My Reviews

Weather Extension

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have been a user of Tim's app since it was first introduced some 4 years ago.

From a practical perspective, it's the only weather app that works, absolutely never fails to do what it's supposed to do, and more.

I ran through any number of other apps that didn't work, or in the case of the major weather sites, were too intrusive.

Tim is also genuinely a terrific person, he is helpful, supportive and very responsive.

I wish this was true for all of my apps, frankly for all of the software I now use.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Weather Extension

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have this extension on Firefox, and now Waterfox.

Tim has built a sensational extension, the single best weather app ever in Firefox; I've been using FF since it was Phoenix, been through a number of apps, ultimately none of them worked.

Tim also has a deft customer service approach, unbelievably gracious and hands-on. Bravo, all around.

Diigo Web Collector - Capture and Annotate

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After all these years of using Diigo, this is just awful.

I tried downgrading, because I am now on FF 52 ESR, went back to Diigo 3.XX, same crap, nothing actually works.

I simply want to bookmark a link. How many people need this new functionality? It's noise!!!!

You are a bookmarking service, period, this is not rocket science.

Why do this to your user base?

Oh, I understand, you know better, we are just nuisances so you have to lead us.

I also tried installing the Diigolet, can't, only gives me Step 1, nothing more, installation doesn't work, it's just a broken page.

All these companies are now run by a bunch of cowboy coder-bros who know everything, yet know nothing.

See Mozilla, re: Firefox, same crap.

LastPass Password Manager

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

In the past decade or so, since the very first version of Firefox, it has been very rare that I've had problems with an extension, I really can't recall a single one.

Nor do I remember any extension author not responding if there was a glitch.

Not in this case, this has become a horrible product, horrible company.

I have used Last Pass since it's very first version, so I'm not a novice.

The latest versions are horrible, if I could give it 0 stars, I would.

Nothing works anymore, it generates passwords, I have no idea where they are now stored; the FF extension doesn't work, it comes up as an empty pop-up box, this is the icon on the lower right; they have added categories for new sites that apparently you can't override; there are stored passwords on sites that I don't recognize; and, etc.

It is a horrible mess, absolutely the worst and based on the complaints in the Last Pass forum and across other sites like Wilders , I'm not alone.

I have to do something, I'm afraid I'm going to lose all my passwords. The empty pop-up box scares me, this is where all of the basic functionality resides, it's how I get to my vault.

This company doesn't care, they are completely unresponsive. I'm tired of technology arrogance from these companies that think their products are so vaunted. I'm tired of bad software at the expense of what some coder-bro thinks is an elegant UI.

It's the functionality that's important, Last Pass has removed or obfuscated the core functionality.

My guess is that all of these comments on here recently are phony - with all of the reported problems, these glowing comments don't ring true.

I'm done.

AdBlocker Ultimate

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Couldn't be happier with AdBlocker Ultimate.

Been using UBlock, it's fine, just too complicated, used AdBlock Plus (and forks) for a long time, became a performance drag on all my systems.

This is absolutely spot on thus far, no performance issues, no ads. Period.

I continue to use the same subscriptions - Fanboy Ultimate, Peter Lowe's List and Malware Domains - in every platform, AdBlocker Ultimate runs much quicker with them enabled.

Blocking elements is much easier than any of the other platforms I've used.

This is great...

MaskMe: Online Privacy Protection

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am moving to a new laptop and PC, tried to add Mask Me, won't work anymore.

Went to the site, tells me that it only shows my list from 470 days ago.

I've had an account for years, now it won't recognize anything, keeps trying to set up a new account.

I don't want Blur, have no need for it, I just want masked emails - I already use Last Pass, won't shop on-line anymore.

Now I've lost years of masked emails. Trying to deal with Abine over the years has been problematic, not sure they really care.

Delicious Post

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I have been using this add-on for years, never had an issue.

Over the past 10 days or so, it has become a hit or miss proposition when trying to save a link. I simply can't save links from certain sites such as Salon, AV Club, National Geographic or even my local newspapers, among many other sites.

I continually get an immediate response of, "Error Saving Link" or Error Saving Link, Timed Out" message.

Hate to go, but I need this capability to post to Delicious.

Adblock Edge

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am so glad that this fork is around, it is brilliant, don't have to deal with the pay-for-play holes now in the original.

That said, there are alternative subscriptions mentioned on your support site that I want to add and do away with the standard Easy List/Fanboy lists that enable those holes.

I am seeing Google ads in places I never saw before - as an example, there are now big banner ads on my Delicious home page that were never there until this week - it seems to be turning off ABE, and quite frankly, I want nothing more to do with the original ABP, subscriptions included.

Please explain how we add those alternative lists so that I/we can understand.

I might suggest that somebody, maybe the author of Issue #78, add the directions on how to add those, in addition to here.

Again, brilliant add-on.

Thanks for your effort.

SmartVideo For YouTube

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't work in 20.01.

As a matter of fact, more than one video started to play - 4 different videos started simultaneously.
