My Reviews

Tab History Menu (modified)

needs updating for Firefox 28 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

With Firefox v28, this add-on makes it more difficult to close a tab, by often requiring multiple clicks. It also retards the ability to drag-and-drop tabs. Worked well with previous versions.

Lightning

lacking Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Lightning has limited features, and is not well thought out. For one, it only shows one month, when there is plenty of space to show several. The calendar should integrate with contacts for appointments. The developers should take a close look at Outlook and Efficient Calendar, and see what they are missing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.9.1). 

ThunderSync

features? Rated 2 out of 5 stars

A lot of explanation with little clarity. I was hoping to be able to import vCard files with this, but cannot figure out how to do that, or if this add-on does that.

MRC Compose

wrongly adds attachments Rated 2 out of 5 stars

MRC Compose automatically adds any attachment you used in a previous email to the next (current) email. It is a bug, as there is no way to turn this off. I can't figure out how to report this as a bug, which is also a bug.

The developer replied, but the link given has no entry point to report the bug.

Here is how to create the problem:

1) add an attachment (a#1) to an email (e#1)
2) send email e#1
3) create email e#2
4) email e#2 automatically has attachment a#1

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

TB Custom Toolbar

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Does not work with TB 17

Advanced Unread Folders

can't remember its option Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This add-on cannot remember the options you select (v 17.0.6), which makes it less useful in seeing what you'd prefer not to see. I'm pitching it because it does not offer a convenience.

Manually sort folders

well done and quite useful Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an essential add-on if you want control over your folder listings. Works at every level, from accounts on down to every folder level. Also allows you to set your preference for the startup folder.

ImportExportTools

most excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Needed to import .eml messages from The Bat!. This worked great. Nice work.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.0.3). 

Sage

decent, weak documentation Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Works well enough once you figure it out. Typical of software developers, the documentation for this add-on is sketchy. If you don't know a lot about the technology, you will be confused.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.14). 

NewsFox

worthless Rated 1 out of 5 stars

buggy. difficult to use.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.8.4.1.1). 

Session History Tree

not what it says Rated 1 out of 5 stars

does not work as advertised. only provides a button to "clear session history" in view/toolbar/customize.

The add-on "Tab History Menu" does a better job of what this add-on purports doing.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0). 

FF History

nothing there Rated 1 out of 5 stars

doesn't work.

Hide all Images

works well Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on works quite well once you know how to access it. There is a sky blue "Hi" icon added to the address bar. Clicking the "Hi" icon hides all the images on the current web page. You have to refresh the page to restore the images. It is a convenient way to readily get past visual clutter to see the text of a page.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1). 

Flash Killer

doesn't work for Windows 7 64-bit Rated 1 out of 5 stars

This add-on has no effect (i.e., does not work) using Windows 7 64-bit.

Greasemonkey

greasy Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I can't get Greasemonkey to work. It is badly documented, and confusing. Scripts are not well explained. Installing scripts is inherently hazardous, and there is no protection.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4).
