Worked at first... Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
... But, now, it's not working any more. Like all other site blocking add-ons, this stopped working (well, at least, it worked the first time I ran it, others usually fail from the start). Why is that no add-on seems able to block sites on Firefox?
Failed, After All Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
At first, it worked, but now, total failure! It doesn't block anything, like every other site blocking add-on. Why is it so hard for an add-on to block sites?!Cet utilisateur a une revue précédente sur ce module.
Almost perfect! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
It does what it says, blocks sites (including referenced links, like images hosted on blocked sites, but used on different Pages). Easily replaces a lot of heavy weight security add-ons, like Adblocker and Ghostery. On the down side, it lacks regex matching, so it requires multiple rules to block different image formats, for example. Hint: if it seems to fail, at first, try cleaning the browser cache,
A site blocker that works! Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
The purpose of this add-on is to block oneself from accessing some sites, mainly while working, avoiding distractions, but what it can actually do is what several security add-ons absolutely fail at, block sites! Very lightweight and straight forward, just add the troublesome site address and voila, it won't be loaded anymore! On the down side, files referenced are not blocked (e.g., an image loaded from a blocked site will still be loaded).Cet utilisateur a une revue précédente sur ce module.
A site blocker that works, finally! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
The purpose of this add-on is to block oneself from accessing some sites, mainly while working, avoiding distractions, but what it can actually do is what several security add-ons absolutely fail at, block sites! Very lightweight and straight forward, just add the troublesome site address and voila, it won't be loaded anymore! I'm using it to replace all other heavy weight security add-ons (Ghostery, Adblocker, Karma Blocker, uMatrix and whatnot). It may not have wildcards, regex or whatever, but it REALLY works! Add a site to Adblocker, for example, and try to access it to see what happens (I tell you, it will be readily loaded, although with some images and scripts broken, but still loaded, what can be disastrous if the Page has a malware).
Fake add-on! Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
As others have pointed, it is a fake. It doesn't block anything, it allows the listed Pages to load, then redirects them to a blank Page, also cleaning the address bar. If the Page is lightweight, one may not notice that happening, but loading heavy Pages easily shows the fraud. And no, it's not a cache problem or whatever, as I cleared everything before testing. Also, the BACK button becomes active, so it's even possible to go back to the supposedly blocked Page (what will redirect to the blank Page again, but the wasted bandwidth, system memory, time and whatnot will still happen). Someone should take this trashy add-on down!Cet utilisateur a une revue précédente sur ce module.
What is it doing?! Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
At first glance, it looks like it's working, but, paying close attention, something fishy flashes... The URL is updated, so, the supposedly blocked site's Page is loaded and processed (in my test case, it also redirected to a subdomain in the same site), only then the Page is blanked out! For a fraction of a second, I saw the whole Page loaded, images and all, then, everything was wiped out, including the address in the URL field... So, what is it doing, this add-on, loading the Pages to, AFTERWARDS, clean its tab?! Whatever damage the site could have done, it would have done by the time it was wiped out! Useless add-on!
Fails too many times Noté 2 sur 5 étoiles
This add-on does what it was supposed to do only part of the time. It doesn't show the actual source, but, instead, seems to download the Page from its address, what's useless on dynamic Pages (i.e., almost all Pages worth visiting nowadays). It needs a conceptual fix, showing the actual source of what's being displayed, not the starting Page.
Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles
On a previous review of mine, I gave this 5 stars. Unfortunately, I found a bug that rendered it useless. After many months using UAQS, suddenly, its icon disappeared. I tried to disable/re-enable it, then I tried to uninstall/reinstall it, then I tried to restore default customization (what was my last resort, I was not going to reset Firefox just to get a single add-on back). In-between them, of course, I restarted Firefox a lot, even tried to look on its "do not edit" configuration files on profiles' directory to hopefully get it working, but all for nothing. Now my Firefox is all misconfigured and no UAQS icon anywhere. Searching for other add-ons to replace UAQS, I discovered that it's a common bug. It happens when the programmer misplaces the icon anchor. Well, I hope this add-on is fixed soon, because as it is, it is useless (actually, it becomes useless after some customization sessions...)Cet utilisateur a une revue précédente sur ce module.
Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
Very useful for people with hundreds of tabs. It stores the inactive tabs as bookmarks, keeping them visible as a "secondary tab row", restoring them back to the tabs row when clicked on.
It would be five-stars if it could allow multiple rows view of the same group (mimicking the real tabs row). Currently, it can only show a single row for each group, scrollable (although it can show multiple groups at once in several rows).
Also, it became a lot less easy to use since Firefox 29, because the "click to send to TMT" stopped working, so I have to open the context menu and select "send to TMT -> group". I hope this bug is soon fixed (TMT 1.4.5).
Missing tabs! Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles
I have seen that other people have complained about this. When there are lots of tabs, Firefox becomes slow and, sometimes (more often than it should) doesn't load some tabs (they stay on about:blank). It usually happens when loading a session or after a restart (because Firefox does a session reloading). That triggers this add-on, which promptly clears all about:blank tabs, except one, as they all look the same. It's a problem with Firefox loading sessions, but made worse with this add-on's action, which doesn't wait for the tabs to fully load before cleaning (actually, I don't even know if that is possible, as it's a Firefox problem handling more than, say, some hundreds of tabs). A solution could be to not automatically close duplicated tabs, just new duplicated tabs, with an option to manually trigger a duplicated tabs clean-up.
Works, barely, and not as expected Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
I had this problem: I needed to check hundreds of entries on a government private secure system for specific information, which might or might not be available, and data-mine it, that is, copy specific records and nothing more, as it would be hellish to filter out the unnecessary data if I had to copy all the displayed information. The system itself stinks, it does not have a fixed Page layout, so a global macro would never work (it's impossible to tell where on the screen a specific button, link or 'clickable' icon will be displayed, so it's necessary to parse each page, looking for that specific element). To make things worse, the data are "random", in the sense that one entry may return different types and amounts of records, so it's impossible to jump to specific tables, rows, lines, pages or whatever, as they may be displayed on different positions along the Page or may not even exist for some entries, being the text above the tables the only clues as to what are inside them (each table is preceded by a title as text inside a "decorated box" or something).
That said, I decided to give iMacros a try, as its maker bragged a lot about its data-mining capabilities... The task was somewhat simple, despite the complications afore mentioned. I had to repeat this task, in this order: (1) click on a pop-up menu option (which opens only when I hover the mouse over the menu), (2) fill a field with the entry code (which was on the clipboard, copied from a text list file), (3) click on a submit button, which could be placed anywhere on the screen, (4) wait for the results to appear (which might take just a few seconds or many minutes or even stall and require retrying), (5) check if there was any result or a "not found" message (which also had to be captured, to acknowledge that the entry was not registered on the system), (6) seek for the datum of interest and (7) copy it to clipboard (so it could be saved on a text file).
So, yes, iMacro works, but only for some very specific dumbly repetitive tasks (maybe), not for slightly more complex tasks that require data checking and that have variable input and return data. If it works for you, good for you, otherwise, don't even waste your time reading the upvotes ("great add-on", "saved my life", "rocks!") that show no hints of what the problems were and how they solved them. By the way, the closest approach I could get to solving my problem was using an external scripting language (AutoHotkey). I still had to do some steps manually, but could automate most of the work (I could have automate more, even completely, but that would be too much work, as I would have to parse the whole Pages and I was not in the mood for that...)
Spying, Failing and Dying Noté 1 sur 5 étoiles
This add-on has two problems, one is bearable, because it seems to be some kind of incompatibility or error with YouTube, the other is unacceptable, because it's done on purpose:
1 - the good: this add-on comes with a muxer (ffmpeg), it can download 1080 HD videos and mux with downloaded audio, creating a complete AV file, so one that doesn't know how to do that won't have to worry about it.
2 - the bad: this add-on comes with Surf Canyon spyware installed and doesn't warn the user about it. Some people might think it would be worth being spied ("'cause I never do anything wrong, so I don't have anything to hide") as long as the add-on works. Well, there are lots of other add-ons that do exactly what this one does and that don't spy on your browsing behaviour. Besides, this add-on doesn't work all the time (read below), so, live and let it die!
3 - the ugly: some videos, for some reason, are not downloadable, for example, "Reversal of The Heart" (animation) on YouTube. All video types appear as "N/A" ("not available", I guess, but why the slash and not "N.A." or just "NA"...?! 0K, I'm being petty, but I feel like I can, after having found the ugly number 2 under the hood...)
Should be embedded into Mozilla's code. Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
This is one of those add-ons that should simply be merged into Mozilla's codes (Firefox, Thunderbird etc.), as the functions added should be part of the Add-ons Manager context menu just out-of-the-box.
Really Quick, a Time Saver! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Till now, I used Configuration Mania to set up the "user agent" string, but changes only take effect after restarting Firefox, what is a nuisance most of the time. This add-on not only makes changes take effect immediately, but it doesn't even required me to restart Firefox after being installed! I downloaded it, installed it, deceived the stupid bank server, accessed my account with no problem at all and now I'm writing this review! I didn't have to close a single tab on Firefox or anything, it worked perfectly out-of-the-box! It saved me a lot of time, as I do a lot of work on-line that requires Firefox to be set and running nonstop.
The only "problem" I see is that it doesn't keep history of previously set strings, but that's really no big deal, as I can keep the strings I use most in a file somewhere (or copy one fresh from Configuration Mania, for that matter).
