XMarks - went from being great to being a load of horse puckies Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Been using XMarks for a long time. I kinda let my configuration go and always meant to return and get it up and running properly again.
Can't seem to get it working anymore. I get the error message:
>>> GET ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org/bookmarks/foxmarks.json
[2017-03-16 02:51:03] Sync Error: Component returned failure code: 0x80004002 (NS_NOINTERFACE) [nsISupports.QueryInterface](undefined: 163)
[2017-03-16 02:51:03] SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data
[2017-03-16 02:51:03] Returned error: Synchronization error(4)
I've pretty much given up on this extension. It used to be great, but then it was purchased by LastPass, and went downhill. I don't know what this company was thinking, but they ruined a terrific product. Removing password sync was a stupid idea.
I wish I could get a working Windows version of the Mozilla sync server, since I prefer to host my own sync server, rather than relying on some company/organization. I'm really not a fan of the cloud.
Why am I seeing a DoNotTrackMe tab? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I updated Firefox to v31, and after it restarted, a tab opened up with the DoNotTrackMe website (Abine) appearing.
Where the hell did this BS come from? I didn't install any such add-ons. I don't see any Abine or DoNotTrackMe in my add-ons extension list.
Extension no longer working, doesn't appear to be supported Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This extension has stopped working for the last few versions of Firefox.
This shows two things... Extensions aren't forever, and Firefox ensures that.
Lightning - never kept in sync with Thunderbird Beta Rated 1 out of 5 stars
There's no point to beta-testing Thunderbird, if Lightning isn't going to be kept in sync. I'm switching back to the regular release channel.When Mozilla wants to get serious about Thunderbird and Lightning, then maybe I'll re-join the beta.
I would be willing to pay for Lightning, if the project was kept in sync. I understand the problems with finding people to help out, but honestly, I'm not a coder, or a triager, or any of that.
Bring back Twitterbar Rated 1 out of 5 stars
HootBar has recently stopped working.
I can't post. I can't authorize my account, even after wiping out the settings. Very annoying.
I am running the latest version, which is downloadable from the HootSuite website, and Mozilla's add-ons.
After searching around on the net, reading the website for HootSuite, and reading reviews and recommendations, I've decided that while it's the right sort of tool for me, it's absolutely useless if it's not working, and I now want to find something else that works better.
I guess for now on, I'll resort to using Trillian, and my android Twitter app to post my tweets. I may check out TweetDeck.
It's sad to have an extension stop working. I probably won't be coming back to HootSuite. I've already wasted too much time with it.
Needs to be integrated into Thunerbird Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It's time this add-on became part of the Thunderbird source code.
It's dumb to have it as an add-on.
Of all the dumb things that have been added to Thunderbird, this is one thing that would be smart.
Thunderbird updates - should come with extra strength Ibuprofen and Acetaminophen Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Every time Thunderbird updates, I have issues with Lightning. Doesn't matter if it's a beta, or a release.
With the latest Thunderbird Beta 13, I can't enable an already-installed version of Lightning, or install another version.
I know v13 is a beta version, for public testing and not normal consumption. Lightning should be integrated with Thunderbird by now, and it's code should be kept in league with Thunderbird, so it doesn't break every single time. You have some real problems if you can't keep Thunderbird and Lightning working across versions.
Now I have a decision to make: Revert to v12, and say to hell with testing Thunderbird - let some other poor schmuck deal with these constantly recurring problems, or just dump Thunderbird.
Get your act together, for the love of (insert favorite dea or deus here). It doesn't have to be like this. Give us some stability, please!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Time to go down something to get rid of this headache.
Scary, unsure, relies on Mozilla servers Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I've been contemplating trying Firefox Sync, but since so many people seem to be loosing information, and are generally unhappy with it, I think I'll avoid it.
The biggest thing that stops me from using it is it appears to only store sync data to Mozilla's servers.
This is a no-no for me. I will only store this sort of info on my own servers. This is not to say Mozilla can't run a safe and reliable server; I believe they can. But it puts my data in a place I am unfamiliar with, and makes me reliant on someone else's services to sync my bookmarks, passwords, etc.
The concept is great, the execution is flawed. I agree with the negative 9 million stars.
Xmarks all the way!

Abine should have taken a different route:
1. Offered a final version of Taco before they meddled with it.
2. Included a pop-up in the final version to let users know what is going on, and to offer then an upgrade path to Taco Plus (in a non-nagging way).
3. Produced Taco Plus as a new fork, complete with all the bloat.
The way they handled this was bad.
First impressions... Trust has to be earned... etc. The usual stuff.
Awesome extension - corrects Firefox deficiency Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Firefox's automatic offline switching was very annoying.
This solves the problem on my wife's laptop.. Thank you!
Mozilla needs to work on a better mechanism, or remove it all-together. Having to return Firefox to online upon resume (when leaving Firefox running and suspending the computer). Automatic offline is one of those dumb ideas I'd expect from Microsoft.

I love this extension.
There is only one website I need this for - Windows Update, and it worked flawlessly.
Unfortunately it doesn't work with Firefox v3.6 beta 3. I'm sure it'll get fixed.

This extension is necessary if you want to occasionally access Internet Explorer-specific websites such as Microsoft Update.
It needs support for IE8 and IE7-compatibility rendering mode.
