)
some tuning may required to solve the problems.

Overall, GREAT add-on...thanks.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.1). 

I'm delighted to say that this problem has been fixed with help from the community in version 3.4.2!

Loving it! but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add on is a must! Thanks for making it :)
But since i installed "Resurrect Pages"*, it doesn't work for me anymore.
Can you please fix that?
(* https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2570/)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.1). 

I've taken a look into making TryAgain compatible, but as Resurrect Pages replaces the entire error page with its own (opposed to adding controls where needed, as TryAgain does), it's simply not possible. I will contact the developer to see how we can work together.

If you find this to be a blocking issue, please feel free to report it on the support site: http://getsatisfaction.com/tryagain/topics

I love this addon! It does exactly what its supposed to. The new links for google cache and a couple other services are great, very handy! :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.4.0). 

Thanks, I'm glad to hear it! I intend to add even more services in future versions.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Yes, I am using firefox 4.1 beta and I was waiting for this update but it has a little problem, here is what happens, the firefox shows error "page cannot be loaded, server not found" or "link not available" whatever... right after that this addon refreshes automatically and after that the page starts to reload and status bar shows" looking..." and then if the server is found "connecting to..." but here comes the problem while the page is trying to connect to server the "try again addon" hits refresh again so it again goes back to "looking.." then "connecting..." and then again it refreshes, so therefore page never loads, I hope I had made it clear sir, the previous version works great and its very time saving addon, I hope you can fix it soon.

thanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3.0). 

Thanks for taking the time to file a report. Fortunately, this problem was already posted on the support site, and should be resolved in the upcoming version. If you still have any problems, please post it on the support site.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

There seems to be a problem with the latest update. If a page doesn't load (times out), the add-on does try to reload it but the page keeps trying to load while never actually loading. The status bar keeps fluctuating between "Looking up..." and "Connecting...". This didn't happen with the previous version of the add-on. So, right now, I'm back to the older version. Please fix this if it's a bug in the add-on. Other than that, the add-on is very nice and does its job perfectly.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3.0). 

This seems like a bug. I was planning on submitting a new version this week, but I'll postpone that to take a look at this issue. If I understand correctly, when the page successfully loads, TryAgain keeps reloading it? If this isn't correct, please open an issue at http://getsatisfaction.com/tryagain

This is one of my must have extensions and the inclusion of a link to "down for everyone" has just made it even better

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.3.0). 

Great to hear it! I'm sure you'll be happy with the next version: it automatically checks if the site is available using two separate auditors.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This would be 5 stars if this addon were:
1) updated for 3.6 and
2) included a check with something like "www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com"

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.0). 

This is an excellent idea! I'll try to get in touch with the site owner to get permission and see if there's an API available. Do you know of other such services?
