This is a simple, open source extension which makes browsing TV Tropes *a lot* easier by showing you simple explanations of links on TV Tropes, without you having to leave the page you're browsing. This is done by displaying the laconic text, for pages which have them, in a popover on links linking to Tropes. 

This helps if you haven't happened to memorize every trope yet, or if you just want to know what trope a word is linking to, without leaving the page.

The popup works but it only ever displays "Loading...". I can't find a fix for it anywhere, so hopefully dev sees this.

Risk impact

Laconic Hover for TV Tropes requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

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

Laconic Hover for TV Tropes 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.
