My Reviews

LastPass Password Manager

Sure beats "P@ssword" on every site Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The most secure password is one you don't, and can't know. I works for me.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.72.0).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Show Parent Folder

Just what I was looking for Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice. Just what I was looking for. Works nicely with Go Parent Folder too.

If you install it and still don't see it, right-click at the top of the Bookmarks Library columns and tick the column name. Voila!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8). 

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I gave up on this and stuck with Xmarks. Every release seemed to break something and corrupt all my bookmarks. At least in Xmarks you can preview and then roll back to previous versions. I don't know if you can do that with this but I don't really care anymore. I gave it months to sort out and it never did.

Xmarks FTW

Xmarks Sync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Please pledge your support for xmarks at http://www.pledgebank.com/XmarksPremium to keep Xmarks alive.

Yes, useful applications need to be financially viable. I'd like it to be free too but the world is not my, or your, dole office. They need an income, just as you or I do.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant. This makes it so easy to manage and generate secure passwords that I can get to from any of my browsers and devices. It is a great replacement for managing passwords with Xmarks, Firefox sync etc.

Auto Context

Very handy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This replaces quite a few add-ons I can now ditch. It works well and the range of options are great. You can fine-tune it to your heart's content.

Greasemonkey

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Brilliant for adding functionality.

Not so brilliant for scripts that run away with the CPU. There really needs to be a task manager for Firefox to track down the scripts that are giving Firefox a bad name. For now you just have to try to close tabs until the CPU usage drops.

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I'm still not game to use it since it's scrambling and duplication efforts in the past. x-marks has been flawless and works on IE & Chrome too.

What "Settings" does it sync? They ought to spend a little more than 5 minutes documenting it if I'm going to be convinced.

The return of the icon is a 1/2-hearted effort - can haz right-click please?

Overall it still feels obscure & FUDdy. Maybe one day, eh?

FEBE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Have used it for years. Indispensible

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

WTF ?!?!?!

It just doubled my bookmarks, lost all the favicons. Can we go back to the Beta - that actually worked, This doesn't

Firefox Sync for Firefox 3.5/3.6

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Tabs from other computers doesn't work for me. I can see tabs from one computer but not another 3 that I also use with it. It used to but a recent update broke it. Otherwise it is great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.3). 

CheckPlaces

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works really well except that it won't grab favicons in v 3.6.3. Actually, I think that worked once (after I disabled favicon picker) but wouldn't do it again. Still, it is great at everything else it says it will do.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.1). 

Browser View

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

loved it in pre-3.6 but v 1.9 is not a valid install for 3.6

:(

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

Tab Scope

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome. Works as advertised. I have been using this for months & have hand no problems with it. A great partner for TabMix plus.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2.13). 

FEBE

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

FEBE always worked for me. It's on my Firefox essentials, up there with Tabmix + etc.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.3). 

FireFTP

It works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's basically all I use for FTP. Never had a problem with it. Nice 'n handy too, being integrated with Firefox. Cheers

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.97.1). 

Screengrab

It Works! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works well with most pages. missed a graphics on a flash page but I just used Alt- Print Screen for that.

Exactly what I was looking for

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.93). 

Video DownloadHelper

It works Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It works which is more than I can say for other extensions of this nature. It is also very intuitive. Like I said - it works.

Unlike another user, this does not seem to have affected bookmarks, widgets, the weather (although it is warmer today) or my driving but a federal election was announced when I installed it (true). No support ticket logged because this has not proven to be reproducible.

Thanks for writing this.
