My Reviews

ZNotes

Good program, if you don't require the search function Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Organizing notes with this add on is nice, tagging is a great feature. unfortunately the search functionality, which I kinda think it essential, does not work. Perhaps in a future rev. giving 5 stars but uninstalling due to lack of search.

Xmarks Sync

An old favorite add-on slowly becoming unusable Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Update 6/24/14 . installed the update 4.3.2 and syncs are working again. kinda hard to find the update. will keep using and hope bugs are fixed with use on Firefox 30. Hopefully this will restore 5 star status again.
prior comment.
6/2/14 Today I've come to the conclusion that Xmarks is not working as well as I'd like and therefore I must uninstall it.
Over the course of many months I have accepted recurring failure to automatically sync, it works but requires a lot of hand holding to force overwriting local bookmarks. Lately it's creating duplicates even triplicates of saved bookmarks and I have reached a point of distrust that syncing is working or that links I really want are being saved to the cloud.

With the advent of Firefox 29 and auto sync of many things including bookmarks, I see no reason to keep a partially functional app. Good luck to you and hope you get your issues fixed, you've been a great tool while you lasted.

Thunderbird Conversations

good, but needs a few more features to be useable Rated 3 out of 5 stars

really needs to have most recent messages on top of the threads not on the bottom which requires looking more to read them. good idea, but not quite ready for everyday use. too frustrating. If you want to check out a program that does threading very well, look at Postbox email client.

Sidebar Bookmarks Search Plus

good job- FF needed this Rated 5 out of 5 stars

not an essential addon, but a no brainer great feature. Organizing bookmarks can be hard with hundreds of sites and folder trees. This helps me find a related bookmark so I can organize them easier and group them. apparently right clicking on the bookmark in search results shows the folder it's in. wasn't clear at first. Thank you. Now if only this could be incorporated in the default bookmark window such that selecting the bookmark when searched for also shows it's location. that would help, but this addon is the next best thing.
UPDATE:
it appears she has done just that and come up with Go Parent Folder add on which reveals the parent folder (by right click and select) within the default bookmarks window. thank you twice. and another add on Show Parent Folder as a column in the search results.

New Tab JumpStart

quite good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

have used a few other start page addons and I really like the intuitive and easy setup of this one. quick to add new shortcuts, and a surprise feature which is very useful... groups which can be seen and clicked quickly. thanks for thinking about the end user on this one. much better than the ultra complex and fancy new tab apps.

SearchReset

Thank you, well done Rated 5 out of 5 stars

simple and quick restore from those awful toolbar and browser home page and new tab programs installed without my knowledge.

Movable Firefox Button

simple, easy the way it should be Rated 5 out of 5 stars

removes the need to have the menu bar showing and the extra space at top of browser. so simple. I like it.

Customizable Shortcuts

good but can't use it Rated 3 out of 5 stars

probably good add on, but i cannot remove the built in shortcuts that I don't use. and there are not many free keys left that are easy to remember. also it does require a restart unlike the description says.

LastPass Password Manager

almost perfect- surprisingly high memory use. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

using lastpass for several years and love it. curious as to why Firefox 15 was using so much memory I discovered lastpass increases memory use by 40 to 60+ megabytes. perhaps the highest of my addons. not an issue if you have loads of ram. have to decide if this is a reason to switch to another program or not. still an excellent addon.

Hide Caption Titlebar Plus

great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

can't always tell if there will be an add-on for a minor irritation with Firefox, this one does the job. screen real estate is important so why have a quarter inch of unused space on the top of FF window. this little app fixes that by moving the menu bar up into unused space. cool and simple.

Print pages to Pdf

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

works well, tested a few similar extensions and this one was best. good job

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7.1). 

Web2PDF

almost good Rated 4 out of 5 stars

but doesn't print some pages. for example. several other "print to pdf" type add-ons print a facebook page. this one does not. it only prints the login screen. also curious that while capturing a page it seems to be accessing do.convertapi.com does this mean the image is sent there first?

Smart Folders For Single Account (restartless)

simple useful- worth trying it out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

updated review after developer added a better description and instructions (thank you). extension works pretty well and can potentially make organizing of emails better when using sub-folders. it essentially rolls-up emails in certain folders. would love to see it rollup non-smart folders. not sure if it's an essential add-on yet. will keep using it.

Theme Font & Size Changer

excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

first add-on with a bug yet still is so beneficial it's a must have. ability to change default fonts, sizes for folders, menus & toolbars, globally, great news for large screen monitors where the font is tiny. makes every day use much nicer. the bug? every time I change a font setting I get a pop up error. TypeError: window.opener.TabsInTitlebar is undefined. I click ok and it goes away. no biggy and who cares since it doesn't seem to bother anything. using WinXP

Print Edit

quick, many features, best tool for printing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent, at first was not sure till I saw the other options available when editing etc. now I just love it. well done.

Webpage Screenshot in Firefox (♥♥♥♥♥)

very good, but some issues Rated 4 out of 5 stars

good product but first print attempt did not do what I wanted. simple print with content at top of the page. all I could do was center it on the page. might be back but for now, makes it not all that useable.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.95). 

Readability

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

wow, what an awesome add-on. makes reading a pleasure again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9). 

Read Easily

not especially useful Rated 3 out of 5 stars

sorry, but this wasn't very useful. there are other better readability add ons. this just made things more confusing.

Print Image

Should be included as a default option Rated 4 out of 5 stars

firefox V7 lets you copy, view, and save an image but not print unless you view it first then print it. this saves a step or two. Probably useful if you frequently print images off the web. No hesitation in recommending this add on.
