Mé recenze

No more Facebook redirect

Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Does what it says.

Turn Off the Lights

Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

A great improvement for watching video. Professionally done.

Tato recenze je pro předchozí verzi doplňku (2.3.0.5). 

Send Tab URLs

OK... Ohodnoceno 2 z 5 hvězdiček

Multiple Tab Handler is superior (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/multiple-tab-handler/)

Cookies Manager+

Useful Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Useful but be careful not to use Cookies Manager+ to delete all your cookies - it's extremely slow (100% CPU for several minutes before I gave up) - whereas Firefox's built-in function is instant.

StretchClock Break Reminder - Desk Yoga

Takes up a lot of room Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

It would be great except for the fact that it takes up a lot of room in the add-ons bar and can't be moved.

FormFox

Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Doesn't work on all forms, but sometimes is better than never.

SSLGuard

Too difficult Ohodnoceno 2 z 5 hvězdiček

Am I right in thinking this is only useful for people who don't notice that they're not on an HTTPS page?

Seems this isn't quite ready yet, given the things it breaks, or worth the added complexity...

CryptoFox

Bad UI Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

The crappy UI means I'd stick with the less-featured Fire Encrypter (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fire-encrypter/). A toolbar isn't an appropriate interface (especially as the only interface) for a tool that isn't in constant use - besides which the text input/output box should be more than one line high.

Master Password+

Nice Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Does stuff that should be built in to Firefox. However doesn't hide the titlebar if you're using an add-on that changes it (eg. Customize Titlebar https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/customize-titlebar/)

Hostname in Titlebar

Good but there is better Ohodnoceno 2 z 5 hvězdiček

Customize Titlebar has more options https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/customize-titlebar/

Search Engine Security

Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

For better privacy, block all referrers with Redirect Remover https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/redirect-remover/

JS Switch

Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

Use NoScript instead, it's much better for privacy and security

Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out (TACO)

Good for newbies Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

Good for newbies who want a simple privacy upgrade. For real effectiveness you need more advanced addons. I recommend Beef Taco https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/beef-taco-targeted-advertising/ along with NoScript and others https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/gracefool/privacy/

The website http://www.abine.com/preview/taco.php is misleading: Flash cookies are deleted along with other cookies since Firefox 4, so you don't need that feature, and as long as you allow Javascript on the page, you can be tracked and cookies can be re-created http://gracefool.com/how-you-have-no-real-privacy-on-the-internet

Beef Taco (Targeted Advertising Cookie Opt-Out)

Simple and good Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Has worked for me under every version of Firefox with WinXP. And Firefox doesn't delete the cookies (despite the 27 Sep review).

You can force add-on compatibility by adding a new boolean preference in about:config "extensions.checkCompatibility.9.0" and setting it to false (Where "9.0" is your major Firefox version, put a "b" on the end if you're using a beta).

IDND

Nice Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Great extension, should be built-in. As of Firefox 9.0.1 (which it *does* work with), the icon can be moved around, so you can put it next to the address-bar.

IDND

Needs update Ohodnoceno 4 z 5 hvězdiček

Good addition that does what it says, but should be updated to use the new-style statusbar icon so it can be moved around.

HeaderControl

Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Thanks heaps Torvin, that works! I suggest that if you still dont have a reply in a month or two, upload it as a new add-on eg. HeaderControl 2 / HeaderControl fixed.

New Tab Homepage

worse than normal behaviour Ohodnoceno 1 z 5 hvězdiček

Normally when you make a new tab you can immediately start typing into the address bar. Unfortunately, with this add-on you have to press Ctrl-A then Delete to remove the current contents before you can search / type an address :(

Stop Autoplay

OK but Ohodnoceno 3 z 5 hvězdiček

Works great but annoyingly hard to whitelist - you have to go to about:addons, Stop Autoplay > Options, Whitelist tab, enter URL... Also apparently it blocks embedded audio invisibly, so don't use this if you do want to hear background music sometimes.

Redirect Remover

Good Ohodnoceno 5 z 5 hvězdiček

Good but could do with some improvements, eg. filtering URLs based on the page they are on
