Works as claimed... Rated 3 out of 5 stars
...and this post isn't a complaint. For me this doesn't really save any clicks though. The other available 'Open in Chrome' add-on doesn't either.
What would be 100% handier: ability to open the current page/link/video in an Incognito tab of Chrome (Android). Possible?
miscategorized? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Developer's feedback to my first comment isn't helpful [and is borderline condescending]. This add-on is very clearly indicated on this site to work with Android.This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Nope. (Sorry.) Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Wish it weren't so: while this installed well, it produced nothing... no toolbar button, no other means of initiating an action. [Firefox 42.0.2 for Android 5]
Not working Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I have Firefox v42.0.2 on Android 5. This add-on installs but does nothing. Wish it would work!
thank you Emil Michalik Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Emil Michalik's instructions (below) worked. The add-on itself does not install into Firefox 33 android, from either the mobile or full version of the Add-ons site.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed). This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Thank you Emil Michalik Rated 2 out of 5 stars
My two-star rating is for the add-on. It doesn't install on Firefox 33 Android version. On the mobile version of the add-ons site it indicates it won't install. The full version of the site offers no obstacle to installing the add-on, but the install only seems to take place. No change actually occurs. Emil Michalik's post (above) to the rescue - it worked.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.1-signed).
Buggy. No point to something so unreliable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Two stars for being a good idea.But all the other icons that appear alongside the primary arrow make it confusing.And it's simply erratic. A third of the times the browser starts, this add-on simply does not function at all.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (126.96.36.199-signed).
Revised=== version 1.2 fixes one error, introduces another Rated 3 out of 5 stars
I used to rely on this. That theater thing is so-o-o awful!Now I can echo exactly what user MrEd has written: "Just within the last few days there was an update to something, Java I believe. This caused FF to start throwing out the error
"Error: Illegal operation on WrappedNative prototype object."
Fix? Quick? (P.S. I have FF 22.0.)
Post revised, 6July2013: Have been testing new version 1.2, linked by developer below. At first it seemed fine again. But now accessing a FB comment via the globe icon at the top of the FB page generates this other error:
"Error: document.body is null"
Thanks for working on it!
FF 22.0 killed this Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Just as the others have reported - not working now.
Plus - reminder - I still really dislike the blood-red toolbar button. Author promised to change it years ago.
Skip it. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I really wanted this to be great. Sorry – epic fail. The toolbar icon repeatedly vanished when the browser was relaunched, making the add-on useless. Truth: I have tried and/or kept hundreds of add-ons over the years, and this is a totally new and unwelcome trick!!
Also: the sound alert is pathetically quiet, Again: functionally useless. And there's no way for the user to alter or replace that sound.
So I switched to the regular (not restartless) add-on of similar title: that works just fine.

Nice, much more versatile than the alternative I had earlier. l was able to configure it to open an individual link (or a whole page) in the Incognito mode of Chrome, for instance.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (188.8.131.52-signed).
Good, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I like that it works very well, in Ffx 15.0.1. And I like a toolbar button for such things. It's just that the tooltip for this button is a little odd: "...(unless you have remapped the triggers)." Really? I'd rather not have any tooltip other than the add-on's name. Not this confusing text reminding me of the default triggers, which yes, I have changed as per the options.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (184.108.40.206-signed).
A big pest offering no benefit. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Annoying. Every click outbound from Facebook gets sidetracked and delayed while this thing checks it... then it invariably claims it couldn't, because the "server must be unavailable."
So I unchecked the Facebook option in the add-on. A day later the option had re-checked itself, i.e., refused to honor my choices: EPIC FAIL.
I uninstalled it, would rather rely on the non-annoying add-on LinkExtend and [Avast's plugin] WebRep.
Thanks for the 29July2012 fix for Firefox 15beta2 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Something had been interfering with my very favorite mouse gestures (I use FireGestures 1.6.16). This must have been it - now they are restored.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (220.127.116.11-signed).
Kidding, right? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
No email alerts ever arrived (during weeks of trial).
The little numbers "1:1" that got added to the toolbar indicated nothing as far as I could tell; no change in the web page in question caused any change in these numbers.
Worst: the clicked-open report window showed me items on pages I had never attached to AlertBox.
All I got was a system tray pop-up every few minutes (with accompanying sound) whether or not the indicated page really had changed.
The online 'support' is equally useless.
Sorry. No pass.
Extremely annoying! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
v0.2.8 has a bug, as noted in the review prior to mine: toolbar is always open. never retracts. Duh!!! In other words, the add-on has been rendered useless.
This passes muster as an 'update'?? Nobody tested it first?
Then the developer replies that the bug has been fixed in v.0.2.9 - which is not available here or on the homepage.
Sends 43,752 users on a wild goose chase. No integrity.
Meh. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Works, but half as much as claimed. Nothing whatsoever results from scrolling over the field - I refer to both the Search Bar and the Location Bar - but clicking the added icon does clear the field.
I tend to agree with the user who does not want any [tacked-on clear-by-scroll] feature you can't disable: very unwise change, considering the other functions of scrolling. I'd like to go back to v1.5.
handy Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Works well - opens the calendar in a new tab (as I wanted).
Especially welcome now that the ridiculous new Google Bar fails to include 'Calendar' as a first-tier navigation option.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Good idea, but this interfered with my habit of opening a second Gmail tab by middle-wheel-clicking on something in Gmail's list of labels (e.g., open "Sent Mail" in a new tab while keeping "Inbox" in the current tab). The additional tab appeared but stayed blank.
As soon as I disabled Google Disconnect, my habitual process worked fine again, immediately.
So sorry, but that makes the add-on 100% unusable for me.
