Geo

Opens useful sites for pages geographically marked with ICBM or geo.position META.

As the use of these meta elements has been niche, at best, I'm discontinuing future support for Firefox 4 and above.

My Reviews

Screen Reader Simulator

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very useful addition, should be made part of the default DevTools. Only quibble: currently it only works in Firefox Nightly, not stable (where you just get "undefined.SpeechSynthesisUtterance is not a constructor" errors). That should ideally be highlighted in the description.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7). 

Archived Link

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple, but very effective...and a bit of a life/sanity saver if you're involved in a lot of (appropriately configured, so that they do set the archived-at field) mailing lists and IRC discussions, to easily grab a direct link to something you want to discuss.

Provider for Google Calendar

Latest version seems fundamentally broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's always been a bit temperamental in the past, but the latest version simply seems to throw [Exception... "[xpconnect wrapped nsIURI]" nsresult: "0x804b000a (NS_ERROR_MALFORMED_URI)"errors now when trying to connect to Google Calendar via Lightning. It also seems to hang on startup, to the point where I had to start Thunderbird with the "-p" option and delete my working profile entirely to start afresh. Shame...

Colour Contrast Analyser

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

works as advertised. great stuff.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

Table Inspector

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

great

Zindus

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

just tried it out in order to sync thunderbird to google, and then google with my iphone3g...and so far, it all works like an absolute charm. amazing work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.8). 

Glossary of Terms

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i'd love it even more if it came up with the glossary as a non-modal popup, rather than injecting it into the document...but i'm nitpicking. great stuff.
