Good - could be better Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Great idea and simple to use.
1) I have multiple Wish Lists at a single Amazon site. When adding, the drop down box only ever offers the default 'Wish List' name instead of the actually lists I have. On clicking, I'm pushed into the Amazon site where I can choose the particular list. That is a pain if you're adding lots of items. I'd expect the drop-down to present the actual wish list names I have so I don't have to go into Amazon site until I'm ready to compare products .
2) For sites where there is a price excl VAT and another incl VAT, the "excl VAT" price is always pre-filled into the panel. I'd like to be able to set options so that it's always incl VAT selected.

Multi-region support half-way there Rated 3 out of 5 stars
As a Canadian working in the UK who travels frequently to the US, I have three Amazon accounts. (.ca, .co.uk, .com). Unfortunately, it means I'm forced to have three Amazon wishlists, one per regional site.
Positives with the new version of the button:
- Allowing me to choose a default site for my wishlist is way better than having a US-only version of the button.
- Why limit to only one?
- This means I still have to maintain another wishlist for my family in Canada, or my personal use in the UK.
Suggestion for v1.8: Allow a selection of checkboxes that will simultaneously post to wishlists in other regions.
Or better yet, offer a single, synchronized wishlist across multiple regional accounts....I'm only one person, it would be great if my interactions with Amazon could represent that!
Updated review: Works now - had to manually add button to toolbar Rated 4 out of 5 stars
UPDATED Review: Simply had to add the button manually. Installing and enabling the add-on did not result in the button being placed anywhere. Perhaps due to another add-on or something. Anyway - I decided I may as well see if the button was properly added to the "View->Customize Toolbar" menu items list. It was, and I simply dragged it on to a toolbar. Tested it a bit - it's not quite perfect at this point, but the particulars belong in the appropriate forum and/or bugzilla. Main thing is, basically - it works, and it's pretty cool.
When adding an item from a non-Amazon website, it provides a "verify this action" dialog, rather than just shoving something in to the wishlist - a good validation feature and design. In this dialog, it shows the item name and price (thumbnail if avail, and L/R <- -> buttons to choose other thumbs/images from the page, if available, to associate with the new wishlist item), with an "Add to Wishlist" button next to it, so you can verify the action, update the description or name, and pick the thumbnail you want to show up in your wishlist. At the same time (prior to raising the verify dialog box), it checks Amazon's catalog for the same item(s), and if found, it shows Amazon's price (if available anyway) and a _second_ "Add to Wish List" button next to IT - providing the choice of adding Amazon's or the original vendor's item (link) to add to your wish list. In fact, it looks like you could choose to add item listings; in-effect deferring the buying choice to later, for yourself or perhaps friends/loved-ones, if you're sharing the wishlist with them).
Cool stuff - and it seems that the "also-offered-at-Amazon" look-up/query has an "HA" kind of connection/priority - there was scarcely any delay before I got the "This item is also offered by Amazon.. " notification. Impressive IMFAO. If you get this "we sell this too" message, you can open another tab or whatever (the dialog is, appropriately, not modal - nice), browse the item to verify it's the same, the price, etc.., and then return to the dialog and proceed to add one (or both, i think) to your wishlist. It did make a mistake on a "matching item", but it conveniently provides one other button (again, only if found at Amazon) for you to indicate, if you want to, that this was NOT a reasonable matching item (pretty cool). At first I thought the other vendor had a substantially better price, then realized that the Amazon price was for a bundle/package of TWO of the items. So, technically it was not really a match, in terms of a single purchase to add to your list/cart, and I flagged it as such.
(not quite apples/oranges, more like apple/apples, alol). Nuff said.
Anyway - this is pretty slick. I have a real love/hate with Amazon in general, and it's hard to reason the ambivalence and stay objective (Amazon rocks - but it's arguably bad for the U.S. economy; e.g. I loved visiting Borders). Anyway, enough diatribe. Lastly - I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer to drink single-malt scotch.
A cool add-on.
Original review was focused on the lack of the button showing up on the display. Deleted .. deprecated, whatever...

This add on was useless.. Nothing I supposedly added showed up on my Amazon Wish List. Silly me to actually trust this and not bookmark the pages.. Now time to back track on everything I lost.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Would Love to Help
Hello from Wish List. I'm sorry to hear about your frustrating experience (and for my delayed reply.) This add-on typically works great, and is a very popular way for our customers to keep track of everything in one place. Upon adding items we confirm the item add and provide a link to the Wish List it was added to. Sometimes things can go wrong when customers might not now that they have 2 accounts (2 password/e-mail combinations) or Wish Lists on multiple Amazon websites (we have retail sites in many different countries). This is just a guess though for your situation. If you would like individual help please find the feedback link found on our Wish from Any Website homepage: http://www.amazon.com/wishlist/universal. I hope this helps.
Privacy concern Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I would like this button, but after reading about Add to Wish List in the Google Chrome marketplace, I got a bit afeared. That marketplace said it tracks everything you do online. This would be good for more accurate recommendations, but I would like to know if I could turn this off before using it. Then I would give it four stars.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7).
Hello from Wish List. We actually look at your open tabs only at the time of install so we can ascertain which Amazon locale you are shopping from. This is the Amazon country we default your Wish List item adds to. I hope this helps.
Rated 2 out of 5 stars
It appears to mostly work only on large, established sites. I've been shopping for days and only about 10% of the product pages I viewed were indicated as being valid product pages. Sometimes I click on the image link on a page and it will allow me to add it from there, but that's useless, it's just a link to an image. There is also no way to customize the wishlist entry. You can't tell it what image to use, or in my case, it doesn't show any images.
I would like to be able to add items from my wishlist page using the product's url. At least that would be a workaround.
Also, at no point did it ever add a button on a product page, only the toolbar button (FF 6 and 7). That doesn't really bother me, it just doesn't work as advertised. Overall: disappointing.
Causes Text Box Freezing Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Suddenly over the last couple days, while using Firefox 6.0, whenever I was typing into a text box the cursor started freezing every few words or whenever I hit shift to start a new sentence.
Last night I spend some time scanning my computer for viruses and malware but found nothing and it was only this morning as I was almost completely unable to type due to frustration with the constant intermittent freezing did I test Internet Explorer to see if it had the same problem and when it didn't I decided to check my Firefox add-ons.
I noticed and remembered that I'd just installed the Amazon.com Wish List Button and now that I've disabled it the freezing has stopped.
functional and unobstrusive Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The button sits unobstrusively in any toolbar and shows a small (+) sign when the current page "looks like" a product page. When you click it, a movable dialog reminiscent of Facebook's "Like" feature is shown *within* the page (so it won't take the window hostage).
There you can change the item name and price (it tries to guess it from the page), pick a picture from the page, specify the wish list to add to, change the desired quantity and add a description before saving. Easy!
Just a simple button Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I like how it's *only* the button so Firefox is not cluttered with extra buttons I don't use. Easy to install and works great for adding non-Amazon items to my Wish List.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
