Location Guard

Extremely insidious and annoying, unlike before Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

This add-on worked well before. Recently though, it has started resetting the "fixed location" setting to "real location - medium approximation".

I tried to communicate my position to a locator, and they found my exact position.

On the whole
1) Approximation doesn't work any longer (or so it seems)
2) Fixed location works only for a while once is set, and then, without notice or apparent reason, the setting goes back to show real location.

This makes the add-on even dangerous, and it is very irresponsible to keep on the add-on repository this kind of app when it doesn't work flawlessly.

Note: this might well be a problem peculiar to my system

Video Downloader Prime

great. You may add... Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Well what you may add is, when different formats for a video are available, show resolution for each possible download in the download list.

The rest couldn't be better than it is.

Walnut2 for Firefox

Despite it's not easy for me, I made a donation Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Hello,

we find about add-ons, start with some enthusiasm trying many and many. After some time, we learn that add-ons, as a rule, don't work like Mozilla's own developed features.

Like all rules, though, there are exceptions.
Here we are: your Walnut themes are fantastic, esthetically (important), functionally (much more important than esthetics).
Firefox keeps being updated, and your add-ons keep working with no flaws.
You're a serious coder, and what's more remarkable, you really care for the users and their needs.

As soon as I have many tabs opened, a theme like yours becomes priceless.
And what about the main theme colour? Isn't it the most comfortable possible to the eyes?

Although I am very, and I mean very poor, I wanted to make a small donation, as it's some months I am using this theme as default, and I'll keep doing so (switching to others just for short time, for the sake of some variety).

You are doing something important, for at least a certain kind of Firefox user. Thanks.

Puzzle Bars

Great add-on developer Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Expect same quality than an extension by Mozilla, or maybe even better.

Beyond Australis

Great add-on developer. Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Your add-ons work like features provided by Mozilla themselves (as to reliability), but are oriented to the needs of more than average expert users.

Hope you can keep updating them and keep up your nice work.

What I don't understand is... take the URL bar auto-hide function: why doesn't Mozilla give this option to all their users?

I feel they are afraid giving some options may give users the impression of a "techy" browser and drive them away? Who knows!

Tabgruppen

thanks Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Thanks for

1) The excellent add-on. Hugely useful for me (I hope you can keep updating it, and even doing what Mozilla couldn't do to make it a today-standard add-on later)

2) The nice habit of replying to people's comments, helping with doubts and issues.

Tabgruppen

Excellent. Still, I have a curiosity Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I define this add-on "providential", as much as themes letting us use enjoy old Firefox layout.

I have a big curiosity though, about your comment: "I firmly believe this decision was not taken lightly, and it had only the best interest of the browser, and most of all its users, behind it. I created this add-on only to provide this functionality for those that still want it in their updated browser."

Even Mozilla help pages say it "will help" to have removed Tab Groups.

I wonder, how can it help to remove it, when it was a choice to use it or not? It's beyond me how it could harm the best interests of the browser too.

YouTube Enhancer Plus

Excellent. Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

This is excellent, and works like an add-on by Mozilla themselves or a Google app ;) — nothing is to be added to this I guess.

By the way, I refrained from making a donation since I wanted to send you $3 but you set a minimum of 5.

Location Guard

Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Intolerable issue

I recently updated your add-on, and what? All settings were reset to their default! :))

So that when a site asked if they could locate me and I accepted to have fun, they actually located my town :))))

even remembing to restore wanted settings after updates, having to do it would be inacceptable.

ludicrous isn't it

Adguard Werbeblocker

the best adblocker. Currently waiting for it to be reviewed by Mozilla before using it again. Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

hey! I see a warning telling me this add-on is not verified by Mozilla and could act maliciously! Why don't you let Mozilla verify it?

*see developer response*

That apart, this has been the best ad blocked I have tried and I have tried them all.

I think you should know anyway that even running a search for precisely "adguard adblocker" doesn't return your add-on in the results!

You should contact Mozilla about this I think, cause it makes your add-on "invisible" to people.

OneTab

Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

It works well when it works. Before or later you will lose your tab. No big issue for normal users. Absolutely unfit to be used professionally. Use inbuilt Tab Groups instead.

OneTab

thoughtful add-on Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I have tried if for 2 days, not enough time to grant this is a faultlessly reliable add-on.

What I can grant is it is a thoughtfully designed, very useful one.

System Monitor

Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

? Why use graphs instead of simple digits, like "5%"? :))
Looks like a silly choice, to me

Hide My Ass! IP Checker

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

The review giving 1 star lie :))

This apps does what it is said to do for free, and well (even its looks are sightly).
Then it offers a pro-grade VPN service, that comes for a fee, like ALL VPN services in the world (if you want them to work).

No lies, no cheating, and Mozilla should sometimes find the time to remove dishonest reviews.

LeechBlock

Very good; not perfect Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

As I see you follow users' feedback carefully, I want to let you know this.

1) I have tested this with 2 sites (Twitter, and adnkronos.com) and it looks to me that even without the *.sitename.com thing all pages from a site are blocked.

2) I have no idea why, but the URL ign.it directs to Adkronos site. And the block doesn't work (try it yourself). I think that it would be great if even this kind of "redirecting" would be impeded.

3) There's a review posted on July 16 that gives 1 star and says abrupt lies about this add-on. I think you should report the fact to Mozilla and have it removed.

Nautipolis for Firefox

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

After trying this theme again, I understood my own feelings towards it better.

It is, in one word, great: including the blocked/normal tab design, and, really, anything I can think of.

It probably means something about this theme that the developer reads all reviews promptly.

This is a retro theme, and it is great as a retro theme: you really feel 15-20 years ago aesthetically, while functionality is on par with Firefox's default theme (= the top of what's available). This is one of that shining 1-2% of themes that work as stably and consistently as Mozilla's own theme.

Now, if only you could make those search/URL bars a little larger.. to have larger characters.. it would be another step towards excellence I think (specially for those who use non-large displays). Of course I am aware this is a retro element too, and adds to visual consistency, but I'd sacrifice a wee of it in return for some comfort if I were you ;)

NASA Night Launch

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I love this theme. This is what real themes should be, not just a cute background image.

I am too poor, thus I won't send the $5 that I would sincerely like to.

Jesus by Redbud

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Even to a non-believer, this looks astonishing. So while it's not greatly comfortable (nothing that is not dull/dark can be really comfortable) I still love it.

They Call Them Circles

Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Uncomfortable (like 85% of your themes) but goes in the "too beautiful to get less than 4 stars) category ;)
