My Reviews

Google™ Text-to-Speech

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Good when it works, but the speaking rate is too slow (for US english anyway).
Other times, the extension does nothing ('reached the limit of Google text-to-speech API for the current session')
Need support for Firefox 24/Pale moon.

µBlock

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works great, but Pale moon support is poor. Please fix the toolbar icon!

Xmarks Sync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used Xmarks/foxmarks for over 8 years and it has yet to let me down.
Updates to the web ui have really slowed since the Lastpass purchase, which is a shame.
I prefer Xmarks' (depreciated?) password sync over lastpass since it uses the built in password manager.
The ability to roll back to previous passwords have saved me a lot of grief in the past.

Personal Titlebar

Some extension icons disappear Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Works great with built in elements, but some extension icons disappear after a restart when they are placed in the titlebar (adblock plus is one example).

I need to open the customize panel and drag the icon back, only to have it disappear again after a browser restart.

Very annoying and makes the addon significantly less useful... please fix this issue!

Download Flash and Video

Critical issue Rated 1 out of 5 stars

THE ADDON OVERWRITES EXISTING FILES IF "Start downloading immediately" IS SELECTED, and another file with the same name exists in the target directory!
This is a MAJOR bug and caused me to lose a ton of videos as they were overwritten without me knowing. No software should ever destroy data without informing the user.

Needs a prompt so the user can choose to overwrite/rename/cancel, or simply append the filename with a digit.

=========

Works flawlessly on most sites, very simple and lightweight.
Unfortunately, on some sites, the addon only detects flash video if the tab is active-- if I open a few tabs in the background then switch to them after the videos have started buffering, the downloader does not detect the video.

Not sure what causes this behavior to happen on some sites and not on others, but it is very annoying as I like to open a bunch of tabs, then download the videos by switching to each tab one after the other.

Also, there needs to be a way to immediately start the download without displaying the "Videos to Download" menu, esp if there is only 1 video.

Stylish

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

All 'problems' new version fixed with /* AGENT_SHEET */. Very responsive developer.

Makes websites usable and lets me customize every part of the Firefox ui to suit my needs.

SearchPreview

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have used this addon for as long as I can remember and I love it. Often I forget that it isn't a built in feature of Google serach.

Unfortunately as of lately it sometimes does not show up unless the page is reloaded.

Back to Close

Excellent Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is how it should be. Now I can quickly open links in tabs and back out with the mouse's back button. I must save at least a couple minutes every day because of this simple feature.

Not sure if it is possible, but I wish I could also hit back to close alerts and other modal windows (just as alt f4 would).

FireGestures

Instantly triples productivity Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works flawlessly and saves so much time. Must have for anyone who does more than just check their emails in Firefox.

One lacking option is a setting for minimum distance the mouse needs to be moved before the gesture kicks in; I have DOWN set as close tab, but it is easy to trigger it accidentally when trying to press the gesture button once. If I could set a gesture "sensitivity" of 10px or something, this wouldn't happen.

Google Privacy

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great, but a tiny bit slow to replace links. Sometimes I middle click a bunch of links immediately after the results page loads, and unfortunately those tabs are not always opened.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.3.1-signed). 

Image Zoom

Fit to window doesn't work? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For the past several Firefox versions, I have been unable to left click a image to have it fit to the window if I have used imagezoom to scale it.
Before, I could open large images, use image zoom, and still use left click to fit to window/scale 100%.

Other than that, this extension is as useful as ever, and I use it constantly without even thinking about it. Should be a default feature in Fx.

Menu Editor

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Must have for a simplicity-freak like me. If only customizing the context menus in other applications were so simple.
Needs a way to export settings, and additional editable menus would be nice.

Menu Icons Plus

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Makes menu items more easily distinguishable.
Not a big deal, but there are some missing icons for options like "select all", "paste and go".

Saved Password Editor

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very handy for poorly made websites that mess with the saving of login info.

NASA Night Launch

Bug when used with Omnibar Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Long time user of this theme and still think it looks great, but when used with the Omnibar extension, the location bar suggestions popup sometimes becomes invisible (completely white).
This can be fixed by using the companion extension to change the theme's setting to "use light popup background color", but that isn't ideal as I like the popup to be light text on dark background.

Hopefully this can be fixed.

Omnibar

Occasional bug with NASA Night Launch theme Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works great 99% of the time, but when used with the NASA Night launch theme, the location bar suggestions popup becomes invisible (completely white).
This can be fixed by changing the theme's location bar popup color setting to "use light popup background color", but that isn't ideal as I like the popup to be light text on dark background.

Download Manager (S3)

So close to perfect Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Works exactly like the good ol' download statusbar did, and also does file comparisons and generates MD5.
The about:downloads page is very nicely done as well.
The one missing feature is an option for single clicking an item to pause/resume. That saves a lot of time for those who constantly run downloads and need to allocate bandwidth.

Print Edit

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Awesome. The UI could be a bit simpler especially when it comes to multiselecting and undoing.

Reddit Enhancement Suite

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Must have for browsing reddit, but why is this version not being updated?
