I guess most people know about the movie web app site, which pulls videos from various sources.

Recently they added a request to download an extension to your browser, for optimal perfomance and better quality.

It is featured on the firefox android extensions site from Mozilla, it has a github page. What I read online is that it seems the extension wants access to everything you do in your browser, which seems kind of sketchy.

What do people here think about it? Anyone installed it and can say more?

Edit: thanks for all the comments, looks like less people knew about this than I thought.

    You may want to install the extension on a alternate profile of your browser https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-remove-switch-firefox-profiles , or use a fork (e.g. libre wolf) dedicated to using that website. I’d probably go with the latter because is less cumbersome. This way, your data or activities in the main browser/ profile is safe. That’s assuming the only issue is about privacy and regarding those permissions.
