Webcompat.com Reporter


The webcompat.com reporter extension adds a button which allows users to report issues with any site on the web.

Sometimes, sites have bugs or policies that prevent them from working well in every browser. The community at webcompat.com works to help web developers and site owners identify and fix such issues.

If something appears broken, but works in another browser, or if a site or app insists you install another browser this is likely a web compatibility issue that you can report with this add-on.

Privacy Information

Firefox Add-On

If you want to report a specific webpage, click on the extension and Firefox will open a new tab to report the issue to webcompat.com. Other than the information in your public report (see below), no other information is collected.

About Us

Webcompat.com allows you to report web compatibility issues though a simple webform. Volunteers view the reports, identify solutions, and share the reports and solutions with the website admins. For more details see our About page.
