My Reviews

YesScript

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Some of my favorite website forums have recently been using a JavaScript which changes selected text to HTML popup advertising links. Quite annoying to say the least. When scrolling the page, if the cursor touches the linked text and ad pops up.

Turning off JavaScript in Firefox (Options/Content/Enable JavaScript) works, but that disables all JavaScript in all pages all the time.

The solution is "YesScript." it allows you to disable JavaScript for individual websites as you choose by adding them to the blacklist in YesScript. It is simple, easy, non-intrusive, and user-selectable as to where the Add-on is enforced.

Fantastic Add-On! THANK YOU!

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

Customizable Shortcuts

Works As Advertised Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After installing this excellent shortcut, the location is in "Tools/Options/"and it is a new entry, the last icon at the top of the Options box. On the add-ons page where this resides, it states:
"About this Add-on.. After installing open the 'Preferences..'."
That was a bit confusing. Otherwise, it allowed me to reassign a keyboard shortcut so that my clipboard app worked as I wanted. THANK YOU!

All-in-One Sidebar

SHould be MANDATORY! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add on should be part of Firefox. It puts bookmarks, history, and downloads within easy reach. If asked, I am sure Karl Malden would have said, "Don't surf the web without it!"

Tab To Window

not working in 4.0 Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not working on 4.0. Possibly a conflict with other add-ons (guessing that it might be a conflict with ie Tab or an option in Tab Mix Plus)? It does install the File/.. options, but no right-click option on the tab I want to move to a new window.

Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate)

A must-have Add-On! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am an old-time Eudora user.. So long ago that I bought it off the shelf, in a box! I later upgraded to the freeware ad-supported version. When it was time to move on to Thunderbird recently I wanted to be sure that I imported all my older messages and such. I imported the early version files into the intermediate version, then imported that into the current 3.0.4 T'bird. As you can imagine there were a LOT of duplicate messages. Trying to organize messages by folders and years made it worse. I found "Remove Duplicate Messages (Alternate) 0.3.3" and it found well over 1,600 duplicate messages. Can you imagine how long it would take to deal with that manually? "RDM alt" did the job easily in minutes helping make migration to Thunderbird a lot easier. .
