My Reviews

uBlock Origin

May be a great blocker, but personally I don't like it Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It may do great stuff, but I find the interface confusing and unclear as to what happens when you choose certain options. I don't see any options to block only temporarily/one time. It seems to make permanent changes, and it seems like you have to manually reload the page after unblocking a page or site. If a simple addon doesn't have an interface that I can understand intuitively with a few uses, it goes in the bit bucket. I've been using this one for months. Maybe I'll come back and try it again one day and it will all make sense.

Amazon Assistant for Firefox

When I click on the icon, the menu opens and the throbber spins but nothing appears Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Looks interesting but I've had it on FF for several versions 50+ (now 53.0.2) and nothing appears on the dropdown when I click the Amazon Assistant icon. It opens and the progress spinner keeps spinning, nothing else happens. Two stars for effort and because so many others say it works!

FavIcon Reloader up to FF 48 only

It's the only Firefox favicon fixer available; works great on FF 48 after a tweak Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I lost all my favicons when I deleted places.sqlite in an attempt to correct a different problem. I soon realized favicons aren't just eye candy; they accelerate and enhance browsing, so I hate to lose them.

I searched for solutions and this unique addon proved to be the only worthwhile fix. Initially, it didn't work on FF 48 on Windows. So I tried replacing places.sqlite with a backup copy, but this didn't restore my favicons. However, I found that, after replacing places.sqlite and trying Favicon Reloader again, the addon worked! The dialog was displayed, I ran it, and it fixed my favicons. Excellent. I recommend trying this workaround if the addon doesn't work for you.

Undo Closed Tabs Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This 'undo closed tab' button has more features than the others, useful ones

Multi Web Search

Hopefully it will be able to search for images, videos, etc. (not just web) in the future Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I like the addon but I wish it gave you the choice of searching for images, videos etc. as well

Menu Wizard

Best FF Menu Tool Yet Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Easy to use. Menu configuration screen is conveniently displayed as a web page. Makes it easy to move, activate or deactivate entries by drag and drop. I was pleased to see I was even able to move entries like "View Page Source" into my Web Developer menu as a subentry. Seems light on resources ... and lightens up your menus!

Bluhell Firewall

New "allow/allow for this session" feature is great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

BH has a new feature that lets you "allow" a blocked site from now on or "allow for this session." Fantastic--a very welcome feature! (it will probably get us users to stop complaining about not having an ability to add custom exceptions :)) I saw the proof of how well this light addon works when it totally got rid of the trashy video ads on a sharing site I frequent. I never bother with the other blocker addons anymore.

Like it, but I misunderstood--I thought it would show all links on the linked page Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This looks to be a very useful little addon. I've just started using it and exploring its features. However, based on the thumbnail and description, I mistakenly thought it would show all links on the linked page. In other words, if you pop up LinkWalker on a link in Google Search, and the linked page had on it an "About Us" link, a "Contact Us" link, and a "Products" link, I thought LinkWalker would list those links. Obviously, I misinterpreted the thumbnail and description. But the addon has many other uses. Might the developer consider adding such a feature, or would it be too cumbersome or not fit the addon's intended purpose?

Easy Copy Paste

Seems good so far, good choices on context menu Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Would be nice to have in the context menu: Paste With Formatting, Paste Without Formatting. Strangely, sometimes Paste stops working. Not sure this is being caused by this addon. Seems like when I go into Easy Copy Paste Options and toggle Enable Paste off and back on, then exit Options, paste (sometimes) works again. Paste IS enabled in right click menu.

Undo Closed Tabs Button

Great addon, options, and updates! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a great addon. Replaces deprecated feature with extended capabilities and has lots of good options. Maybe add "Options" to the button's dropdown menu?

Big timesaver Rated 4 out of 5 stars

A big timesaver. I often need to check long lists of sites for business directories. For years, I've been copying and pasting the URLs one at a time and pressing Enter. This saves several steps. The slideshow and next-button features are great. Because it's a toolbar, I can toggle it on and off at any time without having to re-enable the addon. I know it's designed specifically to import URLs only and ignore extraneous text that might appear in the input source, but it would be even more helpful if I could import URLs with more advanced search commands like " 'contact us'" or "related:"

Bluhell Firewall

I like it, seems mostly unobtrusive, add exception list if possible Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It's been working well for me for a couple months. Generally it just works and I don't pay much attention. I add my vote for adding a user-customizable exception list if it doesn't interfere with the developer's intent for a lightweight extension.

TabGroups Manager

Availability of New Version at should be emphasized! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Working great in FF 22, now that I found and installed the newest version from The existence and availability of the newer versions should be more prominently noted here. I didn't find out there was a new version until I was hunting for some documentation and discovered the update there. Still no docs, though.


Fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an amazingly thorough and feature-rich ePub reader--all right inside our beloved Firefox. No need to install some bloated resource-hogging separate application like Adobe Digital Editions. It respects the Digital Rights Management status of the ePub. It even creates an ePub-Catalog where you can see the books you've viewed, complete with Author, Title, Date Added and a drop-down menu to go instantly to the ePubReaders eBook Shop and other ebook sources online. Lets you set bookmarks in the eBook, change font size, navigate Table of Contents in sidebar, save the ePub locally, configure third-party ePub plugins ... The user manual seems to be extensive, well-organized and well-written, with lots of helpful screen shots. Highly recommended.

Find and Replace for FireFox

Me Thinks No Workee in FF 8 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The dialog came up, but I tried several different replaces, case insensitive, and nothing happened at all. Further, I couldn't find the replace bar or how to make it show. Shift+R opens FF's normal Quick Find bar. I'm sure this addon has good potential and I look forward to trying it in the future.


Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon.
