My Reviews

Custom Buttons

solid. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I use some buttons since years. (Clear SearchBar, URL-Tools, Easy Reader (1-click) and some others...)

Now, with FF 43 I feel no difference.

FF is as slow as usual ;-) (Have >40 addons installed)

The buttons, I use work good, since years.

I hope, they will work a lot of years along.

Classic Theme Restorer

I'm so lost without it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I would have dropped ff if this add-on wouldn't be.

Context Menu Image Saver

Very identical to "Save Image in Folder" Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Has some less options to configure:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/save-image-in-folder

Add-ons Manager Context Menu

Really is useful and intuitive Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Offers all options which are available. perfect!

Small and useful thing missing:
A shown addon-id should be next to the COPY-ID entry (like mentioned by alta88)

Add Directly to Unsorted Bookmarks

saves clicks! :-) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

this addon: 2 clicks: context-menu on link/or page itself + "bookmark this page/link to unsorted"
ff-default: 4 clicks: show your bookmarks (ff menü) + open the unsorted bookmarks folder + add bookmark here + OK

I wish, the "bookmark this link to unsorted" was in the "show your bookmarks"-menu too, because the links in the content menu are too mixed up.

clicking on a link, the entry "bookmark this link to unsorted" is next to default bookmark text "bookmark this link".
on a page, the entry "bookmark this page to unsorted" is somewhere else entirely, when you look on the default "bookmark this page".

Send Tab to Device

works plain and simple (could be a little bit more userfrienly) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

great and simple addon! does the work reliable!

BUT the UI is quite too small for all devices here (7) so I need to scroll down everytime I'd like to send a tab to another device.

I wished for something like this: remember last choice and preselect, so I just need to press enter or click OK. (would be very fast to use then!)

Resizable window to see all devices at once.

Also, the Addon cannt be invoked from the context menu of a tab in the tabbar, which would made perfectly sense and would be intuitive too.

Anyways, does the job.

DragIt (formerly Drag de Go)

please don't stop developing! please. pretty please! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

it is such a useful addon!
it makes surfers life so hard, without it...

Tree Style Tab

one of the best (because useful) addons! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

unfortunately, with the last FF updates (or the addon itself?) it started to forget the size of the right-tabbar after a FF 43.x restart on mac/el capitan.
It is annoying to resize the tabbar on every browsers start, but without that right tabbar I wouln't want to surf the net anymore!

I don't care about cookies

I REALLY care about cookies....but don't care about the nags! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...so the addon should be renamed :-)
just kidding. does, what it says and has a way to add new annoying nags!
nice and thanks!

Searchbar Autosizer

does not work atm, be patient. very patient :-) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well, it worked great for all the years, but stopped as mozilla made big changes to the whole firefox layout going to the smart-/tablet-world... it must be really hard for the developers of "our" addons to keep up with mozillas changes, so I guess, it'll take a while for this neat addon to work again. If ever....

Evernote Web Clipper

evernote should pay the developer(s) Rated 1 out of 5 stars

obviously, the developer(s) of this piece of s...oftware, never test their code in real life under real conditions...like, with a mac (el capitan, 10.11.x) and firefox (43.x) and different settings, like "save clips to native client"

I wish, evernote would pay the developers more money (does not seem to me, that they get a penny for their work...), so they have a reason to not just sit on their chairs and waiting for lunchtime to begin...

in short: does not work in this version too

Mozilla Labs: Prospector - Find Suggest

it is useful, when it works Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Ok, as I wrote before, the addon has problems with other find-"extender"-addons. now, on a plain ff43, this addon sometimes works, but most of the time it doesn't. I couldn't reproduce why its sometimes wotking with the same words on the same page, and sometimes not... silly, but still useful.

Google Image Search

works with online (http://) and offline (file://) images. great ease! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

just missing an icon in the context menu...

Addons Quick Search

neat! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

does, what it says!

Search by Image for Google

does not work for local images, like file:///Users/user/Downloads/x.png Rated 3 out of 5 stars

On mac with ff43, rightclick on i.e. file:///Users/user/Downloads/x.png, the addon just opens the google upload-page for images: https://www.google.com/imghp?sbi=1&gws_rd=ssl

Works OK on remote images.

I use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-similar-images/ for local images instead.

Add to Search Bar

what a relief! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

does what it says. plain and simple! great addon!
Thank you!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.8.1-signed). 

Evernote Web Clipper

as usual...does not work on mac Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After reinstalling the addon, because the last version(s) did not work, I now have an Addon, which seems to miss the translations in the options. %there% %are% %no% %localized% %texts%, but thats not the main problem.

The main problem, is (again): IT SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK.

My Evernote Client is starting, when I click on the elephand icon, but nothing happens after then.

It does not matter, if I chose to clip into native client, file, or cloud.
It does not matter, if I'm loged in or not to the evernote service when saving to cloud
It does not matter, what settings I set up, have tried every combination of notebooks
...
Also, its very confusing to have TWO ways to set up the preferences. First, the settings I can set up in the FireFox Addon preferences, AND the settings while clicking on Options in the clipper dialogue... which one counts?

What the heck is a notebook GUID and *why* should I know about it?
Which is my default notebook and where does my clipped notes fly, when chosing "always add to the default notebook"?

Again, a total disappointment for a paid service.
Evernote team does not give any helpful support, as usual.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.15.1-signed).  This user has other reviews of this add-on.

Quick Accept-Language Switcher

simple and useful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...but, as a lazy user, living in 2015, it would be nice to have a selection pulldown to choose from.
Maybe some user editable pre selections, I can choose from...

Add-on Preferences Button

wow! so tiny, so useful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's a (virtual) pain, that you need to click so many times to finally have a look (or can change) the options of an addon. I always wanted something like a button or a faster way to access the options of an addon.
Now I have found something, which does the job!
Thank you!

iCloud Bookmarks

no restart, but reboot... Rated 1 out of 5 stars

A restartless addon, which requires you to download additional software from apple which FORCES you to REBOOT your computer....
(not, that its just bad to dl additional software for a browser addon, but there is no reference anywhere on the description here.)

Second, its not possible to remove/drag'n'drop the cloud-icon from the toolbar to another toolbar in the customizing mode. Not funny.

Yeah! those are the things we need!

(P.S. this addon is for windows only, so I wonder, what happens, if the user has an activated ff weave/sync account and syncs the browsers addons+config to a running ff on mac...I guess, it'll end up very very badly....)
