Not to my knowledge. It uses online tools like Google Docs and Zoho viewer to view files embedded in web pages. It's been around a few years that I know of and has been written up at various reputable tech sites. I would think if there was an issue it would surface in several places, in particular the reviews on the browser add-on/extension download page.

Hi, Rhiannon,

Thanks for the tip. It might be handy in an emergency if I'm using a VPN (e.g., in Opera), but if the extension is using Google Docs to open documents, I'm afraid I'll have to pass. Google has demonstrated an insatiable appetite for gathering every conceivable scrap of information from those who use any of its services and I value my privacy way too much. It's hard to avoid using absolutely everything Google, given the tentacles it has spread into the online world, but I'm sure as heck not going to surrender any info to Google knowingly if I have any alternative, and in the case of opening these documents, I do.

That issue aside, many thanks for all your hard work and the many finds you share on this site. I really appreciate everything that you and the other Gizmo contributors do to make this site so excellent.

I understand what you mean about privacy and the lack thereof with Google, Facebook and others.

The add-on doesn't use Google Docs itself, or Zoho services itself, or other third party services, rather, it leverages the API's for those services to make files viewable in a browser window (Zoho viewer API, Google viewer API etc.).
API's (application program interface) are software to software interfaces, not a UI's (user interfaces).

From what I understand, files are opened independently of the Google Docs UI (User Interface) itself - that is, nothing is opened using Google Docs or any of Zoho's services. 
You need a Google account to use Google Docs and an account with Zoho to view files in their services.
The file viewer opens embedded files whether you have an account or not in any browser I've tried it on.

I don't know enough about coding or API's to say definitively one way another whether those API's can track what document or file embedded in a web page is being viewed or the content of that document or file.
Maybe someone else here knows?

I think it's absurd that this many document formats exist and although browser addons can be useful, they affect your browser effectiveness so you have to restrict yourself to just the most essential ones.

LOL define essential. :)
I do so much of my work in a browser that my list of "essential" Firefox add-ons is 17.
Less in other browsers because they don't have equivalent extensions with the same functionality.
There are some add-ons I don't use in Firefox because they interfere with performance, and have consistently done so over a period of years.

I relied on Firefox for over a decade because of the excellent versatility that it's add-ons provided. Had to abandon that browser about 2 years ago because many started to hang on my system (Windows 7). If your running 17 without issues I assume you have a more recent OS. I currently limit myself to 4 on Chrome.

Hi, Rhiannon,

You said that "There are some add-ons I don't use in Firefox because they interfere with performance, and have consistently done so over a period of years." For those of us who find the function of Firefox to be degenerating and problematic at times, it would be great if you could provide the names of the FF add-ons on your "blacklist," as such a list might help us to troubleshoot our own FF issues. Perhaps an idea for another post? ;-)

Cheers

Two I've had consistent issues with over the years that are still in the Firefox add-on site are Ghostery and WOT. Most people don't have any issues with either of them so I'm not sure how useful a list would be because much depends on what add-ons you have installed and browser configuration. I normally make changes to the Firefox "about:config" settings too. They are both good add-ons and both work fine in in Chrome based browsers for me.

Wow! I certainly understand the value of a fresh installation, but given Firefox's breakneck pace of updates, you must be reinstalling FF about once every week or so! Do you likewise reinstall all your add-ons? If so, I probably wouldn't get all of my add-ons reinstalled before the next FF update came along and I'd have to start all over again. :)

Would you please clarify that comment?

The page where the program is downloaded from says its free for Windows and Mac. I downloaded the program and tested it extensively on two different computers with two versions of Windows before writing it up. There were no upgrade or sales prompts, it wasn't a program that has basic features for free with more features with a paid upgrade. If you had a different experience downloading, installing and using the program it would be helpful to know about it.

FontLab has paid programs, but the app that I downloaded and tested is a small app they offer for free. I would add that the program is available as at some of download sites like cnet, where it's listed as free, and is reviewed favorably on several sites. There's a YouTube tutorial on how to use it with Cricut, if you're a crafter and use die cut machines.

The only problem I see with "DaVinci Resolve" is that it's not compatible with "XP" or "7"; only "8" and "10". I currently use "XP" and plan on upgrading to "7" at the earliest opportunity. I am not a fan of "8" or "10" and so I will have to default to "VirtualDub" and use "Davinci Resolve" on my wife's Windows 10 machine. She had "7", but let it upgrade to "10" against my advice.

I have only problem with seeding. Downloading/Leeching works without any problem, but when I want to seed a torrent with maximum/unlimited upload speed, it fails. It works with lower speeds but I want to use at least 95% of my maximum upload rate for it. Because it's a big sized torrent and needs good seeding.

I heard using specialized VPNs for BitTorrent communications will solve that. My friend recommended seedboxes to me. Are they useful?

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 8 months ago Timbo

The article is interesting but sadly having followed the DHT suggestion above it has caused huge problems to my Vuze installation (MBP - OSX 10.8.5). I had already sorted Port Direction on my router (Draytek 2820) and thought loading the Mainline DHT plug-in might improve download speeds further. Big mistake. After downloading and re-starting, all my downloading torrents are stuck on Queued. No smileys of any colour. The uploads are happily uploading on green smileys. I used the Open Port Check Tool to test the DHT-nominated port 49001 and I find it is blocked. So a swift uninstall of Mainline DHT. The problem is that it hasn't fixed the Queuing so I have no downloads. Big mess.

view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 8 months ago mr6n8 This plugin should have no affect on Queueing and I have not heard of anyone having such an issue. The queue issue probably is coincidental to your install. All this plugin does is allow your client to communicate with clients that use the uTorrent implementation of DHT. Vuze uses a different DHT specification. The vast majority of clients out there use the uTorrent DHT specification. All I can suggest as to the downloads is to check your settings at Azureus>Preferences>Queue (I believe that is how Mac loads options). Particularly the max downloads and max torrents settings. You might also disable the "don't start any new torrents when upload/download limit is reached" as this would queue downloads if the upload limit is reached on seeding torrents. http://wiki.vuze.com/w/UG_Options#Queue_options As to the port for Mainline DHT not being open, this would depend on how you originally set the rules for Vuze ports. If you set for a specific port in the router (as opposed to UPnP or Mac equivalent), then you would need to set a rule for the Mainline DHT port in the router. Same for the software firewall - if you set the exception for the port and not the program, then you would need to set the exception for this port. Steve view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 8 months ago Timbo

Firstly, thanks very much for a swift reply.

Your comments about the Vuze Queue settings were interesting. I had a look and discovered that the Max Simultaneous Downloads setting had switched itself (defaulted?) to 4. That explains why only 4 downloads were active at once. So I switched that figure up and many more are now running. Also your suggestion to uncheck the "Don't start any more torrents" etc box was a good one, I did that and speeds improved a little. So those all had an immediate effect - thank you. Overall, all the downloads are now back to actively downloading steadily on green although overall speed is at about 25% of normal, so there are still glitches to fix. In the Tracker Status column, half the downloads show OK and the other half show "OK (UDP Probe)".

On the UDP issue, it's more tricky. I switched UPnP off in Vuze and on the router. I set both TCP and UDP for port 56912 on the router, set both the Call and Data filters in the Draytek router firewall to "Disable" and in Connection in Vuze Preferences set TCP and UDP for 56912. I'm not sure what you mean by the Mainline DHT Port in the router, maybe it's called something else in a Draytek? Then when I do the Vuze NAT/Server Port test it passes TCP but fails UDP. Then when I do the Vuze Network Status test it passes TCP in & out and UDP out but fails UDP inbound.

Does asking TCP and UDP to share a port risk overloading it? Alternatively, is there a self-test feature or plug-in that will establish an open port on the router and thus allow me to enter that figure manually in the router & Vuze settings for UDP?

Now I'm reassured that the plug-in hasn't caused this (!) I'll try to reload it into Vuze.

Thanks for your assistance.

view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 8 months ago mr6n8 " I had a look and discovered that the Max Simultaneous Downloads setting had switched itself (defaulted?) to 4." That should not happen, but I have seen several issues with Vuze configurations and Macs lately as in, things are switching back to original default settings on their own. "although overall speed is at about 25% of normal" Have you tried the guide here on Optimizing Vuze for Speed? http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/optimizing-vuze-speed.htm " half show "OK (UDP Probe)"" That usually means the original trackers are down. As to the port issues, first on the Mainline DHT 49001 - this is a separate port that Vuze will use for this plugin, so a separate rule needs to bet set in your router for this port number (since you set rules for the TCP/UDP port and did not use UPnP - which is OK to do - just that you now need to set a rule for 49001 in the router) "Does asking TCP and UDP to share a port risk overloading it?" No. Having the two share a port is the usual setting for Vuze and all bittorrent clients. As to the UDP issue on 56912, that is trickier. Routers do not block outbound, only inbound. So I would suggest re-checking your rule for UDP and 56912 in the router. Other than UPnP (or NAT-PMP for Mac I believe), there is no automatic way to forward. You could try to reactive those in Vuze and the router and see if that resolves the UDP issue just above. Steve view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 8 months ago Timbo

Thanks for your further input.

More developments - I went in to the router and set an additional port 49001 for UDP. I then did the Vuze NAT-Firewall test and - surprise - both the TCP and UDP tested OK on port 56912. Maybe the UDP function needed a return loop via 49001 to make 56912 come alive.

I have re-loaded the mlDHT plug-in and re-launched Vuze. The box at the bottom shows "mlDHT" on its own, no IPv etc - is that right?

But the overriding problem is that speeds have now slowed down even more….. Downloads are mainly green but achingly slow. You kindly suggest visiting the "optimising-vuze-speed" page but that basically steers one through the NAT-Firewall test which now comes out OK. I also did the Vuze Network Status test which produces this result;
0 NAT devices found
No SOCKS proxy found
No HTTP proxy found
No explicit bind address set
Testing HTTP outbound
Test successful
Testing TCP outbound
Test successful
Testing UDP outbound
Test successful
Testing TCP port 56912 inbound
Test successful
Testing UDP port 56912 inbound
Sending outbound packet and waiting for reply probe (timeout=5000)
Sending completion event
Test successful

However, further down that test two fail lines appear;
Outbound connection fail: end of stream on socket read

and after the Outbound Leecher/Seed reports;
No incoming connections received, likely NAT problems

My current total throughput is about 22 kB/s and at full chat over the last few years I would consider 210 kB/s a normal. I have set upload speed on auto and it has settled at 10K. Is there any diagnostic function in Vuze that could help me shed light on the slow throughput?

Thanks again for your detailed consideration of this problem.

Tim

view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 8 months ago mr6n8 I would not use the auto speed (any one of them). I have found it to be bad for down speeds and not reliable. The second half of that guide (Adjusting Internal Settings) has information on the correct settings for your internet connection. That guide is going to be more accurate and effective. I would not pay much attention to the Network Status test as there has always been issues with that (though they were supposed to be fixed up mid 2013). If the main NAT/Firewall test is showing OK, then that is really all that should matter. EDIT: I forgot about the Mainline - yes they have changed the look for that and that is all you should see. However, after it has been active for 5-10minutes, you should see some big numbers for IPv4 when you hover over mIDHT with your curser(I am seeing 141 million right now) view

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 8 months ago Timbo

Brilliant - thanks to your sensible advice I'm now back to full speed, all green smileys on downloads and good balanced overall speed spread between each torrent.

I'm so glad you agree that the Vuze Auto-Speed settings are unreliable. I've never found them to work properly for years, on ADSL installations they auto-swallow way too much of the upload bandwidth, thereby compromising the available headroom for the re-send/confirm signals of the downloads. So the downloads end up slower than if one had set the speed oneself. I've set it manually at about one-third of my usual very best upload speed and it's just fine.

IMHO some of the Vuze-related info + set-up pages should be updated with clearer guidance. The Port Selection procedures (especially for Mac owners) should be clarified as the extra 49001 port also needed by UDP doesn't figure prominently.

The Mainline plug-in has bedded-in well. I'm seeing 47 million IPv4.

Many thanks again.

Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 6 months ago mr6n8 First off the way the plugin shows on the status bar has changed from when I first put up the guide. Now the information only shows when you hover over the mIDHT icon. (I have put up a new image). So, after your Vuze has been open for a while check those numbers by hovering. When I first went to check on my setup after your post, I was getting large numbers showing on the hover info, but I was also failing the UDP test on port 49001. I had to change the port for mIDHT, save and restart and then change back to 49001 and save and restart before I got a pass. You might try that and see if that resolves. If you are showing large numbers on the hover info, then I would not worry about the test. If you are still failing the test and getting no numbers after trying the above, then let me know about any software firewalls and routers/modems on your system. Steve view
Vuze Help: Installing The Mainline DHT Plugin 6 years 6 months ago narutoitachi

Thanks for the help!

I did what you've said and the UDP gives an "ok" result! But I've got a couple of things to clarify if it's okay (sorry if I've got multiple questions.) First is the incoming UDP listen port, what I did was I put a random number there but you said here that you've changed back to 49001 and saved it. So basically, 49001 must be the UDP port and not any random port between 49160-65534?

Second question is about the static IP. My router is Zyxel ZXV10 W300, with firmware version of W300V1.1.0a_ZRD_PH3. I went to NAT>Virtual Server and put two rule indeces, one for the random port number (TCP and UDP) and one for 49001 (UDP). But I was confused when I saw an option of start port number and end port number. What I did is I put the same value for the start port and end port number for both rule indices. Is it right?
