A Firefox WebExtension to display Discord within the Firefox sidebar. This extension adds a new section to the sidebar which contains the Discord web app. It also adds a shortcut, and a button toggle within the toolbar.

How to use
  1. Toggle the sidebar by pressing Alt+Shift+6. This shortcut can be changed by going to Add-ons -> Discord in Sidebar -> Options.
  2. If you prefer buttons over shortcuts, there is a toolbar button you can press to toggle the sidebar.
How to Unlock Firefox Sidebar Width The sidebar's width is locked by default in Firefox. Unfortunately, the sidebar is very restrictive and I can only do so much to enhance the functionality of this extension. I put together a step-by-step guide on how to unlock it over at my blog. Disclaimer This Add-on is primarily for personal use; a personal project if you will. I'm just trying to use Discord on the Firefox sidebar. This add-on just launches their webapp in the sidebar. This extension is an independent project, has no relationship, and is not affiliated to Discord in any way.
User reviews
this is actually super useful especially if you like the idea of using opera but want to stick to firefox, the only problem is that the sizing mechanics need smoothing and more versatility and adjustability. right now too much of the screen is cropped off and it either needs to shrink to fit the view or else the window needs to be able to be stretched much farther to see it properly, it be ideal for both to happen but one or the other would fix it.

Risk impact

Discord in Sidebar is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Discord in Sidebar is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
