Add-ons Manager - Version Number

Glad I found this Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I was going crazy trying to manage my Greasemonkey scripts after Mozilla made the change. Thanks for making this addon!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1). 

Mailvelope

A step forward for online privacy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is PGP that just works. Best of luck to the developer.

MOZILLA: Please review and sign this addon! It can't be good PR for a security-enhancing addon such as this to display a cautionary notice in the Firefox addon manager!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.13.1). 

Google™ Text-to-Speech

Add option for US English voice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's a good addon. Google's voices aren't bad, but I prefer the US female voice. All you have to change in the audio URL request is tl=en to tl=en-US. It would be a cool option if the user could choose.

Automatik Text Reader

I like it Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not bad as far as TTS browser add-ons go. My major complaints are the lengthy delay between the time of clicking and start of speech (greater than 6 seconds on my laptop) and the dancing of my toolbar buttons caused by the inconsistent size of the "start speaking" and "stop speaking" button icons. By default I think the English voice should be a little faster, and of course there's always room for improvement in the quality of speech synthesis. Best of luck to the developer in improving this add-on.

Pushbullet

Red "unread" indicators? No thanks! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Please, if someone from the Pushbullet team reads this, the bright red numerical indicatiors on the add-on's icon need to go away! Or at least disappear once the add-on icon is clicked. Seriously, guys. Seriously.

Also: Implement the Push Files feature insead of simply redirecting users to the pushbullet.com site. If you're really not interested in adding drag-and-drop functionality for sending files with the Firefox add-on then stop teasing us and simply remove the option alltoether.

Also also: Re-engineer the login process so that those who wish to clear Cookies on Firefox shutdown may do so without the add-on suddenly thinking it has just been newly installed.

Open in Browser

Great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of the most useful addons out there. Firefox really needs some built-in flexibility regarding MIME types. Until then, please don't let this addon die!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.15.1-signed). 

Clean Links

Like it Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this addon, especially how it works with Google's sneaky URL re-writing. One thing I noticed however is that the location bar flashes yellow every time the addon does its thing...I didn't see any discussion of this anywhere and it drove me nuts trying to figure out why Firefox would "randomly" flash the location bar like that. Anyway now that I've discovered that, I'd really like a way to turn it off...a simple checkbox in the addon options would be great. :)

Google search link fix

Thanks for this great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really appreciate this addon. One thing to suggest...remove Gmail's link mangling too! I don't know exactly what happens behind the scenes with links in Gmail -- the links appear to go directly to the indicated web page -- but when you click a link it will actually open a new tab with the same URL location as the Gmail message you were reading and then the page will be redirected. Normal web pages that open links in new tabs will momentarily show the URL "about:blank" before loading the desired link, but if you watch carefully Gmail's links load a page from Google first, not about:blank (try it). Also, if you go to the advanced Firefox options and set it to warn you when a page tries to perform a redirect, you will get the warning every time you click a link in Gmail! Very annoying.

RefControl

Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I don't normally write reviews but I just wanted to refute some of the claims of the other reviewers. This addon works great for me in Firefox 22; but note that you must tell it what you want it to do in the addon's options. I use it to block the refferer on all pages. I know it works for two reasons. First is that if you visit a page hosted by Agility Host and your referrer is altered or blocked you will notice that the images don't load. Try my friend's website terrystowingstl.com Second reason is if you visit aruljohn.com and click the "view more details" link it will tell you what your referer is, in my case it's always "none". Even right-clicking the link and choosing "open in new tab" shows that the referrer has been blocked. Disabling the addon will show the normal referrer sent by Firefox. Nice work on this and thanks.

Google search link fix

Very nice Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would it be possible to add this feature into Gmail as well? I really dislike how all links in emails pop up a google.com page first and then redirect to the actual link. Thanks!

Gmail Favicon Notifier

Now it's officially part of Gmail Labs Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This same functionality is available by enabling the "Unread message icon" lab within Gmail settings.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.10.2). 

uTorrent WebUI

_The_ essential addon for utorrent users Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Managing my full-time headless utorrent client pc in the basement just got a whole lot easier with this addon. I can just browse to an online .torrent from any pc in the world, drag it's link to the FF status bar, and my utorrent client D/Ls it and sends back 3-sec delayed stats about transfer speeds, displayed discretely in the status bar. Quick access to the full webUI is a plus, too.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.8.2b). 

CookieCuller

For cookies, nothing else cuts it Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Yes, this add-on supports Firefox 3.0+
Don't know how the date is 2006, but he updated it to allow it to work with ver 3.

To the guy who says it's too easy to delete all your cookies, just spread the window's width to like 75% of the screen. Then when you click 'Remove all cookies' you have to move the mouse to the other side of the screen to click 'OK'. If you didn't really want to do it...or after the list goes empty you remember a cookie you need...just go the the other side of the screen and click 'Cancel' and no changes are made.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.3.1).
