Get-Addons link & button

Unread postby takenp » Fri, 04 Aug 2017, 09:29

You know if I click Tools>>Add-on's
I see the Palemoon add-ons site big button. So I see a lot of text and links
and they are also useful. But I cant get into the the most appropriate place for such a button.

If you are not agree than just add at least above link into the current opening page 'cause it is really what most people need while clicking the button.

loving PaleMoon,
as the Puppy Linux that runs it perfectly

Add-ons are either Extensions, Themes or Language Packs. Assuming people are looking for only one of those three categories is rather presumptuous :)

From the main page of the Add-ons website, simply use the menu at the top to get to your desired type of Add-On.

Hello Moonchild,

I partly agree with @takenp, it seems logic to have a link to open the web extensions page from the Addon:Extensions Manager

But from Firefox also it is only possible to open the AMO page when the link of an extension points to the AMO page but most times it just points to an outdated personal page.

However, I suppose that you can modify how Addon:extensions Manager works in Palemoon, in the same way that you deployed the coloured circle feature that identifies the what browser is targeted. So in IMHO it would be great if:

  • Each extension besides the link configured by its developer, should offer a link to the extension page in AMO or Palemoon extensions page.
  • Each extension besides the target circle, displays another colour circle showing the source repository(AMO, Palemoon) for installed version . (though maybe it is not technically possible...)

Because when i see a new update, I like to read opinions, etc...then i have to find the page manually, and it is time consuming but also annoying for not experienced users.

What do you think? :idea:
