Forecastfox

Ohodnotené 1 z 5 hviezdičiek

New version:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/forecastfox-fix-version/

History of Forecastfox:

This current add-on page you are reading is for "Forecastfox Weather", and it is actually the 2nd version, a fork of the original, which was simply called "Forecastfox", and it was abandoned many years ago.

Rather than contact the original author, Ensolis created Forecastfox Weather. Support was great for a while, but it too has become abandoned, several years ago now.

Rather than coordinate with Ensolis, the developer "Oleksandr" has taken and made yet another fork of this project and called it "Forecastfox (fix version)". Confusing, and annoying to have multiple forks, similarly named, 2 out of 3 defunct. I know. But Oleksandr has done an excellent job, and also has a version available for Chrome browsers.

The only problem now, is that Mozilla has gotten rid of the add-on bar, and gotten rid of XUL, so that the add-on bar can not ever be restored by add-ons in the future. Instead of a row of 9 icons showing me all weather conditions day and night for next 3 days, current weather, emergency alert and current radar, now I will only see one icon, stuck on the navigation bar, cluttering up my browsing, and located in a visually and hand straining area.

LastPass Password Manager

Ohodnotené 1 z 5 hviezdičiek

The Release version 3.3.2 is based on the XUL/Overlay API, with XPCOM binary files, which is deprecated, and being removed in a year or less.

The Development Channel version 4.1.32a is based on the SDK (with a few binary files, but mostly converted to JS), which is also deprecated and being removed at the same time as XUL.

If this company wishes to support LastPass on Firefox, they MUST convert to WebExtensions. If the WebExtensions API doesn't have the necessary hooks or functionality, then the LastPass developers MUST communicate with Mozilla, by asking on http://discourse.mozilla-community.org/ or filing bugs at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ or both. If they are serious about supporting Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Opera, or just about any serious browser on any serious platform, then they MUST convert to WebExtensions, because all the vendors have decided to focus on a common API, to reduce the cost of cross-platform development.

They are doing this specifically to benefit companies such as yours which develop complex and popular add-ons, and as such your word will carry weight when you request access to certain features in the API. Time to show some leadership skills and get things done.

And also, if you want any user to take you seriously or give you money for services, do whatever you need to do to fix your code and get it to pass review at AMO. You simply MUST NOT let it sit in "unreviewed" limbo or on dev channel. When users complain about the add-on causing system slow-downs, you MUST address these issues.

I used to use LastPass, but no longer. If LastPass wishes to remain in business, they MUST take appropriate ACTION. NOW.
