My Reviews

SearchWP

Indispensable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

SearchWP (together with Conform Searchbox) is so great that it keeps me from switching to any other browser.

Please make SearchWP available to other browsers as well, because (unfortunately) Firefox is dying.

LastPass Password Manager

Idiots and morons seem to have taken over LastPass Rated 1 out of 5 stars

LastPass keeps getting worse and worse. Now almost nothing works anymore in Firefox. No autofill on many mainstream pages like e.g. eBay. GUI reaction times in the multiple seconds range, if at all. Dropdown menu on Firefox fucked up and defunct. Yuck, shame on you LastPass (and yes, I am a longtime paying premium user).

about:addons-memory

I don't get it Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This Addon looks good, but what is the point when Firefox leaks around at 2GB memory usage, and about:addons-memory reports a memory usage of 70MB altogether?

Lazarus: Form Recovery

Bummer Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This has saved my ass so many times (and boy did I donate) -- but now it is simply broken.

Scriptish

Did nothing -- Greasemonkey however worked Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Scriptish did nothing when presented with this userscript:
https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/21391-youtube-comments-sidebar

Also, there were absolutely no instructions about how to install a script.

Greasmonkey otoh instantly recognized the script and installed it with a nice dialog and after one click.

So I went with GM and uninstalled Scriptish.

LiveClick

Still working in FF 51.0.b.10 (32bit) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

While after every start of Firefox in the morning, LiveClick does not work at first, a simple restart of Firefox completely fixes LiveClick functionality.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.0).  This user has 6 previous reviews of this add-on.

SMPlayer View

Great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...and SMPlyer works about 20 times better than the crappy VLC player, YouTube-wise.

PopVideo

Dead Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work at all.

QuickFilterToolbar

Crashed my profile Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Unfortunately, this addon crashed my Thunderbird profile almost completely including the accounts. I had to restore the profile from a backup.

The Addon Bar (Restored)

Disappears after every reboot Rated 2 out of 5 stars

...and has to be manually re-activated.

Quicktext

HERE IS THAT PATCH Rated 5 out of 5 stars

mozCleaner

How the heck is this supposed to work? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

When I check those checkbuttons, what is going to happen when I click "Clean"???

--
OK so it removes the entire addons that I check. That is not "cleaning". Cleaning is removing junk like tempfiles, defrag databases and similar stuff.

So the name is misleading.

Restartless Restart

No button, no function Rated 1 out of 5 stars

bummer

YesScript

No icon anywhere Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Not in the toolbar, not in customize!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.1-signed.1-signed). 

Yet Another Smooth Scrolling

Does not work properly on Win 10 with touchscreen Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Good with the touchpad, but bad with the touchscreen (flicking the page stops instantly after lifting the finger).

For REALLY mind-blowing scrolling, try the new Microsoft Edge Browser :(

ImgLikeOpera

does bloody not work Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I choose "load images from cache only" as standard setting, AND I check if that mode is also active in the current tab. Still ImgLikeOpera loads ALL images from the web, which costs me loads of money abroad.

Bummer!

Multifox

Not compatible with the TabMixPlus Session Manager Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Don't use the Session Manager of TabMixPlus, otherwise you will have to change the Multifox account on all respective tabs all the time, and to re-sign in to your different Gmail accounts all the time.

Other than that, great.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.2.1). 

Copy Folder

Copy but why not MOVE? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'd rather MOVE than copy the messages. If copying, you'll end up with lots of duplicate messages because the copy process never runs through but you'll have to start over several times.

Btw, this is the typical WTF-moments you unfortunately get with Copy Folders after like three hours:

Lazarus: Form Recovery

Invaluable Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...for everyone who HATES loosing half hours of their lives!

MiniWebView Sidebar

Great, but leads to high CPU load Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Still amazing -- however MiniWebView Sidebar leads to constant high Thunderbird CPU load in my case (Gmail in the Thunderbird Sidebar). Maybe this can be investigated by the developer?

--
Edit: thanks for the quick reply -- actually I get the high CPU load also when I disable that script and even when MiniWebView Sidebar does not display anything (is empty).

If I disable MiniWebView Sidebar, then I get like 0,5% CPU load for Thunderbird. If MiniWebView Sidebar is enabled (no matter if empty or with website inside), I get 15% CPU load (Intel i5-2500K CPU).
