What is the "Messenger for WeChat™" add-on and how can I use it?
The idea behind this add-on is to provide an easier way to access the popular WeChat messenger. Normally you have to open the UI in a browser tab which usually distracts your current work. Using this application, access to the official application would be possible without the need to switch tabs. Note that this application only provide an easier way to access the official user interface of WeChat web, and does not interact nor collect any data from user.
Before using WeChat messenger, you need to take a look at the WeChat - Terms of Service documentation.
What is the meaning of the badge icon (Firefox only feature)?
The badge displays the total number of unread conversations you have in your list. This number is equivalent to the number shown in the title bar when web.wechat.com is loaded in a browser tab.
How can I activate the WeChat web after first installation
WeChat web can ONLY operate if you already have the official WeChat messenger on your cellphone. After the first installation, open the toolbar panel in Firefox or open the sandboxed window in Chrome from chrome://apps/ and wait for a QR code to be generated. Now open your WeChat client in your cellphone and click on the "+" button and select scan QR code. After the code is scanned, a confirmation is shown on your mobile set and by privileging the the client, all your conversations will be displayed in the desktop version.
