  • I've abandoned the Camelizer tool when they changed it to be a pop-up window that made browsing a pain. I'm happy to see the usefull charts back at the most logical place for them to be: at the bottom of the screen as a separate window, updating itself when you browse to a different product page. So no confusing pop-ups anymore, no annoying clicking-again-and-again-and-again to update, the tool does its job as it should, no problems. Highly recommend it!
  • Have been a user of Camelizer for years and find it very useful. However I cannot find the icon in any of the locations we can now specify. Have uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times but cannot get it to work. Any suggestions? I miss this very useful add on. Thanks
  • The developer had fallen behind for a bit as FF has changed their APIs. However, this version now works with FF23 and I've checked it with both Amazon and Newegg - it's good to have this add-on back. When browsing Amazon.com or Newegg.com, a brown icon shows up the in address bar, and clicking on the icon makes camelcamelcamel.com's information show up in a pop up window. Clicking outside the window makes it disappear.
  • Newest beta 2.3.1 works with FF23. Yay! Add "versions/" to the end of the current URL or Expand Version Information section at the bottom of this page, then click the "See complete version history" Link. Hopefully FF will release it for general download soon.
  • There's a new beta version, 2.3.1, available here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/the-camelizer-price-history-ch/versions/ .

    In addition to being compatible with 22.0, there are some great new features. But remember, it is a beta version so there may be some bugs remaining.
  • I'm in the habit of checking 'incompatible' add ons with each iteration of Firefox by simply disabling the compatibility flag. This can be done by manually editing lines in about:config (NOT RECOMMENDED) or using an addon called CheckCompatibility ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/checkcompatibility/ )

    Without the software compatibility flag, CamelCamelCamel works perfectly in 22. So it should be an easy matter for the authors to update it so that it works for everyone.

    Considering how often Firefox revisions cause addons to stop working, and considering how /small/ the developer team is for this addon that I find very useful, I can't in good conscience give them only one start out of five.
  • As an Amazon seller, I use the Camelizer add-on ALL the time. It is invaluable to my business. I check it for several critical markers that I use to make decisions on what products to source.

    It's sad to see that some people are so adverse to change that they rate it 1 star for the icon placement. I admit, it took me a minute to find it, but once I did, it works awesome!

    If the add-on comes up as incompatible, try @Gourd's suggestion and download this add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/checkcompatibility/ I had this problem and it worked for me once that add-on was installed.

    Thanks!
  • I contacted the author and told me of the change in location of the camel. It is in the address bar and Camelizer still works. I took off one star for lack of better warning of the change.
    I use Camerlizer often and like it very much.

    Current version (2.2.1) just doesn't work.1.6 rates 5 stars. I used it all the time. current version doesn't show up so I can't use it.I googled 1.6 and found a download so I am back using Camelizer.
  • I don't use the address bar, but 1.6 still works fine (so 3 stars)

    Hopefully 1.6 will keep on working.
  • This version (2.2.1) is a perfect example of what happens more and more with programs that achieve a certain degree of maturity.

    At a certain point, developpers, that constantly need to justify their salary, begin to degrade the product, because they loose sight of what the users actually expect from it!

    FYI, I don't want "nicer" or "trendier", I want FUNCTIONNAL!!!

    And that has been lost in this last verson.
    Previously, I only had to activate the plugin, and then I could easily navigate through Amazon, the relevant data would simply appear at every new page, without me having to do anything.

    Now, at every page, I need to go to this minuscule button, and click on it again and again.
    And it hides a portion of the web window...

    Do you ever test your application, NOT as a 5 year old kid, who likes nice shiny popping things on a screen, but as an adult who is actually trying to use a tool?

    Moreover, as this pop-up window is displayed with a fixed size, the timeline is not as easily readable as before...

    Therefore, pleaaaaaaaase give us back at least the option to display the app as before!
  • Got this, loved it for tracking prices on Amazon. With the latest update the developers did, it is effectively useless as an add-on; no functionality left in it, wish I never updated it. Only option left is for me to delete it and warn others against downloading it. Does not work, a waste of add-on space. Hopefully the developers will see their mistake and role things back to their previous version of Camelizer. Judging by their lack of response to previous like postings, I doubt they really care beyond getting their kickbacks from Amazon for purchases made by folks that have downloaded it. :(
    There is more functionality in the latest version than in any previous release! All we did was move the Camel button out of the add-on bar and into the address bar, where it only appears when you're on a supported retailer's site. This update also adds new chart options and other product look-up features.

    We also get no "kickbacks" from any retailer because of the Camelizer. If you choose to use our website, that's a different story, but the add-on itself contains no affiliate links.

    Please email me (dan at shup dot com) to discuss what has made the add-on "useless". If something is broken, we'll definitely try to fix it, but we feel the Chrome-like UI is much nicer than the previous version's interface.
  • I don't know what happened. Before there was a button on the addon bar. While I thought that was a bad spot for it, at least it was there. Now it's gone completely. I used to have a button I could drag onto the navigation bar when I chose customize. That button is now gone also. In other words, this addon removed all of it's interface and is completely non-interactive, which is the same as not having the addon at all. What in god's name were they thinking?
    We didn't remove the interface! The Camel button is now in the address bar when you visit supported retailer sites. We are planning on bringing the navigation bar button back, though. Hopefully you'll be willing to try the next version...
  • This used to be a nice add-on but the new "change" is a pain and not worth the using.
    See ya!
    What specifically about the change made the extension useless to you? We would appreciate more feedback on this.
  • I loved this addon until you removed the ability to display the info in the BOTTOM BAR!

    The cute little Chrome-style popup is a good addition, and I appreciate the added functionality that's included in the popup.

    Unfortunately, the removal of the bottom bar is a serious downgrade to this addon - user 'frg62' says it best:

    "And that has been lost in this last verson.
    Previously, I only had to activate the plugin, and then I could easily navigate through Amazon, the relevant data would simply appear at every new page, without me having to do anything.

    It's become clear that a large portion of your users found this very useful. Please give us an option to show the bottom bar!
  • Sorry but I absolutely Hate Camelizer in the address bar with the tiny flyout box. It was much better with the information at the bottom of the webpage, uninstalled
  • This was my favorite tool for a long time. The latest changes - Out of the add-on bar, limiting the width of the ccc window to the width of the navigation/address bar - have made this more difficult than necessary. At the very least, please make the width screen width again. My netbook can't see the whole screen.
    Please email me to discuss this! Contact info is on our site.
  • Version 2.2.1 doesn't take up space in the add-on bar or the tool bar anymore. Just pops up a little icon in the address bar when you're on a supported website, similar to the Chrome version of the extension.
  • I like this addon, and I use it all the time.

    I thought I would write this, because although it says under the download link, that it doesn't work with Firefox v. 11, I can confirm it works fine. So go ahead and download it.

    Remember to enable the status bar, or manually place the Camelizer icon along with the rest of icons.
  • First impression was very good. Service works fine. But, the Camel icon is so annoying. Probably it is a tech bug, but icon always appears itself in my status bar even i have deleted it !!!
  • If you are a regular user of CamelCamelCamel (or its related websites) then this handy tool can save you some cutting and pasting and make your price history lookups faster. Unfortunately, it could have been implemented a bit better on Firefox 4. By default, it enables your Add-ons bar at the bottom of the browser window, and if you disable it, it re-enables it when you restart Firefox. I don't like that, because I only use the Camelizer about once or twice a week. I mean, how often do you buy things from Amazon? Really. So even though I rarely use Camelizer, it wastes valuable screen space with the Add-ons bar every single time I use Firefox. Luckily, I discovered that this doesn't happen if you add the Camelizer button to your toolbar (at the top right of the Firefox window.) When the Camelizer toolbar button is visible, it works like a dream. Not too intrusive like before, but always there when you need it.
  • Never ceases to amaze me that people release a product and provide absolutely no instructions. Not a single syllable! I've been a user for a while of the CAMELCAMELCAMEL extension. Just installed the version for FF4, not a clue after 10 minutes how to activate the function. COME ON. If I can't access the features you don't receive an affiliate payment and we all lose. How about some instructions!
    The Camelizer works the same as it used to...Unfortunately, Firefox 4 hides the "addons bar" (which replaced the status bar) by default, so you have to toggle the that before it will appear. Or you can add our Camel icon to your toolbar, just like in previous versions.

    Hopefully this will help resolve your issues and earn us more than an angry one star. I've updated the add-on's listing to reflect this information.
  • Would -love- to see this working in FF4. I can do without most of my addon's (even though they all already work) but missing this one significantly. (And I also don't have a choice at work, as FF4 is the default by Corp. IT)
  • Doesn't work with Firefox 4.0. Will try to live with chrome for now.
  • This doesn't track Kindle price.
    We do track the Kindle's price. However, Amazon doesn't provide Kindle book pricing data. We would supply it if we could.
  • The CamelCamel makes price tracking easy, and it has saved me some money.
