My Reviews

InlineDisposition (WebExtensions)

No Support Link Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Need a support link so I don't have to report temporary issues here...
When this addon is off I have no issues, turn it back on and I experience the following:

Whether attempting to sign in to change password via gmail or google search page, or attempt to open gmail contacts I get a dialog... such as:
"Opening ServiceLogin"
ServiceLogin
which is: application/binary
from: https://accounts.google.com
What should Firefox do with this file?
(radio button) open with (choose button)
Save File
Do this automatically for files like this from now on.

Again, when I turn this addon off I have no problems signing in / don't get the dialog box. Enable this addon, the problem immediately returns.

Open Image In New Tab

Love this addon, should be FF default & a lot more people should be using it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love this addon, should be FF default
and a lot more people should be using it!
________________________________________
DEV FYI:
Popup Alert says "not compatible with Firefox 51.0.1" ("Open Image In New Tab could not be installed because it is not compatble with Firefox 51.0.1").
—your support website still being under construction I tried dev.next.gen.nz, but got "Server not found"
Should I just wait a little bit or disable compatibility checks? Thanks!

Simple-Calculator

Simple & Clean Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Very convenient to use vs switching between my OS calculator and FF: Instead I can just stay on FF to do calculations. Simple and clean.
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
DEV FYI: When click to install addon I get a FF Popup Alert that says "not compatible with Firefox 51.0.1" ("Simple-Calculator could not be installed because it is not compatble with Firefox 51.0.1"). —Couldn't find a support website for this addon. Please advise: a short wait or temporarily disable compatibility checker?
Also:
Would love it if it could also remember the last calculation done after the addon's window has been closed.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.0).

RESCUE THIS ADDON! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Amazon Assistant for Firefox

GIVE Wishlist Button BACK TO US! —UPDATE: New One Still Doesn't Work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Email Jeff Bezos at jeff@amazon.com —As silly as it sounds, that's his office email (assistants will reply)
—UPDATE: HALF A YEAR LATER —Still Doesn't Work, still just get a loading indicator.
__________________________________
Even if this "Amazon Assistant" addon worked (I only get a loading indicator) —too many others are also saying it sucks.
They could have kept both this -and- the Universal Wishlist Button —and let customers choose. They Didn't.
You can't get the Universal Wishlist Button directly on amazon anymore either —clicking install button at "amazon.com/wishlist/universal" takes you to Mozilla's "We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for"
—WE ALL WANT THE "UNIVERSAL WISHLIST BUTTON" BACK.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (10.1612.1.304).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Webutation - Reputation & Security

Does Not Work. Shady Connections —Avoid. Avoid. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does Not Work. Even with a fresh FF.
Worse... Their site Webutation.net still relies on WOT Results, Even after WOT was REMOVED BY MOZILLA and Google (chrome) due to being caught selling user data and 'providing' weak supposed anonymization of YOUR DATA —This is Global Knowledge Now, so webutation has no excuse.

Amazon Assistant for Firefox

GIVE Wishlist Button BACK TO US! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Email Jeff Bezos at jeff@amazon.com —As silly as it sounds, that's his office email (assistants will reply)
Even if this addon worked (I only get a loading indicator) —too many others are also saying it sucks.
They could have kept both this and the old Wishlist Button —and let customers choose. They Didn't.
You can't get the old/better one directly on amazon anymore either, amazon.com/wishlist/universal —clicking install button takes you to Mozilla's "We're sorry, but we can't find what you're looking for"
Also, Bars Are Not Popular Anymore —for a reason. They take up valuable screen space and clutter the browser — WE ALL WANT THE UNIVERSAL "WISHLIST BUTTON" BACK.

Add Bookmark Here ²

Add Bookmarks —By Right Clicking Bookmarks Bar/folders Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Make Bookmarking Simpler.
Add Bookmarks — By Right Clicking Bookmarks Bar/folders
Love it, Don't go without it. Never buggy.
DEV: Please Add "Undo Bookmark" Feature, Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (17.0.20121128.1-signed). 

Etsy

Use Etsy's own search box right from FF's search bar Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Use Etsy's own search box right from FF's search bar!
Note: This Is Not an additional search-bar. It will also Not add anything to your addon-manager list —Its A Good Thing, Much Simpler:)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20090911). 

Color toggle

Ease Eye Strain & Stress Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Simple Effective Addon that Always Works:
Toggle your custom colors on, toggle off to restore the page's original colors.
Ease Eye Strain and Stress; Change colors that bug your eyes, OR trigger PTSD like red can...
The only con is that links will appear red as you hold down right click.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.13.1-signed.1-signed). 

Add to Search Bar

Better Than FF Built In Feature! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Love It, Love It... FF's built-in 'add to search bar' doesn't allow you to add just any website. Use virtually any site's search box right from FF's search bar: well-known -to- obscure, highly specialized -to- 'mom and pop' sites.
An Invaluable Search Speed Dial —You Have It, You Can Search It. Immediately.
Efficiency and Speed —This is the addon.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.1-signed). 

Memory Fox

Linux/Ubuntu -Make Available ! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Please make Memory Fox Available for the Ubuntu/Linux Platform:) !!! I absolutely depended on this addon while running the windows OS... after years of use I was tired of 'windows'. I love Ubuntu and want the advantage that Memory Fox gives! That would make for an even more Powerful OS-Firefox Duo:)
