All good until... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
The addon seemed to be working just fine and I was excited to think that Mozilla will get some much needed data on process problems, but the addon is no longer working for Aurora 21 onwards. Whats the point of building the addon then? I can only hope they didn't update it cuz they integrated it into the built-in telemetry of firefox. In which case this one should be removed and the user notified.
Aurora please Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Can this be built to run on Aurora? I get constant delays when typing the smallest sentences.
Keeps adding the button back Rated 3 out of 5 stars
This is pretty useful, but I'm very annoyed by the fact that current versions seem to require their button being on the address bar. Each time I remove the button by customizing the toolbar, it comes back when I next restart Firefox. I've filed a Github back, but have had no response.
Hangs on viewing output. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Cleopatra hangs on assigning symbols to libraries and won't ever finish... :(
Is there a way to save the profiler to file from inside the browser?
RE: Hangs on viewing output.
There's an update coming that should fix this problem. It's awaiting AMO review.
Ignore this post. It applies to an unreleased version. . . . . . . Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Ignore this post. It applies to an unreleased version. . . . . . . Catastrophic failure when clicking Profile-Startup. Repeatable always. No FF crash indication. No crash submit window. FF 16.0.2. GP 1.9.11. Thanks for the addon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.8).
The profile startup feature is not released? Are you using the pre-released version from github? This feature hasn't ben released because it's not ready yet.
Fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been working on Gecko for many years. This is easily one of the best tools ever created for improving the quality of our software.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.8).
Promising but very user-unfriendly Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Ok, I've just tried this add-on and sadly I couldn't get it to work. I get a "Profiler: Running" text on the lower right of the screen and a popup menu if I click on that. The popup menu has several buttons, but so far none of them did anything useful.
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no support for this add-on, not a even a full description of its features.
However, it does seem to work on the developer's computer and from the screenshot this add-on looks very promising. I've been looking for a profiler add-on for Firefox ever since XUL Profiler became obsolete, and this is the first one I found that seems to have those features. So I really wanted to like it. Maybe it's my fault that it's not working on my PC, but without some sort of help manual I don't think I'll be able to decipher how it works.
Anyway, I'm giving it 3 stars because it looks promising and (I think) it's the only add-on that can currently profile Firefox
RE: Promising but very user-unfriendly
I've got an update coming as 1.9.8 that will fix this unfortunate regression. It's awaiting review. Meanwhile you could try the latest build off my github.
I'll be writing more documentation for this add-on soon. Right now you can take a look at:
