Very nice project! However I noticed that the addon sometimes causes considerable CPU load (at least on my notebook, i7-6600U). So it might be helpful to add some options, to limit resource demand and bandwidth, or pause the crawling altogether.

While I would like to support the crawling effort to help with indexing, sometimes it is kind of annoying to have my network speed slowed down. It would be nice if there was a way to pause the crawling, whenever the user actually needs to browse or whatever :D

Risk impact

Mwmbl Web Crawler 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

Mwmbl Web Crawler 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.
