Trochu detailněji...

I should probably introduce myself after participating after such a long while.

I'm an anonymous participant in the Mozilla project, focusing on testing and reviewing add-ons: giving good reviews to add-ons I've tested that have worked for me, or bad reviews to ones that install malware (although there are very few, there are some that have shady agreements that may as well be virus-loaded). I come across a lot of bugs in the process and will either confirm if it works with Firefox or not, posting the version I'm using.

I haven't created any add-ons, nor do I feel the need to; right now I'm happy sending feedback to developers, posting occasional bug reports, or asking for new features. I figure that for every person who uses Mozilla, only about 1 in 10 will actually sign up, so I aim to be their voice.

Down for Everyone or Just me

Thumbs up! Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Nice automation. A keeper for me--I've had to make do with bookmarklets.

Redirect Check Client

Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Works pretty well. There is a possible snag with 503 (Service unavailable): it never seems to load and return the HTTP status. Design flaw...?

Scan Url with

DO NOT USE!!! Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

This add-on is supposed to scan sites for malware, but has a SERIOUS design flaw: any redirects to external sites are not resolved, sending the host site for examination (e.g., a google search for a bad website will turn up "okay"; same thing with yahoo or any search engine).

A concrete example if anybody needs to replicate this: with the add-on installed, do a google search for the malicious porn site "playporn.to"
* Right click and select "Scan link with... >> SiteAdvisor". The URL fed into siteadvisor will turn up green and display the analysis for GOOGLE: https://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/http%3A//www.google.com/url%3Fsa%3Dt. This is because google using a tracking method that obfuscates links like http://google.com?redirect=siteresult
* In the tab at siteadvisor.com, search for "playporn.to". It will come up DANGEROUS (see for yourself at https://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/playporn.to).

Anybody searching for anything will be no better off with this, just have a false sense of security.

Enforce Encryption

Lightweight security tool Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

This addon is a sweet idea: sites such as Google Search, Wikipedia, and YouTube offer encryption but don't usually ask the user for their preferences. Rather than adding https:// to the beginning of a URL for every session for a site, you can check the box and have your browser remember.
Found no bugs with this addon, it works great.
A technical rundown of what Strict-transport security is can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_Strict_Transport_Security

Tabs Counter

Still works when others don't Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

The latest firefox release removed the addon bar and so the popular "tab-counter" (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/tab-counter-141863/) and "TabCounter" (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/tabcounter/) addons aren't working yet. This one still does. :-)

Note: It shows the *total* number of tabs you have open, not per-window.

@developer: Any way to remove that annoying right-side margin? It would be a perfect lightweight addon otherwise.

Always Show History Settings

Cool.

CookieExFilter

Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Very simple, and so intuitive I question why Mozilla doesn't install this by default. Great add-on. Thank you.

Personas Interactive Theme Engine

ADWARE—READ THE FINE PRINT! Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

Yes, technically it does allow you to get themes. But at the cost of redecorating your browser with their adverts, allowing them to insert spam in any form in your browser, "hijack" it, reset your searchbar, homepage, themes, add advertisements, etc. I tried it and was NOT happy with it.

I wanted to link to the 10th section in particular, but there wasn't a table of contents. So here's a piece of the agreement that shows what I'm talking about:

Privacy Protector

Found the Icon, No Problem Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

I didn't experience the missing icon problem.

If anybody else has trouble finding the icon, it's probably "hiding" in the "other, non-default icons" section of the browser. To find those icons, see the article about customizing Firefox's toolbars: https://support.mozilla.org/kb/customize-firefox-controls-buttons-and-toolbars

I'm guessing the comment below was around the time when the "add-on bar" was removed from Mozilla Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/kb/what-happened-to-the-add-on-bar

You can put it in your main bar, or install it from https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/the-addon-bar/

Closing notes: using Firefox 30.0 (current).

Animated pikachu

Nice theme but a bit buggy Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

I like the nostalgic Pokemon look.

Unfortunately I've noticed that upon restarting the browser Pikachu stops running :-(

I wonder if this is just me?...

Cookies Manager+

Plenty of features; working for me in FF 30.0 Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

This add-on has been working for me consistently, so perhaps the issue WileyM was having with Firefox 29.0.1 was isolated (or I somehow missed a break in functionality before I updated Firefox)?

The ability to sort, check, set, edit, and block cookies makes this add-on above-and-beyond. Other add-ons, such as Biscuit and Quick&Clean, are not nearly as fine-toothed and as precise.

In particular, I enjoy the ability to spot cookies I've noticed tend to "hide" with different but equivalent names: http://example.com, http://www.example.com, and http://subdomain.example.com can all be sorted now to review them all "per site" than strictly alphabetically (Cookie Manager+ --> Tools --> Options).

Anyway, excellent add-on. A bit advanced, so possibly overwhelming for 1st-time privacy fanatics, but equipped well for powerusers familiar with cookies.

Source Templates Generator

Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

Pretty good - 4 functions for citing. Even works with Firefox version 26.

Do you think you could make an English version though? (it's in French)

Copy Link Title

Works when it feels like it Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

I right-clicked on "Copy-Link-Title" by Erik Vold and tried to paste it here, but it didn't work; it pasted something else I had copied before.

It's really Firefox's fault, by keeping us protected from malware they (have to) keep updating, so extensions readily become outdated. I'm working with FF 24.0 btw. The strange thing about this add-on is that it does work sometimes, just not reliably...

Password Reuse Visualizer

Works in Firefox 24. Pretty neat.

Prevent Tab Overflow

Great add-on. Very useful.

Exactly what I was looking for. Nonpareil.

WhiteAlice, you f****** rock!!! Just thought I'd say. :)

Ghostery

Pretty good Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Pretty good. I had written a review complaining that the toolbar icon kept disappearing, and my Flash cookies were not being deleted upon exit, and was written back to be informed that the beta versions fix this (5.05 right now). Okay.

It does a pretty good job, allowing you fine-grained control over every tracker, cookies, and LSOs (super-cookies). Plus stuff like scanning images, iframes and the like for the paranoid (Tip: use Collusion's data to tell how well a security add-on is working).

It gets kind of annoying when you can't load a part of a page, but they do have an option to disable blocking for that tracker, no biggie for me (if you get frustrated by this, switch to DoNotTrackMe -- they have real-time tracker list updates). Glad that these kinds of tools are available to the public, and for free. That's pretty nifty. :)

Why isn't it working for me? Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

No Joy. I'm on FF 24.0, installed it and attempted to use it on YouTube. It neither blocks it, nor shows any signs of a "!!!" button. Am I missing something here, or is this a bug?

Restart FF Button

Okay add-on Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

In case you can't speak Russian, X3milk says, "in a dark theme icon is not visible" (courtesy of Google Translate).

Decent add-on. No big points, but no annoyances or issues. Does what it says. I like how it doesn't force you to use a hotkey, too.
