#93 Suggestions for the Firefox About this extension page from UX review
Opened a year ago by polcak. Modified a year ago

The JShelter UX review (https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/js-shield/2023-01/pdfCi7H0vUsN_.pdf) suggests that we change the Firefox About this extension page:

[ ] Simplify the language and sentence structure on this page. This should be done if conformance with possible changes in AMO description in https://pagure.io/JShelter/webextension/issue/91
[ ] Add a bullet list of features + benefits and put it between “What is JShelter” and “How
does it work?” This should be done if conformance with possible changes in AMO description in https://pagure.io/JShelter/webextension/issue/91
[ ] Assume people won't go to the FAQ to find out whether they want it or not. What else
must they know here? Copy that or deep link to the FAQ from this page. A note from Libor: I like not to duplicate texts otherwise we risk that future changes will not be in sync.
[ ] Make relnotes understandable. These are fixes or new features, right? Start with
“Fixed:” and/or “New feature:”. Consider linking to the relnotes so you have room for
more explanations. See DDG’s page for contrast.
[ ] Developer comments: Add Support email or form to this. Libor's note: This likely refers to https://addons.mozilla.org/cs/firefox/addon/javascript-restrictor/, I do not see the comment in my Firefox
[ ] Add Privacy Policy link – This extension wants access to everything, so reassure
people prominently about your own data collection practices.
[ ] Add social proof – You have backing from FSF and at least one famous developer. Use
those associations to instill confidence. This social proof should also be in the FAQ
under “Why should you trust us?”
[ ] Reassure people that your extension adds value over others they might use, explain
that yours plays nice with theirs, and list the ones you recommend to use together, here
or via a link, in the FAQ. Libor's note: we already have these in the FAQ. Do we want to make these more visible?
[ ] Make sure your tool doesn't break PayPal, reCaptcha, and YouTube, as reviewers
stated that it does. Add to FAQ and site-specific info in the extension, if needed.
Consider ways to make user decisions about settings for these sites a lot simpler. Libor's note: Developper needed
[ ] Ensure that answers to these questions are in the FAQ:

Note from Libor: That page is likely created from the AMO listing https://addons.mozilla.org/cs/firefox/addon/javascript-restrictor/
