I discovered Smuuvr about two weeks ago and mostly loved it. The only thing annoying was the autoscroll being “on” by default. Yes, I know you can disable it, but I have to do for every single page all the time. I’d prefer it off by default, or better, a persistent toggle.
But that I could live with because of the other features and it’s free, “Hide Viewed videos” being the #1 feature I used it for. But now everything works *except* that. “Hide viewed” is not even listed any more. I do know Firefox just updated (yesterday?). Could that be the reason?January 26, 2022 at 2:33 pm #4041adminKeymaster
Hi thanks for your feedback.
An update was just published in the last few days. Can you test now and see if the hide watched is working? It seems like it’s working OK for me.
A lot was updated in this version, like Automatic video ad skip by default.
For scrolling, the options would be persistent on a per-website basis except when in Incognito mode, it gets cleared as soon as the browser closes. So, when you open an Incognito window, turn off scrollers right away, and it should stay off in all new tabs on that website until the browser is closed and reopened.
I will think about changing the default to off so that the UX is the other way around, but using wide-screen automatically turns off scrollers, and if you’re not looking at thumbs in the sidebar, why not go widescreen? Then they won’t be on anyway.
That said, we are working on an update that will provide an options panel where you can control the default. In that case you’ll be all set when that’s released, hopefully in the next 30 days, but maybe 60 days depending on how things go.
Note: Firefox is still a manual install/update. Chrome is automatic.January 28, 2022 at 3:08 am #4042
Thanks so much for the info. I’d since re-downloaded smuurv and the hide feature worked fine. It seemed it was not working before because my original zip must have become damaged. I’ll be dl’g the newest version after I end this reply.
Maybe I’m doing something wrong, but I still have to press “wide” on every page to stop the autoscroll, so it amounted to the same as toggling “autoscroll.” Regardless, I still love it and control over defaults will just make this a 10/10. Thank you for this addon!January 28, 2022 at 3:15 am #4043
