Works with FF57 and later.

With update to 57 you have to set your options again. Sorry.

  1. Bookmark your favourite webpage with fast-changing data (e.g. stocks) and put it on the Bookmarks Toolbar
  2. Use the Developer > Inspector to find out the unique selector of data you want to observe
  3. Install the add-on
  4. In the Add-on Manager go to the add-on's Options
  5. Set your preferences

Exemplary preferences SPAN[data-ticker-name="Nasdaq"][class="ticker-name-change"] > .posData

Awesome idea I wish I had a use for. As I also do not use the bookmarks toolbar I hope this can be implemented some other way as well at some point.
