Be on guard for FVD Media Inc.'s dirty tricks Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The latest version [v5.3.2] has a pop-up shortly after installation asking if you want FVD ads. Presumably if you answer 'yes' by mistake you get their ads as long as this add-on's installed, since it is not included in Options [where the other settings are configurable]. The Internet Explorer version of this add-on is a spyware-ridden piece of garbage, apparently pulled from CNet after multiple scathing customer reviews. Expect more dirty tricks with the Firefox version as time goes on.

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

Locator - locate on google map

Very handy but the 'set default location' needs work Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Very handy in spite of the 'set default location' feature needing work for some countries - Australia is not Austria!!

Webmail Ad Blocker

Works well with Firefox 8 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works perfectly with Firefox 8 and Hotmail. (IMHO installing the very latest Firefox is usually inadvisable as some add-ons probably haven't been fully tested with it; old versions of FF can be downloaded from

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.6.1-signed).

Movie Reviews Finder

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Displays movie reviews from select websites including IMDB, but *not* Pretty handy though! Thanks firehelper.


Does a good job and beats the competition Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works well with Firefox v3.6.2 after the maxVersion is changed. The only alternatives I found here, Highlighter v0.1.4 and Highlights v0.9.7.2, do not work with this more recent version of Firefox. So a great add-on!!! Thanks Simon :) ... and I hope you update it so those not geeky enough to fix the maxVersion can also enjoy it. Add a 'Donation' button and I'll happily chip in to help compensate you for your time.

There's an undocumented feature for highlighting all occurrences of test searched for on a webpage with Find, which is an added bonus.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.2). 

Acronym Finder

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A search using the excellent acronym definition website (I've been using it for years). Works perfectly, with the only advertisements being the inoffensively-presented line ads at the website.
