You disabled my Speed Dial [FVD] extension, and now that I can't open that extension in Firefox, I can't export my settings. I NEED to open it up so I can export the hundreds of web pages I had stored in it.

How can I get my export TODAY???

Hi

The background to this can be seen at:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/blocked-addon/pavel.sherbakov@gmail.com/77.5.7/

Add-ons are developed and supported by their own developers who would be best placed to help you with your concerns.

Thank you Feudor888, but where do I find that file?

Hi Rich, sorry to hear you have this problem.

Some users with paid accounts (or who are willing to sign up for EverHelper @ $5/month for at least one month) are able to access the URLs in Chrome or Opera (and presumably in other supported browsers, maybe including Microsoft Edge).

Hopefully the community will come up with something simpler.

Hi

In 2020, we became aware that the developer of the FVD add-on had begun intercepting search queries that were being sent to a third-party search provider, in clear violation of the Mozilla Add-ons Policies. After a repeated violation we again explicitly told them under which circumstances this type of data collection is not acceptable. At the time, the developer disabled the feature, and we continued to host FVD Speed Dial.

Recently we have become aware that the developer has re-enabled the offending functionality, which remains in violation of AMO policy. In light of these repeated offenses, we have blocked this addon. While we regret the impact that this has had on some of our users, we believe that our commitments to user safety and the importance of user trust in Firefox and its surrounding ecosystem have obligated us to take this action, and we stand by this decision.

Seburo,

Perhaps in the future, you have the DECENCY to let your Firefox users be aware of the impending change so we can download our user data BEFORE you shut it off!!!!!

I figured it out on my own, without ANY assistance from Firefox!!

This was EXTREMELY upsetting, and I'll NEVER use Firefox again!!
