Useful app. Would be nice if one could click on the IP area to refresh it.

nice extension but it would be nice if the ip refresh on every page load

Excellent Extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've been using this extension for a long time and love it. There is one extra feature I would love you to add to your "to-do list" regarding the notification sound.

Some extensions include their own .wav file for sounds, which I like to replace with my own, and other extensions have the ability to specify a sound file to be played with notifications.

Either way, rather than just a "ding" system sound, I would really like you to consider allowing user-customisable sounds.

Regards,

Roger.

position cannot be moved in the extended-status-bar. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This Addon works fine and simple, but it's position cannot be moved in the extended-statusbar. Its stucked and messes with my no-theme-layout.
(here: ff31. maybe it's because the Addon is too old)

Add an add-on called "The Addon Bar" - everything goes back to normal!

Status Bar Is Gone Along With External IP Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since Mozilla has taken the status bar away with the last upgrade, I have lost my ability to use External IP and QuickProxy as well.

I'm not an expert and don't know anything about the latter problem, but if a user is behind a router, then the user is basically connecting through a LAN's device interface and when connecting to the Internet, then it's always connecting to the external world. Based on information recently read about this, the user's personal IP address will be his or her local address within the domestic or ... whatever LAN being used, while ISPs assign different external IP addresses every time a user reconnects to the ISP's server or servers. The local IP address remains constant, until manually changed, while the external IP address changes dynamically at the ISP end of the connection.

If, however, the person doesn't connect and reconnect to the Internet inbetween restarts of Firefox or any other Web app, then I guess the external IP address doesn't, or at least might not, change until the person reboots his or her PC, or, possibly, also when logging out of the OS account and logging back in without rebooting the PC.

Anyway, I thought that some of what I just wrote might possibly be the reason why megabob6666 kept being notified that his external IP address kept changing everytime he restarted Ffx.

I haven't yet tried this Ffx extension and am reading about it right now, but will rate it 4 of 5 stars since that's what the average user rating is so far with 42 reviews that were posted before this post was submitted.

Simple and just what is needed. Easy to copy IP for firewall adds, etc. Then popup window when IP changes, great!!!

Not as good as 0.9.9.5. After installing the 0.9.9.6 update on 5/20/11, it alerts me that my IP has changed every time I start the browser even though my IP has not changed. This started occurring right after I installed the update and has not remembered the very first change after I installed the update. In addition, even though I uncheck ALERT ME EVERY TIME MY IP CHANGES, it still alerts me anyway, and when I check to see if the alert is still unchecked, it is not, so there is no way to stop it from alerting me.

This plug-in causes problems with firefox 3.6.16 on ubuntu 10.04.1 (Lucid Lynx). For some reason my history stopped working (+ no back button option). External ip had been working fine for some time - not sure what changed. After checking Error Console: problem identified as External ip add-on. Removed and switched to world ip add-on. Problem solved.

the plugin is a very nice add-on, waiting for the new version which is compatible with firefox 4 RTM

Very nice add-on, I use it very long time now.
Thanx for your efforts.

Useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Two ideas:
1) how about letting the user customise the time it checks the IP.
2) an IP change counter.

Nice addon. 5 stars.

I really like the alert option. Although i wish there's an option to show the country's flag instead of the ip on status bar. And Thank You, for making this add-on.
