My Reviews

OmniSidebar

excellent! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

since the font size for the add-on panel was increased in 1.5.1b2, i have no issues with this add-on

i've used AiOS for a long time and it is also very good, but i much prefer the sidebar switch in Omni since it does not use any space of the document width

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

Abduction! - Webpage Screenshots Screen Capture

Policeman

I LOVE YOU MAN! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

a great alternative to the mostly abandoned Request Policy!

great work!
well thought out
fairly easy to use

NewsFox

i agree with others - i'm starting to like it less as time goes by Rated 3 out of 5 stars

it slows the FF UI even with only 2 threads set and kills it with anything much more over 2

development seems to have all but ceased

after years, there is STILL no option to hide the feed tool-bar and REMEMBER ITS STATE across sessions!

Newsfox is not available in the FF feed subscribe menu on newer version of FF - what's with that?

NewsFox

best feed reader for FF, but it doesn't save settings properly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

hands-down the best news reader for firefox - i like everything about it, except that it does really make the browser unresponsive when refreshing, perhaps even more so with more than 2 threads set

the only little niggle i have with it is that, when changing multiple settings, it appears only the first change is saved, so you have to re-enter the options UI for each change

i noticed this particularly when changing the global and group sort options

Redirect Bypasser

too intrusive Rated 3 out of 5 stars

i'd like this add-on a whole lot more if the icon/menu thing were not there at all - most other add-ons i've seen like this simply fix the link, and optionally highlight it, without being so intrusive - if the user wants to see the cleaned and un-cleaned URL, this could be displayed in a simple tooi-tip and cleaned links could just have a bit of custom CSS applied

other than that, it has a lot of well thought options

Organize Search Engines

very buggy, unmaintained Rated 1 out of 5 stars

used to be a good ext, but the dev, though he is still active on other extensions, has apparently abandoned this one

if a dev can't maintain their work, fine, but PULL THE EXTENSION instead of causing everyone headaches

Saved Password Editor

doesn't work where i need it to Rated 2 out of 5 stars

in each case i tested, it doesn't work - it seems that if FF doesn't prompt to remember passwords, then this extension can't fill them in either, even after entering the credentials manually (the auto-guess from the current page fails to find the input fields, even though they are easily found in the page source)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.7.3). 

RememberPass

OBSOLETE - no longer needed as of FF v30 Rated 2 out of 5 stars

i believe this add-on is obsolete as of FF v30, or thereabouts

according to a bug report i saw, Mozilla dropped support for handling the "autocomplete" attribute

to verify this, go to the add-on authors test page and see if FF asks to remember passwords without this add-on installed - i am asked to remember the login credentials in all 4 instances in my case

there are, however, other ways a website can cause the FF remember password dialog from being displayed and i am seeing these more and more - in these cases, again, this add-on will not work

look at their support email addres: support@ppclick.com - ppclick = pay per click

BetterStop

doesn't stop loading of PDF files when they are viewed in FF Rated 4 out of 5 stars

just noticed this since pdf preview became active in a newer version of FF - you cannot stop it from loading

NewsFox

broken in ff 32.0.2/3 Rated 4 out of 5 stars

NewsFox is not listed as an option when clicking the feed icon to add a new feed

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.9.1).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

Conform SearchBox(with automatic learning)

BROKEN/UNMAINTAINED Rated 1 out of 5 stars

it would be nice to have ONE working extension that provides this functionality, but they all appear to be broken

in this case, changes made when editing the regExp for a domain are not saved

also the search terms are modified when opening the next page of the results on google

other minor issues as well

SearchWP

could be better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

could add highlighting to the scroll bar as other extensions do

more importantly, word button are forgotten after browser restart - you have to click in the search bar, then click outside of it to re-buttonize the words

EDIT: thanks to the dev for his reply ;)
