TrashMail.com for Mozilla Firefox®

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

@macnomads' comment he would be wrong in his review. I use two disposable mail programs for the past several years and they all still work. I can not say much about trashmail because I do not use it. The ones I use allow me to track specifically who is the culprit behind realsing my contact info. Once I discover this leak it allows me to report it to the proper authorities.

Springpad Extension

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I knocked off a star because I can not create notebooks directly from the extension.

Apture

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

I am somewhat feeling that Apture is being prejudice in that you are only using Bing. I hate Bing! Please allow for one to choose who they would like as there search function. I would prefer Google.

Apture

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

NOTE: There is a conflict with Fanboy's List and the use of Apture Highlights 1.6. When this list is enabled it prevents Apture from working on sites.

This is the blockable item preventing Apture from working:
||apture.com^$third-party,script

Disable that item and it will work no need to turn off the entire Fanboy list

Maximum AdBlock

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I am not seeing what is so great about it!
I actually find using AdBlock Plus just as easy and I have more control. What is the point of removing an add when there is still the ad box creating an eye sore? Why would I want to pay to have that completely removed when AdBlock Plus will do it for me?

Provider for Google Calendar

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An additional feature that would be great is if this ext would handle webcal, ical, etc and send it to Thunderbird/Lightning or Sunbird or even via gCal

Define Word

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

For those who use AutoContext, why do you need this add-on? You could just simply use Add to SearchBar to add any site you want in conjunction with AutoContext. This way it allows you to use your own dictionary sites and not pre-configured.

Research Word

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

You all might just wan to try the already built in functions of Firefox. I use AutoContext (so menu just popus up), Add to search bar (allows me to add any search functionality from a site), and Organize Searchbar (good for grouping, also make sure its enabled in autocontext). It does the same thing. Everything is pretty much automatic. AutoContext also supports other add-ons

Lexiology.com Dictionary

Dictionary Tooltip

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I noticed that the only way the button tool appears is when you dbl click a word. It does not work if you left-click and select a word (in this instance you have to left-click, then right-click to select tooltip). If you use autocontext, there is no support. I really do like the idea of this tool.

Well, let me rephrase my last response, It sounds like a great add-on. However the idea of the agreement terms of the mention of data loss is a bit alarming. It almost sound to me that this add-on is capable of such.

Web Search Pro

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

It was a great add-on in its days. I stopped using it because I saw no purpose in using Web Search Pro, since Firefox can do practically the same thing on its own minus a couple of options. Add to Search Bar and Organize Search Engines are a great addition to Firefox's already built in features. If you really want Drag & Drop Zone then you can install the add-on. I use Auto Context along with it as well. The other reason I stopped using it was I was tired of having to submit if I wanted a site added (I like instant gratification, Add to Search Bar).
I see no reason to add an add-on who contains features that Firefox already has. Why bloat a system! Yes you can disable features of Web Search Pro, but the usage space is still there, allowing for more reasons your system to become fragmented. Not to mention the possible conflicting that could be caused with other add-ons or new ones the dev might not yet have had the chance to analyze yet. In my opinion that is one of the top reason add-ons do not always work how they should is overlapping code.

Now if you can honestly tell me that Web Search Pro uses the already built in code Firefox's search functionality uses (i.e. suggestions, quick keywords) then I would be apt to re-consider. Truthfully I would prefer an all in one Add-on (or at least the option of AIO or Individual in case I don't want all the features (not bloat my system with them only to just disable them).
