  1. Hi, just a small, humble suggestion: after a page is shared via this extension, the pop-up window should immediately close when it is done.

    Otherwise, thank you for this extension. I needed to share a Reddit thread to Twitter in Mozilla Firefox web browser on my PC but the website, obviously a social media competitor to Twitter, did not have a way to share it directly there. I appreciate it very much.

  2. This extension is fantastic, it’s just what I needed!

    One feature it needs: it’s not aware of Firefox containers, or what container it’s in. If I click or right-click on “Share on Twitter” inside a container, it opens a tweet from the default container. This would make it even better and smoother.

    Thanks again 🙂
