FAQ; GET ToDoist for FIREFOX (work-around for the old addon) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For everyone struggling with the outdated (+2 yr) "official" addon, I have 2 ways around this issue!

Here are the 2 ways, choose which option you prefer (#2 is my Favorite option):
1. Bookmarklet
- This option allows you to open a mini-Todoist pop-up menu wherever you are by simply clicking on a custom Bookmark

2. Custom Button Add-on
- This allows you to create a button for your toolbar (and assign a shortcut) to the bookmarklet option


To do #1,
1. Create a new bookmark. In the "Location" field paste the following:

javascript:%20(function()%20{%20var%20doc%20=%20top.document;%20if(top.js%20&&%20top.js.document)%20doc%20=%20top.js.document;%20var%20script%20=%20doc.createElement('script');%20doc.todoist_script%20=%20script;%20script.type%20=%20'text/javascript';%20script.src%20=%20'http://todoist.com/anywhere/getJavaScript';%20doc.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(script);%20})();%20void(0);

2. (OPTIONAL) For this bookmarklet to work on GMAIL, read Step #5 below. It may work on gmail however, without this step.


To do #2,
1. Install Custom Buttons, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/custom-buttons/?src=dp-dl-oftenusedwith

2. Right click on your toolbar and select "Add new Button..."

3. Replace the text in the "code" window with the following,

loadURI ("javascript:%20(function()%20{%20var%20doc%20=%20top.document;%20if(top.js%20&&%20top.js.document)%20doc%20=%20top.js.document;%20var%20script%20=%20doc.createElement('script');%20doc.todoist_script%20=%20script;%20script.type%20=%20'text/javascript';%20script.src%20=%20'https://todoist.com/anywhere/getJavaScript';%20doc.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(script);%20})();%20void(0);");

4. Under the "button settings" tab, set your own shortcut and have it override the previous function. I use Ctrl+Shift+Y (you can use anything as long as it doesn't interfere with something important like ctrl+v or something)

5. (OPTIONAL) Like the bookmarklet, This new button will work on most web-pages but some (Most notably gmail) do not allow this code to run because Todoist hasn't updated their Bookmarklet code (the code we are pasting) to https security.
So, we need to disable a new security feature of firefox (it was added in FF version 35 iirc). NOTE: I don't know if this is recommended but I looked around and it seems like it's not a "huge" deal if you disable this security check. You can read about the error here, http://superuser.com/questions/586063/how-to-disable-csp-in-firefox-for-just-bookmarklets

> Do this at your OWN RISK: in the url bar, go to "about:config" (without quotations), and search "security.csp.enable"
> Toggle this option from True-> False

It took me a while to find this stuff out, but the app works like a charm now! It's really sad that ToDoist no longer supports FF. It is easily the most beautiful task manager out there, but if they don't go back to their roots some other app will come around and take this place *cough gtasks couch*

BROKEN ADD-ON, DO NOT INSTALL

I should have listened to the previous reviews... Installing the Todoist Firefox add-on removed all my toolbar buttons, and I had to add them all again by hand. This is absolutely not an acceptable behavior for an add-on.

DO NOT INSTALL, it will break bad your firefox setup Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This addon is from August 2013, I am one that tried it without read the warnings in reviews, and it broken my firefox setup badly... had to build a new firefox profile (at least I can save the session and bookmarks)
Please, at right you have Report Abuse link... report it!
This addon should be unpublished ASAP

Do not install this extension Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add-on breaks Firefox 35.0.1 badly. First, it removes all your toolbar buttons. Then, it makes Ctrl-click open new windows, instead of new tabs. Who knows what other preferences it changed without asking, but it made Firefox unusable for me.

This demonstrates Firefox's broken extension security model, because extensions can do whatever they want.

I regret becoming a premium customer of Todoist six months ago. Their Android app and Gmail intergration looked so promising, but I have also experienced problems today with their other plugin (the Gmail addon), and with their website (which inexplicably rendered in Chinese).

Todoist needs to sort out its development team. Until it does, avoid this extension like the plague.

Installed it today. Works like a bookmark or history bar. Unobtrusive and on the side of the browser.
No installation issues and it is a natural place to work from. Thumbs up!

Resets Toolbar on Install - Fantastic Extension Otherwise Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I love this extension, but it resets your toolbar layout when you install it. Actually, worse than resetting the layout, it simply removes all buttons, inlcuding the default set.

I would rate 5 stars if not for this unfortunate installation error.

The Best Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Without doubt this is the best app for To-Do list and Task Manager

Rendered my Firefox virtually unusable. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Same to me! Even the address bar (for entering an URL) and the bookmark bar was gone, plus nearly every customization on the user interface. I should have read the warnings before!! However, I didn't need to set up Firefox completely from scratch. Instead I recovered as follows: First I removed this add on. Then I restarted Firefox in safe mode. Then I exited Firefox and started it again normally. Now most of my settings are back. About have of the customizations on the user interface were restored. The other ones I could quickly do by hand (using the usual customization dialogue).

Unfortunatly I didn't heed the warnings below - and my Firefox is broken too! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

The search bar is gone and my other extensions are not visible on the interface. Never seen an extension do such a mess - this should be reported to Mozilla!

Untauglich Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Eigentlich dachte ich der Test von Todoist im Browser ist der schnellste. Falsch gedacht. Die Installation des Addons hat mir meine Konfiguration so zerschossen, dass nur ein komplettes Restore des Profils aus einem Backup geholfen hat.

Could not get this to work, presumably due to NoScript incompatibility. Also completely reset my addons location preferences, which was a pain to redo. Firefox Nightly 29.0a1.

Doesn't remember my password no matter how many times I enter it. When I do, it either does nothing or shows a progress animation that never stops.

Great solution for my To Dos! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like Todoist, it's comfortable and works pretty good, plus I can access it from any browser anywhere (tho I usualy use the FireFox addon!), they also have a desktop and mobile apps.Overall great service.

Tried out a 'lot' of todo apps and addons before settling for this one. Simple and quick.

Just What I was Looking For Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, nested, and it updates across platforms (plus stores lists locally for offline use). I am loving the service and have found it a major productivity booster.

Looks Ok, but the reminder should not be a paid function which is the most basic feature of a todo apps.
