- от Rob, 10 месяцев назадОценено на 3 из 5Unfortunately Firefox Relay uses Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES). I despise Amazon and everything that they and Jeff Bezos stand for. Personally I do not do any business with Amazon and that includes Amazon AWS, and I wish that Firefox/Mozilla would find a better alternative for the core email service it is based on. Perhaps protonmail from Switzerland could provide this, which would be much better and ethically acceptable.
Regarding this add-on: The add-on works fine, but doesn't really add much useful functionality apart from being able to register an alias for relay addresses. The relay icon in any form field that accepts email is something that doesn't add anything for me, but it can be switched off. Instead of this add-on I prefer to use firefox lockwise for the usernames or email addreses and optionally the passwords.
Regarding Firefox Relay service: The number of 5 relay addresses is too little for my use case, also it would be good functionality that after switching off forwarding you'd be able to create a new relay address.
Some users have reported that some websites incorrectly assume these addresses to be temporary email. I believe this comes from the randomised hash in front of the @ sign. This could be circumvented by allowing manual entry of (part of) a username in a relay address.
- от livedehtfoeman, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Great idea, but txwo major flaws in the implementation:
- No way to quickly access existing / generate new email aliases from extension icon (it should display 1/ nb of aliases 2/ existing aliases 3/ generate new alias.)
- Relay icon on email fields clashes with password manager icon.
- от Пользователь Firefox 14873611, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Awesome, just one HUGE improvement suggestion. On the button to add a Relay email, add the option to select from the already created aliases. Having click on the extension, manage aliases, copy the wanted alias, then go back to the tab and paste it is unnecessarily complicated.
- от Пользователь Firefox 14066756, год назадОценено на 3 из 5relay.firefox.com fails DMARC on postfix MTA just like all other mails sent from firefox.com via amazonses service so this will only work for me until DMARC is enforced
- от Пользователь Firefox 13453342, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Great idea. However, the first email I've received through this service seems to have been garbled due to encoding problems?
https://postimg.cc/9rhPDJHvWe just deployed a new release which should fix this issue. If it does, can you let us know here? (And maybe update your review so other users will also know it's working?)
- от Yatt, год назадОценено на 3 из 5It would be great if whenever I click on the relay icon on the taskbar to display the list of aliases instead of clicking on the icon then clicking on manange my all aliases which will take me to a new tab just to copy my aliases.

Not a user yet but am very interested in this. Tnx (3 Star for Middle of the Road, Had to install to review, Had to rate to Review,,,I think. Thank you Again)
- от Ince Hamza, год назадОценено на 3 из 5I love it, but some bugs are really annoying.
It ruins lot of input fields, even basic website such as Google. I can't wait for improvement, really nice extension. :)
- от xeoth, год назадОценено на 3 из 5It used to work just fine, but now it stopped forwarding registration/email confirmation emails. Well, it says that it forwards them (the "Forwarded" field is incremented), but no emails arrive in my inbox. Surprisingly, pure-text emails from my other email addresses arrive normally.
Reply 1: I use ProtonMail. And yes, I did check spam and trash and every other folder - it's not there. Also, pure-text emails stopped getting forwarded too :(
- от Shubh, год назадОценено на 3 из 5When I click on the Taskbar Button of the Extension, it shows that 3 Step Guide to use the service but it would be Convinient if all the Aliases could show up on the Button Click and we could Copy, Delete, Forward/Stop Forward form there only. We'd not need to open the Separate Relay page to Copy/manage Aliases.
- от Пользователь Firefox 13619449, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Like others have said - I love the idea, but just doesn't work for enough sites that I want it for (mostly social media or adult-oriented websites).
Update - doesn't work with Flickr
- от zzz, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Was working perfectly the past two months until recently. No longer getting emails forwarded from the previous two weeks from any alias. Also does not work with Privacy.com
- от Cosmic_Annihilation, год назадОценено на 3 из 5This service is a great idea in principle and I hope it helps funding Firefox. But I already found sites that are blocking these alias email addresses, probably because it's too easy to simply block the relay.firefox.com domain. I'm not directly blaming Mozilla for this but hopefully new versions of the service will make it harder for sites to block the aliases.
- от tinytoast, год назадОценено на 3 из 5The idea of a relay junkmail with option to enable/disable redirection is excellent!
However, I find the addon and the user experience to be near useless.
BEST UX practice:
1. Click on email field, addon suggests to input relay address.
2. Click on any alias, it gets submitted to field. Nice and easy.
1. Click email field, addons says "You have X aliases left", only "Manage" button available;
2. Click Manage, get redirected to Mozilla sign in page;
3. Sign in to Mozilla;
4. Manually copy alias from the list;
5. Go back to page with email field;
6. Manually paste the alias.
- от Пользователь Firefox 13289131, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Great idea. Unfortunately, the beta refuses to safe preferences (specifically the setting to stop replacing all email fields on websites). This makes it difficult-to-impossible to log in to some sites.
- от Пользователь Firefox 16230687, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Love the idea here, but have a problem with encoded emails.
I receive emails in Hebrew, but the relayed emails appear Jibrish. I assume the relay does not work will for encoded languages.We just deployed a new release which should fix this issue. If it does, can you let us know here? (And maybe update your review so other users will also know it's working?)
- от Pit, год назадОценено на 3 из 5I wanted to try to register to 9gag.com using relay and the address is blocked.
I really didn't want to write a review yet as I couldn't play with it enough, but this is the only way to contact you.
- от Tyler Regas, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Nice. I like the idea. I get the idea of having just a few while they're testing it, but I don't understand why the data on the site (i.e., your aliases) don't show up in the add-on. All we get it this crummy features slider and no way to turn it off or even make the tool usable, aside from trying to jam that huge logo into a small text field. I look forward to simple improvements.
- от Tom, год назадОценено на 3 из 5I can't enter text in the email field on this page when the extension is installed. Apparently reviews are the only way to send feedback like this? https://public.viavid.com/player/index.php?id=140568
- от jaxx, год назадОценено на 3 из 5relay icon next to email field is in the tab navigation order between login and password field on some sites. Sadly this breaks my password manager. Please consider to rework this behavior.
Thx for the reply, I'm using Keepass 2.x But it should be the same with every password manager which uses Keyboard emulation.
- от Ryan, год назадОценено на 3 из 5I _want_ to like this, but there are some issues. In order for this service to be more useful than anonaddy, it needs to have the ability to create unlimited aliases with labels so that you can identify which are which.
Use Case: Using a different alias for each website so that you know which site leaked your email to other sites.
Being able to create an alias straight from the extension would be great as well. This would allow me to create an email alias with the firefox relay extension and the password with the lastpass extension. This pair would be a match made in heaven.
The ability to reply to emails that originated from Firefox Relay would also be a nice feature.
I'll be keeping an eye on this for future improvements. It definitely has potential.
- от p6, год назадОценено на 3 из 5Nov 1st, 2020;
Without the ability to reply using the Firefox relay alias, the very purpose to use Relay is moot!
I contacted a car dealership using one of my aliases. However, I had to reply using my own personal email, which got captured by the dealership, and I am now permanently entered in his distribution list.
So, what is the point?
I would like to have the option to create my own prefix email, using the @relay.firefox.com. Without the limitation of 5 aliases.
In this manner, I can control which email is being spammed, example:
I create an account with a new entity; I create the specific alias:
If I start to receive junk mail from "newentity", then I delete the alias.
I have done that for many years, unfortunately, it means that I need to create a new email address each time I enroll, which means my computer currently reads tens of email addresses.
So you should give the option to the user to create his own alias, and remove the limit of 5.
Edit on July 31st, 2020:
To avoid collisions, or similar prefixes, you can always have a validation running at creation time; I also add a string to make my alias unique, such as the date at which I create it:
This has two benefits: I can organize my email aliases list in chronological order, increasing or decreasing, and I always keep track of the date at which I created the alias.Thanks for the feedback. Creating custom local parts will definitely lead to collisions in the future, so we have an issue filed to support "catch-all" subdomains for aliases: https://github.com/mozilla/fx-private-relay/issues/55
E.g., you could make up any alias you want like email@example.com.
