Disable WebRTC Indicator Overlay

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very cool. I created a screen recording addon, not yet released due to issues with upload. But it shows this rtc indicator. This allows us to turn it off. I'll link this addon from my addon as soon as it uploads. My addon is here for now - https://github.com/mozilla/addons/issues/145

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.3.11). 

Telegram™ Desktop

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On browser startup can you please make the panel init. Because right now it won't init till I click the toolbar button to open it once. So I miss messages and people call me and are like why aren't you replying. And I'm like shoot Im not getting any notifications on desktop.

NoSquint

Hi there NoSquint author, would you consider linking to GlobalZoom addon? I am maintaining that and people seem to say that it does what NoSquint does.

Thanks!

Hi there,
I saw your review on "Capture Fox" addon, from 2011. You recommended the author move to js-ctypes. I have started this. I am using DirectShow and COM. I got audio capture from mic and system down. Here is audio capture from mic - https://github.com/Noitidart/ostypes_playground/tree/13a19e2b8a484aea2a7c60038fa16a2826426a8f

If you install that addon, and talk into your mic, you will hear your voice in the speakers.

I was wondering if you would like to work with me on that addon? I can do all the porting, but I was having some difficulty understanding some of the code out there. My email is noitidart@gmail.com

Stay On Top

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely awesome! We need a hotkey, mac support, and linux support please! :)

The hotkey would be very useful, as right now, only windows with the toolbar button can be set to always on top. I have a need to set always on top chrome-less windows. (it doesnt have url bar or toolbar). Hotkey would do the trick here.

For instance I am trying to set always on top the "Browser Console" that opens with Ctrl + Shift + J

Capture Fox

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am currently working on recreating this in my free time, as a fun project.

I am addressing Windows platform first and am using DirectShow. I am making great progress as seen here - https://github.com/Noitidart/ostypes_playground/commits/audio-capture

If anyone is want to collaborate, especially on the Linux and Mac part, please let me know. I would really appreciate it. Even if you don't want to get involved in the js-ctypes, if you know the AVFoundation on Mac, or the method on Linux, if you can show me the code I can port it.

I know of the future of WebRTC however, I have seen many extensions in Google Chrome do this and they had to rely on binary components to get it perfect. This is why I'm going with js-ctypes approach.

Please email me at noitidart@gmail.com and I would love to work with you!

Five years later and this still runs perfectly!

Wow amazing work went into this addon. Very close attention to detail. The menus via customizableui.jsm are fantastic.

Drag-Select Link Text

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used to use "Select like a boss" addon - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/select-like-a-boss/reviews/ - but the they didn't have the threshold settings, or option to use a timed hold. This is excellent and I haved moved over to this addon now!

Config Descriptions

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Super nice idea, it would be nice if it can support all config keys. Maybe via a wiki like mozillazine has.

Copy Real Url

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for adding Yahoo support! Is it possible that you can get rid of the context menu item, and just replce the "Copy link location" functionality to do the "Copy real link"? It just seems an extra item to the menu is extra fluff. As when "copy link location" is now sitting there but is useless.

Your addon was recently discussed on reddit - https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/4jozcp/requesting_an_extension_that_copies_a_link_to/

Thanksf for this awesome addon! Looking forward to seeing this addon get more popular, and support more sites.

Phrase Highlighter

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Can you please make it pick up the word from selection, if I hold a hotkey or something. Similar to how this addon works - HiliteOnSelection - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hiliteonselection/

Profile Buttons

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I haven't tested this, but thanks for making this. I created the addon Profilist - and have linked to this addon from there because users have asked me about a button in the browser to access profiles, I don't have plans for that, so this is a great alternative (if it works).

Download Plan

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extremely extremely useful for watching my sports. I download my sports from share sites like uploaded.to and other things, and for free users they let you download once every 15minutes. And they always break up the video by quarter. So before I would watch one quarter and forget to come back to download the next quarter while I was watching. It was so annoying I gave up.

Now I download the 1st quarter, and then set up with this plan to download the 2nd 15min after 1st download finishes, and then 3rd after the 2nd finishes, and 4th. Now while I'm watching I don't have to keep in mind if my download finished and if the proper time is elapsed (that is a huge headache I can't enjoy the game). Thanks for this!

Wow this is kind of nice.

Annotating the Web

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Absolutely superb! Thank you for such an addon. WiredMarker is what I used to use, but that wasn't as sleek and slim as this addon. This one is highly performant. WiredMarker doesn't even work reliably anymore so i haven't been able to use it for a long long time.

Thanks for this highlighting addon which follows modern principles and uses the latest tech!
