My Reviews

Immediate Currency Converter

Thank you! Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I am really looking forward to inline relabelling!
Conversion of all currencies to the locale.

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

Cookie AutoDelete

Great functionality : the obvious WebExtensions successor to SDC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great with normal tabs and containers and has been for ages.
Needs (1) a UI clean up; too large fonts/spacing for easy use of the white and grey lists and (2) ability to see existing cookies' domains to decide what to white list; eg. whitelisting accounts.<domain>.com is usually a pretty good idea - rather than <domain>.com as it keeps the account logged in but some of the tracking is disturbed.

Saved Password Editor

Hopefully, there'll be a web extension coming soon?! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this addon but come November's 57..
:-(

Time Capsule

Just checking this out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I bookmark a lot of things, always with tags. When I search for similar things, the URL drop-down does its best to find stuff I've already bookmarked.
Nevertheless I don't make as much use of the Firefox search characters (#,@,*,^,+,~,%) as I should. I happened upon this add-on looking for something else.
Quite like it so far but would prefer an automatic time delay before things start popping up rather than a manual set. Perhaps I'll change my mind once too many things start popping up!

MiniTranslate

I rather like this! Wish there were other languages too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Ideal way to almost passively get used to seeing a new language (in this case chinese mandarin). Beautifully, yes faultless, executed.
Well done the developers.
No-one had taken the time to commend so I must.

Inoreader Companion

Broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Doesn't even show up anymore within customise.
Pointless install.

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Great Addon, but should be core. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

e10s isn't going away, the old way is.
webextensions aren't going away, the old way is.
This should be core to the browser extensions list and in a column that I can sort on.
This add-on isn't a nice-to-have, it's effectively an upcoming bug notifier.

Emoji to English

Lovely little addon; does one thing very well. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Sometimes I can't make out what an emoji does. This solves the problem easy and without fuss. That's it. It's glorious!
Today I discovered that there are options; now I don't have to spoil the presentation of the text.

Duplicate Tabs Closer

This is one of my must-haves. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm rather profligate with tabs; anything I can do to keep the total down is a bonus. This does.
I have the "ignore hash" on, so that different areas of the same pages are treated as duplicates, and everything else in this group off.
The only downside, if you can call it that, is when I sometimes I want to duplicate the page and use the dup to explore the site. It's an extra couple of clicks to avoid being caught.

Tab Suspender (Tab Unloader)

Just what I wanted. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Have been looking for a 'tab unload' for a while. FF49 was very slow to close down, but then I do have far too many tabs.. :( "My name is boris and I have tab problem .."

FF50 negated the need considerably, but this seems to be what I am looking for.

Not sure why I need to double click to unsuspend, surely selecting the tab (focus) should unsuspend; perhaps no hooks to capture.

UPDATE: new version solves my only niggle.; look in the preferences (last checkbox).
Double click avoids unsuspending accidentally selected tabs. The original action is still there.

CanvasBlocker

The most functionally complete. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Could do with the notification not encroaching on the real estate, but rather as a traditional notification which disappears.
I understand why it was done this way (so that the site can be white-listed etc) but that's better accomplished by a toolbar button for those that want it.
This si functionally much better than the other implementation only slightly marred.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.1-Release). 

Direct Currency Converter for Firefox for Android

Great idea, much needed; Early implementation Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The selection of currencies is cumbersome and not easy to use.
Suggest asking for list of ISO standard symbols (which would make rate lookups easy for Per) or scrolling checkboxlist.

Needs also a blacklist of sites not to change as regex and other programming sites could get messed up with dollar ($) conversions. For instance it shouldn't be active on pages like https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/972/google-calculator/
Still warrants a 5* review however!

Tweet That!

Best of it's kind. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Doesn't open a full page just for a quick tweet.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.2.2). 

Add-on Compatibility Reporter

Great idea, wish it was better publicised. Makes the Addons page too busy though. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The additional extended text in the Extensions page giving the multiprocess status (compatible or not) is too extensive and makes the page far too busy.
Simple ICONS, which it already has, with the explanation in a tool tip would make the page much much less chaotic.

Duplicate Tabs Closer

Fabulous add-on. Always install. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

If you've got more than 50 tabs there are probably duplicates.
Needs:
1. Ignore http and https difference, by default or at worst a check box. Anyone who uses an https add-on will have this issue. Default/keep to https obv.
2. Auto closing of multiple newpage tabs. I seem to have got into the bad habit of clicking newpage to get to the end of the list of tabs. Recently discovered Alt-9 but I keep doing it.
3. Multiprocess support - it would be a 'mare if this addon had to die.
4. regex selection of duplicates. I appreciate this is a big UI job and I haven't felt a need for it very often. (only with search engines which use PUT- which I shouldn't keep open anyway.)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.5). 

Clean Uninstall

Absolutely fantastic bit of kit! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

One of my rare 5 stars. Always install.
Very useful if you install and uninstall a few add-ons over time.
Otherwise your "prefs.js" just gets bigger and bigger.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.1.7). 

Video DownloadHelper

Great add-on to save bandwidth. Settings difficulties lets it down one star. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Settings on a large screen can be difficult to read; the name is on one side and the setting itself is on the other side. For me that means counting down on both sides to make sure I completed the right one.
Other add-ons and applications have solved this by putting faint alternating backgrounds (eg. white/grey/white..) on the lines so that you can just follow it across easily by eye.

Not the most user friendly settings description; tool tips would help.

BUT still the best I've ever used.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.0). 

Inoreader Companion

Needs a serious update. Rated 3 out of 5 stars

- Could use bright/dim modes like the standard icon when RSS detected.
- Isn't compatible with e10s now present in Firefox 48+
- Cannot detect feeds from directory style; w/o an explicit xml file. eg. https://www.sleeter.com/blog/feed/
- echo the sentiments of https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/user/Prometheon/
