My Reviews

Starry Space Fantasy

Awesome, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

... please add support for latest theming of autocomplete popus (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1417883).

Firefox Dev Blue Binary

Google Images

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Redirects to
https://images.google.com/images?q={searchTerms}&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls={distributionID}:{locale}:{official}
where you get: "404. That’s an error. The requested URL /images was not found on this server. That’s all we know."

Since the author didn't respond, I wrote my own extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-image-ssl/
It offers these benefits:
- enhanced privacy, because ie/oe/rls parameters (see above) are removed from URL
- updated icon, hence easier to distinguish within Firefox' search settings
- size info overlay band/stripe at each image's lower end (saves clicking Tools -> Show sizes)
- Google typically detects localization correctly on its own, hence no locale added to URL
- cleaner URL is easier to edit, if required ;)

United States English Spellchecker

Needs to be updated! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I'd like to suggest an update to this extension as its source dic/aff files are dated 2016-01-19 and that source's current version is dated 2017-08-24, i. e. more than a year and a half newer.

German dictionary (de_DE)

Genial, aber... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

... bitte die Änderungsliste (entfernte/hinzugefügte/verbesserte Wörter) bei jeder neuen Version mitangeben, bspw. wie bei uBlock Origin - so ist's direkt im Add-Ons-Manager und nicht erst hier auf AMO sichtbar. :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20171116). 

Display inline

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works like a charm - pure awesomeness! Thanks for your dedication! :)

Phony

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

URL Link

Neil is the best! :) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Update to my previous review (now deleted by myself due to being obsolete):

It's amazing what Neil did with his take on rewriting URL Link as a WebExtension.
Thank you so much for putting that much effort into it! :)

My claim about your switch to Chrome originated from one of our direct mails where I read it as "I'll switch to Chrome soon" - at least, I thought so.
I apologize for misinterpreting your mail. It's good to know you're sticking with the hot fox. ;)

Lastly, as a suggestion, I'd like to ask if we (maybe via an option) can eliminate the new sub-sub menu, i. e. instead of:
URL Link -> Open Selection in New Tab, Help & Preferences -> Unaltered, [my defined targets]
I'd like to simply have
URL Link -> Unaltered, [my defined targets]

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.1.2). 

New Tab Tools

Awesome, but... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

... while I can manually add a tile now (though, not very easily via several actions within settings dialog), I still can't define a favicon- or image-URL. For the latter, I have to download it first and then manually choose it via settings dialog).. :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (11.1-signed).
