Version 1.2.2 32.4 kB Works with Firefox 25.0 and later

Version 1.2.2 (February 19, 2014)

- Fixed a bug introduced in v.1.2.0 where the local time zone was not being taken into account when switching to a new day. This primarily affected users outside of North and South America. This fixes issues where the ticker would reset to zero at the wrong time of day and where days were duplicated on the summary page. (Many thanks to a user from Taiwan for a very helpful bug report on this.)

- Upgraded to Add-on SDK 1.15 and built with the cfx command-line tool (now that the Add-on Builder has been deprecated). Since the SDK modules are now part of Firefox itself this add-on is now only 32.4k (down from 220.8k in the previous version, or a little under 15% of its former size).

- Ticker: slightly darkened the shade of the digits.

Version 1.2.1 220.8 kB Works with Firefox 19.0 and later

Version 1.2.1 (October 30, 2013)

- Fixes a bug in previous version 1.2.0 where in some cases data would not appear on the summary page if the add-on was upgraded from version 1.1.0

- Minor style changes to the ticker making it a bit lighter.

Version 1.2 220.8 kB Works with Firefox 19.0 and later

Version 1.2.0 (October 27, 2013)

- Summary page: for easier page navigation there are now headings for the Months, Weeks, and Days sections. An improved main menu now persists at the top of the browser window when scrolling. New links in the main menu auto-scroll to the Months, Weeks, and Days sections.

- Summary page: now summaries for only the past 8 days are shown in the "days" section to allow for quicker page loads. Clicking a button loads the rest of the days, on demand, when there are more than 8 days of data.

- Summary page: after expanding a summary table to show all the rows, clicking "Show Only First 10" automatically scrolls back to the top of the table.

- Summary page: now closed automatically if open when the add-on is uninstalled.

- Ticker: now 15% narrower so it takes up less horizontal space (formerly 80px wide, now 68px).

- Ticker: fixed a bug where the numbers in the ticker were not always vertically centered in Firefox for Windows.

- Various internal optimizations and general code refactoring. It now uses the Add-on SDK's new pageshow listener in the tabs module (instead of the previous low level API method). More efficient code for detecting and starting a new day. Data for past days is now stored in a javascript array (that's always sorted chronologically) instead of an object (that had to be sorted). Code to upgrade data formats from previous versions of Mind the Time is now only loaded if needed, then removed after being run once.

Version 1.1 218.5 kB Works with Firefox 20.0 and later

Version 1.1.0 (July 24, 2013)

- Improved whitelist code. Now websites entered in the whitelist do not need to include "http://" or "https://".

- The option to "only log time and not websites" is now found in the ticker drop-down menu with the other timer modes, as a "blue-dot" mode (before it was a preference).

- Internally it now uses the Add-on SDK's low-level APIs for detecting user activity and pageshow events (i.e. new page loads and back/forward button clicks). So it no longer uses a PageMod to attach content scripts to each page for this -- a big win for more efficient and robust code.

- Improved "new day" code that fixes a bug where Saturdays were not included in weekly summaries.

Version 1.0 217.6 kB Works with Firefox 20.0 and later

Version 1.0.0 (July 18, 2013)

- Now stores more than 10 times as much historical data. Previously 7 days, now 70 days.

- Summary page includes weekly summaries for the past 10 weeks and monthly summaries for the past 6 months. All weekly summary tables also include total time broken down by day.

- New two-column summary page layout lets you see more at once. You can easily compare the current day, week, or month with the previous day, week, or month, since they are displayed right next to each other. On smaller screens it automatically adjusts to one column instead. (Thanks to responsive design and CSS flexbox.)

- Now if a site has both http and https pages, these are logged as part of the same site. Previously they were logged separately.

- New option to only log the total time for each day so that websites and how much time was spent on each one is not logged.

- Ticker revised to make it more horizontally compact.

- Fixed a problem where watching a video on a webpage or parts of the browser chrome could temporarily "steal the focus" from the page so that the timing became less accurate.

- Lots of "under the hood" refactoring -- many improvements and optimizations to make everything run as lean and efficiently as possible. This included reworking the storage model to support storing more data. (i.e. now using Javascript objects instead of just arrays.)

- Thanks for the feedback and suggestions. Several of these improvements were suggested by users. Mind the Time could have easily gone to version 1.0 awhile back, but I think this version was worth the wait!

- White list feature. Enter a list of sites to prevent them from being logged and any time spent on them from being counted. This lets you exclude work-related sites, for example.

Version 0.4.6 158.7 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later

Version 0.4.6 (April 4, 2012)
- On summary page refresh (automatically or manually), now only data for today is refreshed, unless the day has changed since it was last refreshed. Much faster.
- Fixed a bug where a reminder message would sometimes appear as you were minimizing or deactivating the Firefox window. Now they only appear when Firefox is the active window.
- Added an explanatory message on the summary page to make it clear that everything was working after install (since the summary tables only appear after more than one full day has been logged).
- A few other minor improvements, optimizations, and better wording in UI.

Version 0.4.4 158.7 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later

Version 0.4.4 (March 29, 2012)
- Added "Daily Totals" table to summary page.
- Clicking on summary page option in the ticker menu will now take you to the summary page even if it is open in another window. (Rather than opening another instance of it.)
- Fixed a few minor bugs.

Version 0.4.3 157.7 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later

Version 0.4.3 (March 26, 2012)

- There are now 3 timer modes, indicated by a little dot next to the ticker.

- Black dot mode: timer on, pauses timing after a minute of inactivity (the default, works like version 0.3.0).

- Green dot mode: timer on, keeps timing despite inactivity. (works like version 0.2.1 and earlier. Good for watching videos.)

- Grey dot mode: timer off, no time or domains are logged.

- Clicking the ticker brings up a panel that lets you change the timer mode or go to the summary page. If the summary page is already open, it now takes you to that tab, otherwise it opens it in a new tab.

- Alerts! Now you can get an alert message that will appear after every X minutes that you have been browsing on a given day. You turn these on and set the frequency by going to the summary page and clicking the new Preferences link at the top which displays a new preferences section.

- If you leave the summary page open in a tab or app tab, when you return to it the data is now automatically updated. You can choose to refresh the data manually as in previous versions by clicking the Preferences link at the top of the summary page.

- On the summary page, after clicking "Show X More" table rows, you can now click "Show Only First 10" to only show ten rows again.

- Now there is no need to reload open pages or restart Firefox after installing or upgrading. Everything will just work upon installation.

Version 0.3.0 156.7 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later

Version 0.3.0 (March 20, 2012)

- Now it detects when the browser has been left idle, and stops logging time. Timing stops after about a minute of inactivity. Timing turns back on again when the mouse pointer moves inside the browser window, a key is pressed, or the page is scrolled.

- The ticker now indicates when time is being logged or not. When the timer is on the numbers are black, and when it turns off the numbers turn grey.

- When in private browsing mode the ticker always shows a grey "0:00 / 0:00" to indicate that no time or websites are being logged.

- The bar graphs on the summary page are now subtly demarcated in one hour units (like a ruler). They also wrap to another line when they become larger than 10 hours.

- On the summary page the weekly summary is now the second table shown (just after today), to make it easier to access.

- Note: after installing or upgrading to this version you will need to reload all open pages for everything to work properly. The easiest way to do this is to just restart Firefox.

Version 0.2.1 159.7 kB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later

Version 0.2.1 (March 13, 2012)
- Added support for private browsing. In private browsing mode no data is logged (neither domains nor time).

- Includes a combined summary of all data from the past week (the 7 days before today).
- Now shows only the top ten sites for each day at first, with click-to-show-all.
- Day switches over at 4am rather than midnight (for all the late-night surfers).
- The summary page is prettier, and now shows the names of the days of the week.
