Is there anything I need to know when I install the extension?

Yes. If you have already created a RescueTime account make sure to tick the checkbox "I'm already using the full RescueTime application on this computer", and click on the Sign in to RescueTime button.

Enter the email address and password tied to your RescueTime account. Once the activation is complete you'll see a confirmation message. You can confirm that you are connected by following these steps:

1
Click Settings on the Firefox extension window.

2
At the bottom right side of the extension window, you should see a port number. This means that you are connected and ready to go.  

Can RescueTime tell me if I am not signed into the Firefox extension?

Yes. If you're logged out of the extension, you'll notice a red exclamation mark. You'll need to sign back into the application to continue recording browser details.
