Blur

Spys on your email Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This used to be a good add-on. Then Abine added what they claim is a "mail anonymizing" feature. But what that does is forward your email to Abine. That's a terrible idea. And it's in your face all the time. Abine is constantly watching what you type. If you type an email address, Abine pops up a message.

FAIL.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.1038.1-signed). 

Flashblock

Does not work with Internet Archive video Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Video on the Internet Archive (archive.org) will not play with FlashBlock enabled. The audio plays, and a second Flashblock icon appears in the middle of the video.

Try, for example, "https://archive.org/details/Aethericmachine14"

BlockSite

Major privacy violation - this add-on now "phones home". Rated 1 out of 5 stars

BlockSite used to be a straightforward add-on to block sites. Now, as of the last auto-installed release in July 2013, it "phones home" and collects information about user behavior. There isn't even a privacy policy on the Firefox site. On the developer's web site, "wips.com", we find:

"NOTE: WIPS.COM'S EXTENSION SERVICE COLLECTS AND STORES INFORMATION ABOUT THE WEB PAGES YOU VIEW. IN SOME CASES, INFORMATION COLLECTED BY THE EXTENSION SERVICE MAY BE PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE, BUT PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT AT WIPS.COM, AND WE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ANALYZE WEB USAGE DATA TO DETERMINE THE IDENTITY OF ANY WIPS.COM USER. ...

Wips.com may change any of the terms and conditions contained in this Agreement, including the Privacy Policy and other policies and guidelines governing the Service, at any time in its sole discretion."

This add-on needs to be forced to use a new name, and not auto-installed. Or deleted outright.

Used with Ad Limiter? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Mozilla suggests that this is "frequently used with Ad Limiter", which is a selective ad blocker. Someone installing both must be rather conflicted.

BlockSite

Just broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Broken. If you have more than 9 sites listed, so that the input window has to scroll, it starts blocking everything.

BlockSite

Great idea, too buggy Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It's a good basic tool, but not well implemented. It can hang the browser if you add to its blocklist while other windows are open. The "BlockSite has blocked elements of this page" comes up on pages that don't have blocked elements, when some other open page gets the message.

For the people who complain that it doesn't block subdomains, note that it needs wildcards, like "*.example.com", in the blocklist, to do that.

BlockSite

Useful, but pop-up banner appears on wrong pages. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The blocking function works fine. I've been using this as a blocker for ad sites, and it works quite well. Web browsing becomes much faster with a hard block on these sites. Here's a useful list to block:

*.doubleclick.net
*.quantserve.com
*.google-analytics.com
*.scorecardresearch.com
*.gravatar.com
*.247realmedia.com
*.likeme.net

The only problem is the annoying banner that appears when a site has a blocked ad. Not only does it appear on the page where content is being blocked, it also appears on other pages that happen to be open at the time but don't contain blocked links.
