RefreshBlocker

Doesn't work at all for me Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I can't get this to work at all. I added one site that I wanted to refresh-block, and clicked Enable RefreshBlocker and The list acts as a Blacklist. It didn't work. I then tried all eight combinations of Enable Debug Mode on/off, RegExp on/off for the URL (even though it didn't use a regular expression), and Test against Current URL/Target URL. I restarted FF between each change of options. No combination worked: the page I wanted to stop refreshing, kept refreshing. It's a shame; I really want this functionality and no other addon offers it.

I'm running FF 35.0.1 on Win 7 Home Premium SP1.

Flashblock

Growing problems and no update for almost two years Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles

Flashblock is failing to work, or only partially working, on more and more pages, and according to its development page (http://flashblock.mozdev.org/) the last released update was on 2013-03-23. Drake, bless you for the YouTube fix. But Flashblock is becoming steadily more of a pain, and unless fixes come soon, it will no longer be worth using.

Flash Block

Not compatible with FF 34.0 Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

The developer site (http://flashblock.mozdev.org/) shows no updates since 2013-03-23. Is this now a dead product?

Adblock Plus

Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles

This is my one absolutely essential FF add-on. Advertising is out of control everywhere, but on the internet it's excruciatingly intrusive. I've learned to visually tune out much advertising (TV ads, billboards, sides of buses, grocery carts, register receipts...), and I could do it online too. But it's tiring, and without AB+, I would browse less and use fewer sites.

The automatic subscription lists do most of the work and hide most advertising and irritating screen navigation controls. The Element Hiding Helper is pretty technical and requires a learning curve to use it well, even for someone like myself who knows a lot about the guts of web pages. But it's totally worth it; the powerful Hiding Helper gets rid of almost everything I encounter that's not already on the subscription lists.

As far as I can determine, no other browser has ad blocking, either native or add-on, anywhere near as good as Adblock Plus's. Thus I'm unlikely to ever use an internet device that doesn't have a version of Firefox.

Searchonymous

Disables access to Google Voice Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

With Searchonymous active, when I try to access Google Voice, I get this message: "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." Google Voice is an essential app for me. If Searchonymous won't work with GV, I can't use it.

PriceBlink - Automatic Price Comparison & Coupons

No help on Amazon.com Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles

This review is only about how PriceBlink behaved on Amazon.com. (That was so discouraging that I didn't try it anywhere else.)

During a browsing session on Amazon, PriceBlink showed lower prices for only 6 of about 40 items. The "best price" for all the other items was higher, mostly by $2-3. In one case, PriceBlink showed a best price of $17.28 for an Amazon item priced at $2.98. The 6 items for which PriceBlink did show lower prices were very cheap anyway -- Amazon price $2.50-4.00 -- and PriceBlink's lower price was only a few cents less.

Not a keeper for me.

TrackerScan

Doesn't work at all Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles

I installed TrackerScan in FF 12.0. When I click the TS icon, I get either no response or a blank page. I turned off pop-up blocking and Adblock Plus for the site, and it didn't make any difference.
