Please make the new toolbar icon optional Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is a fantastic addon, but I have one gripe with the recent versions because they force you to have a PriceBlink toolbar icon which doesn't even seem to do anything other than adding the current item to a wishlist. Each time I remove the icon, it returns when I restart Firefox. This is not okay. I understand that modern browsers are moving away from having status bars and toward having addon icons in your toolbar (which, frankly, is an atrocious design philosophy to begin with, as you simply end up with a cluttered mess of icons taking away toolbar real estate which often only serve a single function, such as this new PB icon). However, I beg of you, please make this icon *optional*. Some of us have Firefox configured so that we have can continue to have a status bar with the lower-right corner designated for these types of icons. And even then, it should only be there if it's actually useful, which this new PB icon is not, I'm sorry to say. And it should *never*, *ever* be forced upon us. Thanks. Otherwise, this is one of those addons I simply cannot live without. Keep up the great work.
Edit: I couldn't find a reply link, so I'll respond to the developer here. I was trying to remove the icon the same way I'd remove any other, which is by right-clicking the toolbar, selecting customize, and dragging it off. Each time I'd restart Firefox, though, it would reappear, which led me to believe that it was a forced option. I found the navigation bar option and unchecked it, and it's gone now. Thank you for your prompt reply. I checked there before writing this review, but didn't see it. I'll go ahead and bump my review up from 4 stars to 5 stars, as this was honestly the only issue I had with the addon, and I apologize for the misunderstanding. Everything else about it is fantastic.
How are you removing the toolbar icon?
We appreciate your thorough feedback and that's certainly not how we intended for this feature to work. Do you mind letting us know how you're disabling the PriceBlink toolbar icon? We've added an option to remove this by going to your PriceBlink add-on preferences. This can normally be found by accessing Tools > Add-ons > PriceBlink > Preferences. There will be a preference near the bottom that says "Show in Navigation Bar". After unchecking this box it should remove the icon until you check it again. Please let us know if that's not the behavior you're seeing. Thanks!
