My Reviews

Adblock Edge

Excellent unbloated adblocker Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used Adblock Plus for years, but have been dismayed as it has become progressively more commercial. Wlad has added facebook buttons, "contribute to Adblock Plus" links on the adblock menu, has automatically opted in people to receive ads from companies that donate to him, and now he has added in a completely useless "typo corrector" that has bloated the extension even further. That was the last straw.

I was so pleased to see this fork - it works well, and gets back to the basics of what people want when the install an adblocker - i.e. to block ads, nothing more, nothing less.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0). 

FaceMoods

Malware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Don't be fooled by the relatively high rating for this addon. Click on the names of the people who have written five-star reviews for this addon. Notice anything in common? They have all only ever reviewed facemoods, none of them have ever written a review for any other addon. Doesn't that seem unusual to you?

In reality, other than the shill five-star reviews posted by fake users, this addon has been slated for being unadulterated malware - it changes your browser start page and new tab default page to their ad-infested homepage, will slow your browser to a crawl, and is almost impossible to get rid of cleanly.

Avoid!

Download Scheduler

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very basic but does exactly what you want it to do - letting you schedule downloads so that they start during off-peak hours when your ISP is not limiting your bandwidth.

Only gripe would be that the interface could be a little clearer - I tried figuring out how to set the scheduled hours in Tools>Download Scheduler, only to realize later that you had to change the options under the Addons menu of Firefox.

Thanks a lot for this.

LittleMonkey for SeaMonkey

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Poorly ported version of the Littlefox theme for firefox. This theme changes the seamonkey logo to the firefox one - awful :(

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.8.53). 

Paste and Go 3

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works fine on F 3.5.3. Don't know why this is still marked experimental, it's completely stable.

Ignore the review from Boudewijn, he's obviously reviewing the screenshot rather than the addon itself.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4). 

QuickDrag

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Superb addon, very lightweight yet adds so much usability to Firefox. A must have!

Please make a version for Seamonkey 1.x

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.2.1).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Remove New Tab Button

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

You can achieve the same thing just by adding

.tabs-newtab-button {display: none;}

to your userChrome.css file

YesScript

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

"blocking all scripts by default is paranoia"

Hear hear! NoScript makes browsing the web a real chore, all I need is an extension like this that I can set to block particular scripts I don't like.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5). 

Xmarks Sync

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

MALWARE ALERT

Please do not be misled by the high rating for this addon.

Most of the 5 star ratings were for a previous addon called Foxmarks, which was excellent. The company behind it have now changed the app to Xmarks, a spyware application that data-mines your bookmarks and serves you ads. They should not have been allowed to use the Foxmarks reviews for their malware Xmarks scam.

Please do not use, unless you don't mind slowing down your computer with bloated adware.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (3.0.2). 

Copy Plain Text

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of those essential add-ons that you wonder how you coped without. Small, simple and effective.

QuickDrag

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Wow, thanks so much! I have been wanting someone to make a lightweight unbloated successor to Super Drag and Go for ages.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

Aero Fox XL

Looks nice but breaks Firefox Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Since installing this theme I have had frequent crashes in Firefox, asfter just 2-5 minutes of browsing. I lost all my data in an important session.

Avoid if you don't want to completely screw up your computer.
