Risk impact

Reload PAC button requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

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

Reload PAC button has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

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.

Great plugin that does what it promises. Only one bug: It disables the ability to modify the current selection on the proxy dialog, so if you have selected another option but WPAD, it does reload WPAD settings.

Useful for me (for some reason my Firefox refuses to follow the system proxy settings as I get on and off the company VPN). However it breaks sometimes after new Firefox releases. Right now it's broken again on 78.4.0esr (64-bit).
