My Reviews

Advanced bookmaks Add-on

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's very nice. It would be even better, if we could add a shortcut button or move it up in the bookmarks menu.

Addons in Urlbar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.

RSS Ticker

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Brilliant! The enable/disable feature is absolutely great (it took me a couple of minutes to figure out that I can use it by adding a button on the addon bar)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (12). 

Piboard

not working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great idea but not working on firefox 20.0 (ubuntu 12.10)

Send and Archive

Nice Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Great idea, should be Thunderbird default.
However, a keyboard shortcut would be great too. I always send by pressing ctrl+enter and forget about the "send and archive" button.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2). 

Tab Utilities

essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Incompatible after updating to firefox 20 in linux, which made me realise how useful it is and how much I used it. Fortunately, the development version works as it was mentioned in other comments (at the bottom of the page, development channel)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.1). 

Autohide Folders panel

excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's great. As mentioned before if we were able to drag and drop in subfolders it would be even better.Thanks

EDIT: somehow, it is possible now to drag messages into folders (on ubuntu 64bit, thunderbird 17.0.5), which is absolutely brilliant. Even without this feature though, this add-on has become my favourite after having used it for a couple of months and I can't imagine thunderbird without it now. Thanks again to the developer.

Toolbar Autohide

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is absolutely brilliant. It could easily be a default firefox feature. The slide in effect is very nice and very practical. The settings in the preferences are very sensible too.
Great job. Thanks so much.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0.1). 

Automatic dictionary switching

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3). 

Gesture Translate

amazing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can't believe it's working so well. Simply amazing.
However, the "open dictionary" option only opens a blank tab/page.

Bookmark Tab

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simple and practical. Very nice.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6). 

Forecastfox Weather

Nice! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I especially like the "economy" icon set.
Lots of very useful weather information options.

Thanks

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.21). 

url-addon-bar

update needed Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is brilliant! Should have been firefox default (Add-on bar needs to be enabled).
It'd be nice if there were an update coming.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.4). 

gpum - Google mail Popup Unread Manager

Good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I like it a lot. For me it's much better than the competition. Being able to see the email subject and sender are especially useful. (Works fine in firefox 11.0, ubuntu 10.10, x86-64).
Many thanks to the developer

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.9). 

URL Suffix

Nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on, thank you very much.
(It works fine on ubuntu firefox 11).

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.6.0). 

Hide Menubar

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply brilliant!
Should be a default firefox option.
Many thanks.

Adblock Plus

absolutely essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been using it for so long I only remember how great it is when I use another browser or computer! It makes browsing much better.
The only issue is that it can be difficult to add exceptions from the add-on manager - or at least I find it complicated. Ofcourse using the toolbar button is even easier.
Many thanks to the developer.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3). 

BackupFox

doesn't work Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It sounds great, but doesn't work. I'm on ubuntu 10.10, 64bit.

Download YouTube Videos + Flash Video Downloader / Download-Helper

change default search engine Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I find it very usefull but for some reason it has changed my default search engine to bing.
Also, I cannot remove any buttons from its bar, although there's an option for it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.0). 

ViewMarks

lightweight & quick Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really like it. I have been using speedial for a long time, but lately it has been causing Firefox to slow down. Viewmarks seems to be more lightweight and quicker - although I just installed it
As others have said, it'd be nice to be able to rearrange bookmarks and folders. Also, it would be nice to be able to assign numerical values to bookmarks so as to access them with a keyboard shortcut, but I suppose something similar can be done from each bookmark's properties. Anyway, improvements would be nice as long as they do not affect speed!

EDIT: The more I use it, the more I find a bit annoying the fact that the bookmarks images are not updated.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.9.7).
