- by Lymiss, 5 míonna ó shinRated 1 out of 5Been using Prolific for over a year now and the website is great. The extension for Firefox was fine and working well up until a couple of days ago. Firefox had an update that for some reason messed up my settings on the browser and I had to do a fresh install to fix everything. Since this, the extension is not updating and it shows "err" on the little icon. When you click on the refresh button, it won't refresh. I am missing out on studies because of this. Hopefully this can get fixed soon.

- by AshleyL, bliain ó shinRated 1 out of 5No longer seems to tell you if there are surveys available. You have to actually be on the website for it to tell you at all. So, there is absolutely no point in downloading this addon. Seriously. Don't waste your time with this.

Developer responseposted 3 bliain ó shinThere seems to be a conflict with Prolific's new authentication flow (or something). It appears are experiencing this issue even without Prolific Assistant (PA) installed but PA seems to make it worse. Prolific is working on a fix on their end (asap but its the holidays so it may be slower than that). I'm closely monitoring for any updates on this and will add any fixes on my end if required.
Edit: This issue has been fixed by the Prolific team.
