"Wikidata for Firefox" is a browser extension that allows users to easily access information from Wikidata while browsing the web. Wikidata is a free, collaborative, multilingual knowledge base that can be read and edited by both humans and machines. It contains structured data that can be used to support Wikipedia and other Wikimedia Foundation projects, as well as external projects and initiatives.

The "Wikidata for Firefox" extension adds a button to your Firefox toolbar that, when clicked, displays a sidebar containing information from Wikidata related to the page you are currently viewing. This can include information about people, places, and things, as well as links to related Wikipedia articles and other resources.

The extension also allows users to edit Wikidata items directly from the sidebar, making it easy to contribute information and help improve the accuracy and completeness of the knowledge base.
Risk impact

Wikidata requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Wikidata if you trust the publisher.

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

Wikidata 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.
