My Reviews

InlineDisposition

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

As mentioned before, works mostly, but not always. It'd be nice if it would get fixed.

SimpleWebCapture

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The context menu item is in the right-click context menu

Web of Trust - WOT

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon, very useful, must have. Of course keep in mind the ratings are user submitted, but thats why the addon is so great.

All these mudslinging hate campaigns against this service just proves how efficient it is, makes the bad guys frustrated.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20130402).

Reported for breaking add-on policies:

"What the add-on's description doesn't say is that since version 1.3 (released on April 19th 2012) it has also sent - unencrypted - the full URL of sites visited using HTTPS, and sites viewed in Private Browsing mode, to a site called ip2info.org.

The user never realises that the data has been shared with a third-party, unless they use special tools to monitor what data is being sent from their computer.

SophosLabs researcher Xiaochuan Zhang examined the add-on, and observed the potential privacy breach in action. In the following example, he used Wireshark to view the network packets being sent and observed his request to visit a non-existent website "www.thisisapparentlyafakeservice.me" being shared with ip2info.org.

The full URL of every webpage visited is sent to the Germany-based ip2info.org website, using unencrypted connections.

In addition, the add-on has no warning that sites you visit might be disclosed, no privacy policy small print explaining its behaviour, and no apparent way to opt-out of the data-sharing."

TinEye Reverse Image Search

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Could be useful, but theres this addon that does the same and has nine more reverse search engines supported:

Ghostery

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Too many false positives, I noticed 4 on the first two days of using it. The devs were quick to fix them after notifying about it though. But still too bad quality control for my taste

The interface can be a little confusing as well.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.2). 

Movable Firefox Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I dont know what the user before me has injected into his veins, but this addon works with Fx13 perfectly, no problems.

TrackerBlock

Massive performance problems Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Found this addon to be the culprit of massive performance problems with Firefox, slowing Firefox startup a LOT, causing freezing every time loading Twitter and generally slowing browsing down.

Going to check Ghostery out if theres less problems with it.

BBCodeXtra

Thank you Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Real time saver, just what I was looking for!

Let's you "paint" text and quickly BBCode wrap it.

Awesome Screenshot Plus - Capture, Annotate & More

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Does it's job but still has a few "flaw"s worth mention:- Please add better PNG compression, currently it's not very efficient- I wonder why the 'Annotate Your Screenshot' -page, that shows up after taking a screenshot of a webpage showing you the screenshot and letting you edit it, has content over the internet such as 'http://readict.com/promotion/ff/script-for-AW.js' and 'https://ssl.google-analytics.com/ga.js'

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.1). 

Image Search Options

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Just simply a great extension.

Simple, but still powerful and does it's job well.

Thanks for it!
