Self-Destructing Cookies

My Whitelist Holding Over 50 Websites is Gone Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Great addon except that my Whitelist suddenly disappeared and I can't even restore it from a backup.

I had over 50 websites whitelisted. And no way to restore/save/backup the file?

Where is the Whitelist stored? I am so tired of app developers hiding stuff (preset files, config files etc.) in obscure locations so we can't even back them up properly.

That Whitelist is/was my property. I created it. It belongs to me. Now where is it?

I have searched my profiles folder repeatedly. If it's in there, it's embedded in some obscure, user inaccessible file that I can't find.

Additionally, I see no place to save/import/export the White list.

How can I used this extension when I can't trust it. For the record, the Whitelist got cleared after an unauthorized FF update(that's another issue). Why?

My Sunday afternoon hijacked by crappy softwared, once again.

Cookie Controller

Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

This addon is worse than having no cookie manager at all. As others have reported, sites you have blocked will end up in the allowed list. I just confirmed this for the second time.

I have it set to deny all sites unless I grant permission. Then it quietly reverts to allow all sites.

This addon is misleading and a threat to users' security and privacy. It should be removed until it is fixed.

Cookie Monster

Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

This is a terrible addon. I don't think it could be more confusing to use.And the limitation are striking.

StopFingerprinting

HIGHLY MISLEADING - THIS DOES NOT STOP FINGERPRINTING Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

This addon is highly misleading. It suggests that it help to stop or limit fingerprinting, when what it's actually doing is uploading your browser fingerprint to a private server.

Additionally, this addon creator is not a credible researcher and has no credentials. There's not even a way to contact this person or person.

As such, this listing should be deleted immediately.

A Better Firefox Add-on Bar

Broken Bewertet mit 1 von 5 Sternen

Bummer. Installing this made the Addon Bar disappear using FF 28.0.

ScrapBook

Beware of Choosing This Addon Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

I've been using Scrapbook/Scrapbook Plus for many years. I am a researcher and decided to use Scrapbook/Plus to store pages for my work.

A few years ago, as the number of saved documents reached the thousands, I realized that Scrapbook was not a wise choice. Finding things I had saved has become very difficult. Organizing your saved pages/snippets is done through folders. If your hierarchical structure is simple, no problem.

But for large archives, with overlapping subject matter, this becomes extremely difficult. In this case, Tags are needed.

Also, the Search function is highly deficient. For example, a search for the term "Persona" will return every page/snippet with the terms "personal', "personality", etc.

This is just one of many limitations of the primitive and ineffective search function.

It also has to completely rebuild the cache whenever you do a search. This may take a long time depending on the size/number of docs (for me it takes a really long time, over a minute.)

Naturally, this makes one dread having to do a search, and deters me from accessing my own files when I'm busy or in a hurry.

The cache should be updated on Save. Not when you start a new search.

So for small archives, with a few folders of stuff, current Scrapbook is great. But for very large archives, with GBs of searchable data, I recommend something with Tags and better search capability. And obviously, I strongly encourage the developers to implement Tags.

ScrapBook

Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

Great for saving. Horrible for accessing what you've saved. I have thousands of pages saved from years of use. To organize it all, I create folders on the fly or navigate to folders that already exist. What I've found now is that it's really hard to find anything now. No tags are available. And even finding a folder is hard.

Scroll to Top/Bottom

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Perfect addon. I actually thought, hey, FF needs a way to go to the top with one click. So I searched and here it was.

No. It does not need to slow down or have more options. It is exactly and perfectly what it is.

FireDownload

Please Fix the "Freezes Firefox" Issue Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

Causes Firefox to freeze on big downloads. It's apparently had this problem for years judging by the dates of the complaints I found online.

Tab Mix Plus

Really? Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

Is it really possible this plugin has no setting to simply open ALL links in a new tab? If it's there, I can't find it. I can, however, find a setting to "Force to open in a new tab" with the option: "All links (Lock all tabs). But what's this "Lock all tabs" business. Annoying.

The only reason I'm forced to use Tabmixplus is because Firefox still doesn't have the obvious feature of allowing you to right-click and select "Duplicate Tabs." And I wouldn't need to open all tabs in a new link if Firefox didn't, after all these years, STILL lose your freakin place when you hit the back button half the time.

I appreciate the work that went into this addon. But it really needs this most obvious feature.

googlebar

Oh well Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

The first thing I tried, dragging some selected text into the search window, did not work as GT does.

Oh well. I may check in a year or so and give it another try.

CustomizeGoogle

Disappointing Bewertet mit 2 von 5 Sternen

If there was a way to customize which search engines are available I couldn't find it. I searched high and low too since I couldn't believe that option would be excluded.

I hope a future release will allow this feature. And if it does, I hope it will include the other Google databases currently not accessible without re-searching (books, scholar, news archives etc.)

It's hard to believe Google doesn't offer a custom tab feature. I would gladly pay if this mod filled the gap.
